You go here primarily for food (arguably the best products you’ll find in the area). Wonderful selection of cheeses, meats, spreads, and desserts (the pesto feta spread and homemade tiramisu are phenomenal). As far as beer, this selection is smaller, about two 8-foot aisles’ worth, but most of the top-quality beers available in Florida are here. Prices can quickly add up because every beer is a la carte; no reduced rate for buying a six-pack. This means you can mix and match a six-pack, however, which is always welcome. Service is very helpful but can be overbearing. They will try to sell you everything in the store. A warning if you purchase food: keep your eye on them as they measure out your food. Too often they will give you a much larger amount than you’ve requested and will charge you for this excess amount.
On vacation in the panhandle and had to stop due to posts on RB. This place is more of a deli/gourmet food market than a beer and wine store but the selection is fairly large and very good. I specifically hoped to locate some Oskar Blues Dale’s Pale Ale, Gordon, and Ten Fidy. None of which is available in Indiana. I was pleasantly suprised to find all three in stock. Good selection of regional beers as well as European and Belgians. The owner was working the cash register and was extremely nice. A bit pricey, but worth the stop.
I based my trip around visiting this store and was not disappointed. They have a great selection of beers although they are more expensive than other places I have been. Ask for Mike when you go. He was extremely helpful and knowledgable in all things beer. The store also has an excellent selection of food and coffee.
Good selection of beer. Food is very good. They have cold beer in the cooler that you can have a brew while looking for new beer or having with a great deli sandwich. The staff will help you find your favorite styles and can give you feedback on most of the beers in stock. A true beer lover doing the ordering is always good. A short trip from the Alabama coast if you are on vacation there.
huge rotating slection...over 750 differnt labels and more each week..the best selection i’ve seen between new orleans and tallahassee...deffently worth the drive...staff are happy to help and place custom orders...not just the ’weel see what we can do’ brush off...go see for your self..call and plan your trip around their new shipments...mixed case discounts!!
This is a good stop if you’re heading into Pensacola, only minutes from the airport. The place is a bit run down looking and some of the beers were hard to tell how fresh they were (will find that out as I drink some of the stuff this month), but the staff was friendly and helpful, although perhaps not beer gurus. You can mix and match anything you see and want. Good selection of Imports from weird international countries and Belgium and Germany. US Microbrews from Lakefront, Boulder, and the Florida micros were all there. I recommend you stop here first and if you have time head over to Chan’s on Bayou Blvd aftewards if you want to hit all the area has.
Frequent shopper, I get all my new beer at this store. The food is fantastic, and the staff is especially nice, and ready to recommend a good beer or wine to go with any food. There are plenty of samples, so stop in if you are in Pensacola.
Visited here back in June of ’03 - for a little international food store - had a great selection of hard to find brews for the area. Obviously a different distributor than what they have in Tallahassee. A few of the bottles were dusty and out of date - so look carefully. Lots of Abita, some Belgians such as the Huyghe line, some Indian River (Florida brewer). Worth a stop if crusing through Pensacola on I-10. Friendly owner.
