My favorite place to stop by when I am in Tally. They have a very solid selection of beer, mostly broken into singles. They do especially good job keeping Florida beers in stock, though I would like to see a bit more Cigar City. The staff are great. They know their stuff and will talk shop with you. They have made excellent recommendations. Great little beer shop.

Right next door to Proof and sharing the same owners, this place has great operating hours (even Sundays at noon or so lol) and great staff! In fact, some of ratebeerís own work here so if you are in town and a fairly active ratebeerian, shoot drowland a PM to see whatís up. The store at first looks like it doesnít stock beer at all- just a typical liquor store! You have to walk into the back and to the left are a series of refrigerators stocking your normal Bud Light stuff all the way to Orval, St Bernardus, Terrapin, Left Hand, Highland, Cigar City, Sweetwater, Bells and more. Lots of singles to choose from, which is very nice if you want to try a variety of things. Prices were pretty good. Orval is $3.99, Bells singles were $1.99, Saison Dupont 750s were $7.50. Good place to stock up on fresh Jai Alai. Picked up Dupont Avec les bon Voeux here i.a. and it was awesome. Great place for beer in Tallahassee. I never went to Fermentation Market so I canít compare selections. Customer Service.....depends on who is on staff that day! I lucked out and got a fellow ratebeerian which was pretty cool. Probably the best thing about having a ratebeerian as staff is you can get the straight up: "nah, that beer sucks." or "that beer isnít that fresh." Cheers to our expanding ratebeer community!

Our very own Drowland works here so BM him before you stop in. Really nice selection of south eastern brews with a pretty good import selection.

Definitely the place to visit in town for your beer needs. Always has the newest products in stock. Carries the widest variety of beer available to Tallahassee by far.

Great selection. This place has beers that you simply cant find anywhere else. The build your own sixpack is a little expensive for my taste. They must have a hefty markup vs. the per bottle price of a sixpack. Staff is farily knowledgeable, but limited in actual experience. They also tend to hover while you are shopping. This place is close to campus and the attached bar tends to attract the college crowd, so I have to assume they have some theft issues. Maybe thats why they charge so much for the singles? Anyway, I can easily go here and blow $100, but having someone watching me to make sure I am not stealing gets old real fast, so I try to get in and out quickly. This store has my favorite selection in town, but is not my favorite place to shop.

Liquor Loft is the best place in Tallahassee for craft beer without a doubt. The staff is extremely knowledgeable and always willing to help you find anything youre looking for at the drop of the hat. They make an honest effort to greet and help every customer that walks in the door. The selection of beer is centered on Belgians(many that can be hard to find) and American craft. Also a healthy mix of English German and south American beers with some others thrown in. Singles selection is great and priced well beer by beer. If they dont have what youre looking for they can try and order it for you. All around the best beer place to happen to Tallahassee

Solid bottle shop, new stuff in all the time. Only thing that really getís me is that I canít get singles of everything (no pulling from the cooler). Hop down to Market Square if thatís what you like to do.

By far the best Bottle Store in Tallahassee, and you never have to worry about how old the IPA you are buying is. Only thing I can say negative is that the prices are up there if you just buy singles. As I said before, the best in Tallahassee.

A nice place for Florida, clean inside and well stocked. I was expecting more from the selection considering the "excellent" rating (whereís all the Cigar City?), and Iíd rather see more unrefridgerated stuff so I can bring them home. The price of some of the singles are a little high, and again, when you spend over $100 some sort of deal should be available, if not just a free glass.

I am honestly glad I stopped here on my way home from Orlando. I cannot stress to you how awesome this place is. Atmosphere: The place is small but adequate for the product they have. Iím pretty sure they had wine and liquor but honestly didnít check as I was only interested in the beer which was around the corner. Quality: GREAT selection. If it is available in Florida these guys do their damndest to get it in. I saw Southern Tier, Terrapin, Victory, Magic Hat and all sorts of other beers. Service: These guys were amazing. The two employees that were there were very engaging and extremely knowledgeable about the product. Even made great recommendations. I left to eat lunch next door and came back to take pictures for my blog and they ended up calling Byron who came down to the store. Very cool! Selection: As I said earlier, EXCELLENT. Perhaps worth skipping anything in the Panhandle to make a trip over here. They showed me the bar next door, Proof and oh my God it was awesome. About 25 beers on tap and they were great. I even saw some Swamp Head beer which is new to the area.
