Oh no they made the dreaded move! So my words are meaningless. But an ode to a very cool place with very cool people. I creeped into redlight redlight with Woody on the the WHF III after a mention from the great folks at the Abby. This is a place that if you don't know its there you will miss it, but worth the trouble to find.
It was dark as we assenced the worn wooden steps (real dark for me as I always wear shades)up up but no light at the end of the tunnel. The decor was varied. No table or I beleive chair matched. A small stage with bikes, they say bands play on the weekend. The bar was small about 7 chairs with about 8 tables. I loved the place, felt right at home. It appeared by all accounts to be someones demolished attic. Beer selection was good and the bartender was excellent, turned me on to some good beers.
Redlight Redllight will always have a place in my heart, because it was my first round of Lagunitas Lucky 13 now one of my Favorites. If you are a philly guy the Kybher Pass vibe for sure, and music about the same. Good luck with the new place, I know it will rock and will stop by next time in the area.
The people in the bar were excellent made two new friends in a very short stay.

I was staying in town for business and decided to give this place a try. I wasn't quite as enamored with this place as others, but this is probably the best selection in Orlando.
The whole area kind of lacks any real feel to it. It is located in a tiny strip mall with other restaurants and clothes shops surrounding it. The exterior is non-descript, and the interior lacks any feel. It is vacuous with no real attitude or ambiance.
My one complaint, which really isn't a true complaint, just a preference, is that out of the 25 or so taps, there was only ONE, yes ONE IPA. I know not everyone is a hophead, but this is the only BA worthy bar I have been to in the past 6 years or so that didn't have atleast three or four IPAs on tap. The only one available was Swamp Head Big Nose, which was a nice beer. The variety of styles is unmatched, which is most desireable.
The style selection runs the gamut from Altbier to Barrel Aged Saison to Helles to Schwarzbier. The bottled selection was awesome and rivaled any bottle selection I have seen anywhere in Florida. There had to be 500 bottled beers. They even had a huge ass bottle of St Feuillien (sp?) that was a 9L bottle, also known as a Salmanazar, for sale. The bartender said it was about $600.
Service was okay. I wasnt really acknowledged when I walked in and was ignored for about two minutes. After the initial introductions, the servers were knowledgable and conversational.
For beer, this is a true destination in Orlando.
