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.

This is an excellent store. The only reason it does not get a higher rating is because it is wine-centric (which I don't personally think is a flaw) and the selection is kind of confusing to peruse. Less beer than other stores I visited, but much higher quality to quantity ratio. They sell singles, and lots of them. They have limited releases and small, lesser known brands along with all the obligatory commercial successes. They have a friendly staff who knows the beer. This was one of the quickest and easiest purchase experiences I've had at a beer store while traveling, and not because I was disappointed. I purchased about a case of beer and every one was a winner, something not widely available, or something interesting. Nice job, guys.

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.
