This was the best bottle shop I went into in the Pensacola-Destin area hands down. Great selection including some genuinely unusual stuff, knowledgable staff, and well organized. Definitely worth a stop.
Visited for the first time 12/19/2013 or so. A little hard to find if you don’t know where you’re going, but that’s not their fault. Typical wine/liquor store ambiance. Well-lit, friendly workers, various signs and posters on the wall, etc. The staff was helpful and friendly, commented on my selections, etc.
I was pleasantly surprised by their selection. I am consistently surprised by places in Destin every time I visit for orchestra gigs. I will be making a stop here as I go by every time I visit for sure.
Nice setup for a liquor store with table set up for tastings and there little food market they have in the corner. Service was friendly but inattentive, no real help so can’t judge their knowledge. Selection was great, lots of stuff that I haven’t seen in other places. Did not try the food, but other people were there for that solely. Average value for the area with a 20% off shelf of out of season beer. Definitely worth a stop if you are passing through town, probably the best selection in the area.
Been here a few times on visits to the beach. They have wine and beer along with a meat/cheese deli. I was mainly looking for beer though and they have 200ish (never good at guessing). There were the usual micros available in FL with a lot of strange ones we don’t typically get over in Tallahassee -- Thomas Creek, Choc, Napa Smith and a new local appropriately titled: Grayton. Other notables for me were - several The Bruery, a few Brew Dogs, oak UnEarthly. They also had several singles I hadn’t tried from a strange mix of countries. Don’t think any of them were highly rated, but kudos for the range.

Decent store with a decent selection of cooled and warm beers, most of the bombers are sitting in the window being blasted with the sun all day long, though they have an overhang now that blocks some of it. All the craft is prominently displayed in the coolers and on the shelves. The macros are mostly hidden away in the beer cave - which is smaller now due to the addition of their overpriced bar. Decent selection of growlers to go, though I didn’t get any on my first few visits - and haven’t on subsequent visits as they somehow haven’t gotten any in from their supplier for almost a year now. Service has been declining, as well as friendliness. Selection is still decent if you like paying more than stores less than a mile down the road.
Very cool place. Nice layout. Easy to get in and out of the parking lot. Restrooms are very clean and stylish. Customer service is knowledgable and friendly. An excellent selection of craft brews: warm, cold, singles, packs. Some rare imports outside of usual distribution. Exciting to see what you might run across. Ample selection of in distribution hot beers: Sucks, Mephistopheles, etc. More meads, cuvées, and geuzes than I’ve ever seen. Prices are fair. There’s a wine bar where seating is available for sampling cheeses and wines. A cigar humidor is located on the opposite side of the wine bar.
Probably the best beer store in the Florida panhandle. Not a huge selection, but what is there is quite nice. Rogue, DFH, Great Divide, Rockies Brewing, a few Florida beers, and a decent selection of Belgians like Rochefort. See Ken when visiting.
Jesus christ what a fucken mess. Attached to their bar/restaurant The Craft Bar. Entrance to the shop is kind of hidden. As far as beer is concerned, it’s mostly just piled up around the store. They have a great selection, local, national, and international, but there’s no organization. A small fraction of the beer is refrigerated. No employee interaction while confusedly browsing the beer. Overall employees were very stand-offish. Prices are decent.
I’m only visiting the area, and I’ve had a better experience at the local Winn Dixie. I guess if you’re local and looking to score rare brewkis, this is the place to go for better or worse.
