Nice little shop which manages to feel both a little upscale yet neighborhoody at the same time. Friendly staff. Good but small selection. Decent prices. Would definitely shop in here if I lived in Ashland.

250th place rating! For being the only beer place in Ashland, the locals could certainly do a lot worse. Located in the downtown area. I found parking to be easy, but I could imagine it could get trickier at busier times. All street parking. Good selection of American and foreign beers, including some stuff I didn’t want to purchase a 4/6 pack of in singles, so I was glad to see that. No rarities but some less common beers. They’re far enough out from Richmond to have some stuff that may have run out elsewhere, but they’re close enough to Richmond to get the good stuff (i.e. Cigar City and Hardywood Park). Prices were all right. There was one guy working there and he was friendly. Nice place.

Small but awesome selection. Some good wine and beer food pairings. Friday evening tastings are great. Overall a nice little place that is very well priced compared to places in Richmond with an awesome selection for such a small space and great service.

A nice but small selection here. The shelves on the front half of the store are dedicated to beer, although the tops of the shelves were lined with empty bottles. A reasonable selection, but nothing really special.

I stumbled onto this place purely by accident. Was quite surprised to see not only a rather wide selection of beer but also quite reasonable pricing. I’m sipping a Weyerbacher Heresy Imp Stout right now from there. Very interesting town also, especially if you’re a train buff with CSX running through the middle of town. Smuttynose IPA, DuPont Saison Vieille Provision, & Rochefort 10 (33cl for $4.75).

Thanks to Kinz for letting me know about this place. Got some great beers here. Picked up De Dolle Oerbier Reserva, Fantome Hiver and De Noel, A. Le Coq 2000, a 2000 Gouden Carolus, and several others. The owner(?) Ian offered some older vintages of beers he had in the back. Well worth the stop if traveling up and down I-95 or if you are in Richmond. Great place!

The Caboose is a small wine and beer shop across from the railroad running through Ashland. The selection, although small, is stunning. During my last visit, I found De Dolle Special Reserva 2002, Fantome Hiver & Noel, A. le Coq Imperial Stout 2000, Rogue Brutal Bitter, assorted Legend bottlings, etc. I saw a few French ciders lurking on the shelves as well. Knowledgeable and friendly staff, this place is well worth a quick stop off of 95 to see what is floating around.
