Huge selection. Great prices. If you find the beer buyer buyers they know a lot. Super clean store and setup. Lots of things you can buy as singles and a fairly big cooler. Best I’ve found outside of CA by far.
This place will always have a special place in my heart. The service here is great. The staff is usually pretty helpful for both wine and beer. They know what they have and don’t have. The store is modern and well organized. It does get crowded on a Friday or Saturday evening and can be difficult to find parking. They seem to have nice turnover in their beer, which is nice to see. Selection is definitely above average. There are a good amount of six packs in the freezer and on the shelves. There is a good variety in style. They do have some 12 oz singles, but the selection is small. This isn’t the place to come for a BYO 6 pack, but great to come for a more uncommon import or micro. They do a lot of tastings too. Most of them are wine, but they have some beer if you hit it right. Overall the place is really classy and feels like it belongs more in Mt. Washington or Baltimore County rather than Hampden.
Best beer store in the Baltimore City, always a great selection with very fair prices. Staff is very friendly. When they accidentally charged me twice for a bottle I called and they offered to credit my card, but instead I had a second bottle set aside and picked it up the next week. Highly recommended if you are visiting Charm City.

Take a stroll in this quirky neighborhood, have lunch on the Avenue (the main road thru this section of the city), then definitely stop here to load up on one fo the best selections of craft beers and quality imports in Baltimore. Friendly staff always ready to answer a question or open a register. Great place to catch the latest releases or newest distributors. And everything is reasonably priced.
The Wine Source is located in Baltimore’s Hampden neighborhood. This place is a hidden gem in my neighborhood, but don’t fooled by it’s name because good beer is an essential element to this business. This place has the largest selection of American, Belgian, German, English, and Canadian craftbeer south of Wells Liquors. In addition to the major brewing countries you will also find many other beers from Eastern Europe and elsewhere. The Wine Source puts an emphasis on local and regional breweries. Expect to find many seasonal and rare/hard to find beers. This place is great if you are looking for a cold six, because they have a twenty door coldbox and at least half the spaces are reserved for craftbeer and imports. The staff’s knowledge can range from adequate to above average.

Nice shop,not just for the beer. always love to stop in and browse when I am in Baltimore. Really great selection
You’ll find loads of regionals, rare finds, and seasonal goodies. A few shelves full of Germans, some brits, a good mess of Belgians available in singles. Decent prices and good parking setup. Don’t be fooled by the Wine name or the distributor look from the outside.
