Total wine was the closest beer store to were I was staying. Once you walk past the 10 rows of wine you get to all the beer and there is a ton of beer. 1 wall just for micro/craft, 1 for singles, and 2 for BMC like stuff. The only place I could find Third Coast Old ale and Southern Tier Unearthly and was pretty cheap for what I saw in most of the area. Yet another stop when I come back into town.
I essentially got no service and only saw a hand full of employees even walking around. Check out was pretty easy and painless. Overall just like most large chain stores.

This is my local craft brew shop, and imports, and...well, anything beer. The selection is phenomenal, I'm going to make a wild guess and say 750+ regularly stocked, with seasonal and special issues rotating in continually. The management and employees are helpful, and ALWAYS friendly, though knowledge is hit or miss (more hit, though). At 2 miles from my house, this is worth the drive past the places that are much closer with a fraction of the selection that appears programmed by a distributor. Clearly TW chooses their stock on the basis of a beer knowledge. The atmosphere of the place is all warehouse...but if you a re in TW, you aren't there for the ambience.
Note on food, occasionally they do cheese and meat samples, never had any, but the stuff they do stock is nice comfort items to go with wine and craft beer. Small selection on these items, but that's not really their business, either, so they get a 5 rating on the beer selection.

This is the place in my neighborhood when I go to get beers (and wine too!!). Their beer selection is big, nice and they get in some rare beers every once in a while (KBS, 120 min IPA, etc.). They do a first come first served basis on their rare beers and reserve them to some super limited quantities. The overall beer selection is fantastic (hence the 5 rating). The store has dedicated two whole isles and most of the front displays in the store to beer.
If you like wine, the selection is HUGE! They mostly stock the newer stuff, but some older vintages can be found.
The store has wine tastings and some beer events on the weekends that are worth checking out.
My kind of neighborhood store!

My in laws live in Alexandria, VA and I visited them this past weekend with hopes of finding some brews there that I could not find back home at my local Total Wine. First off, this store is in the worst designed shopping center in VA and is crazy just to get in and out. The store is quite large and much bigger than the two Total Wines by me in Hampton Roads. I was not too impressed with the selection as I was only able to find 1 beer that I couldn't find back home. I did notice too that they had limitations on certain brews that they did not have limitations on near me which I found interesting. Overall, I would go back, but I'm interested in finding another craft beer store next time I'm near my in laws!
