I think it was a SundayÖin February. The weather was nice. We were at a beer garden in North Arlington, a well-to-do area. It was gorgeous out. The young first time parents were out in droves getting lit. Their kids were running around driving their soft skulls into the corners of the few picnic tables scattered throughout the fenced in area. Right outside the fence is where the families would leave the dogs, every once in a while they would let out a squeal or a howl, letting everyone know they were there. Most of the beers were of the high alcohol variety, served in plastic cups in either 10oz or 8oz increments. Be prepared to spend a dollar per ounce. The staff were burnt out junkies who still had the wherewithal to card anyone under the age of 50. Attached is a market where they seemingly have no idea what normal prices are anywhere else in the country. Either way this is a nice little gem to come to if you already got a buzz and you want to sip on a pint outdoors without getting your head caved in by an overzealous police officer. Overall a nice place, I just wish the parents of all those kids knew places like Chuck E Cheese and Dave and Busters exist.

A grocery store with a beer garden in the middle of a nice neighborhood. The beer wraps around the entire outside of the store. Lots of beer here but holy cow this is expensive. Probably $2 more for a bottle here than other place Iíve seen, although everything in this area is expensive. Still this is an impressive selection. A mix a six will cost you $20+ but you will find a decent selection of beers new to you

A dozen changing beers on draft -- all interesting. A thousand bottles in the store that can be served with the bar menu. Outside seating in warm weather. Nice suburban option to the DC beer destinations.

Selection: Biggest beer selection Iíve ever seen in a grocery store. Great selection of sixers and singles. Some stuff here Iíve not seen elsewhere in MD/DC/NoVA, including Maine Beer Co. Service: No real beer-related service to speak of because--hey--itís a grocery store. Value: Prices are definitely on the higher end, especially for rarities. $8.99 per for a single 11.2 oz bottle of Mikkeller Milk Stout, holy crap. Notes: Not in my neck of the woods, but when Iím in the area I always stop by to see if thereís something Iíve been hunting for. Updated an old rating to reflect better selection. I noticed they also have a new beer garden, but I havenít seen it in action.

At first I thought that this was the worst stocked grocery store I had ever seen. Then I realized their refrigeration system was out because of Hurrican Sandy. The beer selection, though, was amazing, and included two from Maine Beerand three from Clown Shoes, for instance. Very high prices, friendly staff. Attached cafe, which I did not try, was packed and the food looked good.

Great selection and decent staff. However, the inflated prices here make impossible to justify coming here. Beers are between $1-$4 above local going rate.

All around, this place seems like it should be really great. They have plenty of high-quality beer as well as a purportedly-large keg selection. However, the few times Iíve been have been quite a bit of a disappointment, and Iíve had other service issues as well. On more than one occasion in the past Iíve tried to order a keg and been told that it would be in after a certain number of days. Without fail each time, the keg never ended up coming in.
After discussing the same keg with another local retailer, I discovered that this brewery does not deliver kegs to the area for retail sales. No big deal, but this is a big brewery and something a credible beer retailer should know about.
Other than the problems with information, I will say that the individuals I spoke with on each occasion were quite friendly.
The selection here is pretty good, but not mind-blowing. I saw the reviews and thought I would have to check out the selection. While itís certainly above average for the area, I donít see it being any better than Rickís or most of the Whole Foods locations.
The pricing seemed on par with the rest of the area.

Westover offers the best of West Arlington. Since the addition of the beerhaus (7/28/11), they have taken it to the next level. One of the best beer selections in the area to buy in the market, and an excellent bar, deli, and outdoor beer garden to enjoy as well. Sandwiches and 10 taps to chose from inside at the beerhaus and I canít wait until they get their permits in order to have music gigs again outside at the garden. If you are looking for a great beer selection, grocery shopping, and a friendly, local staff then this is the place. Great hang out, great beer!

I cannot tell if this is a beer store with groceries or a grocery store with beers. At any rate, they have a large, diverse selection of beer, many already broken out into singles. The prices seem average for the area, with no real surprises. The only service I got was at checkout, and maybe that was because this was a cold, damp Sunday afternoon. I would definitely stop by again if I were in the neighborhood.
