Stopped by here during a recent trip to Tallahassee, a nice addition to a solid store next door.

Atmosphere is OK. It's basically inside a liquor store (the walls of the bar don't go up to the roof so you can hear what's going on in the liquor store and vice versa) so there's only so much that can be done. A dimly lit place with an industrial feel. There are three TV's, two above the bar and a large projection against the wall directly in front of the entrance. The bar has room for about eight people and there's a good deal of tables and other space that I'd imagine gets filled out on weekends. A chalkboard holds all the draft beers available and there's a good amount of beer paraphernalia scattered around the place.

Quality is good. My CCB beer was served in a logo-ed glass and I saw a good deal of other glassware available as well. The beer was served at a good temperature with the proper amount of head.

Service was good. I didn't have to wait long to get a drink and I enjoyed his berating of Urban Meyer (FSU v. UF) as a UGA fan. He had a good idea of what was on-tap but I did hear him make some iffy comments (CCB Humidor Jai Alai "uses different hops or something"). That said it's a college town and one in the South at that.

Selection was very solid. They'd just finished a CCB takeover and still had about six of their beers available along with a Swamphead beer, some Terrapin, Sweetwater, and Belgian seasonals. The more common styles were represented and there were about 30 different taps.

Value is good. I was a bit surprised by the relatively high price of "Or" from CCB which was $8 but all other selections seemed reasonable.

Overall I still haven't been to Leon's but I'm not sure I ever will considering I can stop in here for a very good selection and head next door for beers that escape GA distribution. Certainly worth a stop if you're in the area as it's likely the best bar within a 100 mile radius.

Great beers, okay bar atmosphere (I happened to go during an FSU game night), but the icing on the cake is the store next to it. Great selection of brews and other liquors. They had just about all the Belgian abbey ales I'd been looking for at reasonable prices.

The bartenders were courteous and helpful. The bar itself was very plain...just one big open room. But the couches in the corner were comfy. We just recently got a BJ's Restaurant and Brewhouse locally and Proof Brewing Co's in house brews were far better.

I'll definitely be coming back...just not on a game night. ;)

I like Proof alot and would probably go there more if it wasn't for the douche college crowds it attracts. Best beer selection in town and I like to go early to avoid the big crowds. The place to go for glassware giveaways and rare and hard to find beers in bottle and tap.

Great place to go drink. Besides the always awesome tap selection, and the fact that they host special release events, glassgiveaways (weekly), and rare beers in cask and keg, they brewing spectacular beer. Was there opening night (both of them), and most beer releases. Havent tried one yet I honestly wouldn't rate at least a 4. Highly recommend checking this place out.

All of there brews are usually 3 bucks. most others run 4-6 a pint.

I was so pleasantly surprised when I entered this bottle shop/brew pub. The staff were ultra attentive and helpful, and they knew their beer. For sure. Their selection is quite impressive, but not overwhelming at all. They have everything separated by brewery or style, which is quite nice. They also offer the mix and match six packs with lots of different singles to choose from. On the pub side of the building, the atmosphere is great, selection superb, and the staff was also friendly there. I will absolutely be heading back to visit this place for one of their many events.

Proof is a great little bar tucked away in a mess of FSU's college bar scene. Brewery on site, that knocks out some superb brews, esp their Rye. Liquor store attached that sells almost zero macro, and a medium sized craft selection, but the selection is well varied. I frequent here several times a week. If you're not of college age, don't worry. The college crowd doesn't show up until pretty late (9ish); so you easily find a seat and a bartender to chat beer with. Most of the staff is knowledgeable about most beer styles, and they certainly know the beers brewed in house.

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.
