This place is an absolute gem in downtown Lexington. While it caters to wine upon entry, sneak to the left to get an awesome beer selection. Lots of beers I can't get on the eastern side of Virginia. There's a couple coolers in the front where some choice things might be aging.

This is primarily a wine shop, but they do stock some great beers and you never know what you'll find. Chuck is a great guy who's always willing to help find/get what you are looking for.

Right off the main drag in downtown Lexington. Free parking right down the hill past the visitors center. Quite a decent selection of craft brews from DFH/Stone/Bells/Victory with a few VA breweries sprinkled in. Owner was extremely helpful. Beer area could use some of the cases put away so getting around would be a tad easier. I am sure storage is at a premium. For it's size a very nice selection. I didnt buy any beer as I had just brought back some choice selections from Florida. I did, however, get me a case of Blenheim Ginger Ale, killer stuff if you have never had it. Worth stopping in for sure.

I had to make a short trip to Winchester, VA from Atlanta and back over a weekend and needed a store close to I-81 so I could pick up some items not available in Georgia. I contacted the owner via email and he promptly replied answering my questions, even offered to open the store on Sunday for me. I ended up with some DFH 120, DFH WWS, and Bells two hearted to carry home with me. I was delayed no more than 3o minutes getting off the interstate, shopping, and back on. I would definately recommend this store to anyone.

I concur with Pinotboy007. I visited this business in March 2009 on my way to Devil's Backbone Brewery in Roseland, Virginia and was very suprised with the selection of beer and foods. I did not make it to the wine section. Customer service was very knowledgable, receptive and willing to order product not on the shelves. WSP carries Bell's and consequently I was able to purchase my yearly Hopslam stash without problems. I noted a nice selection of Belgians. Prices are very competitive. I would definitely patronize this business when traveling in the area.

Quality: A very neat shop. First-rate experience in a unique, small city shop near the Visitor's Center. The owner even has some unique beer/wine glasses in case you're in town and don't have your own.

Service: Excellent. Even though VMI had a football game going and the place was crowded the service was both attentive and thoughtful; no pressure.

Selection: Superb! The owner obviously "gets it." Superior roster of microcraft brews, Belgians, UK, and German beers/ales. His wine selection is off the chart with all sorts of little treasures from California, Oregon, Spain, and Down Under; good Port selection. He also carries some gourmet foods, Wine Spectator, and some nice cigars.

Value: Prices are fine but what he has on his shelves is stunning so that alone makes it a strong value. Wow! :)
