This is a very nice store; well lit, everything seems new and upscale. The beer is relatively well organized, about a third of it refrigerated. They have a few (four, if I recall correctly) taps on the wall by the cooler for growler fills and, better yet, so that you can have a pint while browsing their selection. I had a Swamp Head Blackwater while shopping and it definitely enhanced the experience.

I live only an hour away, but there was still a decent selection of things that I would not expect to find at home. Prices were reasonable, but not cheap. Overall, a very nice store, definitely worth checking out if you are in Gainesville.

Very cool bottle shop. They stock all the stuff they can get and will order it if they can get it. You can drink while you shop and some days they have food trucks. They are a little pricier than the other shops in town because of the location. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable.

They get all the good stuff, but its also the first place in town to sell out. If you're not watching facebook for the updates, you're probably not getting any of it. Also, everything in the store is $2 more expensive than anywhere else. Shopping here gets expensive fast.

Top Notch, super friendly liquor store.
Sit outside and drink your beer.
Wooden shelves, racks, floors and counter tops.
Super classy and open to everyone.
Embedded in UF, hidden away in a brand-new suburban plaza ghost town, away from the college clutter.

Definitely the "all-around" best place in Gainesville to get Craft Beer. It's on the far west side of town so for some people it's a bit of a trek to get to, but well worth it. Being that it is located on the far west side of town, you avoid the vagrants and panhandlers that you encounter at Gator Beverage.

Great selection of beer (and wine from what I hear - I don't drink the stuff). Staff is friendly and helpful most of the time, and I'm sure they deal with enough goobers that think they know something about beer (and want to tell everyone about it - Experienced this in my last visit), that when they aren't being totally friendly it's probably not because the employees are jerks. Dealing with, "know it all," types can get old. I'd venture to say that if I had to deal with that on a daily basis I probably wouldn't be super friendly all the time either.

Only complaint I have is their impulsive need to post every new arrival on their Facebook page. It's great to let your clientele know about new/limited offerings that have shown up, but making it known to anyone who looks at their Facebook page puts most of those selections out of reach for people with regular "9 to 5's". I was told by an employee that I could call and put one on hold by credit card, but when I attempted to do so the line rang busy, and when I finally got through they were "sold out." This was only 30 minutes after their original post.

Otherwise, Tipples is great.
