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 you’re really into beer. If you don’t want to deal with a crowd, then don’t go to a bar in a college town at 11pm on a Friday.

If you are either visiting or simply stuck in Tallahassee, this is the best beer bar in town. Most of the staff know their beer and are typically friendly and welcoming. The 28 taps rotate pretty regularly and there is a good selection of bottles as well. A lot of cask and other special beer events happen on a pretty regular basis. A second RateBeer tasting is coming up soon. Proof leads the way and sets the standard in Tallahassee. The only downside...it can get quite crowded later at night and, given its proximity to FSU, become something of a college bar but if that helps bring in special beers and keep prices reasonable, then it is well worth it. Then again, that might be to some folks liking. That is one of the nice things about Proof, it has a pretty eclectic crowd and is a fav of many different groups of folks. No food but a number of places will deliver and the staff have menus available.

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.

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 they’ve 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 you’re 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, they’re world class.

No food, but great beer. Wide selection of guests and an ever changing set of their own. Upstairs has s sports bar feel with I very large TV. Downstairs feels more like an industrial pub. Near campus so sometimes the crowd is loud.

Proof is a great little bar tucked away in a mess of FSU’s 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 you’re not of college age, don’t worry. The college crowd doesn’t 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.
