This place is a cool hideaway from the bigger chain liquor stores. Exceptional staff and selection. Hell, most of the times I go there to have Beer Related conversations versus buying beer. I recommended this place to anyone.

This place is a great place if you like craft beer. The selection is fantastic and they have a very knowledgeable staff. The "create-your-own" six pack option is always a good thing. Before I moved to San Diego last month, I'd typically drop by the store 3-4 times a month to try different beers and would even pass up stores that were closer to me. The only criticism is that, because of the extensive selection, there were a few times that some of the less popular beers were beyond their expiration date--still drinkable, but weren't fresh.

Stopped here looking for local brews to take home to New England.

Nice big modern store in a shopping village/residential townhouse complex that looks like it was just finished.

Helpful though very busy staff.

Marvelous beer selection, although mostly sixpacks which you could break. Some in coolers, much out on shelves or stacked. A good-sized wall of singles in front. Selection not as good for the advanced imbiber as Philly's Craft Beer Outlet which I visited a few hours later, but interesting and varied enough for most tastes, and overall a much more pleasant shopping experience. Will be back the next time I'm driving that way.

I stopped in here on a whim, if I remember correctly, and I am glad that I did.

They have great prices (except on Mikkeller/Evil Twin), especially for singles towards a mix six. There is a whole wall just for bombers and they seem to get some rare stuff and it can stay around for a while. I think a lot of people either don't know about this place or assume it just isn't that great from the outside. It also might be that the people in the area just aren't too into craft. Also, it is a little out of the way for me.

I've never had to really ask for help and don't ever remember being asked if I needed help.

The atmosphere is pretty laid-back and normal. The aisle sizes can get a bit crowded depending on if they just got a shipment in or not.

I just stopped into Honeygo Wine & Spirits to pick up a six pack of some craft beers...

THE SELECTION HAS GONE THROUGH THE ROOF!!!

I was told they are carrying well in excess of 1200 different craft & import beers. It shows.

In response to review from MENDVICDOG, the service was beyond expectation. I was greeted with a 'Hello' and was asked 'May we help you find anything?' The expertise of their staff when it came to craft beers was phenomenal. the person who waited on me was Justin. HE LOVES BEER!!! He helped me pick out several unique beers I would not have tried. He nailed it. Those beers really surprised me.

I stop in frequently and am always greeted with a freindly 'Hello. How are you?'

Honeygo Wine & Spirits - Keep up the GREAT work.

Cheers!

Stopped in here a few nights ago since a little birdie told me they still had some bottles of Parabola left. Sadly, they had been snatched up a little while before I got there. This place has a lot of beers that I had not seen at other places in the area, but some of them seemed like they had been there for quite a while. For instance they seemed to have a ton of old and new bottles of evil twin stuff. The organization of this place is a bit lacking since some bottles are just in boxes and you kind of have to dig through stuff. My main problem is that this place is cramped. I had to turn sideways to fit down some of the aisles, which made it difficult to see what was on the lower shelves. No one asked me if I needed help even though there were 3 employees doing nothing. Prices seemed reasonable for the area.

So, I made a quick trip up to Honeygo finally. Having tried Seven Courts before this, I was amazed. Seven really didn't have much. Honeygo, while kinda cramped, had a great selection. Good single bottle and fridge choices.

The staff was friendly, and didn't bother me while I was looking. Prices were pretty much in line with everywhere in the area.

I was surprised that, for the space, this place had a better choice than Beltway. The only place I think I've found better was Shawan. They even had a small amount of glassware. Since I collect pint glasses, this is a lil perk to me.

Had been meaning to stop by for some, and finally had the chance the other day.

Located in a strip mall in Perry Hall, there's nothing from the location or outside appearance that would make you think there's anything extraordinary about this place. Also, when you first walk in, as you turn to the left, you see this mountain of macro swill in the corner. Talk about a poor first impression! However, as you turn to the right, you then see a flat out outstanding, huge selection of craft beer and imports. This place reminds me somewhat of the Perfect Pour (I liked this place a LOT more), as the beer selection is oddly laid out, with little rhyme or reason to organization. Some beers are organized by brewery, but there also seemed to be a style section, as well as a very large bomber selection area. There were also a number of beer displays, which often times overlapped the shelf selection. It was a bit confusing, but I can't say it bothered me, as I enjoyed wandering through the aisles checking out the selection.

