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.

Superb customer service that will hold bottles for you either by phone, email, or via twitter. They carry a wonderful selection and are always willing to help you find what you are looking for. I can't speak any more highly of Deborah and Kevin!

Their wine selection is just as top-notch as the beer! You won't be dissapointed!

I've been going here since ~2008 when I got into craft beer. Back then I thought they were expensive, but that was from a fairly inexperienced viewpoint. Now they typically are right in line, and they bottle price everything, and give case discounts. They support local organizatoins too, and often have brewery and winery reps in to talk about their brewery's lineup while doing samplings.

Kevin will give honest opinions on whether you should try a beer based on what you say you like, and even warn you away from older discount beer if he knows you're a hophead. It's always great talking about our local scene and getting insight from him as well.

They have free juiceboxes for kids in the display fridge, nice little perk to keep the kids occupied long enough to take a short peek at the inventory. Great about letting people know about noteworthy new stuff on facebook and engaging with the customers.

Can't say enough good things.

This was on my list as a place to visit while I was down in Virginia Beach. It's a small, cozy little place with wine, beer and mead in good quantities. I was especially interested in their selection of B. Nektar meads since we don't get any in the Philadelphia area. The owners were friendly and even held some bottles aside for me until I arrived once I saw their posts on Facebook. Prices were completely reasonable for the market. Highly recommend this place if you're down in the area. As far as bottle selection goes, this and Total Wine were the best.

Great little store. Asked for a few recommendations on beers that aren't distributed to SoCal and the employee was knowledgeable enough to point me right to them. Talked with him and the owner (man) for a few minutes about craft beer in general and things they can't get there and things I can't get on California. Friendly place. Very good selection for the physical size of the store (not real big). I thought the prices were pretty good, though I don't have anything to compare them to except Ca prices. Definitely recommend this store. I can't imagine many other good beer stores like this are in this area.

Visited while on vacation in Virginia Beach. About 8 miles from VA Beach. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Good selection of quality beers. Didn't really notice a lot of old stock. Everything I got was fairly fresh. (Maybe I just got the popular stuff..). Prices are very reasonable ...being from New York.

Overall a great experience. Previous reviews I had read on this site were pretty spot on. The owner Kevin and his wife were beyond nice and went out of there way when I asked for something I couldn't find.

Wish this place was near me because I would go there all the time.
