Located in a shopping center on the outskirts of Winter Park. Low marks on ambience as the cashier insisted on blasting us out first with "Billy Jean" and then some nerve wracking speed metal at full blast on his portable cd player! That aside - the place has a great selection of beers form around the world and slected micros. All the trappists are represented outside of Westy and many western brewers are represented as well such as Rogue, Avery, Mendocino and Left Hand. Most are available in singles and the arrangement is nice and spread out - one whole side of the store is set aside for beer. The clerk was helpful - offered his help for suggestions, but did not linger or hover. A good place to stop if in the Orlando/Winter Park area

Finally visited Big C and I have to say..."Hey not bad." They arenít Knightly good, but they have some laudable selections. Had DFH 120 singles when I was there plus Nieuw Ligt Grand Cru ($10.99 a bottle and I had to get one) and a few others I was tempted to pick up. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the area and they seem to be very ratebeer.com savvy.

This place is solid. Iím re-rating based on many visits now as I live right down the road. 450 bottles advertised and they appear to be expanding a little. Good selection, decent pricing, some of the staff seems to know their stuff. All in all this is a nice stop, especially if on the east side of Orlando. Iíd certainly rank this below Knightly but I think this place gets underrated because itís not Knightly and I canít think of too many other retailers in the area that are better.

Decent place to get some good beer. I work two blocks away and sometimes take friends to this store to help them beer shop if they canít get across town to Knightly. Staff is friendly.

Very good selection. Probably have 100+ singles, including some stuff Iíve never seen before. They have all the standards (Rogue, DFH, etc.) but also some very unique and limited release stuff. Pricing was average. I picked up some DFH Fort, Fullers Vintage, Hebrew Genesis 10:10, Ayinger Celebrator, and Calva Reserva. They had a bunch of other stuff I wanted to get, but my fridge is overflowing, so Iíll have to go back. They even had RateBeer tags on some of their beers. Overall, very good store.

Update for 2011: They have re-arranged their beer layout quite a bit since my 2007 rating. Selection is larger, although some brands (Cantillon, Mikkeller) are not around anymore. Stock of Cigar City, plus plenty of good choices.

I question age of every bottle/can in this place unless it has a date stamp. Big selection, cramped space, indifferent service, but the only real game in town.

I used to live in Orlando right down the road from this place. I was just starting to get into beer and then I graduated and moved down south. I canít believe that I didnít take full advantage of this place. Itís got a lot of great stuff. Definitly check it out.

Staff was friendly. Definitely alot of wasted space that they could use because the store is pretty big. Selection is pretty good for a retail store. I work at Knightly Spirits so I wasnt blown away by any means. Was disappointed in the knowledge of the staff but they seemed like they were at least willing to learn. They definitely needed a little training though. Found a few bottles that we were sold out on and I was looking for so that was nice. That was my main purpose for the visit. I wish we had the space they do at our store, we would be unstopppable!! Overall not a bad store at all.
