MJ is the store manager -- he provides expert advice on Belgian Trappist Ales and US Breweries making Belgian Style Ales. I highly recommend this branch of Total Wine because of MJ’s expertise. A beverage shop for the "beer-lover."

I love these huge megastores that we don’t have in my home state of PA. This place had rows and rows of individual bottles, then a row of six packs, a row of cases and some coolers with cold beer. Found some great stuff not available in PA and the prices were about half. Nice store, but was slightly disappointed that the VA stores didn’t sell spirits
I’m pretty happy with this store. BYO 6-pack with a decent selection (beats Norm’s big time), and good prices. Went here a few times during my visit, and I always found quite a few ones to try. They are quick to re-stock, and overall a smooth shopping experience. Highly recommended.
They have probably the greatest selection in Loudoun County. The biggest draw for me is the ability to make your own six pack. They occasionally get some very good stuff in too. Some staff are very knowledgeable and some aren’t. Overall you can definitely find something here to quench your thirst!
Skipped the wine section of course and focused on the beers. Very good selection of US beers and different countries. I got three new countries and five new states. Good service. Agree that it is not very organized. They have tried to split it by beer style, then alphabetically, but they must be using a different local alphabet. Good prices, though imports a tad expensive.

As noted, head straight for the back of the store. There are various "display" stacks in the aisles on the way back but the bulk of the beer is on back.
Selection is very, very good. If you can't find a beer you like here,you probably don't like beer. I found some things I had not seen before like Mikkeller Spontanwildstrawberry and Morland Old Crafty Hen.
Beer is grouped in a semi-logical way by style/region. At least there is some rhyme or reason to it.
Staff was helpful, they searched and tried to locate two or three things for me.
This was a pleasant surprise. Visiting friends in Potomac Falls, this is their local wine merchant. Having read previous reviews, I knew this place offered a wide range of 12oz singles, and this proved to be the case. The beers came from across the USA, at decent prices and offering the full range of styles. I certainly felt no need to look at the foreign imports or six packs. having said that, this place covers all the needs of my English immigrant friend, with many Suffolk beers available. Staff were friendly and efficient at the checkout. A great shop.

It looks like a supermarket except they sell nothing but wine and beer. As the name implies the store is about 2/3 wine and 1/3 beer. They have a nice selection of imported and craft beers and a number of large bottles. They do encourage you to make your own six pack with everything they offer as a sixer available which seems fairly unprecedented. Their selection is better than Wegman’s but only through sheer volume and not quality. Prices are very reasonable for the area.
