Like everyone says "its small" but when you go inside it is another story. Been going here for years and always get excellent service and learn something new about the beer or wine scene. they are very friendly, knowledgeable and have a wide selection. Definitely a gem of a place in southeast VA.

No kidding that this place is tiny. Looks like somebodys house except for the open sign in the window. The place is tiny, but the beer room has high density. You wonít find any whales here, but the owner clearly has good taste. Picked up some Maine beer co when i was there. Not sure it deserves a 99, but they get an "a" for effort.

This is a small pillbox house stuffed to the rafters with wine and beer. Staff is very passionate, and when I told them it was my first visit, they looked at each other and said "He needs the beer tour." Great selection, but only within Virginiaís archaic distributor laws. Worth going out of your way to try.

Donít blink or youíll miss the place. Very small inside but they pack a ton of beer in there for such a small place. One of the better places around to get beer. If it wasnít so far away from me I might visit more. Owner was very friendly and helpful.

Clearly one of the best places to find craft beers in the Hampton Roads area. Unfortunately it is such a long drive from Norfolk/Va Beach. Join the mailing list. Iíve made the 45 minute drive several times because of rare beers that were featured on their newsletter.

I came to Smithfield last weekend for a wedding and I did my research on this place because it had the only good selelction of beer in the general area. I heard it was small, but I had no idea how small. When I pulled up to the place it looked like a regular house with a garden out back and I thought "how is this place gonna house all that good beer?" I walked in and went into the beer room and was blown away. The staff was incredibly smart and helpful. I would definilty recommend this store to anyone in the area. Cheerz

The first time I went to this store I passed by it. From the outside you can hardly believe itís a top rated beer store because it is so small. But inside I was amazed by the selection. Typically I am able to find 1 or 2 beers here that have long since left the area. Overall a really good beer store.

Itís a very small location. Iím not familiar with the area, so I passed by it twice and had to ask for directions. Inside is another story. The selection was very good, and everything is available in singles. I got a fantastic mead (Iqhilika)there from South Africa. The prices are very competitive. The staff is very friendly, knowledgeable, and passionate about wine and beer. I definitely plan to return.

This place should make itself more obvious. Definitely the hidden gem of this small town. Looks like a house full of beer, wine, chocolate and other such aids of seduction. Beer selection is very nice, having many rare items. Owners are knowledgeable about everything they have. Iíll have to swing by here again if I get a chance.

Like this one better then Governers Point. More beer selection. One whole shelf rack dedicated to IPAís...my favorite. Plus they carry ice cold Legends.
