Reliable store to find cases of decent brew, and always good for a number of new beers to try. Theyíre never going to blow you away with their rarities, but they do seem to get some NW beers that never show up elsewhere in the area. Reasonable prices.

Big box store for beer and wine. Good beer selection of singles as well as 6 packs + 750 ml bottles. Singles get expensive, but the mix and match is nice. Heavier focus on US brews but also a decent selection of international. Traffic around there can be a bit of a mess on the weekend. Also has some cheeses and cigars

First time at this outlet of Total Wine. Local streets are a zoo as is the parking lot, luckily the selection is excellent so itís worth the pain and trouble. Service was minimal -- saw lots of staff in the wine area, but not anyone around the beer (I wasnít looking for help so it didnít matter). Pricing is fair, the store is a supermarket for beer and wine so isnít overly nice but is clean and fit for purpose. Recommend but have patience for traffic.

Overall, very similar to the other area Total Wine locations, but at least this one has a cheese/meat section for those last-minute tasting nibbles. The bulk section seems a little larger than the other area stores, and the staff is helpful as always.

Similar selection as with other selections. This location also has a section with cheeses and crackers.

First of all, this is a massive Total Wine. Lots and lots of wine, with a beer selection that is about on par with Chantilly. Actually, there really is very little difference (beerwise) between the two stores that I could see. Same prices, similar layout, etc.. As is the case with all Total Wine stores, there is a large singles area, which is nice to make mixed 6 packs from. Service is basically limited to when you check out, another common Total Wine occurrence, but not something that bothers me. Lacks the rarer beers that Whole Foods gets, but makes up for it in raw numbers of different beer, so worth stopping at if you are in the area.

I can see both sides of the coin on this place. For me it was a great stop because they had a nice selection of singles from various states such as Virginia, Massachusetts and Maryland. On the other hand they did not seem to carry any exceptionally rare releases but since I do not know what is typically available locally it is hard to gauge that aspect.
The wall of singles not only provided a chance to pick up beers from places like Saranac, Legacy, New England Brewing, Cape Ann and Legend but the prices are perfect. Most singles were only $1.49 with the Legend bombers only $3.99. The only thing that I have ever seen as that price recently was on a trip to Seattle where one can get Elysian relatively cheap.
In summary if you are staying in Old Town Alexandria swing by here before you check into your hotel. It should give you enough options to fill each evening if you do not want to pay the markup at places like Bilbo Baggins or the Brickskeller but without the ambience.

Another chain store disaster. They used to have the largest selection of beer in NoVa. Since they were taken over by the mega chain store, their service has gone downhill. Selection is geared towards the big brewers, local offerings have dropped off severely.
Clean, well lit, but not very well laid out.
Basic selection of swill in the cold case.

Coming here was a shock since I had read previous comments on this (however one comment seems to be about a completely different location). Selection on singles is about the same as the other Total Wines I have been to, but they had a fantastic stock of cases and a pretty decent stock of 6-packs. Compared to others its a little run down (like it hasnít been renovated for quite some time), but I can live without ambiance.

Pay no heed to the previous comments. The place must have come under new management, because the selection was outstanding when I went there. Lots of hard-to-find micros at reasonable prices and a very knowledgeable person working the floor.
