A must stop for buying beer if in South Miami. On corner of Sunset & Galloway (87th Ave). Long-time establishment with good reputation. Has wine, spirits, and a new meat/cheese area. Solid selection with emphasis on USA and Belgium. Very few macros. Prices can be high but service is good.

A decent selection, the beer guy is nice. Parking is awkward. They have some deli stuff as well. OK store.
Great beer shop, about 20 minutes south of central Miami. Great selection of american microbrews, mixed with quite a few different european beers. Precis wera bit up and down, but I got the Wordl Wide Stout very cheap, for instance. The shopkeeper accused me of not buying enouth Lagunitas beers... :-)
Les prix sont un peu haut en comparaison avec le total wine mais la sélection n’a rien à y envier. J’ai été accueilli par un vieil amoureux de la bière qui me donnait l’impression d’être un ancien bluesman aigri. J’y ai trouvé quelques joyaux.
Fabulous selection of beers -- and not just US microbrews. They had a fine porter from Finland and beers from other corners of the globe as well. Very helpful staff. Picked up some Cigar City brews and some other (for me) hard to find beers.
A liquor store in an unsuspecting part of town, dark and cool inside and the isles are kind of tight. But the selection is much better than I was expecting from the outside, lots of hard to find stuff, some of it can be old, good or bad depending on the type of beer. A little pricier than some other places I’m used to, but not too crazy. Great place hidden away in a mess of Miami strip mall type liquor stores.
The store lies fight on the corner. The doors are on that corner. The beers are a bit on the pricey side. They carry a pleasant selection of mead & sake as well. DFH’s big beers, Rogue XS series, cute Belgians and some other hard to find styles. It si pretty far south but a must stop for RBians!

Wow, Fantastic selection of beers. More beers that I have not seen in this store than in any other in Miami so far, and the best plus is that they sell proper glassware- I bought a Tremens glass for $7.99 and they had a limited edition St. Bernardus bottle that was three feet tall/ six+ liters for $250. A great place to spend hours in with an I phone set to Ratebeer.com
Has to be said, this is a somewhat unfair rating. Selection is broad, but odd. Staff just pointed me towards the most expensive beer when I said I wanted something special. My wife asked if they had anything by Brooklyn apart from the Summer Ale on shelf and he asked if she thought they kept it hidden...! That said, they had tons of stuff from DFH, Victory, The Bruery and even Stone. Found the 10th anniversary Ruination here, along with some other good stuff.
