While staying at a local resort for vacation, I visited this place that is as close as a warehouse-club-style store for alcohol as I can imagine. Although the cavernous store is certainly more focused on wine and liquor, the selection of beer in the back two aisles is substantial as well. I sneaked in just before closing, so the staff that was there seemed more interested in getting ready to lock up than in offering any help, but I was focused on what I was looking for and didn't need much assistance.
The beers appeared to be separated by origin and then further organized somewhat alphabetically by brewer, so it wasn't too hard to track down my targets. Aside from the decent selection of Florida beers, there seemed to be quite a wide and varied assortment of other regional and nationally-distributed craft. With the size of the store and the breadth of the selection, I would not be surprised if freshness was an issue, so I was careful to check for dates where I could. Overall, though, such precautions are a small price to pay for the great variety that was available.

I lived right around the corner from this Total Wine while living in Miami. The beer selection is fantastic. Kept in the very back of the store away from sunlight, there is an entire row of six-packs, and an entire row of singles/750mLs/Bombers. Singles can be pieced into a mix-six. Pricing was pretty reasonable. I never recall seeing a particular beer marked up due do rarity or limit. Both Cantillon and Fantome made appearances from time to time. They always had the usual suspects from The Bruery.
Overall a nice store with a great beer selection and friendly staff.

Off of Route 1 on the outskirts of Miami proper, this TW is easily accessible to anyone looking for quality brews.
It's a liquor store first and foremost like all TWs, but it does have a substantial craft beer section, which is what immediately drew me in. It's categorized by country, making things easy enough to identify. Quality is great, all the bottles I checked were within the proper dates. Selection is great as well, with many quality breweries being represented like Bell's, Rogue, Stone, St Bernardus and many more. There was even glassware for sale from DFH and Stone, which meant I had to snap up a few.
The employees were nice and friendly, didn't get to ask much about the craft brews though. Pricing is very reasonable and very fair, they don't overcharge and in fact, some of the sales were absolute steals.
A very good, very quality store. I'm just wishing that we had this chain up in the northeast, as I would definitely be a regular patron.

Quality - Only got a good since often I found empty shelves and you do have to check the dates of the bottle (especially in the singles section) or you could end up with a bottle past its prime.
Service - I've never had a problem but then again they aren't usually tripping all over themselves to help you either.
Selection - Honestly this might be all the beer available in Miami. The craft selection isn't exactly impressive. This place is Macro heaven, especially if you're looking for your favorite South American lager. Still when I want to buy beer in Miami this is where I go. I don't think you'll find a more complete selection in one place.

Am I the only one who is not that impressed by this place?
Quality - strong beers, you're fine. Lower ABV beers, check the dates, because they may have sat on that shelf far longer than you would like.
Service - They seem to know what they are doing here; the service is competent.
Selection - for a store of this size, I'm not impressed. There's absolutely nothing here I can't get at the much smaller liquor stores closer to me, and nothing all that unusual outside of an Allagash Curieux that caught my eye.
Value - Prices are competitive with other stores in the area, perhaps slightly lower, no complaints here.
