This place is an oasis in the beer desert of Chester. The 16 taps are all craft. I believe last count was something like 400’ish bottles. Food consists of a handful of sandwiches, but the menu was recently revamped to include a good number of quality cheeses and meats - perfect for pairing. Finally (and most importantly), the owners genuinely care about what they do. I love the personal relationships James and Aimee have established with many of their loyal regulars. Chester is lucky to have this place so close.

This is a great little spot. You can clearly see that a lot planning went into this place. Very friendly staff and a nicely curated selection of taps. A flight of 4 decent sized samplers will run you $10. Growler fills are VERY expensive, except if you go on Wednesdays, when they are half-priced. But honestly, for being located in what has historically been a beer desert, they are providing a much needed service to those residents who don’t wanna drive an hour to the nearest Whole Foods. And for the uber-beer geeks, they even print out RateBeer score sheets for you to take notes! Never seen a place do that before. Definitely would be my go-to spot if I was a local.

Located in a strip mall off Rt. 10 in Chester. The ambiance is a little dull, but you’re probably going because of the beer. 16 rotating tabs with half being VA breweries. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. They have a food menu as well, but I didn’t eat there. Offer flights of 4 for $10. In addition to the taps, there are about 30-40 bottles. Good to see this new place and wish you all much success. 4/11/2014: Update... some of the tables have been removed to make room for shelving. Currently around 250 different bottles to go.
