Wow, This place is way better than expected! Lots of hard to find beers and many local limited beers that I have yet to see in Tampa stores. Tap list is solid. The store layout is just perfect, grouped by style and a local section that is very extensive. The new arrival section I also like a lot, this saves time. Only issue on my visit (1-2016) is not a good selection of Gueze and Lambics all other styles covered very well. 4.6. 7-2016 revisit, not as much variety as back in January and the growler selection was one sided, heavy on the stouts & IPA, its summer and you would figure more lighter beers. still a good beer store, 4.3

Very freindly and knowledgeable staff and owner. Prices are in line and better then the other local store. Great selection of beers and 12 beers on tap to drink there or to fill a Growler to go.

This is the place to find craft beer in Brandon. They have the largest selection categorized by region. They also have a draft bar and do growler fills.

The layout is very nice for a beer store and the selection is as well. They also have a decent amount of cider and mead and small selection of quality wines. You can usually find some of the rarer stuff too but they don't just cater to the hard core beer geek.

They have 12 taps and always seem to have at least 8-10 local Florida beers you can't get in small package. But you can get a growler to go or have a drink while you shop or just chill at one of the tables or bench. I especially like that they are always trying to get local stuff from smaller breweries like; Three Palms, Rapp, Cycle, Angry Chair, Two Henrys etc.

Their staff is super friendly and knowledgeable as well. Overall it is the best place around to shop for beer when considering everything.

Closest place near my brother's house.

Loved the organization & layout of the place

Service was friendly, enthusiastic & honest. I asked about a couple of beers & they warned me off of them for quality issues

Selection was pretty good, about 6 beers on drafter for tiny growler fills, plus you can get single beers

I thought the beer prices weren't too bad

I will hit this place again when I go back down to visit
