Visited this a couple of days after visiting the store in Destin.

I like the layout of the store, with plenty of space dedicated to beer, and with a nice bar in the corner to choose from about a dozen different draft beers, with a couple of tables. It has a huge cooler (REALLY cold!) like the Destin store has; as others have posted, there were a few beers in there that were NOT visible (or available) from outside the cooler.

I didn't need much help, but the staff were helping a number of other customers. They did have Wi-Fi. As with the Destin store, they had a number of beers on sale (mostly winter beers).

Overall, an enjoyable experience.

Florida Panhandle is no beer mecca....some might call it a wasteland, but these folks labor to put their customers in the game. Easily the best bottle shop within a 60 mile radius.

One of the better craft beer (package) selections in the area. They get great allocations from distributors, which on the Panhandle means a lot. They're excellent about making sure everyone gets a fair shake at buying whatever was put on the shelves at 10AM (limit one per customer on the rarities) and have a nice draft selection for having a beer, flight or growler fill. They also have a BIG beer cave.

We were meeting family for lunch at Props, so we got there a bit early and took a jaunt across the parking lot to the nearby Beach Liquors. This is a pretty cool liquor store for Florida, and had an excellent beer selection, including a bunch of southern beers that can't be found back in Yankeeland. I was also pleased to find that they had 14 taps of beer to serve you while you wander the store shopping. I had a glass of a new favorite IPA, the Cigar City Jai Alai. My wife had a glass of B. Nektar Zombie Killer Melomel. Seriously, what store or even bar has mead on tap??? We spent some time pestering the staff who were busy restocking shelves and puttering around the store. I bought a bunch of beers to try during our stay in Florida: mostly Dogfish Head beers that I have never tried before, but also some Lazy Magnolia Pecan Brown for my dad, and a crazy good mango and pepper mead from B. Nektar called Necromangocon. I do wish they had stocked more Cigar City beers, but was able to smuggle a couple cans of Jai Alai home with me. Overall, a fun little trip and a good way to kill some time before lunch at Props.

This is my favorite store in the area. IT IS THE ONLY LIQUOR STORE I'VE SEEN WITH TAPS! YOU CAN GET A GLASS OF BEER OR GROWLER! The prices are better than everywhere in town and the staff is very knowledgeable. It has the best craft beer selection with all sorts of brews from the States and abroad.
