The best place to buy beer I've found in the Baltimore area. The owner claims that he stocks every beer available in Maryland, and it seems to be true. Excellent selection of local micros, most notably the full DFH line including 120, Punkin, and some of the weird ones, a huge selection of Eastern European beers, and a decent (not great) selection of Belgians. The staff is friendly, if not very knowledgeable, although the owner has a nice beer segment on WYPR where he often talks about seasonal beers. Wells also stocks a number of gift sets including Chimay, Samuel Smith, and others, if you're looking for a good gift for a fellow BA.

EDIT (5/20/2009): I just want to add that since I used to come here regularly 4 years ago, the prices have continually gone up at Well's. Selection is always great, but I would now suggest Beltway Liquors by the Loch Raven/Joppa intersection as a reasonably priced alternative. Wells has the best selection for hard to find imports, but you can usually find cheaper microbrews elsewhere.

Original review (9/16/2003):

I come here pretty regularly during the school year as it's right down the street from me. So far this is in general the best by way of selection and value that I've found in Maryland. I've gotten rarities such as Westvleteran 12, 8 and Rochefort 10, 8, 6 here among other things. A great selection of domestic and imported beers, tons of wine too. I've found that if you talk to one of the managers they are very helpful and full of information. I get asked if I need help often when I go in if there's somebody around (ie you may have trouble when it's busy). There are also specials on occasion, when they're trying to get rid of beer that's about to get old. Right now it's $3 for a six, $6 for a 12 of Pete's for example. If you're looking for something and want to see if they have it in stock message me and I'll look the next time I'm in there...it'll be an excuse to go buy something haha...
