Re-re-rate. Best beer store in the Tampa Bay area selection wise.

March 31st 2006 Re-rate

After a second visit I have to up the rating on this place. There are precious few bottle shops I can go to in the Bay Area and drop $130 bucks and still leave behind 15+ beers I have yet to try.

They have been special ordering like mad it seems and I found JP Marcaibo (which no one else in the Bay Area has that I know of), Old Engine Oil Reserve..again only place I know that carries it. Flemish primitive, Aged Gales Barley Wines from 2001 that JUST arrived. Fish Tale brews and just tons of other things you wont see on other shelves. You really have to get down on your hands and knees and dig for beers and YOU WILL FIND old bottles, but if you know what has a chance to have survived there are gems galore.

The prices aren’t cheap, but they aren’t ludicrous like Hyde Park Express and they have beers that literally no one else has. I found a stout there I hadn’t had which was the first time in 4 months or more that had happened for me in a Florida bottleshop. I think it’s a new favorite and I personally think it is a must stop if you are in that area.

I start up the aisle and immediately see: Bush Prestige $50, Gonzo Imp Porter signed copy $99, Curieux and Musette $19, Deus $25, 03’ Lou Pepe Kriek $24, 06’ Panil $19, 01’ Gales Conquest $5, t’Ij, Scaldis Noel, Stille Nacht, Casta Milenia $10, 05’ Unibrou $7.50, HeBrew Jewbelation $4.50, Bison, Jolly Pumpkin, Fort $19, Boulder Killer Penguin, 9 L St. Feuillien, Fift packs, Harvey Elizabethen $4.50, 04’ Hitachino Nest $4.00, 03’ Gales Prize $4.50, Butte Creek 10th Anniver. Imp. IPA (Whoa...I boutht that puppy, not available in CO and high praise...had to have...wow...we’re in Florida, remember!), Stouts, Sprecher, Rogue, Flying Dog Wild Dog $17, Duchesse, Belzebuth, DFH, Avery, Fish Tale Leviathan (I thook this also!), Baladin, ST. Bernardus 60th $12, Delerium, Fantome, Geants, Drie Fonteinen Sharbeeks Kriek, La Choulette. Yeah baby, this place rocks. Sure some are dated...bring them on!! I ask the dude, WHY do you have these!! The Pakistani? owner says, "Well, people like them!" Yeah baby, this is one fine little gem amongst bikinis and sand castles. NOTE: I was there around Feb. 07.

Best beer store in the Tampa area, bar none. In fact, this only trails Knightly as the best beer store I have ever been to. I was in there for an hour and still didn’t see everything they had. What I did see was about 50 beers I had never seen anywhere else in Tampa. Nogne, Olfabrikken, Struise Pannepot just to name a few. Prices are fair, and the service is there if you need them. I prefer to be left alone, so it works for me. Almost every sampler pack you can think of, tons of rare beers, and glasses as well. Almost the perfect beer store, except some stuff is a bit old and it could be a bit spacier. Overall outstanding for what it is. Well worth the 45 minute drive.

An out of the way place, but overall very good selection. Prices are usually higher than everyone else, but they’ll most likely still have something that you missed out on.

Looks are very deceiving, this place looks like a run down connivance store. Open the front door and its packed wall to wall with beer and wine. Lots of craft offerings. If you know where to look there are some real treasures here. Great Belgium beer selection but make sure you watch dates if your going for Ipa’s. I have seen some pretty dated stuff on the shelf’s here.

Stopped in here today, as I am staying in Largo- and damn, this place is definitely an essential! From the outside, you would think this is a run down typical macro distribution store- then you see the massive selection of craft beer split up into three or four aisles. Struise Pannepot, plenty of bottles of Ommeggeden and Chocolate Indulgence, 6 or 7 different varieties of Jolly Pumpkin (a couple of which I haven’t seen anywhere esle) , and all of the other great stuff Logan and some others have mentioned. Normally I would give a run down looking store like this a low mark on ambiance, but the atmosphere feels completely different once you are in the beer aisles drooling over the awesome selection.

I have been driving (or riding, when i was younger) past the place for years and years, and just thought it was a hole in the wall beer store for the drunks. But now getting into the craft scene and all this, i went in there to see what they had, and man it was nice. I havent been to a whole buttload of stores, but ive been to most of them around here, and i would have to say this place has the nicest selection. But just like everyone else said, there is some old stuff there, but thats good for some people, just be sure to look for date.

A hidden gem of a beer store. Blink and you’ll miss it. Cleverly hidden by the drunks out front toting the brown bag covered fortys and the cheap beer/lottery signs in front. Go inside and do a little treasure hunting.....lotsa jewels to be found. Great selection!

Right around the corner from my apartment. Although the staff may not know a lot about beer, the selection is quite nice. Kind of surprised me to see some of the beers I saw.

If you’re in the Largo area, I would recommend that you stop in this store!
Some of their beer may be out-dated but you will certainly find a selection of rare beers that have not been imported for some time! It is always a fun treasure hunt in this store! …. it is a new favorite stop for me!
