Now with 350+ beers this is a must stop if you are in Brandon or even close to the Tampa Bay area. Good prices with a great selection of micros, Belgians, and other imports. The staff is very friendly and very helpful. The new owners have turned this into a great little store, and it keeps on getting better.

Great selection of rare and seasonal beers(DFH 120 IPA, WW stout, Raison D Extra, Olde School Barleywine, Pannepøt,Panil Barriquée (Sour), Scaldis Noel, DeuS, Avery Mephistopheles Stout, and The Beast Grand Cru Ale). Huge selection of American Micros and imports. Good prices with a very friendly staff that will try there hardest to find what you want. This place is a must stop if you are in Brandon and definitely worth the trip if you’re not.
I began patronizing "Kingdom" about 7 years ago and have never looked back. I have surely been in many a beer store over the years but this little hidden gem in Brandon is surely the overall best. You will not meet a more knowledgeable proprietor than Deepak. The guy has a memory like a steel trap when it comes to beer. He has detailed knowledge of his rather extensive selection and he somehow remembers all of your personal likes and dislikes. Whenever I go in, which is quite often he manages to lead me to several high quality brews. He has my personal taste memorized and he is rarely off the mark. If your looking for personalized and friendly service, hard to find and rare beer, a wealth of knowledge and great conversation, visit Kingdom Liquors.
Visited on 6/21/08. This has to be just about our favorite beer store in the Tampa area after just our first visit. Located in an unassuming strip mall near the Brandon Town Center Mall, the interior is well-maintained and very attractively arranged. It was apparent quickly that beer takes center stage here, as it is located on the main aisle, all along the back wall in the coolers, and just about everywhere that we looked. The bottle selection was so incredible that it took us quite a while to take it all in. Every time I looked around I saw something else that caught my eye or that I cannot find just about anywhere. Deepak (the owner), greeted us quickly and took us on a tour of the rarer beers in the store in between checking out other customers. We must have spent 30-45 minutes here, talking with Deepak, taking in the huge selection, and marveling at how he is able to stock some of the rare beers in his shop. Struise? De Dolle? Nogne O? Weyerbacher? De Proef? Dieu du Ciel? Mikkeller? Haandbryggieret? He has them all. And a lot of beers that we had never seen anywhere else we have traveled. It seemed that every few minutes Deepak would retreat to the cooler to dig out a rare gem that he had been waiting to sell to a fellow beer lover like himself. He sold us two of his rarest bottles on this trip, and we really appreciated Deepak’s attention throughout our visit. What a wonderful place to visit. This one is worth a trip from anywhere in Florida. In fact, Deepak indicated that he has a customer who travels from South Carolina once a month to stock up at his store. Yes, some of the prices might be a little high, but where else will you find this selection in central Florida (or anywhere else for that matter)? Excellent beer store with a dedicated, knowledgeable, friendly and approachable owner. Thanks, Deepak!
The service rating should go to eleven for this place. Deepak was extremely helpful in suggessting rare beer and really seemed proud of his selection. I noticed the he had Alchel and Konnings trappist beers and asked about Rochefort. He went to his stash in the back and snagged me one. I love this place.
This is a great store with top notch service. I have been coming here for about a year now and I consider myself a "regular". After reading the negative comment I had to say something. First of all the beer selection here is awesome and not everything is on the shelf. The owner is probably one of the nicest and most knowledgeable guys in the area. I’m glad to have certain beers put away for the folks who truly enjoy it and support the store on a regular basis. The owner is not all about the money and has a genuine respect for his customers. For someone to say "fuck this place" and bad mouth the store is just ignorant. Not everyone wants to make a quick buck and you get what you pay for. I highly recommend checking out this little gem in Brandon.
