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.

(Visited 07/204): The Alexandria location of Total Wine & More is in Lincolnia on Little River and Beauregard in a shopping plaza. There is a large parking lot in front.

The inside is laid out like other locations, well lit and organized by beverage. The beer aisles are toward the middle of the store. They are generally segregated by region.

There are hundreds of options available, and singles are stocked as are some seasonal and special releases. Regional breweries like Starr Hill, Hardywood and Devils Backbone along with other domestic craft brewers and imports are on the shelves.

Service is pretty typical for a big box liquor chain. I was greeted and checkout was friendly.

All in all you know what you are going to get at a place like this, for better or worse. I can usually count on finding several beers that I cannot get back home so I would hit it again on a future visit.

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.

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 hasn’t been renovated for quite some time), but I can live without ambiance.

Reliable store to find cases of decent brew, and always good for a number of new beers to try. They’re 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.

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

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.

A pretty big store with a wide variety of beers, most of which were popular yesterday (not to sound snobbish). The Special Release selection was ok. I’ll probably be going back just not jumping out of my seat at the opportunity.

Big box store with a large selection. Nothing super exciting but plenty of things worth picking up. Kind of a pain to get to. It’s fine.

Back in the day these places were called Total Beverage and they had a good to great selection of beer. Well no more. The name changed to Total Wine and so did the emphasis of the store. There are lots of beer but it is a rather uninteresting selection. The good news is that they sell tons of singles. The problem is that their quality is sometimes not so good. It is worth a stop if you are in the neighborhood but dont go out of your way for it. Of the ones in the DC area the location in Chantilly seems to have the most selection.
