Living only less than a mile from this place is like beer heaven, the owner stocks many different selections and this is the only place I shop for my beer. The place on the outside just looks like your normal store but once inside you will find all types of treasures, treasures that have been there for quite some time. I think his main business is Liquor and lotto because all the imported brews have dust on them and are on the top shelf which maybe why they dont sell. Needless to say that this place is amazing and at times the owner will have Trappist Westvleteren, stop by and you will be surprised to what you find.

From the outside this place appears to be like a hundred other liquor stores in SE Florida. On the inside it's a lot like those stores as well until you turn down the cramped far aisle. For the area this place has a great selection. I'd say 150-200 different bottles crammed into the small space. Lots of nice imports some German stuff I haven't seen before. The Belgian selection was descent, well great for the area, but damn can we get the 750's off the top shelf?? Those bottles have to be 6 inches from the lights. I was expecting some dust from the other reviews, but a sixer of Oberon I got was covered. With a little upkeep and some rearranging this place could be topnotch. I think I'll make it my local beer store even though most bottles are priced a little higher then the local Mega Stores. Hopefully some increased turn around will help this place live up to it's potential.

have visited this store several times over the last 2 years or so, the most recent being yesterday. Store is a quick-stop beer/liquor store, looking very unimposing on the outside, but inside you find he has at least 200 different bottled and craft brew products, including a decent selection of german british, american, and belgian beers (mainly 750ml's), as well as beers from other countries, including central america/carribean and eastern europe as well as a very extensive (non-scotch) liquor selection. That said, the vast majority of this constantly-busy store's business is in non-premium products - I have never once seen someone buying a micro or import while I was in the store.
Based on certain bottles being in the store for months or in 2 cases even years, I am under the impression the sell-through on the premium beers may be quite slow. The store is well-lit by flourescent bulbs, and that combined with the possibility that any bottle on the top shelf has been under such lighting for months makes me very cautious with the types of beers I buy from this store and their shelf location. The belgian 750ml's, unfortunately, are all top-shelf items. I don't know how long green glass yellowbeer needs under flourescent lighting to start causing problems. There is a nice coat of dust on many of these top-shelf bottles.
I have had very few dealing with the store owner (who wasn't there yesterday).
store also has coolers with macros as well as singles of some of the import/micros available. They advertise kegs but not sure if that is on-premises or special-order.
Worth a stop - the address aside, this is actually on military trail just north of lantana on the east side of street.
