Was in the Tallahassee area for a few days and went on the hunt for a solid craft beer spot. Well Proof proved to be that place and more. The atmosphere on a mid week night was very laid back as to be expected. This is a brew pub which also serves a solid selection of other offerings on tap as well as a nice selection of bottled beer. I tried their IPA and their Rye ale and both were top notch in my opinion. They have 3 dollar specials on pints every night from 5-7. There are two floors and they also have 32oz growlers to fill on the first floor. They also have a bottle shoop next door where one can fine great selections of beer, wine and fine liquours. Looking forward to visiting there again when in the area.

This place can be awesome but it can also get extremely crowded. The owner is a great person and when the crowd is right you can have a lot of fun. Also, they were pretty much the first brewery in town and deserve kudos for that.

All locations are outstanding. I have frequented this establishment since I came to Tallahassee for school in its early years, and I am still constantly impressed with every new change they have made.

At the Tennessee St brewpub/retail location, there is an upscale lounge/chill nightclub vibe to the place and they have glassware giveaways weekly, among other featured events. Upstairs is the retail store right next to the brewpub. The store has a plethora of beers for sale organized by region (for domestics), coupled with imports organized by style/country/ect. There is a vast selection of high quality spirits, wines, and even single beers and a bomber cooler as well.
The brewpub has full liquor/wine bars- upstairs and down, both with a very large selection of taps and outdoor patio areas with seating.

The brewery location at Rail Road Square (RRSQ) is a great location with outdoor seating, boccee ball courts, cornhole, ping pong, and also indoor seating where you can see the brewery through glass windows behind the bar.

I love both of these places, and I dont know if it's the Guru talking (their IPA) or what, but I just typed 1,151 characters talking about my favorite bar in town. Highly recommended if you're in Tallahassee

Definitely for the college kids. The bartenders seem to be kids like like to drink beer, not people that know beer. For being such a small operation, it definitely felt like they thought they were bigger and more well known than they actually are. The beers taste good! They had a decent selection of beers and a handful of guest taps. The outdoor seating area is kind of neat. It's artificial turf that is hot as hell, and a lot of parents and toddlers were running around aimlessly, but it looks good. The guy checking IDs at the front made it seem not like a brewery, but a bar on any strip in any college town. A lot of backwards hats, forearm sweatbands, and pens in ears. I would rather go to a random bar and try their beer on tap, because the vibe of the place is not my cup of tea.

Nice place. Only reason I rated it lower is because Im not impressed with Proofs beer which hurts their selection. Other than that, solid brewpub/brewery.
