Visiting from TX, on BA recommendations visited, They had nice selection of singles, found several beers looking for not available at home. Then talking to the staff was lead to General Zhukov and the push variant also a Wide Awake It's Morning by Funky Budda. The staff was knowledgable, friendly and very helpful. Highly recommend

I love Wine World, they have the best selection of craft beers I have found in the area. The store does feel a little crowded but I will deal with that for the huge selection of beers. The staff is knowledgeable and very friendly. My only gripe is that I am an hour away, although it is well worth the drive!

Definitely have the best selection of craft beers in Panama city. I'm huge into craft beer and this is my go to spot for fresh IPA, all the new releases (especially since they always get them before anyone else) and the workers are all knowledgeable. Love this place

Attached to gastropub next door (The Craft Bar) which offers crowlers and growler fills from their tap list.

Service was lacking; friendly but no knowledge of beer inventory.

Store featured better than decent selection, but no Cantillon on hand. Walked out with Sixpoint Puff, Stillwater Yacht, Grimm Super Spruce, Green Bench Sunshine City, and Freigeist Geisterzug Gose Rhubarb from Braustelle. They also had quite a few meads, Ezekiel's Wheel from Burnt Hickory, one selection from NOLA, and a few from Funky Buddha that I saw.

Guy working was VERY knowledgeable, gave me a sample of Proof's Creatures of the Night Stout from Tallahasee which is AWESOME. I ended up buying 7 single bottle, 5 bombers, (2) 6 packs and a Crowler of the Creatures of the Night. Great selection. First time finding Cigar City beer too

Diamond in the rough! Smack dab in the middle of a huge concrete strip mall. Don't let the name fool you. Some pretty pricey options (I like to stay under $4 per bottle). Awesome German selection! The manager was very knowledgeable and helpful. Chatted for a half an hour.

Best selection in the area. Good stuff on tap that you can drink while browsing the bottles.

Most of the reviews on this site are from the old location by Publix which was staffed by a different crew up until a couple of years ago. The new location does not have taps inside the store but it is attached to The Craft Bar which has 30 taps. The store has a ton of sours and a good mead selection along with the usual big craft brands. Best selection in PC area.

Go next door to Publix instead. Up from South Florida and this place is junk. The staff is horrible, mean and not helpful. Asked about certain beers, dude at store new nothing about beer and was not helpful. Guy Was on the phone laughing the whole time, not interested in me. I went next door to Publix and they have HUGE beer selection. Go there and do all your shopping. This place is lame.

Clerk didn't seem to know alot about beer or beers, except maybe PBR.

Pitty cause this place had a good selection of beer just not to easy to find items end caps seemed abit dissholved and open cases in the alise.

But, it is the beach and I guess you have to expect a certain amount of dah!

I think they could offer a better price for a volume discount

We went here last Saturday. Workers seemed distracted, with golf on TV. Not much help. We knew what we wanted, did not drink any beers on tap. The few customers in the store were shopping on their own, I am used to some assistance in my shopping. I told my husband 'Kind of a rude place', he agreed. Being a nurse, I help people, but that is not a requirement here. The service was so lame. Seems sort of a snobish attitute, which I guess is expected in a expensive wine store. We will not be back unless we can't find good beers anyplace else.

This place was ridiculous. First off let me say, the only impressive thing about this place was their bottled beer selection. It was huge! But for me and my friends, who came in to have a few pints, this was a disaster. This was the start of a Saturday for me and some drinking buddies that were wanting to hit up some local places as I was in town for the weekend. My sister used to rave about this place last spring but warned me it has went down hill recently. Unfortunately, this was the worst stop of our day.

I have heard a lot about this place. Belgians, Stouts. Something like13 taps. The first problem is, is that they only have a few taps. And 3 of those were sitting empty. Several that I ordered were no longer in service, still on the menu, but empty??And they did not tap any additional kegs to replace them. Short guy with a beard said they will be putting some new kegs on soon. “Uh Hello, we are here now?” He had no personality and spent all the time we were there talking to some other employee who both seemed to be doing nothing. They did not care about us in the least. Second of all, every time I ordered a beer, I had to tell the "bartender" which beer I was ordering. I had to point him towards the beer I wanted. I have never experienced this before. The guy never had any idea what we wanted. He was pretty clueless.

