I'd been hearing about this place for a while and decided to check it out a few weeks ago. I was pleasantly surprised by the selection of beers, particularly American micros. They had a lot of stuff that I hadn't been able to find elsewhere and all at reasonable prices. Their import selection could have been bigger but they seemed to have all the big hitters and a few hard to find items. I guess with a limited amount of space you can't really complain about what they manage to cram in there. The store seemed a little cluttered but then again I didn't go there for a feng shui experience. They had a huge cooler space with tons of great 6 packs and a nice selection of bombers. I was pleased to see that they had a nice selection of Anderson Valley and Rogue that I had been unable to find elsewhere at larger retailers who you think would carry such things. Another nice perk was a decent selection of glassware from various breweries which was something I'd been looking for as well. It's hard to find decent beer glasses that aren't Guinness pints or something. A bit pricey since you pay by the glass but you only need one glass at a time anyway so it's a decent place to stop if you need any particular style of glass. I think I'll be making most of my beer purchases here from now on.

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...
