This is a nice, open liquor warehouse in an interesting Baltimore neighborhood. There is a large selection of beer, wine, and spirits, including a decent cider and sake collection. Beers are available on shelves and some in coolers. There was a wide variety though not nearly as much to choose from as Stateline or Perfect Pour. The staff seemed friendly but stayed out of my hair and let me browse. Overall, prices are great for the area.

A great wine/beer/liquor/cheese shop in a quaint, casual neighborhood in Baltimore - not the biggest import selection, but one of the better selections of regionals youíll find in the area, and at reasonable prices, too (I got some gumballhead for 5.99, and I seem to remember paying nearly 8 for it elsewhere, plus some clipper city bellow decks for 5.99 a 4 pack) - the cheese selection is quite nice - the store is clean, well-lit and spacious - if there were more space dedicated to beer, it would be the perfect store, but itís not called "the beer source," so I certainly canít complain.

Visited on 6/12/2012 after a 20 minute walk from the Baltimore Museum of Art. Pleasant drinks warehouse that offered a wide range of six packs, 22 oz bottles and foreign imports. There are several shelves of 12 oz singles, which provided more than enough choice for a foreign visitor, but were looking a bit depleted. Prices were very reasonable and service friendly. Well worth a visit.

Stopped in on the way home from DC. Beautiful store, but lacking a little bit of a personal touch...workers seemed a bit disinterested and distant. Complimentary coffee and a nice selection of cheeses mostly made up for it (cheese samples would have completely negated it). Selection seemed pretty good, offering a ton of things that I didnít even see in 3 days and 5-6 DC area stores. Nice lambic/gueuze selection, lots of singles, lots of local-ish things. Overall a rather nice place.

Stopped in here earlier this week. I have always heard good things, figured it was time to finally check it out for myself.

Atmosphere was pretty good. A very nice feel to the store with all of the bottles laid out before you. People milling around in the aisles looking at bottles of wine and such. Service was good as well. I was asked multiple times if I needed help and when I did need to know a price they were quick to find out the answer.

Quality was pretty high. Lots of top notch wine, spirits and beer throughout and even some snacks to boot. They even had some rarer spirits / beers that I hadnít seen in awhile. Beer selection was pretty solid. Lots of locals mixed with the typical national offerings, and even some more obscure overseas offerings too boot. Prices were more than reasonable in my book. Overall a really solid bottle shop, I will definitely return the next time I am in the area.

A bit warehouse-ey, but thatís fine - Iím here for beer, not ambiance. They have a solid selection of beer, though it is much less than what is available at The Perfect Pour. As Willblake mentioned there is a wall of 12oz bottles you can buy singles of. I did find bottles of Stillwaterís A Saison Darkly here that I was unable to find anywhere else in town.

Among the best selections around, probably second (distant) only to State Line for stores within an hour of me. Enthusiastic and friendly staff, but theyíre not always lingering around the beer area. Nice but small selection of singles. Prices are tops, often head-scratchingly low, and generally making it worth the long drive. Great wine prices, too, for those interested, and a small but outstanding selection of cheeses.

Take a stroll in this quirky neighborhood, have lunch on the Avenue (the main road thru this section of the city), then definitely stop here to load up on one fo the best selections of craft beers and quality imports in Baltimore. Friendly staff always ready to answer a question or open a register. Great place to catch the latest releases or newest distributors. And everything is reasonably priced.

Made the trip out here after the lady at the Heavy Seas brewery told us it was the only place we could still find The Great Pumpkin on the shelves. Not only did we find plenty of them, but I was pleasantly surprised by the rest of their selection. In terms of wine... wow. I dont really drink wine, but the 5 giant aisles of wine from seemingly every country in the world tell you all you need to know. They have a nice selection of import beers. Lindemans, Rochefort, Delirium, Chimay, and plenty of others. They have a huge selection of 22 oz bottles and 4/6 packs of American micros. The only thing I found to be lacking was the selection of 12 oz singles, which comprised only one small shelf in the corner. Cant make any promises about freshness either, as it seemed a lot of stuff was quite dusty. Still, itís a big one-stop-shop for all your alcohol and accompaniments, with very friendly and helpful staff and average or better prices. Definitely will go back if I return to Baltimore.
