At first I thought that this was the worst stocked grocery store I had ever seen. Then I realized their refrigeration system was out because of Hurrican Sandy. The beer selection, though, was amazing, and included two from Maine Beerand three from Clown Shoes, for instance. Very high prices, friendly staff. Attached cafe, which I did not try, was packed and the food looked good.
Across the street from Lost Dog Cafe and next to the post office, the beer selection at this grocery story is pretty solid. Some of the Rogue XS line along with about a dozen of the more common Belgians, and a wide selection of regional micros, including some singles up front. Nice selection but if you’re in the area I would recommend Total Wine in McLean.
I cannot tell if this is a beer store with groceries or a grocery store with beers. At any rate, they have a large, diverse selection of beer, many already broken out into singles. The prices seem average for the area, with no real surprises. The only service I got was at checkout, and maybe that was because this was a cold, damp Sunday afternoon. I would definitely stop by again if I were in the neighborhood.
Neat to see what looks like some sort of natural beer growth all over the store. By that I mean that you can clearly tell what section used to house (and still for the most part does) the beer, but it has expanded into other areas like some sort of moss or vine. Selection is good for a grocery store, but the lack of singles aside from large format bottles makes it a bit tougher for me. If I were a local it would be a great place to grab a six though.
A dozen changing beers on draft -- all interesting. A thousand bottles in the store that can be served with the bar menu. Outside seating in warm weather. Nice suburban option to the DC beer destinations.
A grocery store with a cool outside bar area on weekends, adorned with a small bar and several fire-places. Service was average. Selection of bottles is very good. Tap selection was limited but strong. Good draft and bottle prices. I will be going back.
A grocery store with a beer garden in the middle of a nice neighborhood. The beer wraps around the entire outside of the store. Lots of beer here but holy cow this is expensive. Probably $2 more for a bottle here than other place I’ve seen, although everything in this area is expensive. Still this is an impressive selection. A mix a six will cost you $20+ but you will find a decent selection of beers new to you
