Visited off season in early late March.

V - As the name says, its more than wine and beer. A nice open clean bright place but not a place to go talk beer.
Q- Watch out for old bottle. I was desperate and purchased a DFH Burton Baton and Palo Santo Marron each almost two years old. (My fault, I failed to checked the dates before purchase). So no idea how old some of the other more time sensitive bottles are. 2.75
Ser - Fine. Beer is expensive as all beer sold by the bottle even when buying a four or six of the same bottle. 3.5
Sel - A good selection of wine and a decent selection of beer. Definitely find some locals. A good selection of DFH. And some more regional/national distributed brands. 3.5

This is one of the places I make sure I hit every time I am in Chincoteague. The selection is not large and is contained to the back right corner of the store. What is there is a great selection of some of the best beers from local breweries. They also stock bombers and have some breweries like Terrapin that I have not been able to find anywhere else on the island. They also allow you to purchase singles. It seems like what is there was thought out as opposed to just randomly stocked. Service has always been friendly and their collection of wines and local edibles are always top notch. Not worth driving out of your way for, but a go to if you are on the island.

While on a vacation drive through Chincoteague Island, I quickly found out that a local Virginia beer is impossible to find. Stopping in several places that had nothing more than the usual macros, I was getting bummed out. While I was driving down the main drag just past the bridge onto the island, and saw Wine, Cheese, & More. I walked in and asked the question - Do you have any "More" (I had to explain this meant local beer) and the lady behind the counter laughed. She point to a refridgerator hidden in the back of the small store. Blessed relief ! The cooler was not filled with overwhelming choices, but no BMC products were in there. Several varieties of DFH, Sierra Nevada, Mobjack, Fordham, St George, and Williamsburg were available.Yuengling along with some imports like Duvel and Chimay were also available. You could also buy singles or six packs.

The lady behind the counter was pleasant, explaining the products from the local Williamsburg and Mobjack breweries. This store really focuses on wine and cheese, but the smallish micro selection (about 25 different beers) was a nice find to stock up my cooler to bring back to the hotel and bring a few home. If vacationing on Chincoteague Island, definitely hit this place if you need to fill your cooler.
