I really wanted to love this place, so well thought out and so much to offer, but the lack of customer service killed it for me. The bar opens at 5, I was outside waiting for 90 minutes and when they opened, didnít decide to let me know. The upstairs is trendy, almost lounge like. Staff was good, but not really helpful. When I saw people disappearing with bottles in their hand I asked what was going on. There was a bottle share in the other part of the bar. No sign or indication this exists. Different taps as well. I head down and am very happily surprised by a nice basement geek bar. People sharing bottles and a much more adventurousness tap list. Bartender was involved in geek bottle share and after so many clues, let me sit alone. I have had much worse bars make sure i was involved and had a good experience than this, too bad. On the up side beer is good and cheap.

The Proof crew does tastings every Friday at the bar and ratebeer folks and other enthusiasts are welcome to join as long as you pony up some good large or small format bottles to share that arenít readily available in Tallahassee. Make sure you PM jbruner before joining up for a tasting and get stuff worked out- DONíT drop in and expect to mooch off the rating crew. As for Proof itself, it is a large, dark, open space with large screen TVs for watching games so it is a sports bar of sorts but with a focus on craft beer. Large number of taps were sporting leftovers from various beer events so they were Stone and Dogfish Head tap hard to rate selection here though they did have Cigar City on tap before and a pretty deep bottle list that includes things like Sam Adams Utopias (also can be found at Fermentation Lounge but more expensive). Staff is attentive, knowledgeable, and a few are ratebeerians themselves so it can be quite fun having a beer bar run by ratebeerians of sorts. Cool vibe; didnít just visit here on a random night and chill so my experience is atypical since I was visiting friends and joining a tasting group. Regardless, pretty cool that such a bar even exists that lets you have a tasting inside on your own terms. Sweet gig- a must for any beer nerds in Tallahassee and without a doubt in a safer feeling part of town.

UPDATE: Now this place has their own house beers and is a legit brewpub making this a much more interesting destination. Have tried two of their house beers and the quality is very high.

Nice bar. I was there too early in the day, but the owner(Byron) took me in and showed me around and even let me sample some beer. Nice chunk of taps, rotating selection and a really nice bar overall. This is what I would build if I were building a beer bar. They have lots of liquor too.

Proof is a special far my best find on the last night of a 3000 mi road trip from central FL to KC/OK, and back past the Gulf beaches. I love the on the walls...and especially the downstairs bar (very cool vibe down there). The beers are very good...and well worth a special visit...I would recommend any craftbeer fans from the northeast or Midwest passing near Tallahassee on their way to say Cigar City...include Proof in your adventure! Also, go the bottle shop next door and the brewery tasting room not far away (make sure to get a Crowler or two!)

Finally made my way into the newest hot spot in Tallahassee. Very impressed. They have 28 high quality taps and well over 100 bottles to choose from. A few wines thrown in for good measure and a full bar featuring a lot of the latest premium liquors. Tap selection includes several Stones, some Weyerbacher, Bells, Rogue to name just a few of the American micros on hand, a handful of Belgians and a few English commons to round it out. All very reasonably priced - many of the the pints are $3.50 and some of the bottled bombers are only $7.99. Impressive array of proper glassware as well. Clean, modern. smoke free environment with plenty of room to move around and the music does not drown out your conversation. Donít let the location near campus scare you away - this place is a must visit if in the area. Pickup a few bottles to go next door in the Liquor Loft as well.

Lots of taps with a very respectable selection of beers on tap and in bottles. Large flat screens provide a sports bar atmosphere. The 2020 FIFA World Cup was in full swing on this day and the place was very crowded and spirited. The owner, Byron, and his wife could not have been more friendly and welcoming. I donít visit the panhandle of Florida much, but when I do, here I will be.

Nice little bar attached to a liquor store. Met up with some local raters from Tallahassee while in town. Very nice selection of beers on tap in bottles. I believe the only downside was the lighting, its a bit dim for proper rating. Service was excellent and the help knows beer.

50 taps and hundreds of bottles. Other rates are going to complain about parking and the college scene. This is somewhat true, but the fact remains that this bar has the best selection of the best beers available in Tallahassee. That is all that matters if youíre really into beer. If you donít want to deal with a crowd, then donít go to a bar in a college town at 11pm on a Friday.

Brew pub, club, bottle shop all in one. Solid beers, plentiful guest taps, above average bottle selection. Impressive.
