Hey! That’s my picture up above, heh!

This place is a nice go to for both craft brew and nice imports. They seem to be big on Colorado and N.E. breweries. Nice selection of Belgiums like Leffe and Grimberger. Unibroue also represented.

They have a large 20 foot cooler full of nice beer, and an additional warm shelf, also about 20 feet long. All very well lighted and clean.

Staff has changed – it’s now bored college kids that WILL NOT get off their asses for any service, you’re on your own.

I also want to mention that they have another sister shop just 3 miles up on Alafaya Trail - same name and the address is 15 Alafaya Woods Blvd (in another shopping mail) in Oviedo.

Been around Orlando and still can't find a place that has the variety of selection they have. Great beer sold and at an ok price on some. I say some because there are a few they sell overpriced.

I went not expecting too much, but was pleasantly surprised. I have very recently turned 21, so I don't have much experience besides this place and a random assortment of liquor stores, most notably Gator Beverage in Gainesville (for it's awesome selection). Anyway, Pat's had a pretty damn good selection as well, not amazing but two aisles of beer, one import one domestic. Awesome enough, they had the BeerAdvocate rating printed out and put on stuff that got a B or better, and a few ratings as well. Very helpful for me, as I have a limited amount of experience.

The staff were helpful, and friendly. I asked about DFH 120 Minute IPA, and the guy mentioned that they got it rarely, and I could call on a Sunday morning when the manager was making orders and find out when they would be getting it in next.

This is the best place to buy beer that I've found so far around UCF.

If this place in were in almost any other town in Florida, it'd be rated a lot higher, but here in Orlando we luckily have more than a few establishments to find good beer.

Still, Pat's does have a very nice selection, and it's located on the edge of what I call the beer demilitarized zone (if you wander east or north past Pat's, abondon all hope). Which is good for people who live nearby, who don't want to sit through the Orlando traffic just to get some decent beer.

Basically, if you can't tell by the name, Pat's is a liquor store that also sells wine and cigar/tobacco stuff, but curiously, they left out the beer in the name. Which is wierd, cuz they do have a lot of beer. A good chunk of floor space devoted to beer actually. Almost every micro that gets distributed in O-Town is represented. Also, the usual Belgian, German, British, imported craft beers are there. And that's all there is to say really.

Oh yea, and the staff is friendly, some of the guys there like to talk about beer, and it's clean, which I guess counts for something.
