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

Very crowded wine store with a corner for beer. Not very well organized, though if you can find them, they do have some stuff I havenít seen elsewhere. Stock rotation isnít that great because some bottles are dusty and they still have Winter seasonals at the end of May! There was also a musty smell to the store that was offputting. They have some cheese and candy from around the world which is cool, though Iíd check the sale by dates before buying. Location is in the middle of a neighborhood, hard for out of towners to find without a GPS.

As you can deduce from the title wine is the main thing here and takes up the majority of the floor space. They have 12-14 coolers full of six packs and an aisle of local, national, and international craft. I didnít get the musty smell that Magsinva got but I did notice a few of the bottles were past their sell-by date which often happens at mom and pop shops like this. I did like the food truck sitting in the parking lot. Thatís a neat touch. But the biggest concern I have is the pricing. Though they had. A few bottles I hadnít seen before the prices were high even compared to DC. Itís a very good bottle shop and the staff seemed friendly but I donít think itís the best in the state.

Visited on an early Sunday afternoon. Nice selection, but nothing special compared to other shops in Virginia. Was a bit overhyped to me. Didnít really interact with any staff other than at the register. Fair prices, comparable to other similar shops. Lots of Virginia breweries represented though, one of the best VA selections Iíve seen.

Pretty impressive place. Half the storeís devoted to wine, the other half to beer. Nice selection of root beer too. The selectionís pretty well-curated. Thereís a solid representation from Belgium. Virginian breweries get a decent amount of shelf space alongside the craft big boys. Prices were average, service was non-existent. Good spot.

There is no chance this place has 900 different beers. I would guess around three hundred different beers. Different selections than other bottle shops I visited in town, but not that many beers. Even the selections they had, many were not out as singles. Some nice selections, but nothing close to being rare. Prices seemed going rate. Service was pretty good. Hoped for a better selection, especially based on the rating.

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.

Beer seems to not be the focus here. A couple hundred varieties, most only available by the case/six pack. Service seemed indifferent, and the singles selection was a strange variety of expired oddities and a few local beers. I didnít visit any other local bottle shops, but this canít be the best in town, right?

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.
