Stopped here since I was on the "Golden Mile". Beer selection seemed alright, pricing seemed fair. I actually scored some decent marked-down beers looking around some. Service was decent. Not wowed but not disappointed either. Worth the stop if in the area sometimes.

More focused on wine than beer, as stated by prior reviewers. However they have a respectable selection of craft beers, including some things not typically seen in other local shops. Staff are not overly helpful. Example: I asked for an empty box to gather a bunch of 750ml bottles. They said "bring them to the counter when you’re ready and we’ll take care of it", and they then put them into a box. So, congratulations - I bought less than I might otherwise have. Worth a stop if you’re on the "strip" in Frederick for the selection.
Stopped in for the first time recently and was a little disappointed. Medium sized store, no singles, fair selection of large bottles. Prices seem typical, a few looked a bit high. Service was non-existent (not that I was looking for any) May not be bad if you are already in that area, but it is not worth a special trip.
Don’t expect too much from this strip mall liquor store. There really wasn’t much that was amazing here and the prices seemed to me to be on the high side. If you live nearby, it might be worth the occasional stop to see if you can find a diamond in the rough, but otherwise it’s not worth going out of your way for.
A shopping center liquor store with an average (at best) selection of beers. The prices are on par with the region, though there were some mark-downs worth a double take, like 4-year old DFH Raison D’Extra for $5.99. The staff might be helpful if English is not your first language.
Prices are high, but they usually get some decent beers in. Overall it is OK, they just expanded, but really are more focused on wine than micro or craft beers. Prices are high.

Picked up several singles/bombers here. Decent selection and prices, even got a ’case discount’ because I bought quite a few. If this place allowed you to break six-packs, it’d be much better. I saw a lot of different local micros that I’d not had, but were only available by the six pack. Found a few goodies that I’d not seen in western PA.
MEH... mediocre selection at best. sign reading ’do not break up sixpacks’ next to a small selection of singles from broken up sixers! a lot of stuff i can get in AZ and deus for $48... wtf? i’ll say it again, meh.

My new favorite beer store in western Maryland. Great selection: 2005 and 2006 Interlude, Fantome Hiver, Noel and others, Pannepot (Danish version), Drie Fonteinen Oude Gueuze and Schaerbeekse Kriek. They don’t allow breaking of six-packs, but most good stuff is put out as singles, bombers and 750s. Smaller selection than Ye Old Spirit Shop, but overall the quality of the bottles is higher.
