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.
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.
