Best beer bar in Tallahassee. Stopped here to try beers I couldnt get at home and the bartenders were very helpful by letting me sample several beers. The selection was amazing with some rarities and BAs. Unique how its connected to a liquor store. If you are in Tallahassee you must stop here for a few.

Best, smoke-free selection in Tallahassee. New tap selections rotate in weekly to complement about 20 regular tap offerings. More Belgians than macros on tap. Wealth of American micros on tap. Plenty of bottle selections. Most are very reasonably priced. Liquor available for non-beer drinkers. Atmosphere can be upscale or collegiate. TVs to watch, but typically music playing from the speakers. Shares space with Liquor Loft store allowing customers to pick-up a 6-pack of what theyíve just enjoyed on their way out.

Without a doubt the biggest and best selection of beers in town. 50 taps that can include anything your taste buds desire. Its great to see a bar right smack in the middle of a college town with such a deep tap list. On the weekends and late at night this place can be packed out, but if youíre looking for a chill atomosphere be sure to check out their happy hour 5-7pm($1 off drafts, wines, liquors) any day of the week. No food available in the bar, but they allow you to bring in your own. Service is great, and staff is very knowledgeable about the beers on tap. Parking is a bit tight but you can park at the Chick-Fil-A or Starbucks next door. Also be sure to try the house brews, theyíre world class.

Aurelius  (118) Tallahassee, Florida | August 3, 2013| Updated March 17, 2014
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.

Proof is a great little bar tucked away in a mess of FSUís college bar scene. Brewery on site, that knocks out some superb brews, esp their Rye. Liquor store attached that sells almost zero macro, and a medium sized craft selection, but the selection is well varied. I frequent here several times a week. If youíre not of college age, donít worry. The college crowd doesnít show up until pretty late (9ish); so you easily find a seat and a bartender to chat beer with. Most of the staff is knowledgeable about most beer styles, and they certainly know the beers brewed in house.

Excellent selection for the area. Very chic and upscale. Plenty of seating. Great Brewpub. The only thing I would change would be the music. Just not feeling the techno while I enjoy my Arrogant Bastard Ale.

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.

The place for beer on tap in Tally. Nice location close to campus with tons of hotel options. Really nice selection for the area, you will not find these tap offerings elsewhere!
