I did a tasting here so I took the time to peruse the selection for the first time. Over the years I had stopped in here countless times for beer or liquor. I grew up in Tampa and Reddington Beach was an oft visited area, but as far as liquor stores this is pretty much allt he small beach town has to offer.

The slection is passable with a few decent brews worth stopping in for. They do carry the whole Dunedin lineup though so if you are vactioning and want to try the local micro it is worth a stop.

Located just across the bridge in Largo, 688 is a nice beer shop. The wife and I went in intent on purchasing items for Margarita night, but we bought Margarita's AND beer. Purchased five pints of locally brewed Dunedin beers. Service was excellent. I was searching the nice selection in the coolers and was unable to find Dunedin. The guy working the floor pointed out the beer and told all the information about the beers. Great service. Selection was above average for the area, seeing as this is the only place with micro collections. Selection was small but plenty.

An unexpectedly decent stop near Indian Rocks Beach. This is primarily a wine shop that has regular tastings. That being said, it is also a good beer outlet that has plenty of singles and lots of micro brews. There are a few macros but it obvious that micros are favored in this venue.

There are all of the usual suspects plus local beers from Florida Beer Company, Dunedin Brewery, and others. Not a lot of imports except for the majors. Decent checkout service, but not much floor help. Worth a stop in the area of Indian Rocks and Indian Shores.
