I was driving with my folks through VA, and had been reading about this place on BA, so I wanted to stop by. It was definitely worth the trip. Everything that I had ever wanted that I couldn't get in Texas, they had. My mouth dropped to the floor, and I would have skipped through the aisles if there had been enough room. For a rather small store their selection was no less than incredible. I got Stone's Smoked Porter, Ruination, RIS, Old Guardian, and Double Bastard, Rochefort 10 and Fuller's Vintage Ale. And this is perhaps one half percent of their entire selection. I had a limited amount of funds, so I had to make some sacrifices - I would've gotten all of Allagash's special brews, not mention a large portion of the great variety of Belgians. Next time I an in VA I will definitely make the trip to Richmond, just to come here. Bob, the manager, was awesome. I told him I was from Texas, and he really made me feel at home. I didn't have any questions for him (I knew what I wanted), but he seemed really knowledgable and was very quick about wanting to help out customers. Awesome place, and worth seeking out.

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...
