Has a giant walk in fridge, but there was room temperature shelving immediately outside, reserved for craft. fridge was predominantly macro, but had most of the warm offerings. said offerings were decent. some nice bombers. good variety of local virginia brews. offerings from MD: flying dog, loose cannon. lots of new belgium. otherwise not much else. compacted with no opportunity for a mixed six, I was disappointed. got some bombers. no service but itís a grocery store anyways. though when i asked about mixed 6s at the register they rolled their eyes. that should explain the service rating.

This was the only grocery store in the burg that had a decent selection of craft beer. At the time I was in college, I was just jealous of the selection at big beer stores in Richmond, but after visiting several other stores in my beer hunt, I decided to stop in to revisit this place over thanksgiving break. Nice clean midscale grocery store feel with a very large wine selection and a respectable beer cave. They carry all the Alewerks regulars and brewmasters reserves, rare legend seasonal bombers, belgian imports, and other regional and national microbrews. Hindsight being twenty-twenty, this place wasn’t that bad; especially for a grocery store.
