Great place. Nice selection of beer especially belgians. Huge freezer in the back with cold beer, and a couple of aisles of beer. Lots of singles (and they’ll split a box if you ask). This will become a new common spot to pick up beer.

Mainly a wine store, but this place has a decent selection. One thing I liked most about the beer selection was that they had all the beers that they stocked in the top 10 percentile on RateBeer were labeled as such. Good selection from there too, although I would have liked to see a few more singles. Staff was knowledgeable and friendly but the store isnt in the greatest part of town. Definantly worth a visit.

Nice beer/wine store in one of those funny Richmond neighborhoods that’s a checkerboard of property values. The dedicated parking was very convenient. Great selection--picked up some Allagash Odyssey, which I haven’t seen for a while. A good mix of beers. Staff is helpful without being overbearing (the guy pointed out the Kulmbacher Eisbock that I had passed up because of the ridiculous packaging), and got me a box when I started looking at the bombers. Definitely worth the visit.

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 I’ve 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.

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, Cooper’s 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.
