Rerate 1/26/15 - Proximity to the growlers at Proof Brewing increases the value of the stop. Lots of off beat beers, good prices, wider variety of singles than when I rated them 7 years ago. Great service. I wouldn’t rate the Bottle Shop, by itself, as a must stop, but the proximity to Baby Proof makes for a two-birds-one-stone argument for the beer traveller. Formerly: Decent selection of beer, as good as any in town. A few off-the-path offerings, but nothing unheard of in Florida. A little on the pricey side. They don’t break 6 packs, but they do have a pretty nice selection of singles. Close to FSU campus, hard to get to from anyplace other than the west part of town though. Staff was very friendly and helpful. I did see the Ratebeer shelf talkers. I’d been dragging my feet getting over there, but the selection of Christmas/Winter beer closeouts made it worth the trip for me.

I was directed to this store by another liquor store (gotta love college kids’ loyalty). when I walked in, I was shocked. 400+ beers, tastings throughout the months, and the people that I met really knew their beer! A far cry from what I’m used to finding in the Tampa area. Stop in and enjoy their selection. Just in: Liquor Loft is adding on a LOUNGE to the premise. Expected within the next 4-6 weeks.

Phenomenal new liquor / beer store in Tallahassee that raises the bar for all other local establishments. Beautiful store layout and design, top-notch customer service and an endless selection of beer. Prices are far lower than other local stores - a must see!

Well....mixed emotions here. The location is easy to find, but hard to leave due to traffic. The staff was very attentive and almost followed me around, which is tough to do as the place isn’t that big. I think they have the potential for having a selection that is just sick. Unfortunatley I don’t think they keep stuff in stock as many people know about the place. I drove an hour to get there and picked up a few things. I would advise you to call ahead and ask what they have before you go. I think it is a great store and I came on the wrong day.

makes finding decent beer in college possible without haveing too leave the county. since i have had just about everything i want at market square i was getting bored in tally till this place showed up. staff was knowledgeable about beer which was nice, seletion was largest i have seen in the area, they had an entire pallet of belguims i had never seen but didnt have room on shelf for yet. 12 0z singles not avalable and price is kinda high BUT for a place that some how get distridution from everywhere its worth it. yea and they mentioned the owners getting a distrubution lisence which would mean three floyds and stone.... worth checking out if in area.

Rerate 10/15/07- Excellent new place in Tallahassee located near the FSU campus (Look for Starbucks on Tennessee). Nice, spacious and well lit. Has a huge cooler full of beer, a walk in cooler behind it and a small display shelf for the remainder. All the common Belgians are here with a few surprises I had not had yet, wide selection of German commons, British ales, and a solid representation of west coast /Colorado micros - Left Hand, Avery, Mad River, Rogue etc - which is a nice change in this neck of the woods. Some Northeast micros making a show now too - Stoudts, Dogfish and the Midwest is chiming in - Bell’s, and Jolly Pumpkin. Spoke with the owner/manager and he says he is working on getting some more Bell’s, 3 Floyd’s, Victory and possibly Stone, etc. He is very familiar with the beer scene and what’s available - even has Ratebeer shelf talkers in place. 12 oz singles are now available - some are a bit pricey though - for example Green’s an organic from Belgium with very low ratings was $6.50 a bottle - others were more reasonable at $2.25 per. This will become a regular stop for me. If you are in town for a game - check them out.
