My buddy was stationed and Va Beach and raved about this place. He actually brought me some beer up when he came to visit. My fiance and i went to Va Beach for a DMB show and this was placed into our trip as ihad to see this place.

Walked in and was truly amazed with the selection of microbrews that they had. They also had a fine selection of wines that my fiance perused.

A great guy named Kevin (who works there) found me perusing and we striked up a good convo about some beers i should buy.

Service was awesome and Kevin seemed to know everything about each beer that was there. I love this place. Please think about opening one up in Harrisburg. I will gladly manage

Quality: The beers available are the best that the state of Virginia will allow within it's borders.

Service: Kevin offers a hand to those who are clueless as I was about a year ago at this time. If I have a question, he answers and if he doesn't know it he'll find out.

Selection: Best selection that I've seen in Hampton Roads. A section devoted strictly to UK beers, another for Belgian Style and then three for domestic brews. No macro's here, just craft deliciousness.

Value: About $0.50 more per bottle than the other guys here in town.

Visited here on a deployment to the area in June '07. I must say I was very favorably impressed by their beer selection, especially in the Belgian/Flemish ale area. Kevin was extremely personable both times I visited, sharing his impressions and thoughts of various beers, as well as helping direct the people I brought with me towards beers that would be to their tastes. I believe his assessments were accurate--the ones I helped with, I agreed completely with his suggestions. The man knows his brews!

I can't recommend the Grape and Gourmet more highly. Thanks, Kevin!

Great shop that is constantly expanding their selection. 250 brews and shooting for 300 soon. This is the place to go for your microbrew needs in the Virginia Beach area, with more to choose from than any of the other shops or grocers in town. Great service overall, and Kevin is the resident beer expert and will be able to answer any questions that may arise during your visit. Bottles are sold as singles, which is nice when it comes to trying singles. They hold tastings every Thursday evening. Easily recommended.

Grape and Gormet is a wonderful spot. They have a huge selection of wine and beer, but I mainly go for the beer. Kevin, the owner of the store, is very helpful and knowlegable about all things beer. The atmosphere is great, the selection is outstanding and the service is top notch. I know many peopl ein the area think the same way and I am sure that is why his customer base is so big. They have tastings once a week I think and a few special tastings on many of the weekends. Great place. Check it out.

I make monthly visits to this store. Each month I grab a sixer of round the world beers and every time is a treat. The staff is extremely cheerful and polite. Then again, who wouldn't be cheerful when you get to work around beer and wine all day. What a life. Kevin the owner is always friendly and very helpful. This guys knows everything and is always willing to share his knowledge and love of beer with anyone. Their selection is outstanding and although they are a bit pricey the also have some really great values in there as well. I highly recommend you give it a try.

My favorite place to buy beer. Great selection. Kevin is very knowledgeable and will give an honest opinion.

Case discounts and Thursday night tastings (which will include rare and expensive beers such as 2 Turtle Doves) are outstanding.

Kevin fights for better distribution and is very loyal to dedicated customers. They also have a great wine selection.

The only thing that would make this a better beer store is a growler station like the one at Charleston Beer Exchange. Otherwise great product, honest service, and good prices.
