Large selection, mostly bombers and 750s, plus four packs and six packs. Only a small number of small singles, avialable as a "build your own six pack" for $10.99.

Well presented selection of small single bottles and six-pack collections of imported and domestc craft beers. Some selections are spotty (e.g., Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout - "we used to have that one", Chimay blue-top but not red, Fullerís London Pride but not ESB, etc.) Good location for West End, and ample free parking.

I would highly recommend this place. Went with some friends while on a weekend trip to Busch Gardens (we needed some good beer after being force-fed the Anheuser-Busch swill all weekend). The selection was very good especially for the size of the store. The service was top notch. They allow you to build your own six packs. I canít remember the prices exactly but they were very reasonable. Much more personal experience versus shopping at a large store like Total Wine (which I really like but itís not the same). If youíre in the Richmond area you should definitely check this place out.

Stopped in here recently while visiting Richmond. Very good beer selection though not quite as good as Once Upon A Vine. The prices were generally cheaper, however. A very good beer store.

BIG beer selection here, with a smallish singles selection (build your own 6-pack for 10.99). Nice selection in terms of quality and variety. Staff not helpful but still friendly. Ambience is strip mall but still halfway decent inside for the setting. I could see parking being an issue, but it wasnít bad while I was there. Prices are decent.

Top shelf! I just moved to Richmond and happy to finally find a real brew shop. Great selection and better yet...excellent service. Friendly, knowledgeable staff (Learn something new everytime). Def. reccommend checking out the Friday evening tastings to sample diff. beer/wine. Always a great experience!!!!

Great selection overall especially if you are looking for American Microbrews (and a wide selection of belgians). They feature a wine and beer tasting session every Friday afternoon which is a great way to try new beers. The staff is certainly knowledgable and wonít steer you wrong. And its a great place to go to refill the kegorater...as long as they distribute to the area...

This store now has a good ímix your own 6-packí of singles available in the area. At least a variety of 80+ microís to choose from. I believe for about $12.
I just had to rerate this place after going back. The selection is still good for the richmond market i suppose. But the customer service and beer knowledge has vastly improved. Canít say much for the other employees, but the scrawny guy definitely has a passion for beer. And has quite a bit of knowledge to back it up. He also totally hooked me up today when I came by. Not only did he break up two sixers of good, moderately expensive beer, and sell me a mix pack below the 6-pack price, he threw in a bottle of hopslam from the back room! I will certainly be shopping here again.
