Not worth a stop. They have a bunch of bombers, some I hadn’t seen, but way expensive. I passed them all up. Service was NIL. Some girl behind the counter playing on her phone - no hello, no offering of help. Nada. Singles selection is maybe 75? Nothing special or anything you haven’t seen in any other place in the area. I ended up with mix 6 of shit I pass up everywhere else. Mainly because I did’t want to whip out a credit card for a can of Diet Coke.
Well presented selection of small single bottles and six-pack collections of imported and domestc craft beers. Some selections are spotty (e.g., Samuel Smith Oatmeal Stout - "we used to have that one", Chimay blue-top but not red, Fuller’s London Pride but not ESB, etc.) Good location for West End, and ample free parking.
I would highly recommend this place. Went with some friends while on a weekend trip to Busch Gardens (we needed some good beer after being force-fed the Anheuser-Busch swill all weekend). The selection was very good especially for the size of the store. The service was top notch. They allow you to build your own six packs. I can’t remember the prices exactly but they were very reasonable. Much more personal experience versus shopping at a large store like Total Wine (which I really like but it’s not the same). If you’re in the Richmond area you should definitely check this place out.
BIG beer selection here, with a smallish singles selection (build your own 6-pack for 10.99). Nice selection in terms of quality and variety. Staff not helpful but still friendly. Ambience is strip mall but still halfway decent inside for the setting. I could see parking being an issue, but it wasn’t bad while I was there. Prices are decent.
Top shelf! I just moved to Richmond and happy to finally find a real brew shop. Great selection and better yet...excellent service. Friendly, knowledgeable staff (Learn something new everytime). Def. reccommend checking out the Friday evening tastings to sample diff. beer/wine. Always a great experience!!!!
Great selection overall especially if you are looking for American Microbrews (and a wide selection of belgians). They feature a wine and beer tasting session every Friday afternoon which is a great way to try new beers. The staff is certainly knowledgable and won’t steer you wrong. And its a great place to go to refill the kegorater...as long as they distribute to the area...
