Traveling to Captiva for a vacation and got a chance to stop in here before heading off the main land.
I really didn't know what I was getting in to and the layout wasn't spectacular. It was more of a warehouse lined with alcoholic beverages. There were plenty of worker's or maybe they were working for the industry but they were pushing different spirits, beers, wine etc. to sample.
There was no clear indication of where things started or ended. The place was clean but I had to go by six packs and single bottles to know where I was. You almost needed a map. Plenty of selection but I found it somewhat hard to zero in on a specific style. Bigger bottles and specialties were in a different area and there were some great finds. So it didn't seem like they were hoarding their white whales.
Price seemed in line with what I would have imagined. They check-out girl even gave us a $10coupon. Overall, it was better than I imagined. I didn't need much customer service. I really just needed more time to look around.

Stopped in here while in town on vacation. The first thing I noticed was the very large selection of not only beer, but wine and liquor. The place was fairly well kept, and clean. It was fairly busy when I was there, but there was a good amount of people working.
The service was alright, it all depended on who you talked to. The first two people I asked for help just pointed off in a direction and said "it's over there." Finally, I was pointed to a person who actually knew something about beer and was willing to help me and talk.
If you're looking for a large selection, this is a good option. If you need help finding what you're looking for, beware that many of the staff won't stop to help you. In the end, I was able to get what I wanted, and had a good haul from my vacation.

Avoid this place if you can. Terrible customer service and they wil try pass off old beer as fresh by putting house stickers over old bottle dates. Staff is rude and uneducated. I know there aren't a lot of beer stores in fort Myers, but this one is just awful.

Total Wine & More is where I have been getting mostly all of my brew. There is not a big selection of places to get craft beer in the Fort Myers area, this seems to be the standout.
As far as the store itself goes, the majority of their concentration is (as the title states) wine & liquor. They do however have a nice selection of craft beer available on shelf and in the fridge. They also have a nice selection of kegs including Sierra Nevada & Sam Adams.
Craft beer has basically two aisles, one section of bombers & 750mls alongside a section of 12oz singles. With the 12 oz singles, you can mix and match your own 6pack - they charge per beer. On the flip side aisle they also have standard six packs.
Breweries offered include:
Abita, Anchor, Avery, Bell's, Blue Point, Boulder, Breckenridge, Brooklyn, Cascade, Cigar City, DFH, Flying Dog, Full Sail, Great Divide, Highland, Jolly Pumpkin, Lagunitas, Left Hand, Magic Hat, North Coast, Ommegang, Oskar Blues, Rogue, Sam Adams, Shipyard, Sierra Nevada, Smuttynose, Southern Tier, Starr Hill, Stone, Terrapin, The Bruery, Victory, Weyerbacher.
There are more domestics + imports like Chimay, Samuel Smith, St Bernardus, etc...
Definitely worth checking out!!! Probably the best place in Fort Myers to get craft beer.

We swung by Total wine & More while vacationing in Fort Myers. Initially, I was wowed by the immense selection of wine and liquor, and eventually weaved my way back to the craft beer section. One side of the aisle was bombers and singles, with the other side sixpacks. There were selections from most of the regular brewers like Sam Adams, Left Hand, Victory, and Stone, with standouts like Oscar Blues, Brewdog and The Bruery. Lots of more local Florida breweries were available, all with 12oz singles. The Belgian and German selection was sizable as well. The pricing was very competitive, with many beers cheaper than they are in MI. If I would have driven down here, it would have been easy to load up the car. A must-stop if you're in the area.

Total Wine is what it is. A store with a pretty decent selection at pretty damn good prices that are pretty hard to beat. You are not going to find any hard to find rare offerings, but they do carry most of the basics from the big breweries and some of the smaller locals at very reasonable prices. Most of the employees working there no nothing about beer, but the store is always clean and the isles are typically well stocked. Overall, Total Wine is no where near the best store in town but it is easy and convenient especially if you know what you want going in to it. As mentioned, don't go in looking for stuff you have never seen before, but it is a nice place to stock up with the essentials.
On a side note, make sure to check the dates on the bottles (if applicable) because I have noticed some beers on the shelves that are past their "best by" date.
