I recently found this place and was amazed. There are a few beers out there I've been looking for (rare Dogfish Heads, rare Unibroue, Cantillon, Fantome) in the Orlando region and I wasn't able to find any until I found this place.

There are two long rows(one shelf and one cooler) so it doesn't appear at first that there is an impressive selection but once you start looking at the bottles, you will be pleased...it doesn't matter who you are. anyone will find something to buy here. bring lots of money!

They have one of the best selections in Central Florida. You can find some good rare stuff and their Belgian selection is very good. Half the time, the guy working the counter doesn't know anything about craft beer so don't expect to get help with recommendations. But hey, that's what BA is for.

Per the high rating in BA, I went to Big Cs for some craft beer for Thanksgiving. I am from Boston and my parents live in Orlando,

Place was a bit hard to find, and when I found it, it was small liquor store, stuff rammed everywhere.

They do have a huge selection of beer, but much of it was very dusty and old. They had a 12 pack of Point beer in the cooler from summer 2012. Many of the other bottles had lots of dust, though I didn't check all the dates, it just looked old. The guy behind the counter didn't know anything.

Bigger selection than ABC, but old and not a nice store. I wouldn't recommend.

I used to live literally .25 miles away from this place and while I was there they had an ok selection of craft beer. Went back a couple of months ago and my oh my how things have changed! They now carry a HUGE selection, some stuff I have never seen in FL. The only down side to me is that they are often over-priced. For example, they had Evil Twin's Yin and Yang for a whopping $8/per 12 oz bottle! The Total Wine by my job had them for $3 a piece. Not cool.

Big C is right down the street from where I work, and I'm just bummed I didn't find it earlier. Unless someone told you about it, you'd never think to go into it to find craft beer. When you first enter, you're immediately hit with loud rap music and a ton of crap liquor. Navigate your way to the back though, and you enter a hidden world of beer awesomeness. They have a great selection of domestic and imported brew. Whether you're looking for the latest BA, DIPA, or Abbey ale, or just a cold 4pk of DFH, they have it all. They get limited quantities though, so you have to get there fast. As far as service is concerned, unless you see a guy with great side burns behind the counter, don't bother asking for recommendations. If he is there though, chat him up. Great dude. Super knowledgeable.

After reading these reviews I sort of knew what to expect but was still actually surprised when I came around the corner of the store and saw that import singles isle. ~25ft long and 4-5 rows high, packed full of single bottles, both small and 750l organized by country and style.

I went in looking for Belgians and Trappist brews on this trip and they had most all of them in stock.

They also have lots of cool gift boxes with beer and chalices, odd unusual brews you don't see anywhere else and a massive cooler full of cold 6 packs and 12 mix packs from the major craft brewers.

Of course they also have regular liquor and wine.

It nice knowing now that I don't have to drive all the way over to Knightly or Total Wine every time I want good imports. I can add one more place to the tiny list of beer store choices we have here in OrBlando

I visit Big C's everytime Im near. Its tucked away in a shopping center right of University Boulevard and Goldenrod. First of all, just before you get to the beer wall, there is a small display rack full of all different styles of premium beer glasses. Best news is they are all only $2.99. Now on to the beer, they have at least 300 diffent breweries stocked there. Everything from the Bruery, to Brewdog. Really too many to keep rambling on about. As for prices, they are great. Extremely reasonable. I would say THE only negative thing about this store is the clerks never seem to know much about beer. Who cares though. I know exactly the stuff Im looking for.
