Easy to find, plenty of parking, friendly staff. Good selection, not just regionally, but nationwide (within Virginia’s archaic alcohol import laws) and globally. Has a number of beers that are not available in DC. Worth a stop.
Great selection of singles, US, German and Belgian, though not as expansive as the selection at Chevy Chase, this is a pretty good store, even when I was told during my visit that their selection was dwindling that day. Prices were great, I think this is where I will pick up a lot of the more common, but exceptional, bottle conditioned Belgians that I like to cellar. Really the only thing available here that you can’t get in DC/MD would be Legend, but I like their prices... plus THEY HAVE CAVE CREEK CHILI BEER!!
A rather small place that puts more emphasis on beer than wine or decorations. The service was confined to the registers, though they were friendly. There are plenty of beers to choose from here, and they offer a 10% discount on 6 or more bottles.
The killer app here is the 10% discount they offer when you make your own sixer. The downside to that is they don’t exactly have the biggest sixer selection. They have a few things here I haven’t seen yet in other shops but I didn’t see a ton here that wasn’t available in other stores. The store is decorated like a fraternity party basement which seems to be the clientele they’re going after. The service on wine seemed more alert than it was for beer. It’s a solid store but not worth me schlepping all the way out to Vienna.

Tucked away next to Fresh Market about four blocks from Vienna Whole Foods so nice to do these back to back. Solid craft beer focused bottle shop like a mini Perfect Pour. Lots of singles, lots of beers you will not find regularly, lets you do mixed six packs it looks like with ~$2 per 12oz for your normal stuff. Knowledgeable, beer geek staff. Prices are higher, not as outrageous as Perfect Pour. But a lot of stuff was a good +$2-3 more than the same stuff at Vienna WF, *if* Whole Foods had it in stock. Will be back to find some more interesting single bottles. One big qualm that I cannot nick the score for here like Perfect Pour is that AT&T gets no service in here so tough luck if you are trying to look up which beers you haven’t had. Ugghhhhh.

This is the best beer store in the greater D.C. area as far as I’m concerned. Nice selection, and the staff is generally friendly and knowledgeable, and willing to talk beer. Plus, they do bulk discounts on 6 or more singles or 6 or more 6 packs.
Place is in a strip mall, so plenty of free parking. Fairy small selection of pretty high quality bottles and I found no rarities, bought one bottle. Prices seem pretty reasonable. Norm is very helpful. Worth a stop if in the area.
A well stocked and well run beer store, with an excellent selection. Sign up for their twitter feeds, and you can join the bros in line for limited releases. Or stop in on a Thursday or Friday and you might get lucky.

Nice little shop in Vienna with a good craft beer selection of domestics and imports. Nice amount of 4 and 6 packs along with bomber bottles and a selection of singles. Discounts including 6 bottles of singles and/or bombers, any combination. Prices are some of the best for local shops in the area. They have a small section of snack foods (peanuts, chips, etc) and dips/salsas/hot sauces. Staff is pretty helpful whenever you have questions. They post most if not all of their new arrivals to Facebook and Twitter which is nice to know when things come in. The more limited releases tend to get snatched up pretty fast despite the bottle limit if you’re not quick enough to get there.
