70 AMBIANCE 4/5 SERVICE 7/10 SELECTION 9/15 FOOD N/A VALUE 7/10 OVERALL 15/20
Wine shop and restaurant with a nice beer selection. Mostly singles in coolers as well as some non-chilled singles. Build your own 6 or 4 packs. Selection includes some imports including standard Belgians (e.g., chimay). Also a nice domestic craft selection such as Victory and Cigar City. The selection is not huge, but they have a few nice choices. We didnít eat here, but the menu looked good - somewhat upscale, in line with the wine theme. Service was attentive and helpful. A good choice for craft beer in the area.

After searching high and low for good beer stores in and around Daytona, I finally stumbled upon Ormond Wine Co., located about 2 minutes from where we were staying.
Atmosphere is upscale, wine bar decor, very clean and well-organized, with cellars along the walls and a sizable beer fridge in the middle of the store. At first glance I thought the selection would be decent at best, so I was shocked to find a fairly wide array of good to world class offerings.
I grabbed the Boulder Mojo IPA, Left Hand Milk Stout, Hitachino Japanese Classic Ale, Lost Coast 8 Ball Stout, Stone Oaked Arrogant Bastard and 13th Anniversary Ale, Flying Dog Double Pale Ale, Avery Salvation, Franziskaner Dunkel, Smuttynose "Finest Kind" IPA, Bellís HopSlam, Delirium Tremens, and Spaten Optimator, among others. Everything is affordable and in total I would say they carry 80 craft beers and imports, most of which are superb.
Service is friendly and helpful - the black-haired guy made great recommendations on my first trip and the blonde tanned lady was more than happy to grab me some empty six-packs on another visit.
As Iíve mentioned in my other reviews, Wine Co. is one of the top beer destinations in the area, along with Bottle Caps, McKís Tavern, Mr. Dunderbakís, and Shores Festhaus. If youíre looking for excellent beer in Ormond, Daytona, or Port Orange, this is a place to consider.
