3.8/5 rDev -5.7%
A good beer selection in a somewhat bland box-store environment. There is a wide selection, including good regional standouts, like Dominion and Dogfish Head, and the usual suspects from farther away brands (think Stone and Rogue in great profusion). For a newer beer drinker, this would seem like a dream beer stock, but scratch a little deeper and it begins to feel more of the same-old, same-old. Missing are some of the really great West Coast brewers that are easily available in Virginia - no Green Flash? - and they seem to be afraid to tackle some of the more interesting regional beers that are available at more progressive stores in the area (Why so little from North Carolina? How about some of the edgier Pennsylvania offerings like Weyerbacher. No Blue Mountain?). While this is a good beer selection, it is hard to escape the impression that this is an inventory designed for safety.

When I'm out in the area, I make it a point to head to this Total Wine. Just like others in the general NoVa area, the focus is on wine, but the beer aisle(s) are very good. Plenty of sixers oppose gobs of singles, representing a very good portion of states and western Europe. Frankly, the service at this particular location is a tad bit lower than at others, but, if you're really in need, they'll help you out. Also like other locations, you probably won't be finding too many rare/limited beers here, but there's always a lot of tasty offerings. And, as per usual, the prices are more than reasonable. If you're in need of a beer store in the Chantilly vicinity, give this place a shot.

selection is awesome - an absolute crapload of singles that includes pretty much every beer in the store, lots of local and regional stuff as well as a quality selection of national and international micros, surprised to find bombers of the St. George RIS and Williamsburg AleWerks Coffee Stout here, the best TW selection I've found, hundreds if not pushing one-thousand choices
service is typical of the chain - that is to say, nonexistent unless you go looking for it, and even then still questionable as to whether you'll find good advice, obviously a wine-centric store
quality also typical of the chain, the first two bottles selected at random were out of date, that's the price you pay for a selection like this when the rotation can't keep up with supply, the beer section was also quite warm

I've been here twice now. Overall, a very impressive store. Obviously, their main draw is the selection of wine. However, I'd have to say to this is probably tied with the best selection of beer in the Northern VA in area with Westover Market.
They have one aisle with both sides filled with six packs and bombers and singles from Rogue, Stone, Speakeasy, Boulder, Terrapin, Bear Republic, Oskar Blues, and the list goes on and on. This is a great place to make your own six pack also with the wide variety of singles.
Elsewise in the store is a large selection of party supplies, some snacks, and of course wine. Overall, a very impressive store.
