I was recommended this place by an employee at Total Wine. I live in Florida and was looking to get my hands on anything that we weren't able to get at home. I got there just as they were opening and even though they were busy setting up and such the owner walked me around the store and answered all the questions I had.

The selection was outstanding. They had all the staple beers that I am used to from South Florida as well as Beers from Southern Tier, Bear Republic, Bells (we get some Bells beers down here not all), New Holland, Victory and so on. They seemed to have a great deal of special releases and seasonals, I was particularly happy to get my hands on a bottle of Stone Bitter Chocolate Oatmeal Stout, which I had in Michigan a year or so ago.

The owner, Bob, and his staff were very courteous and accommodating, making many recommendations and letting me try a beer that I was interested in.

I dropped about $120 bucks and felt it was well worth it for the haul. I highly recommend the place and only wish I had a place like this in my neighborhood.

Has a Nice selection, very good service. They let you break open most of the six packs. Watch the dates a bit as I found somr dust on some shelf beer. Still a great place, about 5 minutes from highway.

Great selection. I've been twice and both times I only meant to stay 10-15 mins at tops and got lost just looking around.

Fave place to buy beer when in Richmond. Tucked away in a residential area, and the beer while occupying a smaller area than the wine is packed with goodies. I can always get my Michigan beer fix (when will they come to MD!?) and last time I also got some Hardywood Park and Cigar City. Bam! Folks are generally helpful and prices fair. The thing I always think of, though, is how someone once forgot to pull their e-brake and their car drifted across the parking lot while I was in there. Thank god my rental car was not in its path! We all had a good chuckle. Maybe you had to be there...
