My second time thru Blacksburg yesterday, and my second stop at The Cellar. The left side of the store is a bottle shop and I've never failed to find must-have brews there. The right side of the building is a bar and restaurant. I've not had their food but the pizza and the mussels I saw yesterday looked great. There's outdoor seating as well as indoor and a second bar in the lower level.
If you're in the area, check this place out... you'll be happy you did.

They have a great selection of bottled beers and great food, especially their pizza. Their tap selection is limited but they usually have two monthly seasonal selections. They have some great deals, their hammer time is good value for pitchers of beer and they have fair prices on food and mixed drinks/cocktails. I would recommend the luck of the draw, $2 for a random selection of bottled/canned beers, they usually have two kinds per night in the upstairs and 2 in the downstairs, and they are usually good value, I've gotten everything from Famosa to Pale Moon (Blue Moon's Pale Ale), and a few seasonal beers and craft beers.

This place really should be listed as two separate spots, but since it is not I had to list each rating based on an average between the two.
The Cellar 6-Pak shop is a relatively new beer shop that The Cellar created by opening into the space directly to the left of the upstairs restaurant space. It is definitely a smaller shop that keeps most of its stock on ambient shelving. Singles of just about everything they carry above 6 or 4-packs on the shelfs below. The harder to find singles and bombers are located on the ends of each shelf row. When I was there I was pleasantly surprised to find multiple bottles of FW Wookey Jack. Also, I should note that every bottle in here (except for the DF 120min) was very reasonably priced! Left w/ a handful of VA single bottles, a couple harder to find singles, and a bomber of the above listed FW offering for about $15.
The restaurant has an upstairs and a downstairs that are distinctively different atmospheres. The upstairs is a little more "family focused" seating and dining experience while downstairs is more where the locals/students go. I think there are slightly more items available on draft downstairs (going from memory...it was closed when I was there this past weekend) than upstairs. Apparently there are a few more food items available upstairs then downstairs as well. However, if you going I highly recommend the pita pizzas. The food has always been solid and cheap. The beer draft selection is decent as it highlights a few local-ish brews and is very fairly priced, as is the bottle selection.
Certainly worth a visit if you are in downtown Blacksburg for a game or just visiting. Grab some food and take a walk through the bottle shop while you are waiting for a great food/beer time.

Hammer time is the best vaule in Blacksburg. For only seven dollars monday through friday, you can indulge in a picher of ANY of there beers on tap.
Plus the cellar is attached to to there 6-pak store which is stocked with 200 plus beers.
Why do these reviews require 500 characters.... I am currently enjoying 'Barney Flats oatmeal stout'. I wish i could tell you a bottle date of it because it seems a little old with its poor head retention..go hokies!!! go hokies!!! go hokies!!! go hokies!!!! go hokies!!!

Great selection on tap and bottles as well. Atmosphere is cool, especially downstairs. Service can be hit or miss. The manicotti is great, as are the baked subs.
Any place that has Sierra Nevada Pale Ale on draft has my heart. If you truly want the Cellar experience I would recommend sitting downstairs at the bar.
The staff is knowledgeable as well, which beats going to a chain and requesting something other than a macro brew only to get a strange look or a huh? The live music upstairs on certain nights is unique and adds well to Downtown Blacksburg.