If there is any criticism I would make, it's that it appeared there was a fair amount of stuff that had been sitting around for a while (still a lot of X-mas and Winter stuff on the floor, and a bomber of double jack I purchased tasted as if it had been sitting around for several months at least). However, given the huge amount of inventory, I think that's pretty much unavoidable, but it's something one needs to be aware of when shopping for IPA's and the like. Service was fine.... no one came by to ask if I needed any assistance or help; this is the kind of store where you need to come up front if you have a question.

Prices are the area norm or a bit less. No complaints in that regard (my 4 pack of hoptimum was $9.99, and my bomber of double jack was $8.49).

This place is kind of out of the way for me, otherwise I'd be over here all the time. It's fairly close to I-95, and so is something to keep in mind if one is coming into or driving out of Baltimore. In any event, this place is flat out excellent.

After dropping my wife off at BWI, my plan was to drop by this place on the way home. Selection is very good, all the local and national craft beers are here, a number of variety 12 packs, and a solid assortment of imports. This seemed to be in quite an up scale shopping center, so my old car and I felt just a bit out of place, but singles, bombers, 6ers, cases, are all available and prices are reasonable. Now the only drawback, prices on the beers. I would estimate that about 40% of the beer on display here is not priced. The staff began to get irritated on my repeated trips to the register to inquire "how much is this one, how much is that one?" Pricing the beers ends this problem. You do get a 10% discount on a mixed 6er, but you won't know what the cost is anyway. Overall a good shop and I would advise stopping in if in the area.

Honeygo is a great hot spot for great craft beer in the Baltimore area. They have a huge selection of American and imported craft beer. They have a huge selection of singles to try along with many six packs. They guys that work in the store are incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. If they don't have a beer you are looking for, they will try to get it into the store for you also. The prices are extremely reasonable. They also give you 10% off if you buy a mixed 6 pack of bottles of any size, even 750ml bottles. They also have a point system if you are a regular which is free to sign up for. You get points for your purchases and once you get a certain number of points, they give you a gift card to spend in the store whenever you want. This is a great craft beer store with a great selection for great prices with great people who really care about their customers and their community. Cheers to you Honeygo!

My friend told me about this place on a recent visit to the area, and I demanded we stop. I wasn't looking for anything specifically, but I got a major score with some Bruery: two bottles of Marron Acidife (which dried up back home immediately after release), and somehow, a bottle of Coton. I also found something sitting on the shelf that made my mouth drop....some Cantillon. There were about 4-6 bottles of Rose de Gambrinus on the shelf, and I had to snag one. Prices were about standard. They also had a nice glassware section in the corner, and I picked up a nice Westmalle chalice. The staff was very friendly. Would definitely come back here again, as they had a huge selection of stuff I can't get in PA. Pretty close to Red Brick, so that would be a nice trip...they also had DuClaw bottles, which is a brewery I'd really like to get more into after my visit to the brewpub.

Visited while in town on business. This place is great for the business traveler. The selection is great and they have the wall of singles which allows you to try beers you can't get at home and get in quantities that won't go to waste. They have a smaller selection of singles in a cooler.

The staff was very friendly and offered up some suggestions for local beers. I discovered Heavy Seas Loose Cannon IPA here, which has become a favorite in locations where I can get it.

The store is located in a newer development which is nice with easy parking.

It's well worth a stop if you are in the area.

I live less than a mile away from Honeygo Wine & Spirits and go there at least twice a month. They have a wonderful assortment of singles on the Beer Wall including some pretty rare beers. If you build a six pack from the Beer Wall they give you 10% off! They have a decent cold selection, as well as a few rows of 4pks & 6pks not refridgerated. The staff is friendly and knowledgable on everything beer. You want a specific beer? Ask them and they will order it for you on the spot, come back in a week...there it is! (I know from experience getting Rochefort 6) Nice area of town, great byob restuarants in the little avenue where Honeygo Wine & Spirits is located. All in all, I am greatful to have such an amazing beer store so close to my home!

Made a stop here while visiting family in the Baltimore area. Nice location in a new-ish mall area. Easy to find, with plenty of parking around the store. Overall, great selection of stuff. Several coolers of cases, a few aisles of six-packs, and then a wall of singles. Saw lots of Dogfish Head, Great Divide, Flying Dog, and more. I especially liked the whole wall of singles - excellent selection there. You get a 10% discount on a mixed 6-pack. Excellent service - the guys we spoke to were very knowledgeable. Great place!

Although they are in Baltimore County we are talking about an A+ quality place. I counted over 500 brews - way too many great Belgians and several brews I'd never heard of. Check out the beer manager - too much - he's way more than knowledgeble. Could have spent my paycheck - but hey gotta pay the rent.

I was told by the manager that they just expanded the beer section and it takes up a good amount of store including their huge beer wall.

