I occasionally travel to our corporate office in Richmond, so I decided it was time not only to drink good beer while there, but bring some back to the WV beer wasteland. After looking at reviews on the beer advocate website, C&K stood out.
They definitely earn the great reviews that everyone has given them.

Very nice well kept store, the two employees were very helpful and knowledgeable on the beer they sell. Very good selection of North America craft beers and some of Europe's best. Price is very reasonable and thanks for the volume discount, which was referred to as the WV discount, nice touch.

I will be back when I'm in Richmond.

While visiting Richmond, we stopped in at 11am to see what was good and local.

Very clean and organized. Lots of VA beers, of course the standard big boy craft breweries, and just a handful of distant wants. They do sell singles, but that selection was rather low. A good bit of beer was out on the floor (I understand the lack of cooler space these days), yet I did walk out with 4-5 four packs, so the selection wasn't horrible.

I stopped by Corks and Kegs on a Saturday beer visit to Richmond in June 2016. I only had enough time to visit one store, and since this one was near Mekong and The Answer, and because I saw it was highly rated here on BA, I chose to make this my one beer store stop. I was hoping to find some good local/regional beers to take back to OH with me. Ultimately, after browsing the selection, I left without buying anything. They featured a selection of local/regional cans, but there wasn't anything super fresh or exciting. Overall, the selection was average. One of the employees did a nice job summarizing the local scene for me, but even he agreed there wasn't anything compelling on the shelves for me to take home.

Admittedly, Saturday afternoon isn't always the best time to visit a beer shop, since many of the highly sought after releases typically arrive during the weekdays and don't last til the weekend. But I would have expected a store rated this highly would have had something worthwhile for me to take home. Overall, it's a nice store--clean and well organized--but I wouldn't go far out of my way to visit again; the selection just didn't merit a follow up visit for me.

My review of this place is as follows:

I stopped down here on my way to LCCB's 2nd Anniversary bottle release, and while I was picking up stuff like a sixer Anderson Valley Blood Orange Gose and the last Farm to Face bottle they had, the owner surprised me with a bottle of Velvet Merkin.

Enough said.

Stopped by while spending a night in Richmond. Pretty good amount of craft offerings ranging from German and Belgian imports to solid locals. Filled a my own growler of On the Wings of Armageddon (+) and picked up 6'ers of Lickinghole Creek and Anderson Valley Gose. Prices were average and the young lady behind the counter was courteous and helpful. They also offer a build your own 6 but didn't have that many offerings from the selection to build. A good stop if you are in Richmond.

This place can be a gold mine at times. You can find things you cannot find anywhere else. Owner is very knowledgeable. His staff can be hit or miss. Selection is tough to beat. Prices are very reasonable and often beat Total Wine. They could use a larger footprint of a store possibly but that might cause them to charge more. Excellent retail store.
