Realized I have never updated this, not in 7 years. Pats remains a store that continually amazes me and frustrates me. I remember back in 2008 they had 7 year old bottles of Bert Grantís IPA on the shelf, rotten but still for sale - alongside hard to find Fantome. They have made a big effort in the last year or so to increase the total amount of space dedicated to beer and have tripled their selection, and I had been tempted to rate them higher, but it turns out, you still need to be careful and look at dates. Bought a sizer of Uinta Hop Nosh without even thinking I should look at the date, and well, now I have a bunch of stale old flabby beer I donít want to drink. I guess this place is fine if youíre buying bigger beers that can stand to age, or you use their draft and growler fill system which is very cool even if the selection is nothing to get over-excited about (and slightly over-priced, as is pretty much all their beers). Generally speaking I can do almost as good at the ABC down the road and spend less.

I try to buy local, so I went here. I was pleasantly surprised by the huge selection. However, they do not take care of the stock. Bought one six pack that was heavily oxidized. When i went back I found several beers that were on the shelf WAY past their sell by date. I brought it to the attention of the staff they shrugged it off. The offered me a deal on a case of New Belgium Tripel. I bought it only to get it home to find that the case expired on the same day. (Should have known.) These guys donít do enough business to keep all these beers on the shelf and they are not rotating their stock as the should. Beware.

NIce place to rest in bottle capital. Hundreds of different beers and nice prices. Seasonals, trappists and reasonable prices.

Nice selection of beers. Plenty of beer on the shelves and plenty in the coolers, too. Patís recently opened up some more space and devoted it to beer. They have plenty of singles on the shelves and donít mind if you break a six pack to purchase a single.
They stock several bombers and have a nice mix of import and domestic brews. Patís is located down the street from the University of Central Florida, and most of the patrons appear to be students. They do a nice keg business.
One thing you have to look out for is the age of the beer. If youíre looking at singles, always see if there is a "born on" date, or "best drank by" date.
Overall itís a decent place for picking up craft brews at a reasonable price.

I admit my expecations were a little low but this place isnít bad at all. Selection was pretty good with some of the usuals and quite a few I was surprised to see. Prices seemed pretty good on bigger bottles and too high on singles (12 oz) and six packs. But they do offer a single 12 oz price on most of their stock. Problem is itís not as good as Big C Liquors and there are similar places on the same road, right by UCF, such as Shamrock Beverage & Liquors. Anyways, if youíre in the area youíll find something good but be sure to check out Big C too.
