Not much to add from whatís below: yes, the service is good and the selection is excellent. Yes, it is also on the expensive side. They do carry some food items, mainly cheeses and condiments. Also, there is a walk-in freezer that is self serve, which is pretty cool. If you love beer and are looking for hard to find items, and donít mind paying pretty high prices for that rare bottle youíve been looking for, itís not a bad place.

Knowledgeable, helpful staff. Pretty decent selection, but the prices were outrageous. Made a special trip up there, but wouldnít make another trip out. Might be ok if you lived near by, but there are other better, less expensive stores around.

Olney Beer and Fine Wine is a great beer store. They have an awesome selection of import singles to choose from along with domestic 6-packs. I visit often for beer and wine tastings and am always impressed by the knowledgeable staff.

Excellent selection, but pricing is a couple of steps too high. Good service.

Stopped here after dinner at the Olney Ale House. Decent selection that I would say is very comparable to that of the Whole Foods in Vienna. Solid choice of foreigns (at high prices) and an array of local sixers. I noticed some cases that were very out of season - Dogfish Head Punkin Ale still selling at the end of April!

just a nice small shop. definately best beer selection iíve found in montgomery co. expensive as hell. the pick-a-six is a good offering. got weyerbacher, ommegang, stoudts, troegs, allagash, & mendocino for my six pack. that cost me $30. yes, $30. reccomended only for selection, if youíre looking for some pretty rare stuff, this is the place. theyíll order stuff for you too. but if youíre low on cash, skip it.

Very nice and cozy wine and beer shop. I would say about half the store is beer (at least 500 bottles) , all neatly organized. Good selection of regional micros, Belgians, and European beers. I would say this has a better selection that Astor liquors and could give Chevy Chase a run for the money. You can mix six packs and get a 33% discount. So whatís the problem? GD Hercules (10.99 per 22oz), Rogue Chocolate Stout (12.99 per 22oz), Green Flash IPA ($16 per six), Flying Dog Weizenbock corked 750 ($26). Prices are insanely high. So high that all I walked out of there with was a 16 oz Diet Pepsi, and that was $2! I hear the Montgomery County has some higher taxes, but I find it hard to believe that it justifies this kind of mark up. These prices are almost what you would pay at a bar! What a waste of an otherwise very good bottle shop.

This place was pretty impressive. Nice selection, Picked up some De Dolle Stille Nacht, Flying Dog Wild Dog Weizenbock, Avery Reverand & Salvation, Weyerbacher, & there was plenty more good stuff to choose from: Rogue, DFH, Clipper City, Lots of Imports. Good selection of wines and cheeses as well. Was there on a Saturday afternoon & they had Beer, Wine & Cheese samples. Good service, helpful but not intrusive, let you look around & pick stuff out, offered assistance when asked or it seemed needed ("Iíve got more of that Stille Natch in the back if you need more"). Prices seemed a little high, probably because of the area, but you got quality for your dollar. Had a little cafe for deli stuff & cheeses but I did not eat-other than some cheese samples, so I didnít rate for food.
