First off, this is an organic food co-op. So don't expect a huge selection of beer - no macros to be found either. You don't need to be a member to shop here, but you get a lower price if you are one. They do have some organic beer: Pinkus, Samuel Smith (they also have a couple of non-organic Sammy Smith's too), Sara and a few others. But their beer selection is not limited to organics. They have one of the most interesting English beer selections I've seen around here. I've bought Strong Suffolk, Ruddles County, Old Speckled Hen, Hen's Tooth, Riggwelter, Abbot Ale, St. Peter's Cream Stout and English Ale, Caledonian Golden Promise Ale, and Black Sheep Ale there and there's a few more I've yet to try that they have including Holy Grail Ale, and some new Scotch Ales they just started carrying. They also have Rochefort 8 and 10, Delerium Tremens, Baltika 7 and 9, Schwelmer, some micros like Shipyard, Boulder and North Coast. I'm sure I'm leaving some stuff out too. The beer section is fairly small but they sure do have some good stuff. Well worth a stop if you are in the area.

Update: I've found a number of out of date beers here, buyer beware.

6/07 Update: They are carrying a nice selection of beer these days, some trappist, nice English selection, DFH, Fish Tale ales, some Belgians, some other micros, and as always an excellent selection of available organic beer. There's been a definite improvement over time in their selection. They have also started carrying homebrew ingredients and a limited amount of equipment), including some organic ingredients.

Decent selection. Pretty ok prices. Cool vibe. Relatively friendly staff that seem to know a decent amount about whatever questions come their way. But the bottom line is that stuff doesnt move there. Old stock. Buyer beware.

Alright, I will be the first to own up to the fact that I stumbled upon this gem completely by accident. My wife is completely into the organic food lifestyle, and I usually bow out when it comes to grocery shopping, but we were at the beach and she had been wanting to stop here for a while, so I sucked it up and stopped. Good thing I did. This store has a very extensive selection of craft brews, both domestic and imported. Awesome selection! They carry a lot of local brew, including Cocoa Beach Brewery and Cigar City. On this particular trip I spotted 2 mini-barrels of Hopslam, as well. Great selection from all over the country, and decently priced. Even better priced if you are a member of the co-op, but not bad regardless. My wife shopped through the food sections, which gave me plenty of time to peruse the beer aisle. Also, they carry all the goods for homebrewing there, so you can totally hit some one-stop shopping action while there. I would highly recommend this stop if you are in the area!

This is the best quality selection of craft beer I personally have ever seen. The family decided to eat at Grilles, head down the strip and we stopped at this place. Lucky us! It was Earth Day so the organic hippies had a band out front and a big celebration. The shelves were stocked. They had one aisle that was full of craft beer! Hard to find collaborations, all kinds of Left Hand and Cigar City. We went crazy like a kid in a candy store and filled up the buggy with a Bolita Brown, DFH Namaste, Laguintas Cappucinno stout, a Black Albert, and several Left Hand beers. They also had a corner with Homebrewing supplies and a very helpful, curly bearded hippy that knew his beer like the back of his hand.

Visited on Sept. 8, 2010 right before hitting Cocoa Beach.

The store as i walk in seems to be a vitamin shop/health & organic foods store. The beer selection is not far from the cash and i must say i was impressed by the level of quality present. Lots of Belgians including some Black Albert that i haven't seen anywhere else on my trip. Also, they had Brewdog, Raccoon Lodge, 12 different Hoppin' Frog, Smuttynose and others. The prices were pretty reasonable with even a discount rack (albeit small). Definitely worth checking out if you're heading to Cocoa Beach as it's only about 10 minutes away.

I heard about this place from a member of the local homebrew club, SAAZ. It has a fairly small beer selection, but all of it is high quality. They have quite a few unusual Belgian and British styles, along with mead and many US craft brews. Redstone, Dogfish Head, Fantome, Greene King, The Bruery, Stone and Fuller's are just a few of the brands that jumped out at me.

The prices are good for the area and compare very well to the smaller selection at the many local ABC Wine Shops.

I am not a local, but I visit the Space Coast on business periodically. Sunseed has by far the most diverse and interesting beer selection I've seen East of Orlando. I will definitely return on my next trip.
