Got this location from the distributor for Stone Brewing Co. in Indiana, Cavalier Distributors out of Indianapolis. Appreciate the heads up as I was wanting to get some Stone (cuz they don't sell in FL yet!).

The megabrew selection was large as expected for a liquor store, the craft brews meet the minimum for BA.com but just barely They carried Ruination, 9th Anniversary, IPA, Arrogant Bastard and Smoked Porter from Stone while I was there. Some Bell's, Upland, Summitand Pyramid brewers plus quite a few English like Young's, Sam Smith's, Smithwicks, Abbot Ale, etc, and several more well-known Belgians and German brews.

A reasonably new store with nice lighting, wide aisles, friendly staff (they brought me boxes to put my selections in, both regular cases and ones for 750's).

The prices seemed a bit high on some brews (confirmed later at other stores). $16.50 a six-pack for Bell's Two-Hearted Ale.Got it for $11 at Belmont Liquors downtown. They did give me a break on pricing because I was buying 3 cases, though. Just ask. The discount ran about $1.50 per 6-pack.
I'd shop there again but I'd price everything I wanted first then compare to other places before making any actual cash outlay. As it was, I spent $150 on 3 mixed cases (2 of 6-packs, 1 of 750's) after the discount.

They, like many others, will do special orders with advance notice of a week or two. They order on Tuesdays (for Stone at least).

I was very impresssed with this store. They have a wide selection of craft brews. Alot of them are in coolers. There are a wide selection of singles to make your own sixer. Nice selection of Avery, DFH, Founders, Bell's and Stone. I was happy to pick up some Founders KBS when I was there recently. The service is very friendly and willing to help with any questions. I found the prices to be a little lower than other area shops. My only complaint is there are no carts to load up more than you can carry to the checkout.
