1.83/5  rDev 0%
vibe: 3 | quality: 1.5 | service: 1 | selection: 2.5

I went there with my family and the person behind the counter (who I believe was the owner) was incredibly rude. My sister realized she had forgotten her ID and instead of nicely telling us that we couldn't buy the beer (which we would have completely understood!) she grabbed the beer from us and hid it behind the counter and coldly told us that we "couldn't have it". She embarrassed/offended not only me but my mother and the rest of my family. She was talking down to us and being very cold and unnecessarily rude.

I would not recommend. Apart from the terrible and rude service the beer is way WAY overpriced. I would just avoid this place all together and go elsewhere. They have a small selection and you will end up paying a significantly higher price for the same beer you can get elsewhere.

I went in on 8/18/12. The guy behind the counter seemed very knowledgeable, just not about the things I wanted. I was looking for Hardywood; they didn't carry it. So I picked up 3 Belgian ales upon the guy's recommendation. I have yet to try them as they were not cold on the shelves. Overall, great place, just a VERY limited selection. Don't go there expecting to find something specific, go there looking to try something new. I would also give them thumbs up on the parking availability located right outside the store. Very rare in downtown Richmond.
