I recently spent a few days in Cocoa Beach. This was by far the best place to shop for beer in the area. The place is a huge warehouse of liquor, with a small section devoted to beer, and only a portion of that being craft brews. I was able to find a couple of Cigar City beers, as well as the usual suspects one can find pretty much anywhere in the country.

Service was pretty non-existent. Again, it's a giant store, and the employees are there to ring you up, not to serve as guides or sources of information regarding craft beer. I was disappointed to find several craft IPAs and DIPAs in the warm section, when there was ample refrigerator space available. I highly doubt there are any beer connoisseurs working at the store who would care about things of that nature. Oh well...Prices were fairly reasonable. I paid around $20 for two six-packs of Cigar City brews, with which I was happy.

If you are from out of town and you are looking for a decent selection without a lot of drive this is it. They have Terrapin, CCB, Victory, Cocoa Beach Brewing Co, Founders, Oskar Blues, just a well rounded selection get you some beer and hit the beach!

Since the Cocoa Beach area is void of good beer, this place stands out if you are looking for good beer. That said, this place does not have a very big selection. It's a very large store, mostly devoted to wine. They have a rack about the size of my kitchen table devoted to craft beer. Stone, Rogue, Brooklyn, Full Sail to name a few. Nothing really out of the ordinary will be found here. Only positive is they sell singles of any of their beers, too few places do that. However, you do pay a premium for the singles, if you buy about 4, you might as well by the whole sixer.

If you find yourself in Cocoa Beach looking for craft beer, this is the place to go, but don't expect to find anything out of the ordinary here.

This is one of the few stores with any kind of craft beer selection in Cocoa Beach. They have a small selection of US and international bottles on one shelf unit. Selection consists of a few Trappists, such as Koenigshoeven and a few other Belgians. A few British and Scottish examples. Lots of American craft beers, such as Stone and Rogue.

Prices are OK for 6- and 4-packs, but there is a significant jump when you break those packages up. For instance, Delirium Nocturnum was ~$19 for a 4-pack, but ~$7 for a single.
