Impressive place for a small store. Very nice selection of craft beer; not as much as the regular Luekens in Dunedin, but it is very nice. Knowledgeable beer guy was in the aisle and available. Good choices of Terrapin, Weyerbacher, Sweetwater, and many of the better available-in-Florida beers. I wouldn’t look for rarity or a major haul here, but for a run or a need this is definitely a good place to look.
Scattered but good selection of typical crafts and some harder to find belgians and one-offs. Got a Hanssens Kriek, a Prairie and a Pretty Things - amongst others. Prices varied, but there were relative bargains to be found.
The guy from the World of Beer by Hooter’s works here now. So if you liked talking to him there, here’s your chance to continue the tradition. Great selection of beer. Decent pricing. The people, besides the aforementioned, that work here don’t know much about beer. So you’ll be on your own. Which is nice.
Great selection of beer. Many of their beers seem to be items I can only find at this store. I appreciate the helpful service and the enthusiasm of the staff. I love buying from them and can’t say enough good things about them and their inventory.
Nice place. Good amount of space, good lighting, clean, they also have a small selection of cheese and a walk in cigar humidor. Beer selection is by far one of the better in the immediate area, prices are pretty reasonable as well. I get the feeling that there are not too many craft drinkers in the area as they have quite a bit of old inventory. Overall really good place to find a beer.
This place isn’t nearly so small anymore. They took over an adjacent space and seem to be looking to expand again. My most recent visit was after the expansion. It appears to be getting to half the selection you’ll find at the one in Dunedin. I found like four different Cigar City brews here as well as most of what you’re looking for in craft beer. Like the bigger one the prices are good and you’ll need to be careful picking through the beer that doesn’t age well. A very nice option to check that could save you a trip going another 10 to 15 minutes further west to the larger Dunedin location.
This is almost as good as Luekens dunedin. Plenty of cigar city, especially the ones that you cant find at total wine. Good craft singles section. This place and the Tap house is what makes Oldsmar a nice place to visit. I cant wait for the clearwater luekens to open. I heard it will have the biggest beer cooler in the Tampa Bay area.
