At the outer edge of downtown Mountain View, a small bottle shop quietly sprung up a few months ago . It’s Jane’s Beer Store, a place that somehow exudes a friendly vibe despite its utilitarian decor. Inside, you’ll find every inch of shelf and cooler space is crammed with beers of every possible description. The dimly lit room gives the place a sense of reverence to the beers set before you. Jane’s expansive selection cannot possibly be summed up in a few sentences, or even paragraphs, but it does seem more heavily weighted towards California breweries and European imports. Other domestic breweries like Boulevard, Clown Shoes, and Dogfish Head make prominent appearances.
As the South Bay continues to awaken to the greater possibilities of beer, places like Jane’s Beer Store arise to meet this new awareness. It’s further proof that when it comes to beer, the good guys are winning.
