Proof is a great little bar tucked away in a mess of FSU's college bar scene. Brewery on site, that knocks out some superb brews, esp their Rye. Liquor store attached that sells almost zero macro, and a medium sized craft selection, but the selection is well varied. I frequent here several times a week. If you're not of college age, don't worry. The college crowd doesn't show up until pretty late (9ish); so you easily find a seat and a bartender to chat beer with. Most of the staff is knowledgeable about most beer styles, and they certainly know the beers brewed in house.

The Tennessee st. Location is now closed but the brewery is open at railroad square. The best brewery in north Florida. They do everything right. Always solid beers and never a disgusting infected beer on tap. They truly care about craft and our dedicated to perfecting each and every beer. I wish every brewery had this same passion and craft.

This place can be awesome but it can also get extremely crowded. The owner is a great person and when the crowd is right you can have a lot of fun. Also, they were pretty much the first brewery in town and deserve kudos for that.

All locations are outstanding. I have frequented this establishment since I came to Tallahassee for school in its early years, and I am still constantly impressed with every new change they have made.

At the Tennessee St brewpub/retail location, there is an upscale lounge/chill nightclub vibe to the place and they have glassware giveaways weekly, among other featured events. Upstairs is the retail store right next to the brewpub. The store has a plethora of beers for sale organized by region (for domestics), coupled with imports organized by style/country/ect. There is a vast selection of high quality spirits, wines, and even single beers and a bomber cooler as well.
The brewpub has full liquor/wine bars- upstairs and down, both with a very large selection of taps and outdoor patio areas with seating.

The brewery location at Rail Road Square (RRSQ) is a great location with outdoor seating, boccee ball courts, cornhole, ping pong, and also indoor seating where you can see the brewery through glass windows behind the bar.

I love both of these places, and I dont know if it's the Guru talking (their IPA) or what, but I just typed 1,151 characters talking about my favorite bar in town. Highly recommended if you're in Tallahassee

Definitely for the college kids. The bartenders seem to be kids like like to drink beer, not people that know beer. For being such a small operation, it definitely felt like they thought they were bigger and more well known than they actually are. The beers taste good! They had a decent selection of beers and a handful of guest taps. The outdoor seating area is kind of neat. It's artificial turf that is hot as hell, and a lot of parents and toddlers were running around aimlessly, but it looks good. The guy checking IDs at the front made it seem not like a brewery, but a bar on any strip in any college town. A lot of backwards hats, forearm sweatbands, and pens in ears. I would rather go to a random bar and try their beer on tap, because the vibe of the place is not my cup of tea.

Nice place. Only reason I rated it lower is because Im not impressed with Proofs beer which hurts their selection. Other than that, solid brewpub/brewery.
