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.

Great low key place to really enjoy some craft beers and wine! The barkeeps are knowledgeable and will help you find a good beer, whatever you're in the mood for! Try some vintage beers or even taste some of their own brewed Redlight Redlight beer on tap!

I really like this place. I live about 20-something minutes away and go once or twice a month. I never have had a bad experience during any visit, particularly at the current location. As far as I can remember, RL RL has now had 3 locations (it began over near Rollins College in Winter Park, and then moved to a spot off Colonial Drive, and now it is near Audubon Park/Baldwin Park) and each has had a unique charm/atmosphere.

The bottle selection here is great and the diversity of the drafts is impressive and interesting. Some of the bottles are very pricey, though. I've declined buying certain things due to the price and wish that they were slightly lower. It's not that big a deal, but certain bottles that shouldn't cost so much do cost a lot here.

Overall, this place is great. The employees are awesome and do an impressive job, considering that it gets very busy sometimes and that there is a lot going on during such events as Zwanze Day. I am looking forward to my next visit. Definitely stop in here if you've yet to or if you're visiting Orlando.

Great Bar. Being a patron as soon as I could legally drink I've seen the three variations of the grand bar! Every bartender has great stories, knows their stuff and are able to recommend the beer you want to drink, that you haven't had! If you are ever in the vicinity of this great local establishment, do your self a favor and pass on by!

Their homebrew ran out so I got another DIPA on tap. The waitress covered my beer because I didn't get the one I wanted. Very nice staff and wonderful selection. Definitely going back when I get a chance.

Awesome ambiance. Awesome beer selection. Beer bars don't get much better than this.

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.

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.
