This is a great place to find many elusive beers. I couldn't tell you how many are there, but they have beers from nearly every country. The store is very clean and the stock is well organized to avoid having to scrutinize store shelves. Prices are reasonable.

The service, as other reviewers have pointed out, is not up to par; I might go as far to say terrible. I asked one seemingly intelligent employee if they had anymore Weihenstephaner hefe in stock and was given a nonsensical glare. I attempted to clarify my selection by uttering "You know, the wheat beer..?" and once again recieved the "deer in headlights" look. Oh well. Can't have it all.

Regardless, do not pass this store up. Make yourself a shopping list and most importantly- a budget. I guarantee you'll end up buying a few more beers than expected.

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.
