Bottle Caps is an outstanding new beer store that just opened two months ago. The shop is located right beside McK's Tavern and offers about 85-100 craft beers, many of which you cannot purchase elsewhere in Daytona Beach. I was blown away by the quality and freshness of the products (most of them, anyway) and received friendly, attentive service from an older man with a military-style brush cut. He didn't really know too much about the beers but his kindness made up for his lack of expertise.

I grabbed the following beers: Oskar Blues Dale's Pale Ale, Southampton Altbier, Narragansett Lager, Terrapin Hop Karma Brown IPA, Abita Jockamo IPA, Terrapin Moo-Hoo Chocolate Milk Stout, Samuel Adams Latitude 48 IPA, Bell's Kalamazoo Stout, Lost Coast Indica IPA, Anchor Porter, Cigar City Maduro Oatmeal Brown Ale, Cigar City José Martí India Porter, Oskar Blues Gubna Imperial IPA, Stone Sublimely Self Righteous Ale, Hoppin' Frog BORIS The Crusher, Chouffe Houblon Dobbelen IPA Tripel, Terrapin Side Project Capt'N Krunkles Black IPA, Cigar City Humidor Series Jai Alai Cedar Aged IPA, Sierra Nevada Grand Cru, La Trappe Isid'or, Orkney Skull Splitter, Lagunitas Censored (Kronik), and Lagunitas The Hairy Eyeball Ale.

All of these brews - and 3 more that I can't remember - came to $110 with the 10% discount, which is pretty reasonable considering their calibre. They also sell a small range of glassware, including the Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass and a Sierra Nevada Anniversary tulip. Overall, this place has very quickly established itself as Daytona's best beer store and it's an obvious destination for any beer geek in the area.

Place right on Beach Street in Daytona before you cross the Halifax River. It is adjacent to McK's and appears to be owned by the same people.

Beer selection is solid with plenty of domestics, limited releases, and a section of imports. They sold singles and I made a 6 pack plus got 2 bombers of New Belgium Lips of Faith I can't get in NY.

The shop manager was a great guy. Spoke about what he had, their availability of stuff like Cigar City, and some of the new releases.

They have a Facebook page to mention new releases, but I didn't see it updated recently. If you are in the Daytona area this is probably your best bet for quality craft.

I took my family on vacation to Daytona Beach. I used BA to find this little gem of a bottle shop next door to Mc K's Irish Restaurant. (Eat and drink there also)

Bottle Caps had a nice selection in their limited space. Hauled away some Jai Alai and a mix a six. I received 10% off both 6ers. Nice! There was plenty of other stuff to choose from but like I mentioned the family was ready to go after my 10 minutes in there.

I chatted briefly with the guy that was working. He was pleasant and knowledgeable.

I will definitely return here on my next trip to the Beach.

My wife and I had lunch at McK's, and I asked our waitperson where I could buy some beers for our time in Daytona Beach. She directed me to Bottle Caps, just adjacent to the tavern. I think they're both under the same ownership.

Anyway, this place is a diamond in the rough. It's tiny (really tiny), with an eclectic selction of domestic and foreign beers. I saw beers from Bell's, Lagunitas, Great Divide, Shmaltz, Swamp Head, Cigar City, Terrapin, Left Hand, Six Point, Sam Adams, and Geary's, to name a few. A nice selection of Belgians, and several from the UK.

The beers are arranged in groups of individual bottles, so you can buy a straight 6, or you can mix and match. The great thing is a 10% discount on the mixes. They even do the same discount if you buy a 6 of bombers, which I did.

The proprietor was friendly and knowledgeable; I enjoyed speaking with him.

Would go here anytime I get back to Daytona Beach.

After traveling to Daytona for work a few times and not finding a bottle shop I was super impressed with, I'm so glad that BeerAdvocate "places" helped me find this place! Had a great selection of beers I can't get up my way (Upstate New York) like Cigar City, Terrapin and Bells. Even had local to me Southern Tier and Ommegang beers that I can't get by me. The store is pretty small, but I was definitely impressed by what they had given the space. Also, when you buy a 6 pack or more you get a 10% discount on your order. I got 6 bombers/750s and 6 singles for $80. Not bad for some pretty huge beers. They even threw in a free Octoberfest mug too! Staff was super friendly and knowledgeable and chatted me up for about 20 mins. Make sure to stop by McK's (attached) before you leave and grab a pint (or several).

Also, a couple hours after I left the place the bottom bomber carrier that they gave me gave out and all of my bombers/750s exploded onto the ground. I went back the next morning and told the owner of my misfortune and even though he absolutely didn't have to do anything for me at all, he gave me a 20% discount on the beers I lost (I replaced all of them since I was REALLY looking forward to drinking them), gave me a bunch of free singles leftover from a tasting (including a St Bernardus Abt 12!!!), and threw in a 1L Paulaner mug too. I was prepared to just buy the beer again since it was largely my fault for not properly supporting the box, but the owner went above and beyond to help me out. I hope his beer karma is returned to him 100 fold! I will absolutely be returning to this place and would encourage anybody in the area to check it out too!

I'm so glad a place like this finally opened in Daytona! This is the first decent place in the area that allows customers to make their own 6-pack, and there's a 10% discount each time as well!

The selection is very decent though it won't get any extremely rare beers. It does however get most releases from the breweries commonly found in Florida.

The service is friendly and always helpful. It has happened on more than one occasion in which I came to the next-door bar after hours and the owner opened the shop for me so I could make a take-out six pack.

This place works great in Daytona Beach, but I must admit it wouldn't stand up to the average beer store in Orlando.

Bottle Caps was just opened 2 weeks ago, and I have been there 3 times already. This store is right next door to the daytona beach craft beer staple McK's. This place is very clean, well organized, and continually growing in selection. Bottle Cap is very unique in that you can first try a beer next door at McK's, then if you like it, you walk right next door and purchase it to take home. Selection as I mentioned earlier is continually growing. I talked to the owner who informed me that soon there will be 300 different beers to choose from. Everything is priced individually and if you buy 6 different beers, you will receive 10% percent off your total purchase. As for value, I find that prices are well within reason. Bottle Caps is a must for any craft beer fan in the area.

p.s. I hear it is in the works to create a beer tasting schedule soon.
