The Chesapeake branch is one of my regular beer stores. The reason I go to the Va Beach store is because Va Beach is the first one in the chain to get new seasonal or special items. They got SN Anniversary Ale and Harvest Ale long before the Chesapeake branch got theirs. I don't know the staff at Va Beach and my only encounters are to ask for the special interest item that brought me there and checkout.

Like Chesapeake, there is a fairly good selection, prices are ok, the layout is fairly good with easy to find items.

Stopped here to check out the selection and was completely overwhelmed. We don't have places like this in NY. It was like a Costco of just wine and beer. Huge selection of beer from all over. Once I collected my breath, I realized the beers are organized by country on one side and beer style on the other side. They had a small section where whales might be (special releases?) but I didn't find any. The only whale I found was Narwhal which was hard to find when it was released in NY. And they had cases of it.

Overall seems like a decent place if you are looking for common stuff (SNPA) etc.... But they didn't have a decent selection of local VA beers. Prices were average. But much cheaper than NY.

Total wine is a great place to stop if you only have gas stations around to get beer. The wine selection is very good but I am not reviewing it for the wine. The beer selection is better then farm fresh or most other grocery stores. You can find alot of craft beer but nothing truely unique. The prices are not bad which is nice but the staff knows nothing about the beers they are selling. The only thing I have heard the staff say about the beers they are selling is that they have a new special or a new seasonal in. (thanks for reading the sign to me) All in all, not bad for a craft store but not anything super special.

Had to get the oil changed in the old van so I walked across the busy street to give this place a once over.

Typical Wine and More fare. Service was nowhere to be found. Although I rarely need help, the offer is always nice and lets me know they care about the customer.

The selection was a bit paltry, especially for a TWM. Only half an aisle of products and some other singles on the back wall. I certainly didnt see anything exotic or not avaialable at any grocer. Most of the selection here was semi macro with the regional beers and a couple of specialties.

The only saving grace was that this place is pretty close to the beach, two miles or so. It was the closest place to our hotel so it wasnt bad. I would probably come back if I didnt want to drive all the down to the Grape and Gourmet.

They have a very nice selection at good prices. If someone can help you, they will. It is just rather in a busy part of town at most hours and they put the beer in the back corner. This place, as much as others I have been too in the chain, are a good source for those popular hard-to-find beers but not for rare ones. Also, wine is right in their name for a reason.
I found staples like the Van Steeneberg sampler, cases of Sierra Nevada Celebration seasonal, nice selection of Belgians, large amount of American micros.

Decent beer shop but definitely focused on the wine part of their name more than the "and more" part. Better selection than you find at most grocers around town, and comparable prices. However, with the Grape and Gourmet being nearby, this store does not really offer anything that cannot be found elsewhere. Also, the staff is not very knowledgable about the beer section. The few times I have asked someone a question, they would usually stare at the shelf for a while and then go ask someone else. This is a decent shop with a decent selection, just not anything unique.
