This is a promising bar in a dreadful location. Great rotating tap selection downstairs, but if youíre here on a weekend after 9 PM, the place is overrun by obnoxious undergrads drinking Bud. Go for happy hour and then run away as fast as you can.

I liked the downstairs v. the upstairs - but then Iím an old man not trying to pick up grad students. The service is first rate. The selection is really good, they try to collaborate with other regional microbrewers, so thereís no telling whatís on tap at a given moment. Itís right next door to the bottle shop, which is a plus. Parking is tight - I didnít realize that they had the back parking lot for a long time. This is a place that I need to get to on a more frequent basis, but itís just inconvenient to my usual trafficking. If youíre in town for an FSU game, on a party weekend, then itís a must.

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

Very nice and modern atmosphere, friendly staff that definitely knows their stuff about the beer they have, especially the in house beers. The best selection in the area, hands down, with great prices, including a different $3 beer every night of the week. Awesome!

Service was terrible. Bar man was busy talking and didnít seem interested in the other customers. Beer was good but the selection was poor.

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 takeovers...so 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.

Proof definitely has a great beer selection at a very good price. However, the ambiance is not for adults. If you havenít grown up since your college days and you are still walking around in flip flops at 25 then this is the place for you. If you are comfortable getting up every time you want a drink and then reaching over the planted bar patrons shuttling one beer at a time to a friend like the old college days then this is really a great place. Definitely understaffed at times.

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.

50 taps, +\- 600 bottled beers, and a very good liquor selection. Definitely not your typical college town bar. The bartenders use correct glassware, are extremely knowledgeable, and are always willing to help patrons discover new brews.
