pineypower  (27) Pine Barrens, New Jersey | July 6, 2010
Walking into this place, I was given a sample of some "organic" gin, so right off the bat, that made a good impression. Craft section is pretty decent for Florida, had three cigar city brews when I was there, some Ommegang that I picked up and a pretty solid Belgian section. Definitely a go-to store in the area, they had all the craft staples youíd expect (Bellís, DFH, Stone, etc.). Didnít really get to talk beer with the staff, but after picking up 2 cigar city bottles the guy who checked me out didnít even comment, so Iím thinking he was a typical un-enlightened one thinking in his head, "huh, $13 for a 750 bottle, you could get a 30 rack of Natty for that". Overall though, from what Iíve seen in the rest of the state, this place was worth stopping by.

This is a full liquor store with a pretty good selection of beers. Most of the beer is sold cold and you canít break up six packs. Decent selection of bombers, and they usually are one of the first places in the Orlando area with Cigar City brews. Youíre on your own in this store. Donít expect to get any help unless you ask for it, and then you still may not get any. Pluses for selection, minuses for not selling many singles and most of the beer being cold.

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.

juiceisloose  (11) Windermere, Florida | October 17, 2008
This is a nice enough store with good size and space for everything. They seem to be trying to expand the amount of beer they have. The have a display in the front and one row of beer plus a wall of coolers with some craft stuff in a couple of the coolers. The could really do more with the space that they have though. The beers have ratebber tags on them, but I donít think the staff even knows what it means. The service isnít great at all. They have a pretty good selection and get some special release stuff which is cool. Their prices are decent, but are kind of high on the singles. Overall this is probably your best bet if you arenít close to Knightly Spirits.

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.

Nice enough place. The owner knows his stuff, but most of the other employees donít know the beer. Very nice selection. Not as much as Knightlyís, but great stuffmoderately priced. They have also well priced glassware, $3 for all standard sizes. If I canít get to Knightlyís this is my stop.

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.

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.
