Stopped by here immediately after being picked up from the airport. It is in a strip mall and almost looks like a grocery store based on its size. Beer is in the back on the left. There was a nice selection of 12 oz singles. It had a good selection of bombers and Belgians in 750s. The organization is a little odd. I felt like I kept stumbling across things that should have been other places. Unfortunately, there wasn't a lot of beer in coolers. For someone visiting that isn't from the South there were quite a few regional selections and East Coast beers that I was happy to find. The prices were reasonable. I expected it to be higher because it seems everything is more expensive on the coasts. It was a worthwhile place to visit so I could have some bottles to drink when I wasn't going out at night.

The best beer store in Fort Lauderdale, period. Obviously they also have a huge selection of wine and spirits, but they have pretty much the largest and most extensive beer selection in the area. They also have the best prices and the staff is very helpful. This is also my go-to store for buying craft beer. I am lucky to live around the corner from here...

After having dinner at the Mexican restaurant a couple doors down, we wanted to pick up some beers to take back to the hotel room while we lounged at the rooftop pool or on our hotel balcony. Unfortunatley, this is about the only place anywhere near our hotel that had any decent selection. I must admit, the selection at Total Wine is always pretty good. The service is always pretty bad, and the beer freshness is usually pretty bad. I was disappointed that there wasnt more local stuff. I found about 4 beers from Cigar City but that was about it as far as Florida beers go. We picked up sixers of Jai Alai and Coconut Porter from Kona. Both beers seemed fresh and tasted pretty damn good. Since this is the only place in the general area, this is pretty much your only option for decent beer :(

This is a rather typical decent Total Wine. A god selection of Cigar City coupled with plenty of national brands like Stone and a good import mix. Singles, sixers and cases are all available. I was looking for a beer for the room so I headed for the cooler, which had a nice selection of Clown Shoes beers, for whatever reason. I picked up a nice RIS and headed back to my hotel.

When I am traveling, I am typically hoping to find some nice bottles to check in my luggage or ship home. Having been to this TW last spring, and finding the beer scene here to be improving but with a long way to go, I did not expect to find anything that wowed me (we get CCB at home or I'd have grabbed some) and I was not disappointed.

Not worth going out of your way for but if you need a beer in FLL, you will find something to your liking here.

This is my go-to beer store. The beer selection is all the way in the back. They have a really good selection (as good of a variety that you'll find in South Florida). They seem to get all of the Cigar City seasonal releases which makes me happy. The prices are very reasonable. Every so often I will come across expired beers, but that isn't necessarily Total Wine's fault. Many west coast beers, especially Stone, seem to be expired all throughout Florida. Overall, the best beer store in my area.

was last here back in August...picked up 3 beers gifts for myself to enjoy in the coming days. one of them, upon cracking open, was completely flat and had lost all carbonation. i called back to ask about the possibility of exchanging it, and i got an attitude from management. they must have assumed i tasted and didn't like the brew, and wanted to get money back or try something else. that being said, the one taste of this totally flattened stout that i sipped was actually better than a macro on a good day so it definitely wasn't that.

anyway, when you spend $12 for a bottle of beer you want it to be in good drinkable condition just saying...

aside from that, i've been to this store many times in the past years. recently, the selection seems to have diminished somewhat but its still a good source of more crafty labels if you're in the area. prices are fair for the quality stuff.

all things considered, the boca raton location is nicer, more space, and more selection. if you're located in between the two, as i am....head north to boca.
