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.

This is what a bottle shop should be. Really great selection, great tap list, and the service is very friendly and helpful. And the food is incredibly good!

Visited here the last day in Charlottesville before we went home after my wife and my mini-moon. Didn’t know what to expect. Restaurant is small, but appropriate for the size of the place. Bar is cool. Lots of bottles, singles, six-packs. Local, foreign, etc. Nice amount of cider viariety too. Staff was really nice, both in the restaurant part and in the store. Wow, I’ll be returning here next time I’m in town.

Visited 10.5.16 in the morning. Very cool place. Good selection on tap, good selection on the fridge, they let you open sixpacks. Friendly and knowledgeable staff that would let you sample what’s on tap and advise you on local bottles. Good selection of crisps and also ice cream. A little on the pricey side, but a very good place. Highly recommended.

A very nice place to finish up the night, I swung by here with Drake. Tucked away in a nondeScript strip mall, the place does not look like much until you start looking at the shelves. A great selection of locals, regionals, and national brands are a little on the expensive side but not too outrageous.

In addition to the bottles the drafts include about eight taps. At the time one of them was Stone Depth Charge. Looking over the availability this doesn’t surprise me - if you were looking for the best tap selection in the area it might be here. Just be prepared to pay a little for the privilege.

Overall this would be the first stop on my trip once I exhausted any brewpubs that I wanted to check out. Just be sure to leave some room in the car in case you are looking for a number of local ticks.

Big selection of local, regional, and nat’l/internat’l brews. The staff are highly knowledgeable and helpful, and the restaurant (separate space from the beer store) also has interesting food and good service. A must-stop in Charlottesville.

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.

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.

Just had a nice visit here with Drake and HopTsing. Tasty bison burger, if a little pricey, nice draft list with a good mix of local and not local. Good service at the bar. Plus was able to grab some to go.

Emeister84  (130) Charlottesville, Virginia | June 7, 2014
Parking lot is small and tight to get in and out of (no jokes please). A small place which is always packed. Lots of cool brewery memorabilia on the walls. Cool collection of glassware, growlers, etc. on display as well. Food is quite good, with very natural tasting ingredients, though definitely not cheap, especially considering the amount you’re given. Nice draft selection, 15 or more, usually including limited rarities, seasonals, and just really good beers. The service is solid. There are many workers most of which are very knowledgeable, and all of which are very friendly. Bar fits about a dozen. They do not offer flights, but they’re always good about giving tastes. Small inside seating, only about 6 tables which are very close together. Larger outside seating in a covered/tarped area, which is also heated in the winter, and a small standing bar and a few picnic tables outside in the sun. This place is also a great retailer. Some items may be slightly higher in price than some of the more corporate stores, but with the inventory they keep it kind of makes sense. They also fill growlers. I have been here many more times than I’ve checked in, and I’ll keep going back for sure.
