Will definitely go back. Good selection. Prices are average to a little high. Staff was friendly but I didnít actually need help from them on this trip, so, Iím not sure about knowledge. One patron was a little put off that sheíd been told theyíd have something in that day and they didnít.

Beer selection wasnít huge, but based on what I canít get in Georgia, it had all the stuff I was looking for. It even had some WWS and 120 which I couldnít believe. Other grabs like Firestone Walker Double Jack and Third Coast Old Ale made the trip well worth it. I donít think the guy at the counter knew too much about beer, but thats ok bc I knew what I was looking at. If you are an out of towner then stop in and they are gauranteed to have the goodies you want. However, I thought that the prices were generally $1-$2 more expensive for bombers that I buy in GA.

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!

The number one reason I go to this place is for the beer I can not get in my state. For example Troegs great stuff and they usually have them and Southern Tier. Great stuff and they have some good vintage stuff.

Great beer store. Huge selection of most all breweries available in Va. People are friendly and beer tastings are awesome. Only issue is the location...its rather secluded.

I stopped by here on my way through Richmond. Wasnít hard to find off of I-95. Beer selection was pretty good although probably not as good as I was expecting based on reviews and listings. But I picked up a few things I was looking for. The guy at the register was very friendly. Clean and well organized. Prices seemed about right. Didnít appear to be the nicest area but I know little about Richmond. Iíd go back if in the area.

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.
