My hometown bottle shop, grew from a very small wine shop into a great overall bottle shop.

A solid selection of Virginia beers and great selection of beers from breweries from around the world. Three rotating taps for growler fills as well. Product turns pretty well so nothing sits entirely too long.

Awesome service, everyone is polite and happy to help you and are glad you are in their store.

Ask if Rod is working, he will take care of you. Runs all things beer within the store. A great guy!

The place is wonderful. The people are highly knowledgeable and friendly. My experience was great. I recommend this place to any beer or wine enthusiast in the area or traveling through.

This is mainly a wine shop. Prices around what other smaller beer and wine shops charge. You will pay more than you would at a Total Wine or other large retailer, but you don't have to drive out of town to find a descent beer. They do have tastings on occasion, and a good selection of Virginia beers.

Update to earlier post, prices seem very reasonable, especially for the size of the store. Met the owner several times, and he is very helpful, and a pleasure to deal with. Points out things you might like to try based on your tastes, but also makes some good suggestions outside of the usual.

Now for the best part- He's filling half and full growlers. I've filled with beers like Avery 21, a very good imperial brown, and A Little something Extra. Only has three on selection at this time, but they are always quality good beers. His bottles are themselves $5 dollars, plus the price of the beer. I've seen bottles $15 to $30 each, and $5 dollars is a steal around here.

Please if you are in the area, support the locals, because I don't want to have to start driving to durham again.

Yes, it was primarily a wine shop but the selection of beers from the region is pretty good. As a Michigander passing through, it was a pleasure not to have to wade through all the great Michigan beers to find other potential delights.

The service was very helpful, even though the range may be limited by distribution options.

No comparison to some of the outlets in Raleigh/Durham or Greensboro conurbations, but for the backwaters of Virginia away from Richmond etc., this place deserves great support from locals.
