Back at my parents' in C-Ville so I have to check out the wares at the WW.
Now of course 80% of the store is wine, which is by no means a bad thing. Good temperature control and boxes upon boxes of wine. The right 15-20% facing the entrance from the outside is for the beer. Almost exclusively craft, and some of the best stuff going. This is where I go for my Bell's fix when in town, since Massholes don't have ready access back in Boston.
Caught the beer guy while I was there - he was more than willing to provide a few recommendations and was very helpful.
Selection is only limited by space - it's solid but not overly huge. Prices may be a little more than the average bear. Noticeable but it's not like I won't keep coming back. Great shop - I encourage those passing through to check it out.

Great place to get beer in Charlottesville, always seems to have great selection of the standard East Coast fare (Bell's, Founders, DFH, Oskar Blues, etc.) and their mailing list is fantastic for getting easy access to whales and rarer beers. They really do a great job of getting special stuff in from local breweries like 3 Brothers and Champion when they come out with something new, so it's great to see them supporting local craft. Knowledgeable staff, always ask if you need some help and more than willing to talk beer at the register.

A little tricky to get to...if you're heading north on 29, you have to bang a right at Hydraulic Rd. (and not before the light at the Kroger entrance) and then look for the sign and the driveway on the right. Very friendly, more of a wine store than a beer store as the name indicates, but good selection nonetheless. We were offered a sampling of three wines before browsing. The website says that the store is kept at 55-60 degrees to maintain freshness; I didn't have a thermometer or look at the thermostat, but it felt warmer than that to me. All the Maine Brewing Co. beers are kept in a fridge, and everything else is out on a shelf. Pretty tightly packed, so you have to do some maneuvering, especially if you're picking up more than a six-pack. Pretty solid selection of Belgians and good American craft stalwarts (Bell's, Stillwater). Some of the stock appears a bit old -- discovered a few New Belgian offerings that were about three months past their best-by date.

Great bottle shop to hit while you're headed to the airport....so I did. Inside you will see a large selection of wine and a quite a decent selection of craft beer. Immediately a young man who was quite knowledgeable about beer styles and local brews was there to help. Without a lot of room in my bags, I selected a few local IPA's to haul and try at my next city. Quite a variety of stuff from the east coast, midwest and some good names from the left coast too. Lots of bombers as well. They let me buy singles, which was awesome, highly recommend this place.

Fantastic beer selection (Belgians, various other imports, American micro-brews, etc.). The temperature is cool, which is perfect for storing beer, and which immediately tells you something about the quality of the place, and how seriously the proprietor, Matt, takes things. The entire staff is knowledgeable, though Matt, in particular, has a spectacular knowledge of most anything beer related, and is always extremely helpful. You can mix your own six-packs on most anything in the place. My favorite beer store in Charlottesville. Highly recommended.
