markwise (209) North of Tampa, Florida | February 1, 2009| Updated April 7, 2012
Update: this place gets better every time I go. Jimmy has an unmatched selection of vintage beers, meads, Florida beers, and seasonals. If it is not there, that means he is either sold out or it’s not available.
Wow. I was very surprised. I had heard mixed reviews about this place, and when I walked in I saw 3/4 of the elderly population of Dunedin buying vodka in bulk (weird), but in the back is the beer. Damn! They have a few seasonal finds, lots of Terrapin, Bell’s, Brooklyn, Belgians, Stone, Christmas Beers, Sour Beers, Jolly Pumpkin, etc. I was thoroughly impressed. They even had a vintage beer section (mostly picked through), but they had a lot of beers unavailable outside of bars in the Tampa area. The closest thing to Knightly Spirits in Tampa, with a beer section about as big- but more focus on American Micros. Prices are, for the most part, very reasonable. I will be back.
Visited first time Sunday January 29, 2017. Parking just outside. Large number of bottles and cans, plenty of imports, even saw some small Swedish breweries represented. Fast nice service. Decent prices on domestic beers, a bit steeper for the imports.
Very impressed with the number of bottles ... if I went here on my first v. 2nd to last day of my vacation, I would have spent a heck of a lot more $. Found a bunch of hard to find locals, some real well priced ’ specials’ and just a very nice selection.
Visited during RBWG 2015. An outstanding beer store - and liquor store overall. Tons of good beer on offer including a good amount of hard-to-find gems. Good prices. Friendly service. If you’re a beer geek, it would be difficult to come here and not leave with a few bottles. Highly recommended.
Visited twice during RBWG 2015. Nice selection of bottles along the mid-center aisle towards the back of the store and several endcaps. Good selection of locals and U.S. regionals, as well as imports. Some uncommon beers scattered around. Refrigerated stuff along the back wall. Gets a little cramped and awkward when workers are hustling around with new deliveries. Friendly service though mostly passive. Prices were mixed from good to slightly high depending on the beer. Worth a look if you’re in/near Dunedin.
Visited during RBWG. At first glance it looks like any typical strip mall booze joint. Then you stumble upon their beer selection and realize that this place is a bit special . The beer selection is massive and offers plenty of interesting stuff to keep even the most jaded of drinkers interested. Plenty of cool locals were offered alongside a tasteful selection of things from further afield. If I was in the shopping mood, I could have easily walked out with a few hundred dollars worth of quality stuff. Prices were decent, staff were preoccupied with other customers. Overall, definitely worth a stop if you’re passing through. Recommended.
