Large place, plenty of domestic and import micros, including a ton of regional stuff. Well organized. Occasional rarities, and a handful of aged stuff. Very friendly and helpful staff. Worth a stop.

I consider this the 2nd best store in Maryland, only behind State Line. Serious quality selection. One of the better stores in the area, considering price and selection. I have been able to get anything they have as a single bottle, and along with their comprehensive regional micro selection they have a very large Belgian and German selection, even with 2-5 year old Belgian bottles. A great store that I visit on my way out of the Baltimore/DC area. Highly recommended.

This was a nice find on our way back from hiking in Gunpowder Falls State Park. The store is in a strip center anchored by a grocery store. The place is open with shelved beers and cooler-kept beers. There is a nice selection of local and regional brews with some Belgians sprinkled in, including a fair selection of Lambics. Definitely worth a stop.

This is more like it. This is a serious liquor store especially when it comes to scotch. The wine is off to the right and the beer is in the back with the BMC way in the back. The beer seems thoughtfully put together with lots if seasonals and a fairly good pick six collection. The prices are 10-20% less then you would find at Calvert and the store is a lot cleaner and the beer isnt gathering dust.

Second visit, first time since joining ratebeer. They now share space with a deli. This is a perfect place to stop if you are heading up to PA or heading back from PA going to BWI Airport. Why? You can avoid the case laws of PA and they have a very nice selection of beer. Some domestics from Victory, DFH, Weyerbacher, Stoudtís, Jolly Pumpkin, Clipper City, Troegs, Smuttynose, etc. They also have a small but good selection of Belgians. I did not find anything too rare on this visit, but I still ended up spending $50. They have a moderate selection of singles for purchase, and they are reasonably priced compared to other shops. This is not too far off the I-83 exit for Shawan Road. Worth a visit.

This place has an excellent selection. Perhaps due to not being in Baltimore proper it has been overlooked, but is well worth the trip. Belgians (Rodenbach, De Dolle, etc). Uerige and other Germans, British beers, Maryland well covered along with Weyerbacher, DFH, 3F, Smuttynose, Troegs, Clay Pipe, etc.

Stopped in here a few time now. Tucked into a nice strip mall is this gem of a liquor store. Walking in you canít help but get a little excited. This place is HUGE. I would say it is as big as the "super" state store near my house but they donít sell beer. The service was decent. They seemed to be more interested in standing outside smoking cigs. rather than answering some of the other peoples questions. I really didnít need any help but they did and there was only one person to help them. The quality was really good. They had plenty of great beers from all over the world. From west coast gems, to the classic belgians. Their liquor selection was phenomenal and so was their beer selection. Any place that carries pappy van winkle deserves a high score in my book. I picked up a magnum of OSA for $15 and a Cantillon Kriek 100% Lambic for $17. The prices were very reasonable compared to most bottle shops in PA. I have no doubt that I will return in the future.

Wide selection of Mid-Atlantic regionals, and other quality beers. Good singles pricing. Clean store, prompt service, looked like a good wine selection too. I picked up 12 beers that Iíd not had (and thatís hard sometimes, even for a good liquor store) with easily another 20-30 beers that Iíve not had still sitting on the shelves.

Good Selection, pleanty of East Coast stuff as well as a fair selection of imports. Seemed to be able to buy anything as a single although it was not advertised as such. Service wasnít anything to speak of, spent 20 minutes in the beer section & no one approached me. Good Wine & Spirit selection as well. I would shop here if I lived in this area.

Went here on a whim with brew brother BeerGestapo after work. Very pleasant surprise. Nice selection especially of vintages like JW Lees and Thomas Hardy, with some excellent prices. Friendly helpful staff. Nice selection of Belgians as well.
