Gets the slight edge in Richmond, just for me personally, due to higher volume of cold-ready brews.
Great selection...somewhat nice staff.

Unless you head to the big chain store down on Robious, this is the best beer selection I've found south of the river. You've probably got a better shot at locally produced brews here than there. Ben and Tomy Harris are good fellows, helpful and friendly, and if they're more knowledgeable about wine than beer, well, it is called Once Upon a Vine. I appreciate that they're serious about beer, too. I also appreciate that they have beer tastings most Friday nights.

Nice shop situated right off of Chippenham on Forest Hill (near enough to Forest Hill). Relatively easy to get to.

Seemed like more space here than the other OUAV, but probably the same beer to wine ratio. Easy listening tunes softly playing as I looked through the amply spaced aisles for some beer ideas.

Quality was on par with most every other shop in town. Good number of within dates IPA's, but just a scant few blatantly out of date selections. Who knows with the Ballast Point stuff....

Kind lady asked me once if I needed assistance, to which I replied "Not just yet, but I'll let you know if I do." which sufficed quite well. She was ready to check my purchases as soon as I moved to the front. Otherwise, pretty quiet.

The selection seemed to mirror the other shop (who'd a thought...) but I think their were more canned selections here. I'll have to double check on that though. Good selection regardless.

A touch more pricey than a few other shops in town, but not enough to make me avoid the place. I'd seek this shop out again.
