This Total Wine carries a terrific selection of craft beer. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable and eager to help. They really know the world of beer. If they don't carry a beer, they can order just about anything for you. Prices are really good as well. This is a great place to go when trying new beer styles and seeking information.

They have a very good selection of craft beers, including a variety of local breweries. You can build your own 6 pack and they carry a lot of seasonal beers as well. They don't replenish their shelves of singles as much as I would like so I sometimes borrow singles from hue 6 pack aisle.

I have been to several total wine locations in different states and this location had the emptiest shelves of all of them. Not sure if there was an order missed or what, but there were tons of beer shelves with the "this beer is out of stock" tag on them. The aisles were somewhat difficult to navigate on a Friday afternoon and the location of some beers were difficult to find. Obviously the selection is going to be wider than most stores, but this total wine location left much to be desired.

This is basically a Total Wine store, and with that comes the usual Total Wine selection. Here though, it's just inside Anne Arundel outside of Montgomery county thus the prices are a heck of a lot more reasonable. However, the selection here is a little bit less with a few exceptions on the shelves than other Total Wines in the DC beltway area.
It doesn't strike me as a place that is frequented often by big beer fans, so once in awhile you can find some straggling interesting bottles. However, the general selection and imports is also not as big as your typical Total Wines.
The biggest problem is the staff. While you can approach them and ask them for things, the vast majority of them know nothing about the beers or product at all, or what is coming in, or what might be coming. In fact I ran into more distributors here who were just dropping stuff off and looked more like people who ran the store, and their answers were ironically more useful then the staff. An employee couldn't even produce me a simple 6 pack holder, claiming nah we got cleared out after Super Bowl, and then just walked off. You're telling me 2 weeks later you can't even give me a simple piece of cardboard? Not even grab an emptied one of say Bud Light? Seriously you can't even think?
If you want to maybe grab some mixed 6 regular brews to try, and also just pass by to take a look it doesn't hurt. But only go to this place if you know what you want, or you just happen to be in the area. I wouldn't go out of my way to go to this place on a regular basis, only if it's close to you then dropping in once in awhile wont hurt, just dont waste your time asking questions here you'll get nowhere.

In Maryland, it does not get much better when considering the combination of selection and value than Corridor. Corridor is my go-to beer and liqueur store. Usually, I shop and place my order online for pick up the next day. When I arrive, my box of craft beer is ready, paid for and waiting for my arrival. Just walk in, show your receipt and ID and you are out the door. Gotta like that.
Though their selection is not as extensive as some others in MD, they are in the process of expanding their beer selection to meet the competition. This said, 9 times out of 10 their prices are quite a bit cheaper that others especially when you are buying bombers of higher end craft beer. Because of this price advantage, my friends and I have been abe to afford to try a greater variety of beers. Finally, the staff at Corridor is very helpful and has always been available when I have stopped to shop in-store. I you are in Laurel, or heading North on to Baltimore or South to DC on 295 stop by and judge for yourself.
