J's wine and Spirits is growing.

Definatly in the craft beer selection. I have personally seen to expanding for the demand and have alot of knowledge to be shared, not only in the craft beer selection but in all your wine and spirit needs.

As has been said, good for the area. what is really nice is that though the selection isn't great, they let you order anything they can get. So, being just 30 minutes from Tallahassee, I can go get things that are distributed in Georgia and not Florida. They ordered me some Duck-Rabbit, and had quite a few more they could order. They even let me look through their book of available beers. There was some pretty impressive stuff in there that I can't get across the state line. The staff didn't have any beer knowledge to speak of, but very helpful and friendly.

This is not a beer mecca by any means but it does have a good selection for the area. Sweetwater, DFH, Flying Dog, Thomas Creek, Oskar Blues, Stone, and New Belgium. Prices are reasonable. Might want to check freshness as this is a small town and I am not sure that this stuff flies off the shelves. Sweetwater probably will be fairly fresh as many people do enjoy these beers. The people that work there have been very nice in ordering beers before so it doesn't hurt to ask. Good store for the area.

This is my go-to place when visiting the lady friend's family in South Georgia.

Quality is good - beer is toward the back of the store away from most light - although I have occasionally gotten a few beers that are older than their "best by" dates.

Service is good. I've never asked for help regarding the beer selection, but everyone in there is generally pretty friendly.

Selection is good for it's location. This is the reason I requested the addition. It's certainly not on par with better beer stores in bigger markets, but for what it is it's not bad. DFH, Terrapin, Sweetwater, Thomas Creek and other micros along with bigger imports such as Boddington's, Fuller's, and Harp are available here.

This isn't a "beer destination", but if you're in the area and in need of good beer, it's certainly worth looking into.
