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.

Well worth the trip! Owner is nice and active on this website, seems to be always searching for new brews to bring in. If your ever around the Richmond area youíd be silly not to stop by.

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.

Tough place to find if youíre not familiar with the area, but completely worth the effort. Fantastic selection and very helpful staff. Canít ask for any more, except that they open another store closer to me.

Went here on Sunday June 5th, 2005. A former 7-11 store converted into a nice beer and wine shop. Ample selection of beers from Belgium and England. Found some "odd" countries not typically found around the area (at least none that Iíve seen). Plus they get stuff from Shelton Brothers which is unavailable in SE Virginia, as there is no distributor. Picked up wuite a few beers fromt hem and had a nice discussion with Bob (the owner?) about beer in the area. Colorful guy and very friendly! Worth your time. Better than Carytown, in certain respects.

Came up from Virginia Beach and was impressed with the selection of 750 Belgiums. Stocked up and canít wait to pop a few corks. Iíll be back as soon as my supply runs out.

I felt like a kid in a candy store here. Iím not used to this type of selection back in Tidewater, at least not in a store. The people who worked there are very cool. There was a dog roaming around most of the time. Luckily, I went here first on my beer store tour. I canít wait to go back again and again.

A very nice selection. The store is a little small but well organized and the staff new where everything I asked for was. They took me around the store and made suggestions. Nice selection of Bells. Founders, Southern tier and various Belgiums. When I was leaving the store the helped carry out my cases and gave me a hard time about accepting a tip. I will go back on my next southern road trip it was about a mile off 95 which is a plus.
