So there are plenty of informative reviews that I would only reiterate. Yep, quality and service are fantastic, especially if Brian the "beer guy" is there. Plenty of quality beers to be found: cold sixers of micros, belgians, germans, a growing section of italians, seasonal bombers, single 12 oz. bottles to mix and match. The store is clean, bright, organized and filled with many delicious libations (wine, duh, and liquor). They do unpretentious wine tastings at least a couple of days a week (fri. and sat.) and less frequent beer tastings. Prices are fair and while I can sometimes find things a few cents cheaper elsewhere, I am happy to support this establishment for the solid selection that they provide. When visiting the city of Baltimore, this is the place I suggest you visit to purchase some souvenirs.

Situated in the Hampden neighborhood, the Wine Source offers a real great selection. Parking is a pain, and the area is quite busy with walkable stores, and there aren't many spots but they eventually turn over.
The place is large on wine, but about 35% of the store is devoted to beer. It's nicely laid out in many sections, from seasonals, to the coolers, to the bombers, and then sections on sour beers and Belgians, UK, German, even to some degree hop and malt. There is also a small section of broken up 6 packs so that you can purchase 12 oz. bottles on a whim as well which is nice.
I conversed with the staff quite a bit and there wasn't a question they didn't have an answer for. THere's a lot of selection here and well defined. The other items of the store are also laid out real nicely as well.
There's a section with a nice cheese counter as well. This is a real good place for a real nice beer shopping experience in Baltimore.

I found this store by looking on Beer Advocate for great places to buy beer while I was in Baltimore visiting. I was very impressed with the selections offered not only with beer and wine, but with the cheese and meat selection as well. I drove to Delaware to visit Dogfish Head's brew pub I made sure to stop back in Maryland just to visit this awesome store. If you're anywhere close by, you should definitely check it out!

This place is very well designed with a nice layout. They have a small, cramped parking lot and if you can't get a spot in there then it can be a bit hard to find one without a bit of a hike.
Everything has its place and the staff is extremely friendly and welcoming. They are actually pretty knowledgeable too and willing to help out.
They have a pretty great selection, especially in bombers. There is a wall for singles but they all seem to be old and are usually by breweries that I have never heard of or ever heard good things about. That is what you can make your mix six out of, or you can ask to break up a six pack that isn't on the wall. They have a wall full of refrigerated beer as well. There is also a nice selection of cider here.
Also, they have a great selection of food, for food pairings. The food here is a bit exotic and pricey, but you can't get it at many other places. Their cheese selection is top notch.
