A rather un-assuming place from the outside. Looks like an innocent little convenient store, just like every other corner, until you see the palate stretching beer selection inside toward the back wall. The price is a bit higher here than some other places. But it has an impressive selection. I could have walked out with at least 40 different beers I havenít tried before and a good dozen or so Iíve never seen before. They still have Averyís ďThe BeastĒ 2004 bomber. In fact they have several. I should have picked one up but I had to draw the line somewhere. If Iím in the general area I will definitely stop in.

They are carefully cellaring several of my favorite beers right now, unless one of you buys them up before my next trip back.

i had called ahead and asked this guy,Indian Chappie, and he really had no idea of what he had but wanted me to know that it was just as good as World of Beer. Lots of obscure brews and a huge selection of cold ones . Lots of bums trying to beg cigs from a non-smoker.

A hidden gem of a beer store. Blink and youíll 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!

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

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 arenít cheap, but they arenít ludicrous like Hyde Park Express and they have beers that literally no one else has. I found a stout there I hadnít had which was the first time in 4 months or more that had happened for me in a Florida bottleshop. I think itís a new favorite and I personally think it is a must stop if you are in that area.

This is like going to a used record store! Theyíve got all kinds of stuff there! But youíve gotta dig for it! This was definitely worth the drive from Orlando.

An isolated, aging convenience store is sort of an odd place for all these great beers, but who cares? Their selection (along with World of Beer) is the best in the bay area, and along with the very reasonable prices itís the most convenient place for most of us in Pinellas to get their brews. As a previous reviewer noted, check the prices. A lot of these beers have obviously been sitting out in the open being knocked around for a year or more. The other day I decided not to buy their last bottle of Rogue IPA when I noticed that it was dated í03. Still, this is where I go most of the time.

Stopped by here on my way up to Dunedin. There are some old beers on the shelves (say a pilsner dated best before í03). Still managed to buy a case of singles though...

If youíre 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! Ö. it is a new favorite stop for me!

On arriving at this store you'd think you were walking in to your basic neighborhood convienience store. However, towards the back of the store, obscured by the usual bread and chip aisles you'll find a few hundred different beers from all over the world. Some stock is outdated but you can usually walk out of the place with some decent bottles. Service is almost non existent but if you have enough knowledge about beer, you can make it on your own.
