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.

Proof is the best beer bar in Tallahassee. Thirty or so taps that are rotated regularly. They have done well to bring in newly available micros and hard to find one offs. My only complaint is the same as many others: it’s in the college area. After about ten o’clock I have to get out of there. Luckily (or unluckily) my opportunities to drink come earlier in the evening and at that time Proof is spacious and comfortable. One suggestion: open at noon on weekends. There is no place in town with good taps that opens during the day. Me and the old lady need a place to get some good brew before hitting the early bird special at the sizzler.

Great bar best in Tallahassee. Tap selection is top notch, constantly rotating with something for almost all tastes. Staff is knowledgeable, friendly and attentive. Bottle selection could be better but I have heard that a new one will arrive very shortly. Wednesdays are great. with several good drafts for only three bucks. Usually a pretty fun happy hour crew, and a great night life spot.

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.

Brewfus  (10) tallahassee, Florida | December 18, 2010
28 taps, a chill atmosphere,awesome pint specials and a bottle selection of about 200....what more could you want? Throw in an extremely knowledgeable staff and your beer always being poured into proper glassware and this place cant be beat! They also have market launch parties for local breweries and 100% legit cask ale nights with stuff like triple dry hopped ruination or Christmas spiced improv from CCB. Prices are great and even better on kill-the-kegs wed. where you can get EXTREME deals on some draft options ( I had cup’o kyndness for 3 dollars a pint) See for yourself you wont regret it.

Pretty much the place to come in Tallahassee, 29 Taps of all craft except for the occasional Coors Light. Bartenders are great and know their beer, the only issue is parking and the location makes it difficult to get in and out. By far the best selection in Tallahassee, anything that the town gets Proof will have. Wednesday $3 Pints are a great way to get something you like on discount, they have Arrogant Bastard on that every once and a while, always makes for a good night. They get things that other places in town just don’t get. Proof has had a number of imitators pop up in town but they are still one of the best. Sometimes late at night it gets way too crowded with the undergrad taint, but earlier in the evenings is wonderful. EDIT: Sometimes things that are "rare" in Tallahassee can get a bit pricey, and once again, you need to come early if you want to enjoy a pint without being bumped up against drunken coeds.

The widest beer selection in the area. 28 taps with only a single macro (Bud Light or PBR) most of the time. Stone, Cigar City, and Oskar Blues are regular taps along with a wide assortment of Belgians, other American craft beers, and some Brit imports. It’s smoke-free and has large flat screens for sports fans. Depending on the day and time the vibe can be a beer lover’s haven or a college pickup joint or something in between. Byron and Angela go the extra mile for customers so if there’s something you want but don’t see, ask. If it’s available in Florida they’ll try to get it for you.

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 don’t visit the panhandle of Florida much, but when I do, here I will be.

Had the Tally tasting here. Great bar, although was very loud for the World Cup. The craft beer bar has college kids. Interesting. Anyway, the ambiance is like an upscale beer bar with lots of open space for milling. The service was Johnny-on-the-spot and was very cool. Great taps and selection including Jai Alai and Maduro from CCB. Seems like they have some of the best beer in Tally. If I was around Tally, I would hang out here.
