Was in Orlando last week and sought it out because of the high marks; I was a bit skeptical but was pleasantly surprised when I started getting into the selection. They had a few I was glad to cross of my bucket list (although I was a bit disappointed in their Bruery choices). Overall I liked the place, a bit dingy, but the selection was good albeit a bit overpriced.

This review is for the Orange Blossom Trail location. There are at least 5-6 Knightly Spirits stores in Central Florida.
Very easy to find in a strip mall on OBT (Orange Blossom Trail). Once inside there is plenty of liquor, wine, malt beverages and beer to chose from.
The back wall has a glass cooler with doors that are well stocked with plenty of craft and macro beers and malt beverages, along with an open cooler along the right hand wall. Long rows of shelving units, 6 high, are filled with plenty of beers, many that you would be shocked to find in Florida! Prices are clearly marked on each shelf.
The staff has always been helpful and can/will answer whether or not they are getting some special beers in before your visit. Which is helpful if you are planning a vacation! Also, they have a well maintained facebook page with specials/deals posted frequently.
Prices are reasonable, compared to other liquor stores in the area, especially with the variety taken into account.

Did a beeline here after searching BA's excellent places list for good beer stores in Orlando.
Fairly easy to find in a strip mall near the junction of 417 and Orange Blossom Trail, which is a very busy surburban business district. Big bright red sign high up over the store.
Surprisingly small, maybe 75x50 feet inside at best, but the whole right third is beer, including coolers and lots of shelf space in two aisles. I got the impression the craft beer boom is straining their display space allocations. It was obvious that management puts a lot of effort into having a very wide selection of great brews on hand!
Most of the usual suspects, plus some I have not seen anywhere else. Bell's Expedition Stout and a couple of other Bell's were a surprise, since I have only seen this Michigan brewer's products in one other East Coast store.
Hoppin' Frog was also unexpected. They had a huge selection of the Ohio amphibian's bombers, including the two on the BA top 250 list. However, at $16 each the price was a bit over my current personally-set max for a 22 oz. bottle (I'll probably get over that eventually). In any event I concentrated on local brews I could not get up north.
Disappointed that there was no Cigar City, but there was a good selection of Georgia's Terrapin, which I really enjoyed, and a Florida Beer Co. IPA which kicked butt in the taste dept..
Nobody but the checkout clerk around to help, although he was pleasant. It was mid-Friday-evening, so the checkout line was a five to ten minute wait. Given the local clientele they are forced to deal with (the young guy ahead of me wanted to charge $3 of his $7 purchase with a credit card!) I have an inkling of what the help must have to go through every day.
Could easily have dropped $50-100 here, but I only had a few days to drink anything I bought. Nor did I have either the time or inclination to have anything shipped. And chances are I'll be back in Orlando in the not too distant future.

Finally got a chance to check out this main location of Knightly Spirits. When I walked in I was blown away at the huge selection they had, especially when compared to their other stores. Their beer selection at this location would take up the entire store at the Ocoee location I frequent. I spent an hour in there trying to figure out what I wanted to buy since I hadn't seen at least half of what they had anywhere else around here. Needless to say I dropped a pretty penny in there and can't wait to go back.

This is a great place to find craft beer. They're always getting new things every week so you can always come back and find something that wasn't there the week before. You can almost always find stuff that's already got a head start on aging, stuff that ages well of course.. They have a very large selection compared to most liquor stores of the same size. I can easily lose track of time just browsing their selection. I never leave empty handed. I would recommend this store to anyone in the area.

My experience with this place is different than just about everyone else who's reveiws I have read. I was pretty stoked to see this place on BA and since Orlando doesnt have a whole lot to offer in general, I wanted to stop by this place.
I walked in and was completely ignored by the two people behind the counter. I am not sure if they were talking to a rep or not (he was dressed like a tourist), but they didnt say boo when I walked in. I browsed the beers and they had a pretty decent selection. As mentioned, the Belgians and sours selection is top notch. However, I dont drink Belgians or sours. I saw no Cigar City and no other real gems.
After browsing for close to 15 minutes, I walked toward the front of the store to leave and was completely ignored again. The selection was great for the area, but the service was worse than a Total Wine. Also, I noticed a lot of bottles had dust on them which means they have been sitting on shelves for a while. And we are not talking Belgians that get better with age; they were standard, 5% abv beers with no expiry dates. Unless I was across the street, I wouldnt go back based on this visit.

Out of town on vacation looking for stuff I can't get in Chicago. Picked up some terrapin and CCB. Went to the checkout and asked if they had anything on hold. They had a CCB ghost stories but it had the owners name on it. They told me to hold on and called the owner to ask and be said it was ok to sell to me. Very good service!!! Good visit.

I got a chance to stop in here while I was in Orlando on vacation and was very impressed. The selection was great, especially when it came to the seasonal's. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They had one of the the best selections of any shop that I had been in. The selection of Belgian beers was particularly impressive. They also had a good assortment of the Bruery, Cigar City, and Jolly Pumpkin beers. The prices were quite reasonable. I would highly recommend stopping by if you're in the area.

I stopped in last week while on April vacation with the family. It's a smallish liquor store in a strip mall. Lots of great beers on the shelf, some in a cooler, some haphazardly stacked on the floor with no rhyme or reason. I found some nice Cigar City and Terrapin bottles to drink by the pool and to smuggle home. The guy in the beer isle told me to ask if I had any questions and then I never saw him again. Seemed a bit on the pricy side, but I did get a few 750's. If I end up in Orlando again, I'd stock up here.

In town on business and jonesin' for a good beer place. Hit Redlight Redlight (worth the stop), and was told that Knightly's was THE best bottle shop to venture out to. So away I went. I was pleasantly surprised on the lambic selection. Everyone save for Cantillon was represented, with excellent pricing to boot. For example, Giardin black label: $10. Tilquin gueze, 750mL: $20. That's better pricing than I get up north. There weren't a ton of American Wild's on, but Cascade and Jolly Pumpkin were represented, which is a great start! After the beligan/sour shelf there was about 1.5 times as many chilled beers, and then another half wall of room temp beers. All in all, it wasn't a huge beer place (only 25% of the store seemed to be dedicated to beer), but the quality and pricing was there. I wouldn't give it the 100% ranking, but it was definitely the best beer store I've seen in Florida... which isn't saying a ton. BUT, the selection here would rival most stores.
