Like many homebrewing BA's I came upon Knightly during my sojurn to the 2006 AHA NHC in Orlando. Of course, I'm disappointed that I didn't know about this joint before since this is my hometown!

Clean bright liquor store setup with a ton of shelves packed into a relatively tiny place.

Several rows of shelves thoughtfully organized by country and style and bottle type with an abundance of goodies. Enough stuff here to make even the most jaded beerophile think they've come to a candy store!

Definately worth the visit and the hunt to find it!

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.

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!

Owner was very nice an knowledgeable. Great "Florida local" selection as well as diverse International beers/styles. Don't be misled by small strip mall location!

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.

I was here about a year ago when I was in Florida.

A: It's a beer store. Nothing fancy, just a bunch of finely packed in beers with all of the six-pack stuff in either door fridges or open-air ones.

Q: They had a big selection of very quality brews from all over the world. Not the most fancy store, but they had some rare stuff.

S: I'm of the mind of only wanting help when I ask for it. When I got to the counter to pay, I had a few questions and asked about some beers, but this was mostly because I was from out-of-state and was wondering about a few things that I didn't see myself there.

S: Excellent selection, especially compared to the ABC stores, Total Wine and Whole Foods that I visited while also down there on vacation. It was the only time I've seen Xyauyu bottle anywhere for God's sake.

V: I don't really have much to compare them with due to it being the only independent bottle shop that I had visited. The prices seemed similar to MD, but I hear we are a pretty expensive state for alcohol, so that might not be good for them. I can say that some of the bombers seemed quite expensive, like the Hoppin' Frog stuff, but I hear that is always expensive.

These guys are awesome! Nice large refrigerated case and a huge selection of belgians. If you want to get the Cigar City seasonals/special releases you often have to get them as they are coming of the truck because they go fast.

I visited the Knightly Spirits Of Williamsburg today while on a work trip to orlando. I was excited to find fresh Jai Alai, and some nice Terrapin beers! I was not so excited about the guy working the counter. He seemed to have a chip on his shoulder and got upset when I asked simple questions about the freshness of a beer or even to get an itemized receipt. Maybe he was just having a bad day but it made for an awkward moment as I payed for my beer. Will look forward to driving to the main store later this week and will update! Cheers!

Nice big store, with two full aisles of beer. They had all the standards and plenty of goodies for the serious beer geeks. I had to set a limit for myself to only what I could physically carry in my hands so I wouldn't spend too much. They carry everything from pales, to sours, to stouts, and everything in between.

Place had a decent selection, but could use a well needed expansion. There were a lot of beers from Cigar City which is great, but prices were a little high for the quality of beer you are getting. You can get better beer at a cheaper price up North. The service at the shop was great and I couldn't ask for more in that regard. Expand the beer selection and this place will earn a higher mark in my book.

Stopped by right from the airport on our trip to Orlando/Kissimmee. Huge selection of belgians, Mikkeller, some Jester King, Grassroots, all of the current Cigar City cans. Guy working there was really cool, nice recommendations on beers and cigar stores to try while in the area.
