This place loses points because I was looking for a particular Cigar City beer and that day they didn't seem to have any. Other than that, it was a good store with a good selection of singles. Service was virtually non-exsistent, and layout was of a big box liquor store. If I lived in the area I would probably stop here often and as a tourist it would be ok as for a broad purchase of breweries. The quality of beers they did have was good... but Cigar City is currently where its at in Florida... (499 characters)

Have done a great job of broadening their craft beer selection. Have a staff that has very good beer knowledge. Have worked hard at bringing in a wide variety of offerings at reasonable prices. I can spend an hour or two on a Saturday afternoon just browsing the beers. They have done a great job in elevating the variety over the past few years. (346 characters)

Well, I was down visiting the folks, and decided to stop in for a gander. I was first taken back by how empty the shelves were. Quite a few products were out of stock. They did, however, have some nice choices, but nothing I couldn't get up in the Tampa area.

The service was almost non-existant. After about a half hour of looking, I finally had to find someone to get a six pack broken up into singles.

I ended up leaving with a mix pack contaning some Heavy Seas loose cannon, Gordon, Old Rasputin, and Two Hearted. I did find about two cases of 08 Bigfoot, but I only purchased a sixer. All and all I guess it is worth the trip if you live around the area, I would not go out of my way to get there though.

Re-review

Tw Naples has turned a huge corner. Shelves are always filled and you can always find the freshest ccb. They always get more one offs then the fort Myers store, and the staff there is waaaayyyy more helpful. Good thing I work right around the corner, I visit this place at least me a week. (1,016 characters)

Since moving to Florida, it is hard to find any retail establishments with quality craft beer for sale for a decent price. Total Wine is about the only option in most towns, which is a sad state of affairs. They always have the best selection and the best price, but the quality is always suspect. Anytime I go to a Total Wine, I HAVE to check the bottling or "best by" dates on the beers becuase they are notorious for having old stock. This store was no different. I noticed a lot of old beers, some over one year old. I like the selection, but I am not going to buy a Clownshoes Eagle Claw Fist that was bottled in Jan 2012 (today is November 14, 2012) no matter how cheap ($4.99). Some of the other Clownshoes beers were bottled in 8/11! I only pick on them because they are "Brewery Direct" and have their bottling dates prominently placed on all bottles, which I LOVE. And as always, service is only provided if you hunt someone down. I would love to try some other beers, but if there is not a bottled on date, I stay far away from that particular beers. They have great selection, but be careful what you buy! (1,117 characters)

Was down from MA visiting friends in Naples when I walked in to this store. All I can say is WOW! I was hooked from the minute I walked in the store, and I wasn't even in the beer aisle yet! Once I got to the beer section, I was like a kid in a toy store, just staring at everything with my mouth wide open.

I think they had a great mix between basic craft beers, hard to find beers and European beers. The mix and match six pack option, and the number of singles available for that, was huge. Prices were fantastic, but that's because here in MA, I think everything is taxed ten times over.

I was looking for something I could not get in MA and wound up with a Summit Variety 12 pack and some Bell's Two Hearted Ale.

All I want to know now, is when can we get a Total Wine here in MA? Pretty please? (804 characters)

Long story short - I stopped in to this Total Wine last night after a dinner date with my girlfriend. I usually go to the Total Wine in Fort Myers, so just wanted to see the difference in selection & man was it!

They had everything that the Fort Myers location has & then some. They had quite a few offerings from CCB & Terrapin as opposed to the Fort Myers location. Also had some really nice imports that Fort Myers doesnt have & I picked up a Whale Tale Pale Ale from Cisco, never seen any Cisco offerings anywhere else in SW Florida.

Definitely worth a stop by, I will be making the 40 min commute probably once a month to stock up on stuff! Exciting to see their selection. (681 characters)

So I was holed up in Naples for a work funciton and decided to hail a cab and check this place out. I was hoping to grab some good east coast beers but was slightly disappointed. They only had CCB Big Sound Scotch Ale and nothing else. Good selection overall but nothing out of the ordinary. HUGE wine selection. Staff was friendly but really weren't asking if I needed any help or not. Decent enough to stop in and check it out but I was looking for that great score and came up empty handed. Great selection of singles. Took me a couple minutes to figure out how they had everything organized. (595 characters)

I love this place. I go hear at least twice a week, it's kind of my night before my day off ritual. great selection and reasonable prices plus, heaven forbid, if you aren't in the mood for beer, they have excellent selections of everything else. I love the fact that their beer selection easily is the best in the whole town, still not saying much (though i went to whole foods the other day and they had a pretty decent selection) for Naples. plus with a knowledgeable and friendly staff, occasional beer classes, and even a few hotties on the registers it's a pretty nice place to get some brews. Now if only they had some form of home brew services. (652 characters)

I swear I think I have been to every damn total wine on the east coast. You know it is the one place good or bad as it may be, that you can find a decent selection of beer. In this regard Florida total wine stores just always kill it. Amazing selection and damn good prices. At least a 150 bottles to make mixed six packs out of which is just great. Nearly everything you can find in the state and then some. A worth while stop for sure and in the naples area, hands down the best selection you are gonna find anywhere. (519 characters)

Aptly named, this is a big ole warehouse with tons of wine, liquor and beer. Upon entering, I saw a big display of Sam Adams Imperial Pilsner, Winter Ale and Sierra Celebration all reasonably priced.

The beer section is on the far right side of the store. Craft singles, bombers and Belgians can be found at the front portion. I excitedly picked up 2 750mLs from Saint Somewhere plus Avery's Samael & Mephistopheles', which I cannot get in GA. Most of the singles that I saw where pretty old...Bell's beer mainly.

Further down the aisle are where all of the 4/6 packs are. I picked up a sixer of Two Hearted Ale, born on 09/16/08. I sadly passed on Bell's Java Stout and Double Cream Stout, which were bottled early February 2008.

Full line of Sierra, Avery, Sam Adams, Terrapin, Weyerbacher, Dogfish Head, Penn, with Stone Ruination/Arrogant Bastard in 6packs.

Didn't really need any service, but 2 folks did greet me and ask if I needed anything. I DID butt in on a conversation between 2 employees talking about the location of Arrogant Bastard bombers. So I pointed them in the right direction...I do what I can. I also helped a senior load 2 cases of Penn N/A cans into his cart because "his shingles got the best of me today."

The verdict? Buyer beware at the TW in Naples. This town seems to be a beer wasteland, but there are some gems to be found. (1,363 characters)

Given the paucity of choices in the Naples area, Total Wine is one of the best options if you want to see the majority of products available in the area, at sane prices.

They had a nice representation of beers - many favorites from the Midwest (Bell's 2 Hearted, Oberon, etc. as well as Mid-Atlandtic beers such as Stoudt's and even Brookly beers).

Service is average and normal for warehouse places like this.

Prices are very reasonable as well. Too many places in Naples are overpriced due to the affluent zip codes here.

Many places sell beer & wine only, so an "all in one" place of this size is overdue. (612 characters)
