I stopped in while in town on business to check out the selection. They have a nice atmosphere though the beer is isolated well in the back. I was pleased to see two each from Crooked Stave and Drie Fonteinen. They also had several from Cigar City though unfortunately not as singles. The selection as a whole is solid though limited in numbers. It's well worth a visit if you're in the area.

The Tallahassee beer scene is improving, but it still has a long way to go. This is one of the Top 3 bottle shops in town. But that's not really saying much. Most of their stock is routine stuff widely available. That's not their fault.... Like the other shops in town, these guys are limited by what they can get from their distributors. Nothing they can do about it. So this is not a place to go way out of your way for. That said, I have usually been able to find some good Cigar City selections when I've visited.

Been a long time customer, this place has changed significantly over the few years it has been open. Clean, upscale atmosphere to the store. Staff members are friendly and knowledgeable about selection, and craft brews in general. Selection is the best in town, and is great though not earth shattering. Breweries organized by west to east coast, good selection of singles, make your own 4/6 packs, etc. If Tallahassee gets distribution, this place carries it at some point. Some stock rotates, other brews are staples and can consistently be found. Never had an issue with freshness, and its always nice to have a shop attached to a bar with 50 taps where you can try something and purchase it next door.

NOTE: its now called the bottle shop, not Liquor Loft.

Atmosphere: easy to navigate, clean, and organized. A very inviting booz store to say the least.

Quality: only the best here. this palce really kicks up a extra shelf to quality, and to conserve on space they do only have the best of the best of cheap, medium, and premium liquors (and a GREAT selection of Burbon.

Their beer stores are paralleled to none. it is the ultimate stop for a whiskey or beer lover.

Service: where the Bottle Shop Really Shines. their staff are all knowledgeable on beer and liq our, and will talk about it at length and help you make the best choice. Best staff workers in town for a booz store.

Selection: Best beer selection in town, but can be quite limited for everything else due to their small size for stocking booz.
If you shopping for beer head here, if your looking for a cheaper off brand for a party Id recommend ABC

Food: N/A

Value: Reasonable. they have a upcharge on certain things, but you find good deals here and their, and for beer, their the best in town.

their value card system will get you 5% back on all your purchases, which helps lower costs some, and their great service and atmosphere help offshoot its prices

Overall: one of the best in town. It has absolute advantage in the beer department, but ABC has the comparative advantage of slightly lower prices, if they do have crummier service.

Come here and you will get the best of what you where looking for, thats all I can say about it.

Atmosphere - I was in a hurry and wish I could have spent a bit more time in the store, but it was inviting and I had no trouble finding the stacked section of beer; the only knock would be the limited parking space

Quality - I didn't check every single bottle of beer, but those that I picked up were fresh; up to date seasonals

Service - I was asked several times if I needed help or assistance with making a selection or finding what I wanted/needed and when I checked out I was asked if I found what I was looking for and given a rewards card that was hassle free with just a quick scan no bunch of paper work mess

Selection - The best I have seen in Tallahassee; they carry beer that is not offered at any other location and allow you to build your own six pack

Wow, what a gem!!! Great find nestled in florida state university. A liquor/beer store attached to a bar! Built in awesomeness!

Selection is the best in the area. They carry over 600 brews at any given time and up to almost 900 depending on season.

Beer board is constantly updated and the waitstaff if very knowledgable not to mention extremely helpful.

Being able to sample a new brew in one side and purchase either a single or multiples makes this place one of my favorites.

Supposedly a very busy place but i was lucky enough to be gere right after finals.

Add this to your list if you are anywhere near and appreciate great beer.

This is sort of a liquor loft/proof review. Liquor loft has the most varied beer selection in all of Florida. They have everything from dogfish head to belgian trappist ales. Their prices are very reasonable and it is the only place in Tallahassee that I ever bought beer from. Proof, the bar attached to liquor loft, is just as amazing. They always have amazing and rare beers on tap. The prices are very reasonable as well. My only complaint is that the bar is too small and it is always crowded. I graduated from FSU in 2009 and have not been back since, but Liquor loft/proof is where it's at!!!

Liqour Loft has a great election, especially for a small college town. The beer selection is located in the back of the store. There is a big wall of singles on one side and a large wall of coolers on the other side loaded with six packs.

Most of the great craft breweries available in the state of FL are available here including Cigar City, Southern Tier, Bell's, Stone, Brooklyn, Great Divide, Lagunitas, Dogfish Head and a ton of other great breweries.

The staff was extremely helpful and friendly and didn't just stand behind the register like many other places. My only regret is that I didn't get to check out Proof which is a bar that is literally connected to the Liqour Loft. I will definitely stop in next time.

Overall, if you're in Tallahasse this is a must stop location for craft beer. Recommended!

I am honestly glad I stopped here on my way home from Orlando. I cannot stress to you how awesome this place is.

Atmosphere: The place is small but adequate for the product they have. I'm pretty sure they had wine and liquor but honestly didn't check as I was only interested in the beer which was around the corner.

Quality: GREAT selection. If it is available in Florida these guys do their damndest to get it in. I saw Southern Tier, Terrapin, Victory, Magic Hat and all sorts of other beers.

Service: These guys were amazing. The two employees that were there were very engaging and extremely knowledgeable about the product. Even made great recommendations. I left to eat lunch next door and came back to take pictures for my blog and they ended up calling Byron who came down to the store. Very cool!

Selection: As I said earlier, EXCELLENT. Perhaps worth skipping anything in the Panhandle to make a trip over here. They showed me the bar next door, Proof and oh my God it was awesome. About 25 beers on tap and they were great. I even saw some Swamp Head beer which is new to the area.

I stopped in on July 4 and quickly met the proprietor, Byron. What a great guy. Extremely helpful and knowledgeable, he was eager to assist me. The other gentleman that was working (sorry dude, I don't remember your name) was also very helpful. I really liked the selection and the great customer service. The only downside was that their taproom wasn't open yet when I went and I couldn't hang around until it did. But that little snafu was made up for by the fantastic customer service I got.

Its a small place, but has a very nice selection and the prices are very reasonable, right in line with what I expected.

The parking lot is a bit small, but that is nitpicking. This is a great store run by great folks. If you're in the area, don't pass it by. Make sure to stop in.