Two of us got an IPA of which tasted like vegetable soup and a onion that was beyond its prime. This tells me that they don't keep fresh beers and that no one really cares how fresh their IPAs are. They just want to sell them. They have a ton of domestic beers in bottles and sold some while we were there, probably what they want to sell.

We went to cash out, and the checks for my brother and me were messed up. The only issue was that they put the wrong beer on his tab instead of mine.. Easy fix right?? Wrong!! Apparently no one in this establishment wanted to take our money. 3 minutes later the bearded fellow walks in carrying grocery bags! I guess he went grocery shopping instead of working. Plus the Beer menu had one of the Belgian beers at $6 and they were charging us $8? No one knew what was going on.

Also, I guess they do growler fills here, but I wouldn't suggest it, as they are skimping the customers about 4 to 6 ounces on the growler fills. No one even knows how to do this. No glass just some plastic milk jugs. Odd. This was a prime example of how a bar/business should not be run. No one knew what is going on, no one knows what beers they have on tap, no one knows what beers to pour, etc.. This was by far the worst experience I have ever had in a bar. I would not go back to drink here. I don’t know how this place got a positive review other than with their bottled beer which they have a large selection. My sister warned me, I should have listened. You will probably be disappointed as well.

Very happy to find Wine World only 6 miles from the condo. The service was outstanding. I was disappointed not to find 2XIPA but the gentleman assisting me was prompt to to point me in the direction of several other double or triple IPAs. I was not floored by their selection but I've been spoiled by the selection standards back in Athens, GA. Five Points Bottle etc. I also love the fact that they have beer on tap. He offered me several good samples and I can't wait to return to WW Wednesday evening for their beer tasting from 6-8. They have Jah*va stout on tap. ;)

Bottom-line: if you're in PCB and good beer is a must have then go to Wine World.

They are located on the Panama City Beach Pkwy by Publix and the best place to get good craft beer in Panama City, and most likely the best on the panhandle. They keep a good selection and it's always amazingly fresh, I've never had a problem getting a beer with a good date unlike I do at many other places. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and helpful, they also have a few tables with chairs along with a really good tap selection and even beer tastings every week on Wednesday starting at 6:00PM.

Wine World is the place to go for craft beer in Panama City. I'm from Louisiana, and I wanted to make sure I took the opportunity to pick up some good beer while I was in the area. The employees were really knowledgeable not only about the beer that they had in stock, but also about what beer we have in Louisiana and what's not available in the state. I spent a little over $100 and picked up a pretty good selection of beer.

One of the best parts is that they have about 10 pretty good beers on tap, so you can sample while you check out the selection. Definitely check out Wine World if you're in the area.

Past vacations at the Florida panhandle have provided great sand and sun, but not so great in the beer selection aspect. My, how times have changed. I was initially happy just to find Victory at the Winn Dixie and Publix, so I was floored to walk into this place. Excellent selection, particulary for the area, of U.S. micros, with some nice, hoppy, heavy hitters. An admirable cross-section of German and Belgian styles, as well. Growler fills from about 8 taps was a nice option, although I was not in a position to take advantage.

I love this place. I live in Panama City Beach and I love to hang out at Wine World. They have a fairly good selection, a really good choice of beers on tap, and a knowledgeable staff. It's a really relaxed atmosphere. Cool place to go get a draught and check out what's new on the shelves. All my favorites are here too. Drop by, grab a pint, pull up a chair and relax. There's a full selection of craft beers as well as imports and liquor too. There's usually a pitcher special too if you're in the mood to toss back a few, or just grab a 2 dollar PBR.

I visited Wine World while taking a lil vacation. I'm from FL. so much of the selection was on par with what is available 6 hours south. They run a very clean store with plenty of space to roam around. I was THRILLED to find some Cigar City on tap. I drank a pint of Maduro while browsing the store. Does it really get any better...drinking a gr8 brew while shopping for some?? Anyways, the selection was solid. Plenty of imports and good selection of terrapin, lagunitas, rouge, DFH, Bells, and Stone to name a few. I found some wake n bake and some terrapin side project still available. Bells java stout was also nice to see. They offer singles and everything on tap was available for growler fills. The staff was great. I spoke with Dan for over 15 minutes. He was very beer oriented and knew his stuff. He said that he is going to be getting more Cigar City in the bottles soon and that the locals were dying to get it. Dan informed me of the tastings that are held every Wednesday. Overall just a great place, with a nice atmosphere, great prices, and friendly staff. A must stop if u are gonna be in the area.
