Located in strip mall at the corner of Reistertown Road and McDonogh, VVWS is a smallish store that focuses primarily on hard booze and wine, but with a couple of decent size cold boxes in the back. Expect to find the usual craft beer suspects here, which means core beers and a few seasonals from DuClaw, Troegs, Victory, Heavy Seas, Stone, Sierra nevada and the like. I think they had a few imports as well (some Chimay, as I recall), but it's hard to call the selection here very impressive (it's very similar to what you'll find at DiWine, just down the street). So I wouldn't call this a destination spot, but it would be a good place to possibly grab a 6 pack of SN torpedo IPA if you happened to be in the area, and wanted some decent beer to take home with you after an afternoon of shopping. On the day I was here, there was a single employee manning the cash register. He didn't say a word until I was ready to leave, at which point in response to my one question, he indicated they'd gotten a single case of nugget nectar that a customer had grabbed soon after it came in.

Prices looked to be on par with what other stores in the area were charging for craft beer products.

Kind of hard to imagine any reason to ever come back here...
