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.

I try to stop here whenever Iím in Richmond .... A nice hidden gem... great selection, a little overpriced but who cares about paying an extra buck for something that sells out before you get there, somewhere else ....... no pressure, they will answer any question you have if you ask, but they leave you alone ..... this place has a nice hometown feel and is a must visit if youíre in Richmond

This place definately has quite the selection. I too, like stegosaurus, have had to wait up to 5 minutes to get checked out before, but it is well worth the wait. But I actually LIKE the fact that the staff isnít constantly trying to íhelpí me. I enjoy it when a beer store just lets me scope out there selection in search of those not-so-common brews. I always feel better when I find a good rare beer myself than have a clerk try to shove bottles in my face just because he likes a particular style.

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.

Stopped for some take-homes after the Shockoe Craft Beer Festival and was heartily impressed. Even though my wife was hurrying me along, I walked out with a case of singles, mostly imports, but even some Rogue, Green Flash and Stone that I canít get in SE Virginia. And the proprieter gave me a 5% military discount. All the way nice.

Stopped here while in Richmond Va for two days. Not a lot of beer, but still a nice selection. I picked up a Double Bastard ale, Bells oberon, and a Girardin Black Label while i was here. I also saw a large selection of Dogfish, Stone, russian river Damnation, a slew of belgians. Not a bad place at all. They were havin some type of wine tasting when i was there, so there was nobody there to ring me up for about 5 minutes, and i was never asked if i needed help, but i would go back if i was in the area.

Richmond tour Final stop: The shop appeared to be a converted 7-11 with plenty of space, half wine, half beer. It was bit off the beaten path, at least to an out-of-towner like me. Staff was friendly and helpful. He seemed fairly knowledgeable but I didnít press him on anything. I saw quite a few rare beers. There were plenty of belgians and small single imports. I got a Sammy Smith, but Iím kicking myself for not getting the marked down Ayinger Oktoberfest, but by this stop, Iíd already spent way too much. Next time, Iíll start here first.

Really good selection, a little overpriced, but for that itís worth it. The staff are nice, but the guy who runs it is a creep. Iíve heard things that lead me to think heís a dirty old man, totally seems to believe that guys are his buyers and squeezes customers and employees alike for every penny. I do like the food products & wine selection too, just wish the ownership would change over.

Iíve now been to Once Upon a Vine 3 times. I think itís much easier to find than people suggest - just a few minutes off 95 - though certainly not in an eye-poppingly obvious location. The guy who runs the place is really great, always pleasant to chat too, and the whole staff *really* knows their beer (and wine too, for that matter). Iím always eager to check in to see whatís available there that I canít get at home, and they always have the goods - Southampton 750s, Oaked Bastard, Panil (!), and Russian River Temptation, baby. Lots of good local stuff like Legend and Dominion. Really the best place to go in the area (though I still like Carytown Beer & Wine and River City Cellars too).
