Nice bottle shop - there's not a huge selection, but it's quality stuff. They have about six drafts - they were all top notch, killer stuff - big fan of the half pint pours. The sandwiches are FANTASTIC - you cant go wrong. I didn't buy any bottles, but we had Alewerks BA imperial porter on draft and a great meal. The staff was also great - very knowledgeable and helpful - no problem with providing me samples of a few other drafts. They do growlers too. Very cool shop.

I was vacationing from out of town and was looking for some beers I can't find at home. They had a nice selection and guy at the store could not have been more helpful. It was easy to tell he is really knowledgeable and into the beers he sells. If I was local this place would be a regular stop.
I'm not a wine or cheese guy, but it appeared they also had a big selection of those.
I would highly recommend stopping by when you have enough time to have a beer. They had five or six awesome beers on tap and a nice seating area outside.

Read about this on BA - and wanted to see how it was while in SE Virginia.

Atmosphere: Good lighting, and 50/50 a wine and beer store. Beer is all at the back, wine all up front. In the back the beer is showcased well in fridge cases, taps on the wall for growlers, and racks for bombers of various beers.

Quality: About 95% of the beers here are craft and micros. There are some macro lagers here, but they are in the minority. The craft that is present was higher rated national craft beers or local SE VA beers.

Service: Good service. Was greeted as I walked into the place (I was the only customer) and when I asked about a container for holding a few bottles, the person behind the counter went quickly to grab a 4-pack holder for my single bottle purchases.

Selection: See my comments on quality above, but I'll elaborate a bit more here. This place has very few single bottles available, and if you want to make your own six pack, this isn't the place...unless you want bombers or 750mL bottles, of which there are lots and lots of. So when looking at it that way - there is a great selection of US craft beer bombers here, but for 12oz singles, there is not a lot here.

Value: A bit on the pricey side.

Overall - definitely an above average store, but I've been spoiled by other places where I can build my own six packs with ease. If you want a high quality six pack or some bombers, this is the place, but if you want to sample and try out, this isn't the place.

Increasingly, I love this place. Phil is the beer guy, and when you walk in, right off the bat, he tells you what he has in that's new. He remembers you, even if you're not there every week.

The selection has become increasingly great, but best of all, just this week, they've added several taps. Now, not only can you get a wide variety of bottles, but there are a few different growler options to choose from.

A great place for beer, and certainly the best of its kind on the Peninsula. It has striven to improve its quality and selection over the last year or two.
