My first business conference ever, and I celebrated on Day 1 with a well-researched trip to Knightly Spirits Metrowest. Solan from RB works there, as I soon found out. Very helpful in pointing out some of the better beers in the place. I've never been in a joint that had more than my budget could bear, until this place. $20 bottles of Italian beer were calling to me, but I had other plans. I grabbed a number of stubby Belgian singles, any Cigar City they had, some High and Mighty found only in this state outside of its home region of MA. What else here? Thomas Hooker, Otter Creek, a bottle of Verdi I.S (cool bottle, spicy brew). I wish I had driven my car and had like $500 to spend.

I had to turn my back on so many good brews, I can only hope I get to come back to the conference next year and visit this place again.

Recommended.

Stopped in on way back from Disney. Really big selection of brews I can't get at home, so was able to grab a few nice brews by Cigar City, Funky Buddha, Dogfish and Sixpoint. Service was friendly and helpful. Biggest plus is that you can buy singles of anything. The only negative really is that there were some very old brews throughout, like 6-8 month old IPAs front and center in the cooler, had to check dates on everything.

Really nice selection of craft beers in smaller format and bombers. Staff was very helpful when I went in. Was looking for a specific bottle. They didn't have it in stock but offered to call to their other locations for me, more than a lot of places would typically do.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Orange Blossom Trail in Orlando. Visited on vacation. Friendly staff and decent selection. Would visit again when in town.

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.
