Couldnít be happier with this place. Iíve been through Richmond twice and both times Iíve picked up several cases from them. First time in the owner walked me around the store answering all my questions and let me try a beer I was interested in. Selection is outstanding, prices are fair, it is the first place you should stop if you are visiting the area.

These guys are my favorites. I have been going to see Bob & Rob for years, and you cannot go wrong! They are very knowledgeable regarding their stock and about beer in general, and are always willing to go above and beyond to get me what I want. Do yourself a favor and go see Bob. Tell him Mike from Wilmington sent you. Cheers.

Stopped by while in town for the Richmond race. My only complaint was that I couldnít fit more beer in my suitcase. This is one of the best selections that I have ever seen. I e-mailed the store, and Emily put a 120 minute and a RR Tempation behind the counter waiting for me. Great Service. Bear Republic, Allagash, plenty of Unibroue, Dogfish Head, Russian River to name a few, but too many to list. A great beer store.

With a few exceptions if you can find it in Virginia you should be able to find it here. The staff is friendly and helpful but not annoying.

Although it caters to the wine crowd, this new bottle shop in an old North Richmond neighborhood has a superb beer selection. My original review of this place complained about a lack of singles, but they have addressed this in a big, big way, now sporting the largest selection in the Richmond area. Also have a complete section of Belgian beers that are found resting on their sides, keeping the corks moist and in perfect condition. Big cooler section as well. Some hard to find stuff too, including Foret, Cooperís Vintage, Stone Imperial Stout, rare West Coast beers, etc. Friendly owner puts this place amongst the best to visit in the Richmond area. Highly recommended. Giving Carytown a run for their money.

In town to look at VCU with my wife and daughter (potential college) and scheduled a planned visit to the store. With Wellís Discount Liquors and The Perfect Pour around Baltimore as two of our regular haunts, our standards are somewhat high (as fellow Marylanders will appreciate). Once Upon a Vine did not disappoint. They stock Founders and Bells (both of which have yet to make it to Maryland, our home state), not to mention Firestoneís Burton-Cask fermented ales (which we purchased at the suggestion of the guy at the register; great guy to chat beer with too, and he gave us spot-on advice on the Firestone IPA and Double IPA; thank you, dude, if you read this!). I donít know whether our daughter will choose VCU, but if Iím ever in Richmond again, Iíll make time to visit. Easy access off of 95, nice neighborhood; well thought-out selection of beers (lots of wine too, but Iím not a wine-drinker). Knowledgeable and friendly help. And we saved about 10% by not paying Marylandís needlessly high alcohol taxes. Excellent shop!

Worth the 3 hour trip I took to get there. Very impressive lineup of top notch and hard to find beers. Stock appears stored well and the beer guy was very friendly and very knowledgable. Easy to get to from the highway as well.

In a sort of out of the way area of town, but worth it. Great beer selection, though it is a little pricy. Lots of foreign beers and the local and US stuff is well represented also. Cute dog running around. Helpful employees, though I hear the owner can be a bit rude. Nice glassware selection. Open parking lot in front of the store with lots of neighborhood folk around... I really like the vibe here.

Not much in the way of ambiance but the selection easily makes up for it. Great beer store. Easily worthwhile.
