Finally made the trip to Blacksburg from Charlotte after hearing about this place for a while.

Not much to add to the other comments here other than to confirm that this place is heaven for beer lovers. The Belgian selection is first rate; the German selection is not quite as strong, but certainly adequate; a nice selection from the British Isles and a selective, but extensive domestic microbrew selection.

I wonder how much of their business comes from NC and what will happen to their business if the "pop the cap" campaign is successful? I cannot imagine that there is that much intrinsic demand for these kinds of beers in Blacksburg.

I have been visiting the Vintage Cellar for many years now as I attented Virginia Tech and I absolutely love this place. I have no idea how the previous review could have been made outside of the fact that with a smaller staff at times and a very busy store, sometimes you have to wait your turn for service. I have NEVER had a bad experience purchasing beer here and as far as service is concerned I have nothing but great things to say. The staff is extremely personable and will go out of their way to pair beverages with food or just to shoot the crap with you about a recent drinking experience.

Now about the beer. The Vintage Cellar has a HUGE selection of import beers from Belgium to Germany and anything in between in the form of singles and bombers and a very solid domestic selection. They tend to get a better distribution than other stores in the area.
