Wow, what can i say about this place. Made a point of visiting while at my sister-in-laws for thanksgiving. I had read the reviews but didn't want to get my hopes up. The previous reviews are right on.

The guy working the counter was very helpful and led me right to the beers i couldn't find quickly. I had a hard time staying in my budget because there were so many i wanted to try. The ones that I settled on are as follows:

St. Bernadus 12, Rochefort 10, Rochefort 8, Stone Ruination IPA, Unibroue La Fin Du Monde, Russian River Supplication and Temptation, North Coast Old Raputin, Dogfish Worldwide Stout and 120 IPA, Three Floyds Pride & Joy, Sam Adams Imperial Pilsner, Weyerbacher Decadance.

I got a total of 27 beers for $110, not bad for the quality. I also found an interesting Guinness Infused Chedder Cheese in the deli case in the back. Would have loved to take some time and browse the even larger wine selection.

I will make a point of stopping here on all my trips to Virginia.

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...
