I took the drive to this place while I was staying at Eglin AFB and I am glad I did. The first impression of this store gives you the idea that it’s like any other bottle shop, but then you soon discover they have a tap system to try several beers and fill growlers. Their beer selection was amazing. The owner is from Atlanta and tries to get a lot of beers that you don’t normally find in Florida. The rarity of beers was impressive to me and I loved the selection of Terrapin and even Redlight Redlight Zwanze beers. The owner was extremely helpful and seemed truly passionate about the beers in his store. $200 later, I walked out of this place and I cannot wait to stop by there again.
This store had a good selection of craft beers and lots of wine, of course. The service was excellent. You can also buy growlers, but I didn’t get one. I will definitely come back.

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.
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.
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.
Stopped in here while on vacation to look for some good Florida beer, but was disappointed to find that their regional variety was pretty limited. They seemed to have a good selection from Terrapin Beer Co., but they only had two beers from Cigar City on the shelves, and not the staple beers (Jai Alai IPA) that that I figured they’d have. Having done my research on the FL beers ahead of time, I’d say their in-state selection makes up less than 5% of their overall selection, most of the rest consists of stuff you can typically find all over the country (Sierra Nevada, Bell’s, etc.). Anyhow, the guys in the store were very attentive, helpful, and seemed pretty knowledgeable. I don’t think this place is fantastic by any means, but having visited a good number of liquor stores in the Destin area, this place easily has the best selection.
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.
