Never ate here but the food I saw looked good so I gave it a 3. The beer selection is pretty damn good though and the prices are fair. Service has always been great and very friendly. Can be crowded and parking is sometimes challenging.

V: Beer Run isn't particularly small, but it's crammed full of beer. As you walk in, you're in an averaged-sized bar with a cooler full of beer across from it. The rest of the place is full of single beers and six packs. There's a patio dining section as well. This place has a laid back vibe that's easy to like.

Q: The quality of the beer here is in general pretty darn good. There are a few bad brews (i.e., Modelo), but in general it's very solid.

S: The service was incredibly friendly and welcoming. I didn't ask any beer questions, but I feel certain they would be able to answer them.

S: A very good selection of local / state beers (Three Notch'd, Hardywood Park), national (The Bruery, Perennial), and international (St. Bernardus, Piraat). They had a small amount of draft beers (Ballast Point Commonwealth). A solid, well thought out selection of beers.

Small place that is rather packed, so not great if you're claustrophobic. Also, packs of beer are stacked on the floor so keep the kids close. The staff was friendly and helpful, knowledgeable about beers and similar tastes to build on. Pretty good selection and they do keep their Facebook up to date with fun, new beers. The bar has a nice, old vibe to it. Pricing is generally on the higher side but it's hard to compete with a Wegmans and the staff is more knowledgeable so worth it. The parking is tight, only a few spots in front but there is parking in the back. Not a fun task getting a full size truck in or out though.

Staff was excellent. Beer selection was outstanding. Nachos were great and burgers were ok. Medium was over done and well done was killed. Go for the beer selection and nachos

We were staying at the Trump Winery Estate ( yeah, I know that sounds pretentious) and this place is one of the closest restaurants around. We caught a quick dinner (I had the salmon and spaghetti), but they also serve breakfast & lunch. The locals clearly flock here kids and all. They have (I'd guess) 300 different beers in bottles, so we assembled a case of single of our choice -- at a 5% discount. Very fun.

I went to Beer run on a Monday at about 5pm and was not very impressed. Tiny bar which was full, and the staff was very unfriendly. Didnt see any beers that were notable. I walked through the store and not a single person acknowledged me. There were 2 others shopping for beers and nobody talked to them either. No reason to go back.

Small seating area inside with patio seating outside adjacent to tight parking lot. Very good and plentiful beef nachos at smallish bar. A dozen beers plus on tap...but go for the bottle shop. One of the largest selections of local, Virginia, regional and national handcraft plus international beers I've seen in a pub/bottle shop. Outstanding selection and reasonably priced!

Had breakfast here on a Saturday, the only day breakfast tacos are available (recommended). Families mixed with hipsters; grandparents, kids on their way to soccer, and young couples were all enjoying breakfast. The beer selection, which I examined after breakfast, appears to be the best in central Virginia (and yes, I bought several). Prices were fairly reasonable. Service was prompt and helpful. A recommended stop.

One of the best places in town if not the best. Great selection, price and service. Jay has been very helpful.

Nice selection. Domestic and local beers, but a large section dedicated to imports. Nothing will blow you away, but more than most stores.

Bar is great. Had lunch. Good sandwiches with probably a dozen taps. They seem to keep a good mix of styles.

Bar pricing was good. Store pricing was average or a touch high, but not bad compared to home.

Would be happy to have this place in my neighborhood.

Likely the coolest beer bar/ bottle shop I have seen.
Very good food, great selection of taps, and awesome bottle selection.
I wish we had this in Michigan.
