Yes, the store has a decent selection, and some hard to find beer, but the prices are through the roof. I'm sure the service is as good as the previous reviewers mention, but not worth it at their prices. A 6 pack of Founder's Stout was $18.00! I quickly put it back on the shelf and rapidly exited before I was charged admission. Check out Total Wine for a bigger selection and much better prices (in some cases almost 1/2 the price!). I don't mind paying a more to support a small local store, but I do have some limits.

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.

Visited 8-11-11 while on a brief trip to VA Beach. I had heard about thursday tastings so I made sure that was the day I visited. Gabe (I think) who hosted the tasting was very informative about what was being poured (Life and Limb II, Heavy Seas The Greater Pumpkin, among others), and although our conversation was brief, I enjoyed talking beer with him. For what seems to market itself as a wine and specialty shop, the beer selection was impressive. Tons of stuff I don't see in CA (Bell's, Founder's, Southern Tier, Schlafly, Hoppin Frog, etc.), and lots of it. I happily stocked up for the weekend (6ers of Two Hearted and Oberon, a few Southern Tier bombers and a couple other randoms), at what seemed to be a reasonable price (not sure how it compares to other shops in the area). I will definitely be visiting this place on future trips to the area.

Grape & Gourmet

In a strip mall off of Virginia Beach Blvd. Down the road from Gordon Biersch.
Walked in and this store is mostly about wine. Aside from the wine there are wine glasses, racks, t-shirts, etc... So much Ctotchke crap, but on your right there are several shelves of beer including a fridge. Every bottle is individually labeled and the selection covers a wide range. One table has plenty of German and English and another table had newer beers. The workers were very friendly and helpful and the customers were chatty. This is the best Liquor store in VB that I know of!

My haul;
Firestone Porter $5.99
Firestone Double Barrel $1.99
Blue Mtn Full Nelson $1.99
Breckenridge 471 $2.29
Breckenridge Vanilla $1.69
Breckenridge Oatmeal $1.69
Breckenridge Amber $1.69
New Holland Full Circle $1.89
New Holland Red Tulip $1.89
New Holland Sundog $1.89
Tommykncker Brown $2.29
Tommyknocker Butthead $1.49
Tommyknocker Cocoa $1.59
Green Flash Hop Red $2.19
Blue Grass NutBrown $1.59
Blue Grass Jefferson $4.35
Legend Hefe $4.49

I think it came to $50.

Highly recommended if you're in VB or driving through!

Great place! We arrived just before 7:00, but the employee in charge of the beer tasting event kept it open for us anyway.

A great, if not horribly large, selection of beer to choose from. Excellent brews from around the world, many of which are not that common. The beer selection is strictly craft and import. Craft tends to be East Coast with some California and Colorado brews thrown in.

I picked up some BrewDog, Brooklyn Brewery, and more importantly, some Irish beers I've never had before, from the Porterhouse (Dublin).

A definite stop for the beer lover if you're in VA Beach. I just wish it was closer to the beach itself. Still, it was worth the fifteen minute drive.

En route home from OBX, we detoured a few minutes in order to visit Grape & Gourmet. Well worth it.

Quality: A well-lit, clean store with a nice layout. Beer and wine only, with beer occupying the central right side of the store. Bottles, available in singles and sixpacks, are stacked on shelves and tables. Prices are well-displayed.

Service: I was greeted immediately on entering the store and was quickly directed to the area of the store that I needed to be in. The beers that I wanted were quickly identified and taken to the register. A very nice experience.

Selection: Top notch. Plenty of national, international and Virginia offerings. I was in search of some rare AleWerks: mission accomplished! Bell's and Founders, wide selections of each, are plentiful, as are Legend, Southern Tier and many, MANY others. If you can't find something good, you've had way too many beers. G&G will be a regular stop in our future voyages through Hampton Roads.

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.
