My wife and I visited my father in Punta Gorda, and this was one of the few nearish places listed that might have decent beer.

The place is moderately sized and cramped. It's laid out kind of like a run down convenience store -- the one noticeable employee was behind a counter (I'm not sure, there might have been a cage around her and I might have been able to by scratch off tickets there).

The beer selection was surprisingly good (ignoring all the macro brands). Bourbon County (2017 and 2018) and Bourbon County Vanilla were on the shelf; CBS, Marshal Zhukov also on the shelf. They had a limited selection of sours, and I was impressed that I don't think I saw any IPAs older than 3 months, and most were less than 6 weeks.

As far as "best beer stores I've ever been to" -- it's not on the list. But it's the best beer store I've been to near Punta Gorda.

Captains is a fairly small liquor store, but absolutely packed with a wide beer selection. It's a little bit cluttered and you have to weave your way around the place. The owner is a delightful man willing to help you find what you need and can typically order it if he doesn't normally carry it. I enjoy being made to feel like I matter (vs. any other liquor store service).
