When I walked into this place my jaw dropped. They must have over 500 types of beers to choose from to make your own customized 6 packs. Not only is their selection huge but their prices are lower than any other store I’ve been to.
It’s Total Wine Etc., so the selection is extensive and there is a huge selection of singles so you can make your own 6ers. This place is only limited by the Maryland distributors, i.e., the Virginia Total Wine is always a treat when I get to the other side of the Potomac.
What I would call a superstore when it comes to beers. Very large store for the area sometimes I can find beers that are available in smaller less stocked stores than I can find here. They have the best on hand selection of keg beers (I look for interesting 1/6th kegs and always have a 1/2 keg of Guinness on tap which I can always rely on being in stock). You can always order anything in a keg that’s available but I like the on hand selection. I don’t know any place else in the area where the keg selection is as good.
Recommended by Andrew at Alewife, thank you sir. This place has a massive beer selection, heavy on regionals and locsls, but with a smattering of stuff from all over, including Central America. Staff are friendly, prices are good. What more do you need?

This place should be called Sins R Us. It is a huge store in a strip mall that sells mostly wine, but also as advertised the 500-600 plus beers (all sold singly!), cigars, chocolates and I don’t know what all else. Lots of US microbrews, but as some one else said, Belgian selection is thin comparatively speaking. Great place with pretty good service if you need help. Only complaint is the beer is located just to the left when you come in the door and I got run over by shopping buggies about every 2 minutes while I was ogling the beer.
Overall a good place for singles, good selection given the Maryland distribution limitations. Very busy place and aisles a little too narrow to navigate with banging your head a bit. Not as big as other Total Wine stores, a function of the specific location. Beer prices seemed decent although the 10% 6 pack discount disappeared. Service is great... lots of people with knowledge and helpful. No one was condescending when asking for "value" wine selections. Other than the crowding, a great place.
Wow, this place is intense. Contrary to previous ratings from years ago, Corridor Wine has really amped up their game in the beer market. Approx. 400+ beer selctions from Trappist, Belgian, imports from around the world, and a solid selction of micros from across the USA including new, multiple selctions of Black IPAs. Beer displays are infused into endcaps and the aisles of wines, plus a beer tasting amongst the wine tastings this afternoon! Prices were, by far, the lowest (Chimay Grande Reserve 750 mL $11.99, Dogfishead 60 min 6-pk $7.49, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale 6-pk $6.99) in the area. Downfall was that all beer sections weren’t ’faced’ or ’zoned’ causing me to look and search to see if product was in-stock; look dishelveled and too well shopped. Decent cigar, liquor, and premium sections and gigantic wine selection. A dominant operation-
Decent bottle shop that I would hold in higher regard if not for its proximity to Astor Liquors. Warehouse type layout, great wine selection. Printed buying guide listing the beers they carry. The carry a couple things that Astors doesn’t, 3 Monts and La Trappe (non-quad) come to mind. Very helpful and knowledgable staff. Was kind of neat to see a palate of Bigfoot last time I was there. Open Sundays (Astors isn’t).
