Atmosphere:
Its a fairly large and clean store. The beer span two long isles not including the coolers.

Selection:
There are many rare beers here...MANY. I was actually quite surprised that I saw so many beers that I haven't even heard of before. That doesn't happen often. It is definitely one of those places in which a person should only go if they have money to spend, otherwise they'll just be tortured.
My biggest complaint is that it seems that they have a small selection for 12 oz. single bottles. Most of the rare beers they sell are all in the expensive bigger bottles such as bombers and 750mL.

Service:
The service is great, I love the people there. My first time there, I was able to strike up a long conversation with the two people working and they pointed me in many good directions. (804 characters)

If you could visit central Florida and can only make on beer stop, this is the place. This is the best we have, besides Total Wine. (131 characters)

Worth the short drive if you're staying in the Sea World area (and maybe beyond). Kind of a tight space, but they manage to pack a whole lot into the area. They seem to have stuff packed in every nook and cranny of the place, so make sure to take some time to poke around. Nice selection of import and domestic bombers as well as a better than average selection of cold micros. They allow any of the cold stuff to be sold as a single bottle as well, so you can mix and match to try a bunch of stuff. I was quite pleased that they had Crooked Stave.

I've tried a number of places around, and they all have had some nice selections. This place tops them all in the Sea World area. (685 characters)

I can see why this is one of the more highly regarded bottle shops in the Orlando area. The selection was above average and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable (I think the dude I talked to may have been the owner). I was on a tight time constraint when I went in and grabbed a couple nice things, but I think if I would have had more time (and money) to really go through everything with a fine tooth comb, I would have probably found even more gems. Recommended. (474 characters)

If you're going with family on a magical Disney adventure, then I recommend you stop in for provisions. You will need alcohol after hours in line and overpriced meals. I visited the location at Blossom Trail. Truth be told, I could have dropped a Disney amount of cash at this place. I guess it's a good they only offer baskets, rather than carts. The staff on hand was friendly enough. The beer selection is fantastic, but quite chaotic. Organization was not a strong point. I found boxes of Barrel Aged Bigfoot sitting in one aisle. I was happy to grab one, as this would have been a pain in the ass to obtain at home. That's really just one example, so my advice is to really scrounge around. There are many hidden treasures. Another nice feature is the ability to buy singles of just about everything. This made it easy to sample many of the local and regional options. The limited bombers from Cigar City are behind the counter. In conclusion, I would certainly recommend giving this liquor store your patronage. (1,017 characters)

this place has great selection. I would venture to say if it's sold in Florida they probably stock it. That being said they did not have anything mind boggling either. Which made me wonder with what they had and the amount in which they had it do they hold back the good stuff to regulars? The reason I think this is because from what their purchasing power appears to be you would think they get a lot of the limited releases too, yet there was really not any rare beers for sale. (482 characters)

HOLY GRAIL of liquor stores in Orlando. With a wider selection of goodies then Total Wine without talking allocation. Backers of the Campeador Series for Cigar City. (165 characters)

Not many places get the selection that these guys do. They buy the best. Each time I have been here, I always find something on my want list. The staff is helpful and the prices are in line with other local shops. I drive past at least 4 other bottle shops to go here. (273 characters)

I visited last week to stock up on IPAs for my weeklong stay in town. The store has a great selection of bombers as well as 6-packs, which you can break up. Belgians are well represented, as are American crafts. Most bombers are out on the shelves, while craft 6-packs can be found both on shelves and in the open cooler. I bought a bunch of cans of Ballast Point, Oskar Blues, SN Torpedo, Sixpoint, Bell's and Cigar City to take back with me on the plane, and got three mixed 6-packs of 12-ounce bottles (including Headhunter, Hoptimum, West Coast IPA, Double Simcoe, Hop Devil, Burton Baton and 2XIPA) for drinking during the week. Staff is very knowledgeable and not in-your-face. I will definitely be going back next time I'm in Orlando! (742 characters)

Great local bottle shop, always has rare finds even with most of the locals knowing about this gem. The owners / employees know exactly what you're asking for when searching for rare beers, while still catering to the masses as well. It's a bit of a hike from downtown, but perfect for those visiting the attractions as it's right off 417 from the airport. (356 characters)
