Large liquor and wine store with a very large collection of beers scattered throughout the store. Do hun t around, because you’ll find beers where you least expect them - and don’t miss the fridges, where the selection is very different from what’s on the shelves. Worth going out of your way to find this place.
Fairly nice store. Singles everywhere but disorganized, not in one particular area. Not the best selected of Belgians, not a lot of rare gems, but the US micro selected is pretty decent. I guess I was expecting more from the reviews, but I still consider this store to be one of the better ones int the PA/MD/DC area.
I stopped in on a Sunday afternoon and was only one of two customers at the time. The beer selection is standard for the metro areas with better prices than some. There was nothing out of the ordinary but still a solid selection of beers. The whiskey and bourbon selection seemed solid as well.
Based on the recommendations here, I stopped by while driving Route 15. I left with a case of singles of stuff new to my inventory. Nice little shop, friendly staff, and pretty good selection of regional micros and a few new imports. Of course, selling singles is a huge draw for a beer hunter, so kudos to the Spirit Shop!
Located in a shopping center which at quick glance looks like a medical buildings hitch makes its rustic interior a tad ironic. Most of the beer is on the left side of the store and in the back coolers but the have stuff scattered all over the store. They have a ton of local and regional craft along with some good national bottles as well. They also sell by the singe bottle which is always appreciated. They also get in a lot of the latest and greatest like the new Ommegang Biere de garde. Another solid MD bottle shop.
Nice bottle shop. Low key while having a great selection, which is the perfect combo in my book. Located in a kinda office building complex. Parking was fine, but I was there on a Saturday, so the work week could be worse. Ambience is some shelving units and boxes piled everywhere. Good selection of locals, US micros, good foreign selection. Some things are priced, some are not, though the prices seem to be pretty competitive. Things are somewhat disorganized... so be sure to peek behind bottles, and you might find something not apparent. They allow you to pull singles from any six pack, which makes a good store a great store in my mind. The employees were friendly and helpful, though I didn’t ask any beer questions. They gave me 10% off for getting more than six bottles. Overall, a very nice stop.
A well stocked store with a decent selection of US micros (which is what, as a visitor, I’m really interested in). And, really essential for a visitor, they had plenty of singles plus you can spilt six packs. Not really very "Ye Olde" though.
2015-03-06. We stopped in Frederick Maryland to visit Ye Old Spirit Shop where we loaded up on bottles. They had a decent selection but the most interesting stuff was a bit pricey. Good sized store, easy to get to from the highway if you are just passing through.
Plenty of parking out front in the parking lot. The ambiance does not matter too much in a beer store, but it is just plain. The service was good, I told him I like wheat beers and a guy actually walked me around the place and helped me pick some out. You can get singles of anything as long as the package is open, big plus for me. The meads are with the wines. Pricing is reasonable.
Great selection. You can split 6-packs - I like that. I really could have bought loads, but limited myself to 8, because I knew I’d have a problem sampling them on my roadtrip with Chris_o and I already had too many to carry home to Denmark. If You’re nearby, then don’t miss this place. For a liquor store it is pretty cozy.
