I was driving with my folks through VA, and had been reading about this place on BA, so I wanted to stop by. It was definitely worth the trip. Everything that I had ever wanted that I couldn't get in Texas, they had. My mouth dropped to the floor, and I would have skipped through the aisles if there had been enough room. For a rather small store their selection was no less than incredible. I got Stone's Smoked Porter, Ruination, RIS, Old Guardian, and Double Bastard, Rochefort 10 and Fuller's Vintage Ale. And this is perhaps one half percent of their entire selection. I had a limited amount of funds, so I had to make some sacrifices - I would've gotten all of Allagash's special brews, not mention a large portion of the great variety of Belgians. Next time I an in VA I will definitely make the trip to Richmond, just to come here. Bob, the manager, was awesome. I told him I was from Texas, and he really made me feel at home. I didn't have any questions for him (I knew what I wanted), but he seemed really knowledgable and was very quick about wanting to help out customers. Awesome place, and worth seeking out.
