Wow, without a doubt the best selection of Belgians I've ever seen, and I've seen some good ones. This place may be small, but it's got an amazing amount of good beer in it. All killer, no filler all the way, almost no macros to be found (okay, a handful), and just some killer beer. American micros weren't as comprehensive as the Belgians, good selection of Rogue, Dogfish Head and Stoudt's. I'm sure there were some others too. Got the 60th Anniversary St. Bernardus Abt 12, a couple different types of Hitachino Nest beers, Watou Tripel, Uerige Sticke Alt, Rogue Smoke Beer and a few others. Jason knows his stuff and is very helpful. My timing was off a few hours, he mentioned that he had just got a big quarterly shipment in and had 15 new beers, which he was going to open (all of them) this evening for a tasting. Highly recommended, worth making a trip for.

I was here about a year ago when I was in Florida.

A: It's a beer store. Nothing fancy, just a bunch of finely packed in beers with all of the six-pack stuff in either door fridges or open-air ones.

Q: They had a big selection of very quality brews from all over the world. Not the most fancy store, but they had some rare stuff.

S: I'm of the mind of only wanting help when I ask for it. When I got to the counter to pay, I had a few questions and asked about some beers, but this was mostly because I was from out-of-state and was wondering about a few things that I didn't see myself there.

S: Excellent selection, especially compared to the ABC stores, Total Wine and Whole Foods that I visited while also down there on vacation. It was the only time I've seen Xyauyu bottle anywhere for God's sake.

V: I don't really have much to compare them with due to it being the only independent bottle shop that I had visited. The prices seemed similar to MD, but I hear we are a pretty expensive state for alcohol, so that might not be good for them. I can say that some of the bombers seemed quite expensive, like the Hoppin' Frog stuff, but I hear that is always expensive.

I visited the Knightly Spirits Of Williamsburg today while on a work trip to orlando. I was excited to find fresh Jai Alai, and some nice Terrapin beers! I was not so excited about the guy working the counter. He seemed to have a chip on his shoulder and got upset when I asked simple questions about the freshness of a beer or even to get an itemized receipt. Maybe he was just having a bad day but it made for an awkward moment as I payed for my beer. Will look forward to driving to the main store later this week and will update! Cheers!

Nice big store, with two full aisles of beer. They had all the standards and plenty of goodies for the serious beer geeks. I had to set a limit for myself to only what I could physically carry in my hands so I wouldn't spend too much. They carry everything from pales, to sours, to stouts, and everything in between.

Place had a decent selection, but could use a well needed expansion. There were a lot of beers from Cigar City which is great, but prices were a little high for the quality of beer you are getting. You can get better beer at a cheaper price up North. The service at the shop was great and I couldn't ask for more in that regard. Expand the beer selection and this place will earn a higher mark in my book.