Unlike the great Perfect Pour you can mix and match your own 6 packs for 10% off no matter if they are 12oz, 11.2oz, 750ml, 22oz, as long as its a single beer it can be put into the mix and match.

Final thing they have a twitter which they will but up daily beer discounts just the other day they did a rainy day special 25% off all beers over 12ozs. im pretty sure the twitter is linked on this page def a good follow if ur on twitter

Living in the White Marsh area has it's advantages and is disadvantages. One of the biggest drawbacks for years was lack of good beer selection. That's changed with the arrival of Beltway's and Honeygo Wine's offerings.

Honeygo Wines has the edge over all others in the area for craft and hard-to-find beers. They get new arrivals every Friday to keep their selection fresh & exciting. The wall to the left of the main entrance is packed with singles of all types and sizes. The only issue I have is they could stock more Belgian Dark ales but that might be just a seasonal thing. They also have a great team of people to help you choose. Ask for Alex, he will find you the perfect brew or bust. Another great thing is that they're engaging the beer lover's community with regular tastings and special events.

I can't give this a 5 because only Perfect Pour is a 5 and all others are measured against them.

I've lived around the corner from this place for two years, and never would have guessed it to have such a great selection of regional/craft/micro brew! Not the biggest selection in the state of Maryland... but probably the best I've come across so-far in the White Marsh area... Nice clean store, well organized, reasonably helpful staff.

I haven't asked them to bring anything in on special order yet, but I have been told that they are willing to do so... bonus!

The only complaint I have is with their website, and its complete lack of content... it would be great if they could expand on this, listing the brews that they carry...

We've been wanting to check this place out for a while now, and finally made an effort after a trip to the relatively nearby Whitemarsh area. This is located in the neat and nice looking Honeygo Village Center, along with a bunch of other retail shops, restaurants, and businesses. I like the look of the store immediately, being clean, bright, and well organized. While the majority of the space is dedicated to wine, the entire front left of the store is all beer. Macros are stacked conveniently right in front (as you walk in), so if that's what you're interested in, you can grab it and head right to the registers. Of course, we were interested in their micro and import selections and with this they did not disappoint.

They have a rather large rack set up with an emphasis on singles (and they offer a 10% discount on mixed sixers) and the selection of American Micros was very solid, including a great mix of standards, seasonal selections, and locals. I would call their import selection more solid than spectacular, with your standard mix of Trappist Ales and other easier to find offerings. Still solid though. They also had a good selection of six-packs available, representing a good bit of what was already on the singles shelf.

There is also a more limited selection of singles and sixers available already chilled in coolers, being much less than what I've seen at other Baltimore area stores. Prices seemed right on with other stores in the area, maybe being just a touch more. Someone approached us after a few minutes of browsing to ask if we needed any assistance, so no problems with the service report. This was an extremely solid stop with a nice atmosphere and good selection. We'd definitely be willing to make a short detour to stop in again next time we're in the area.

Quality: The store is always in tip top shape, very clean and very organized. Not that any of this affects the beer selection and the price but it's nice to go into a well kept store. This is as far from the discount liquor store as you can get.

Service: Some connoisseurs here and great people. Employee's have tried most of the beers in the store and can recommend anything for you. Nice, and respectful.

Selection: I have not been to another store with a better selection. So many of the cold box doors are filled with micro's. They even have an entire WALL of individual bottles that you can create your own 6-pack with. Plenty of micro's on the shelves too. Just a lot of beer from all over the world.

Value: ... I wanted to give a $$ but this store is extremely nice and I'm sure it needs a couple extra pennies to keep it that way. Can't be more than a dollar difference on most products.

Honeygo has a decent selection of regional beers, and some classic German and Belgian examples. They don't have the widest selection around but it seems to have been thoughtfully picked. I didn't see too many beers that I wouldn't try. They had some sample packs from Ommegang, Schneider, and a set of 5 Belgian Microbrews.

It's a little pricey but you may have to suck it up if you want to find a rare beer. The service was friendly and helpful. If it wasn't 25 minutes away I would probably visit again but since I can get many of the same beers down the street I may not be back.

Honeygo Wine & Spirits was a surprise to me when I first entered it. A lot of places in my area have a good wine selection and not so good beer selection but not this place. This place devotes a large portion of its area to beer. Thats refreshing!

Honeygo Wine & Spirits tends to have a good variety of different beers and usually get most seasonal beers as well. They even have large singles of a lot of the different beers in case you would like to try just one before buying more.

I highly recommend this store, I'm lucky because its my local one!
