I've been to this Total Wine a couple of times now and like the place. Lots of beer available, with everything available in singles, too.

I noticed several beers were past date, though, so watch out.

You can't beat their prices. No one has it cheaper.

And the selection is good. They don't have every beer available in Florida, but they carry most of them. Check out Beer World in Largo for the more exotic Belgians and one-offs.

There's not really any service unless you seek it out. The cashiers are friendly. So you'd better know something about beer, because there are precious few shelf-talkers.

But overall this is a great store and I wish it were closer to Sarasota. I spent $150 there yesterday: I essentially bought one of every beer they have that I haven't tried before.

Good vibe, friendly staff, very quiet, good allocation, right next to CCB, known to drop big bottles on the shelf and not say a word to anyone. Great selection of brews local and national.

Stopped in here today while in town. My first time at one of these. Big warehouse place with huge wine and liquor selection. Beer selection is solid enough but nothing particularly tough to find. Highlights were Clown Shoes and Bruery regulars. Otherwise, can find most of the stock nearby at small shops here in Gainesville. Left here without buying a single thing.

This store was a supposed must-stop on my way down the Dale Mabry. I must admit I was at least a little impressed. It's a nice, clean, tidy store with good space and room to look around. I like that there's an aisle dedicated just to singles, as the mix-a-sixer is my favorite option for trying as much as I can. The selection wasn't the biggest I've seen but very large by some standards. There was a good-sized cooler area with stuff in it, too. I saw plenty of Belgians and other imports I don't see here, which may or may not be saying much. While it was the standard stuff, there was also enough that's unavaiable to certain areas to satisfy me. Nobody stocking asked any questions or really glanced at me, but the cashier was friendly. The knowledge was fairly standard for the business as far as I could tell. This is a good place to go beer shopping.
