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.

Tried this place while on vacation. The people working there were extremely nice and went out of their way to get a 12 pack of the Sierra Nevada Beer Camp for me. (The tough beer to get of the moment)
They had a really nice selection of beer that you were allowed to buy in singles. The only very slight knock that I had was that the cold selection was extremely minimal but they more than made up for it in room temp selection.
I would highly recommend this place to any BAs in the area.
