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!

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. Itís smoke-free and has large flat screens for sports fans. Depending on the day and time the vibe can be a beer loverís haven or a college pickup joint or something in between. Byron and Angela go the extra mile for customers so if thereís something you want but donít see, ask. If itís available in Florida theyíll try to get it for you.

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.

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: itís in the college area. After about ten oíclock 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.

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.

By far the best selection of craft beer in the Tallahassee area. Rotating taps of always great beer.

Fairly non-assuming and small looking building located near the FSU campus. The crowd on a Saturday night mostly consisted of college students or twenty something year olds. The upstairs area that we went to (apparently thereís a downstairs?) was quite modern and trendy. Certainly has a lounge feel to it. The selection of their own beer and other fairly common microbrews was excellent. They had about a dozen of their beers on tap as well as a couple guest taps. At least 20 microbrew bottles. Service was just normal, nothing special. Their prices are pretty good. Most beers were $5. Overall this is definitely a must visit if in the area.
