My 100th Virginia place rating, and this is a special place indeed. The first thing visible when you approach from street parking or the small lot is the expansion tent, always a good sign that demand exceeds supply. Inside is a deli slash bar slash coffee shop slash beer store slash restaurant, so you can do any of the things you normally so in those places simultaneously, or in any combination. The shop selection is extensive, with tons of local stuff. The food is very tasty and varies from bar snacks to deli stuff to full meals, and even breakfast tacos and brunch. Service is quick and cheerful. A must-visit if you’re anywhere in the region.

Beer Run is a great one stop shop consisting of a cafe, bar and bottle shop. Quite the beer selection with a huge bottle range of regional breweries and from further afield too. The central bar is good for trying a few of the draft beers and bottles/cans can be purchased to open as well. Friendly bartender who was clearly knowledgeable about the beers. The best spot to start on a day crawling around Charlottesville.

There is a lot packed into this little shop/deli/bar in Charlottesville. The deli produced a great sandwich to accompany my beers at the bar, and I could not leave without buying some bottles to go. The beer aisles are cramped and well-stocked. There are some book cases holding singles and a cold can open fridge, a multi-door 6-pack cooler, and a bottle singles cooler. The service was a bit unresponsive, partly because it was shift change.

This is my kind of place. It’s like someone had a beer store and said to themselves. "Hey self, you know what would be really awesome. A bar right in the middle of my beer store!" And that’s pretty much the vibe. They have a nice patio on the outside. On the inside half of the space is for their beer store which is almost all craft beer split between regional, national ,and international brands, and the other half the bar and restaurant area. They had 13 good taps, a cask, and PBR although when I ordered it the bartender looked at my like I smacked her mother which was oddly comforting., They don’t do flights but you can buy beer in 10 ounce glasses. The food is mostly comfort food made with local and often organic ingredients and they have a special Sunday Brunch menu. (I really enjoyed the Allagash Fish Tacos.) If I lived in Charlottesville I would definitely be a regular at this place. Keep in mind they share a parking lot with the restaurant next door so parking can be scarce. Many people end up parking on the nearby street.

UPDATE: Beer Run is expanding! Still under construction, they have taken over a neighoring unit. This results in more retail area for beer and wine, and an additional bar with 6 more beer taps and taps dedicated to coffee, kombucha, wine. Best bar in Virginia getting even better! Old score was 92.

This place has come a long way since opening. Good beer selection, weekly tastings, some glassware starting to creep in, a nice bar that features a few macros but also several nice beers. They will often get rarer things such as Starr Hill one-offs and the more rare draft offerings that come to the state. Food is tasty with a natural emphasis. This is a beer store, bar and cafe all at once. Definitely worth a stop if you’re in the area. I mean, how many beer stores do you know of that serve breakfast? There are rumors of expansion plans in the future. If they’re not careful, they just might end up becoming one of the state’s premier beer stops. The service is friendly and helpful to strangers but if you’re fortunate enough to get to know them, the service is that much better. I know I’ve walked in and found a rare beer in my hand before I knew what happened. Locals should come here and should do so repeatedly. Visitors should come here too as its one of the premiere stops in the area. The parking sucks. Other than that, this is a top notch place.

Update: as of November 2011, they have a whole new room for beer. The new room is the foreign beer selection and the original room is the American beer selection. It’s still a work in progress, but its already looking nice and should add to the already very nice bottle selection.

Definitely the premier beer destination in this part of the state. Beer Run’s a hybrid beer store/bar/restaurant that attracts a pretty diverse cross section of C’ville residents. This place isn’t just populated by beer geeks, which helps the ambiance. The bottle shop selection’s well-curated, nice. Beer Run seems to get the pick of the bottles distributed to the area, so you can usually find some pretty cool stuff. Unfortunately, everyone knows this, so limited bottles never stick around. Prices in the store are relatively high. As for the bar/restaurant - the tap selection’s generally pretty good. While the bar annoyingly doesn’t offer flights, the staff are happy to provide samples. Service is prompt. The food’s frankly pretty forgettable, I look forward to a menu overhaul. Overall, an essential stop if you’re in the area.

Really disappointing place. Not only is the selection weak, its unorganized and the staff doesn't know anything. The bartender didn't even know Aslin was from Virginia or able to offer any real recommendations of Virginia beer. Double Starfish was on tap, but come on. Not worth the stop.

Plenty of parking right in front. Big bottle selection. Be sure you check the room in the back. Received quite a bit of help and loaded up. Lots of singles and will break up six packs. Good selection quantity and quality. Hope to be back.

Had a delicious late Sunday lunch of catfish tacos. Interesting and varied draft beer list. Smallest pours are 10 oz which limits the tasting. Nice selection of Lou Reed tunes producing a laid back vibe.

Pretty good beer store and restaurant/bar hybrid. Table seating inside and outside, bar inside. Service was slow getting started but friendly. Around 15 drafts, didn’t see any local stuff on during my visit. Smallest size is 10 ounces but they’re happy to give you samples to try before you decide on something. Good amount of bottles/cans for taking out or consuming on site. Saturday morning breakfast is a nice selection of breakfast tacos. Ordered 3 and a side of potatoes, 2 tacos are more than enough if you’re hungry. Prices are about average. Worth a stop if you’re in or passing Charlottesville.
