Wine is the focus here, but it’s worth checking out. The atmosphere is very nice and the store is big and spacious. There are some craft beers along the wall, with six-pack holders so you can pick out singles easily. Prices were decent.

Wine, liquor and beer store, not one that focuses on craft beer. Overall decent selection, limited singles but some good interesting choices. Large place. Does a good job for what it aspires to be.

Beer is definitely an afterthought here. Wine dominates most of the shelves here with liquor being consigned to the back and beer relegated to the coolers on the right side and a few shelves on the left. The had a few seasonals but they were near the window which is not cool. A lot of the beer looked dusty. They have a walkin cooler but they use an area in the back right section as their own personal refridgerator which is off-putting. The selection is comparable to what you’d find at a Wegman’s in northern Virginia. The prices are on the high side. Update 7-12-13 Calvert wine has moved to the next building over, has renamed themselves, and now faces Wegman’s which they may or may not have a connection with. But the primary ownership remains the same, the phone number is the same, and web searches for Calvert now refer to this store. It’s a 180 from the old Calverts mainly in that it physically looks like the beer and wine section of Wegmans leesburg down to the color scheme, the fine wine room, the similar shelving, the similar pick 6 display, the similar branding, as well as the similar POS, and the similar selection which isn’t going to compare with the interesting things you can find at Shawan Liquors down the road but its better than most grocery stores and similar sized liquor stores. And the prices are a lot better. Unfortunately they don’t accept the Wegman card.

This is located in the Hunt Valley Towne Centre, near I-83 and York Road. Beer is located in wooden shelving near the windows; most of the floorspace is dedicated to wine. Beer is also located in the coolers lining the opposite wall. Decent selection of micros and Belgians, nothing over the top, but a good variety. Chimay, Victory Wild Devil, many DFH’s, a few Rochefort’s, even some Mikkeller. Not a bad place to get lost in while you’re stuck in shopping purgatory.
