This is a nice, locally owned place inconspicuously located in a Virginia strip mall. The place is pretty packed on this inside, due to the awkward shape of the shop and small interior space. The guy at the counter, I assume it is Norm, is a nice guy and very willing to help. He is quite chatty. The beer selection is not outstanding, but you can probably find a thing or two that strikes your fancy, if you are someone like me who is always looking for a new thing. The prices are fine, but maybe a tad on the expensive side. I would like this place more if you were allowed to break up six-packs, but instead there are only a limited number of bottles that you are allowed to use for mixing and matching. A lot of the six-packs were stuff I would have gladly bought if I could have just got one bottle. They also have wine for reasonable prices, cigars, and Nutterz (potato chip covered peanuts, known as Twinuts Maxicrac in France and Tijger Nootijes in the Netherlands... this is the first time I have seen this snack in the US), which should be sufficient reason for you to go here.

Ambiance: Strip mall. Parking is copious. Store occupies an inner corner, so the facing looks small. But you step inside and itís like the Tardis--itís way bigger than youíd expect. Itís nice inside. Cozy but not too cluttered. Service: Good. Both Norm himself and the other associate were nice enough, and Norm was kind enough to check his stock to see if they had a couple of items for me. But they werenít patronizingly nice, or following me throughout the store to see if I wanted or needed help. And thatís just fine. Selection: Excellent. About 60 percent of the store is beer. Lots of all my favorites, including ones I canít get in Maryland (Bells, Founders, etc). There were indications that they get some nice rarities too, although I didnít see any, just empty spots and shelf-tags where they had been. A few racks of bombers too. Where the store is a tad lacking is in the singles department. There are only a couple small racks of singles, which seem to be limited to overstocked or old items. That said, you get a discount when you make your own sixpack, and Norm did say if there was a sixpack I wanted to pull a single out of I could let him know and heíd see if we could work something out. Cool. Food: N/A. Value: Average to good. Some stuff was pretty pricey, but there were a few good deals too. Liked the discount on the build-a-six. Overall: I used to only hit the Total Wines & Mores in this area when in Virginia, but Iíve just added a new favorite stop!

Place is in a strip mall, so plenty of free parking. Fairy small selection of pretty high quality bottles and I found no rarities, bought one bottle. Prices seem pretty reasonable. Norm is very helpful. Worth a stop if in the area.

Nice little shop in Vienna with a good craft beer selection of domestics and imports. Nice amount of 4 and 6 packs along with bomber bottles and a selection of singles. Discounts including 6 bottles of singles and/or bombers, any combination. Prices are some of the best for local shops in the area. They have a small section of snack foods (peanuts, chips, etc) and dips/salsas/hot sauces. Staff is pretty helpful whenever you have questions. They post most if not all of their new arrivals to Facebook and Twitter which is nice to know when things come in. The more limited releases tend to get snatched up pretty fast despite the bottle limit if youíre not quick enough to get there.

Tucked away next to Fresh Market about four blocks from Vienna Whole Foods so nice to do these back to back. Solid craft beer focused bottle shop like a mini Perfect Pour. Lots of singles, lots of beers you will not find regularly, lets you do mixed six packs it looks like with ~$2 per 12oz for your normal stuff. Knowledgeable, beer geek staff. Prices are higher, not as outrageous as Perfect Pour. But a lot of stuff was a good +$2-3 more than the same stuff at Vienna WF, *if* Whole Foods had it in stock. Will be back to find some more interesting single bottles. One big qualm that I cannot nick the score for here like Perfect Pour is that AT&T gets no service in here so tough luck if you are trying to look up which beers you havenít had. Ugghhhhh.

Great store not too far off the beltway. Great selection of regional, US and foreign beers. A bit small - ample parking. Definitely worth a stop.

The killer app here is the 10% discount they offer when you make your own sixer. The downside to that is they donít exactly have the biggest sixer selection. They have a few things here I havenít seen yet in other shops but I didnít see a ton here that wasnít available in other stores. The store is decorated like a fraternity party basement which seems to be the clientele theyíre going after. The service on wine seemed more alert than it was for beer. Itís a solid store but not worth me schlepping all the way out to Vienna.

Great, great place. I wish it wasnít 15 miles away. The selection is great here, the service helpful and informative. If you want something unique in DC metro area, odds are this is the place most likely to have it. A number of bottles are also significantly cheaper than other shops in the area.
