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...
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.
This store has a very nice beer selection and it is growing consistently. Craft Beer seems to be the focus of this store vs wine that is featured at most other wine and beer stores. Selection of Belgians is impressive. Also has some beers that others don’t carry such as Bell’s. Staff is knowledgeable and helpful. Only knock is a lack of build your own singles six packs. Store location is good, easy in and out.
Went here for the first time on 12-31-03. NICE slection of beers! Picked up some Quelque Chose, Abbaye Val Dieu, and Orval among others. They had several nice beer sets available and plenty of imports and micros. The staff seemed very receptive of my inquiries into other beers and stated they were trying to get as much in as possible. I noticed that they were on a first name basis with some customers and were directing others towards particular beers based on what they liked. Definitely worth your time!

This store now has a good ’mix your own 6-pack’ of singles available in the area. At least a variety of 80+ micro’s to choose from. I believe for about $12.
I just had to rerate this place after going back. The selection is still good for the richmond market i suppose. But the customer service and beer knowledge has vastly improved. Can’t say much for the other employees, but the scrawny guy definitely has a passion for beer. And has quite a bit of knowledge to back it up. He also totally hooked me up today when I came by. Not only did he break up two sixers of good, moderately expensive beer, and sell me a mix pack below the 6-pack price, he threw in a bottle of hopslam from the back room! I will certainly be shopping here again.
