Stopped in here today while in town. My first time at one of these. Big warehouse place with huge wine and liquor selection. Beer selection is solid enough but nothing particularly tough to find. Highlights were Clown Shoes and Bruery regulars. Otherwise, can find most of the stock nearby at small shops here in Gainesville. Left here without buying a single thing.

This store was a supposed must-stop on my way down the Dale Mabry. I must admit I was at least a little impressed. It's a nice, clean, tidy store with good space and room to look around. I like that there's an aisle dedicated just to singles, as the mix-a-sixer is my favorite option for trying as much as I can. The selection wasn't the biggest I've seen but very large by some standards. There was a good-sized cooler area with stuff in it, too. I saw plenty of Belgians and other imports I don't see here, which may or may not be saying much. While it was the standard stuff, there was also enough that's unavaiable to certain areas to satisfy me. Nobody stocking asked any questions or really glanced at me, but the cashier was friendly. The knowledge was fairly standard for the business as far as I could tell. This is a good place to go beer shopping.

The prices on their beer selection (which is one of the worst I have seen at a Total Wine) are a bit high. They did, however, have a few offerings I haven't been able to find at other Total Wine locations such as Tropical Heatwave from CCB and Old Elephant Foot from Tampa Bay Brewing. Other than that, I might not stop here on my next trip to CCB.

Probably the best place in Tampa that I went to for beer selection. They have a really nice selection of Belgian beers. The prices were just a bit above average especially for the singles. I found a few bottles that were out of date, so be sure to check. They also had a few beers that were listed as 'in stock' on the webpage, but they were nowhere to be found in the store.

After reading about this place on I went there with a good list of what to expect. I went the week before Easter so the stock was probably a little low. They had a very decent selection and most of the items were cheaper than whole food in the same complex, most likely due to the quanity they are buying compare to whole foods. I ended up coming home with some Stone Reunition, few different CCB 6rs and 250mls, couple various 6 packs of dogfish, some hoptimum,, and some greenflash. Not bad for a first visit, wish they had a few other breweries I was looking for but other than that I was very satisfied.

Was going to just go to the Whole Foods in this shopping center, but saw Total Wine and threw a U-turn in the parking lot. If you've ever been to a Total Wine, you know what to expect. The selection was insane. One full aisle (both sides) of large format bottles and singles, and one full aisle of six and 12 packs. We grabbed a CCB Humidor and a four pack of cider, because we wanted something canned. No one helped us on the floor, but the clerk at the counter seemed a little frigid. Odd how they wrote down mine and my girlfriend's drivers license numbers...I know we're out of state, but it was odd. I'd come back again and stock up a little more than I did this time.

Visited Total Wine after my CCB flight.

Atm- A smaller Total wine to say the least. Smaller aisles and dimly lit store. Employees seemed to pay no attention.

Quality- Good products on the shelf with a few holes overall. Had a lot of state ticks and some random beers I needed from a couple years ago to re-review.

Service- Like I said, employees didnt pay much attention, but when I needed something they were attentive.

Selection- Good range of products from all up and down the east coast. Saw some things I wasnt expection. New CCB beers, Weyerbacher Insanity amongst others.

Food- N/A

Value- Every single beer that I wanted in a single was between 1.79 and 3.29. A steal if you ask me.

Atmosphere: Located a mere stone's throw from Cigar City and Whole Foods, this mammoth store is located in a very pleasant (though I heard often congested) shopping complex. The inside was constructed just like most other Total Wines.

Quality and Service: No one really came to my aid while I was in there, but that was probably because my cart was filled up with about $150 worth of goodies, so the employees probably just assumed I knew what I was doing.

Selection: Awesome Cigar City selection! On the day I went, I picked up (in some cases, multiples of): Jose Marti, Jai Aai, White Oak, Cubano Espresso, Big Sound, and many many more selections from CC and St. Somewhere. Additionally, they had several rows and end caps of sixers from just about every brewery that is distributed to that part of Florida.

Value: The prices here were about a buck less than CC (and maybe less than the Whole Foods nearby), which makes it an ideal first stop before hitting Cigar City.

I highly recommend this place!

Before I was a beermaniac I used to frequent the Total Wine in Orlando for Jack Daniels & Miller Light never paying attention to the selection. I recently went to this location and I was impressed although I have had most of the beers there the is such a selection of local brewerys I have never seen or heard of. Plus it is right around the corner from Cigar City Brewery. Price are god due to the volume they purchaase. And if you like to drink wine or spirits this is the place! And the staff is friendly and willing to help find your requests.

This seemed to be the place to load up on beers from the South or other places I can't get at home. However, it seemed I knew more about beer than some of the people who worked there. I also wanted to find Cigar City Improvisation there and it wasn't, but maybe I was too early. I was able to pick up their imperial stout and scotch ale, though. Another asset was a large selection of singles and bombers. I thought the prices were great. A must stop for any out of towner going to Cigar City nearby.
