I've stopped into 67 Wine & Spirits a couple times in search of rare beers. This place is more of a liquor store but has a respectable craft beer selection. The atmosphere isn't inviting - the checkout counter looks like something out of an alcoholic's version of Hoarders - piled with bottles, display paraphernalia, signage, and little junk items to purchase. Behind the counter is equally messy - rare and expensive bottles fighting for display space. It seems like certain items are prominently displayed just to show off their astronomical price tags, as if stocking expensive items is an indication of the store's worth as a business. Standard, regularly available bottles seem to be overprices as well - a normally $30 bottle of Voodoo Tiki blanco tequila was marked up over 250%. Beer bottles are well stocked but noticeably higher than Total Wine. The one thing that bothers me most about this place, though, is the overbearing staff. As a craft beer geek, I like to browse, read bottle labels, check prices and maybe text a friend or two to compare notes or ask about prices/availability elsewhere. But that's virtually impossible here - a man will usually check in on me every other minute, asking all sorts of questions and pestering me instead of letting me browse. Last time I stopped in, I was extremely annoyed by what was borderline harassment. JUST LET ME BROWSE.
I really don't see any reason to shop here other than the off chance that they've stocked a limited or rare bottle of craft beer. And even then I'd have to really hold my nose while making a purchase.

Suprised no one has given a review of this place. Searched for a place to get good beers while on vacation in Boca Raton. Selection was great. Southern Tier, Dogfish,Lagunitas just to name a few. Nice Belgian selection also. Worker was able to answer questions and was very knowledgeable. Definately would recommend this beer store to anyone. I got a 22oz bottle of Hop Stoopid. Limited cooler space but they pack 6 packs front to back so there is a lot more beer in the cooler than appears. It is worth the drive.
