Family owned and operated for more than fifteen years, we are a wine and beer store in the award-winning, neo-traditional community of the Kentlands in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Commonly referred to as "The Corner Store Beer & Wine," we are conveniently located on Main Street across from the Main Street Pavilion.
There are many good reasons to shop at Main Street Beer and Wine, your friendly Kentlands beer and wine store. To begin, we have a great selection of beer and wine at very reasonable prices.
Plus, we carry a selection of typical convenience store items such as soft drinks, juices, bottled water, ice cream, chips, snacks, cigarettes, candy bars, and bags of ice.
If you're feeling lucky, we are also a Maryland Lottery Agent. Pick your numbers, grab some scratchers, or purchase a Mega Millions or Powerball lottery ticket!
Finally, just in case you've already blown all your cash on lottery tickets, beer, or wine, we have an ATM machine on the premises.
We like to think that our warm, friendly service is embraced by the community and is appreciated by everybody. The owner of Main Street Beer and Wine has come a very long way and has no intentions of going back anytime soon. This may be the reason for his extremely cheerful behavior. Either that, or he's doing a little too much wine tasting in his spare time.
As your friendly Kentlands beer store, we try to stock all the popular brands of domestic beers, crafts microbrews, and import beers. We are not your upscale "hotsy totsy" kind of a beer store. We are more like a comfortable pair of shoes, with a few holes for ventilation. In other words, we are your regular old neighborhood beer and wine store, where it's not uncommon to see customers popping in wearing almost anything. We try to stick to the basics of running a good beer and wine store: plenty of inventory on hand, at prices you can afford.
Which brands and varieties of beer do you like best? As your Gaithersburg beer store, we want to stock what you want to drink. Tell us about your favorite beers so we know what you like. Or, cast a vote by simply buying what you like. We'll do our best to keep it in stock for your next visit.
And since you're in the mood to read, here are a few fun facts about beer. Beer is the world's oldest and most widely consumed alcoholic beverage, and the third most popular drink overall, after water and tea. Today, the brewing industry is a global business, consisting of several dominant multi-national companies and many thousands of smaller producers ranging from brewpubs to regional breweries. More than 35 billion gallons of beer are sold every year, producing total global revenues in excess of $300 billion dollars. Now that's truly a lot of beer.
When it comes to wine, we follow the popular trends on what's hot and what's not. We try to cater to our customers' requests. If you can't find a particular wine in stock, simply ask us to order it for you. We don't mind stocking your favorite wine for your future visits to our Gaithersburg wine store. For those of you who need a little help in selecting the right wine for the right occasion, we have included some helpful information about this wonderful type of alcohol here.
You can match food with wine according to either similarities or contrasts.
It's important to match not just the flavors of the wine with the food but also its body and weight.
