This place will always have a special place in my heart. The service here is great. The staff is usually pretty helpful for both wine and beer. They know what they have and donít have. The store is modern and well organized. It does get crowded on a Friday or Saturday evening and can be difficult to find parking. They seem to have nice turnover in their beer, which is nice to see. Selection is definitely above average. There are a good amount of six packs in the freezer and on the shelves. There is a good variety in style. They do have some 12 oz singles, but the selection is small. This isnít the place to come for a BYO 6 pack, but great to come for a more uncommon import or micro. They do a lot of tastings too. Most of them are wine, but they have some beer if you hit it right. Overall the place is really classy and feels like it belongs more in Mt. Washington or Baltimore County rather than Hampden.

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.

A great little beer store! The focus is definitely on wine, but they have a surprisingly good selection of beer with very good prices. The service is very friendly and the store has a great atmosphere. I like that the registers are set up like a supermarket so there are multiple people to check you out at any time. Sadly, you canít take singles from six-packs, but they do have a shelf that is made up of singles that are already taken from six -packs, so you have some choices. Overall a great store worth checking out.

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.

Huge selection. Great prices. If you find the beer buyer buyers they know a lot. Super clean store and setup. Lots of things you can buy as singles and a fairly big cooler. Best Iíve found outside of CA by far.

Great beer destination in Baltimore (about 10 minutes from downtown heading north). Brian the beer manager is as passionate about beer as those who are now reading this review. Certainly ask for him. Beer selection covers just about anything you could want to find in Maryland. Best news here is that singles are always available, and the overall pricing beats the pants off of many others in the Baltimore metro area. Wish another store (which I know quite well and love) would take notice. Anyway, I think a stop here should be essential...

Large selection of domestic and imported craft beer, most are available as singles. Friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable staff. i heard the one guy discussing the ester profile differences between hefe and Belgian yeast strains with a customer. Very clean and nicely organized. Also a nice selection of sake, wine, and cheeses. Also very easy to drive right past your first time there.

Wow, what a great selection of singles! Many beers and breweries Ive never seen anywhere else, including Montreals great Dieu du Ciel. Loads of imports and an awesome Belgian selection. I came a week before Christmas and their selection of seasonal beers, including Belgians, was also incredible. Selection of domestic micros was good, but less impressive. Overall, there is much more emphasis on singles than six packs. Prices are comparable or slightly better than other shops. Large selection of wine as well.

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.

Very nice store, lots of wine, lots of beer. There are dedicated sections to English, German, American, and Belgians. Plus a TON of cold 6ís. Found some quite unique american brews, like Dogfish Head 120 min and Oak Aged Yeti Imperial Stout. Prices were low for my experience, $8.99 for Victory Storm King? Maybe its just cause Iím from Michigan... Store also had some upscale food items, olive oil, etc. A must visit for Baltimore.
