Glad to finally get by here, was passing through town and the wife was cool with stopping here for lunch. Cafe, beer bar, and beer store in one, nice concept. Food at lunch was sandwiches. They were solid enough, though I should point out that the bread they were served on was simple but outstanding. Nice draft selection to choose from, picked up a couple of new beers which is a bit difficult sometimes, so good draft list! And after lunch, went beer shopping in the store - very nice beer store. The best section of ciders I think Iíve ever seen assimilated in a shop before. Well worth the trip if going through the area. Draft prices very reasonable, bottle beers pretty standard.

This place has come a long way since opening. Good beer selection, weekly tastings, some glassware starting to creep in, a nice bar that features a few macros but also several nice beers. They will often get rarer things such as Starr Hill one-offs and the more rare draft offerings that come to the state. Food is tasty with a natural emphasis. This is a beer store, bar and cafe all at once. Definitely worth a stop if youíre in the area. I mean, how many beer stores do you know of that serve breakfast? There are rumors of expansion plans in the future. If theyíre not careful, they just might end up becoming one of the stateís premier beer stops. The service is friendly and helpful to strangers but if youíre fortunate enough to get to know them, the service is that much better. I know Iíve walked in and found a rare beer in my hand before I knew what happened. Locals should come here and should do so repeatedly. Visitors should come here too as its one of the premiere stops in the area. The parking sucks. Other than that, this is a top notch place.
Update: as of November 2011, they have a whole new room for beer. The new room is the foreign beer selection and the original room is the American beer selection. Itís still a work in progress, but its already looking nice and should add to the already very nice bottle selection.

Was blown away by this, totally my kind of beer store. Lots of fresh beer on the shelves for reasonable prices, a good amount of it was available cold as singles, but not all of it. Tons of local stuff I canít get here in Cincinnati, so I was very excited. If you get a case they give you a 5% discount, which is pretty awesome, so I ended up doing that. There is also a bar in the middle of the place with good stuff on tap, some rarities. Since the bar and the beer store is in the same area, you and your friends can enjoy drinks while you browse the to-go selection, which was very neat and unusual. On the opposite side of the bar, there is indoor seating area for the restaurant portion of the place, in addition to outdoor patio seating. My friends and I were very happy with the food. Bloody Maryís were expensive at $9, but freakiní great. Definitely tastes like a $9 BM. My friends went through 3. Service is pretty good, people who work there do their best to be as helpful as possible. Overall, a very satisfying place, one of the coolest beer stores Iíve ever been to. Ended up returning like 4-5 times throughout the labor day weekend. I look back on this place fondly, if I was a local Iíd be there all the time. Totally my kind of thing.

Stopped in while driving home to grab some bottles (So not rating food and service was just the cashier.) Tons of bottles though! Great selection from all around the world. Prices are kind of all around, some seemed high, some seemed low. Mix-a-six, lots of bombers, cold and ready to go...almost overwhelming. Make sure to follow the wine to find most of the Euro beers in the back room.

This is a great beer store/restaurant. The food is local-based, and outstanding. The beer selection is top-notch.

Beer Run is model for all tap rooms with a package store. They also sell wines and coffee. The selection of craft beers is excellent. the owners also have worked with local brewers to create beers. The food was good. The nachos was huge. This would be enough for two people. The package stoes has bombers and the new 750 ml bottles of specialty beers.

Arrived with some friends in Late October 2011. Third time Iíve been here. Expanded Belgian selection is fantastic. Some rare beers, also the entire clown shoes collection, a ton of Bruery, Nonge O, local stuff like Williamsburg Alewerks and Blue Mountain. The tap list is usually very good - had a Fade to Black while beer shopping. Never had the food but I hear is pretty good. Overall a fantastic place to bottle shop - plenty of already chilled high-end ales. Great looking growlers too (wide grolsch-style caps).

Beer Run is a fabulous place. Clicking through each category I didnít rate them that high, but it really is the overall where it excels.

There is a lot packed into this little shop/deli/bar in Charlottesville. The deli produced a great sandwich to accompany my beers at the bar, and I could not leave without buying some bottles to go. The beer aisles are cramped and well-stocked. There are some book cases holding singles and a cold can open fridge, a multi-door 6-pack cooler, and a bottle singles cooler. The service was a bit unresponsive, partly because it was shift change.
