After some quick research and review reading, this was my main target while on a recent vacation with the family to Sandbridge, VA.
Lots of wine and beer...a toy store for people like me! Very clean and nicely decorated...think of a fine gift shop, rather than a liquor store. The beer lines most of the right wall, with a few center islands also housing selections.
The selection and quality are awesome...right up there with any other major bottle shop. I imagine they get pretty much everything that is distro. in VA.
What really sets this place apart and garners such a high rating is the service. Both Kevin and Gabe are extremely knowledgeable and super big beer fans. It is easy to tell that they enjoy beer as much as anyone shopping there and are quick to tell you HONEST opinions about some of the offerings you may not be familiar with. Kevin even keeps juice boxes for kids (free!!) in one of the beer coolers...this tiny gesture shows what kind of person he is and what kind of business he runs.
I hope the people in that area of VA know how lucky they are to have such a great place right in their own back yard.

Fantastic bottle shop with a large assortment of styles and a great mix of regional, national and international brews. I'm from NC and hit this place on a recent vacation in VA, I picked up a handful of brews unavailable back home. They've got a very nice selection of Belgians. The customer service was top notch. Definitely a great bottle shop.
