I miss the old redlight location, but this one does seem to be bringing in a bigger crowd. That being said, I always try to stop in at non-peak hours. When it's packed it becomes a bit too loud and unpleasant. If you stop in when there isn't many people this is the best place to find crafts in central Florida. The bartenders are all very knowledgable, and mostly pleasent.
Prices are reasonable on draft and more common brews, but the markup is a little steep for the moderately rare and higher bottles. They do have a nice vintage list though.
Overall a winner!

Stopped in here while down in Florida during the Christmas holidays (2013) after I read a great review by one of my adopted beer sons. He was spot on with his take of this great beer establishment. Great vibe, great brews on tap, and a vintage section to die for (yeah I splurged and picked up a vintage DFH Raison D'Extra .... kinda regret now that I didn't pick up the 2 Calling Birds as well). At any rate, if you are NEAR Orlando I'd highly recommend hitting this great spot.

This is fantastic place for craft beer. I'm not a big fan of loud environments when I'm trying to hang out with friends, but for the selection they have I'm willing to sacrifice. The service is good, I gave it a 3 only because they can't help that the place is always packed and can only do so much for each customer. I imagine it would be amazing when not so crowded. It's a nice building, the old Carrier dealer from way back. I really like how they have a cooler full of aged beers, though I think the prices on some of those are a bit high. I really like the set up inside. The selection, again, is just ridiculous compared to any other bar in the area. There's so much to choose from on tap and in bottles/cans. They rotate regularly as well, so you can guarantee that you can go often and still have plenty of options to choose from. Moving out to that area soon, so I'll probably go a lot more often and probably enjoy it a lot more since I'll be able to go on days where it's no so busy/crowded. Definitely worth a visit and then some.

Best place in Orlando, or Central Florida for that matter, to get great craft beer. They have approximately 30 beers on tap, two of which are cask, and the list changes fairly often. Their bottle list is quite extensive and they have a couple vintage coolers in the back with some bottles at least several years old. Highly recommended.

Finally checked this place on Friday night. The only real complaint is the parking, which can be very difficult on a Friday and Saturday night. The place was packed but we were able to grab a table. Our bartender was very good, even with recommendations and the beers were reasonably priced. I was surprised to see that they offered a fairly large selection of beers aged up to 5 or so years as well as 2 different cask beers. the aged beers were expensive but everything else, like I said, was reasonably priced. We stumbled on a 7venth Sun tap takeover, which was a nice surprise.

I've visited Redlight numerous times at both its old and new location. The new location is much much better than the last location. The bar has plenty of seating and the space itself is very open. I do wish they had more seating, but I think that they are limited as to how many seats they can have per city code. Parking is easy during the week, but can be tough to park during Friday & Saturday evening. The beer selection is always great, they tend to have on tap pretty much any style that you like and they do have a large selection of bottles available. The staff has been nothing but AWESOME since I have started going there. Redlight is a place to go to if you are visiting Orlando or are passing by.

Went here for the first time with a buddy last month. Apparently I missed out on their original location and the new, current site is very nice. Good sized with a big bar filling the middle and various space around the perimeter including a few tables but there is also an upstairs that didn;t seem to be open for business yet. It's a sort of dark, busy place with some peripheral chairs and seating arrangements beyond the bar. Bar tenders seemed pretty attentive, responsive and knowledgeable about the beers. Free tastes were not a problem. The selection was solidly a craft beer lover's idea of a good night out with numerous big craft brewers along with some more local, smaller ones like Cigar City. Pricing was very friendly for a quality beer line up like this. No food, but there were a few local places you could easily walk to if in need of solid sustenance. I thought the staff was pretty friendly for a busy place and I have no complaints. I've seen better selections but I also was pretty content with what they had, and i expect the selection changes constantly so it's just a matter of when you hit it and what you're looking for. I definitely will return and can recommend this place to any beer lover.

I was south of Orlando on business, so decided to make the journey to Redlight Redlight based on the reviews. This joint is worth the accolades bestowed upon it. Great tap selection, great bottle list which is fairly up to date, knowledgeable bar tenders, decent vibe, and great food card outside. There were four Cigar City taps on, plus a good selection of various styles from outside of FL, including a lambic tap. Can't argue with that! Pricing isn't bad, either. Definitely worth checking out, even with a short drive.

Went there on a tuesday night and was very impressed by the selection. Very knowledgable bartenders willing to challange people to try new things. This one girl wanted a blue moon and the bartended got her to drink a St. Louis Gueze and she loved it! Great example of beer advocacy!
They had a randall with Cigar City Porter flowing though coffee beans and a great looking vintage list, and a great glassware collection.
Would love to visit again, just don't ever want to set foot in Orlando without being drunk first.

This place is easily the best beer bar in town! Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Laid back atmosphere. Great selection of Drafts, most of them are rotating daily. You can usually find a good Cigar City selection on tap. There is also a big Bottle list, and a nice Vintage list as well. They are beer and wine only, no food served but there are a variety of food trucks on site most nights. The worst part about it is that I don't live closer! I'd recommend stopping in for a beer if you are in Orlando.
