I can’t lie. As much as I try to support the little guy, I end up here quite a bit (it’s conveniently located to the in laws). It’s a warehouse format, with a staggering amount of options in any beverage format, and a none too shabby humidor. However, where big money definitely equals big options, you definitely lose the hands on knowledge in favor of a more wal-mart approach of stocking what’s popular, and the staff not having much idea of what they’re selling you (there are a few exceptions if you take the time to chat, but a lot of the staff picks tend to focus more on decent cheap liquor in quantity, rather than quality and knowledge).
Just like any other Total Wine; warehouse setting, friendly staff but not knowledgeable beer-wise, pretty good selection and have more local beers than I’ve seen anywhere else in Orlando, prices are average.
Oh Total Wine... your Fluorescent-lit aisles of bottles and frighteningly huge selection. So confusing. This place is great because there is almost always someone there who is very versed in beer, and they have a massive bottle selection with some obscure, fun stuff. You can get some decent kegs, some good 6 and 12 packs, and can spend hours perusing. Good prices for the most part, and good beer. Pretty good place for all the non-ambience. Of course, they are TOTALLY focused on wine (12 aisles vs. 3 for beer), so if you have a passion for old grape juice too, you can do well here.
coming from SW orlando on the way to redlight redlight this place was on the way. total dopplganger of the tampa location, super organized with sickening amount of wine. as far as beer, one of the best make your own 6 pack racks ive ever seen. another location that maintains the total wine level of quality.
Walked into this place a year ago before I got into craft beer and I was stunned. I had never been into a huge liquor warehouse like this and I thought I was in heaven. Selection is huge and the best part is their large collection of singles and their make-your-own 6 pack deal. Love it! Staff will help you out but they’re not experts. I’ll be finding myself here often!
Excellent selection of craft beers. Every time I visit there are new beers to choose from. Total stocks a nice selection of both domestics and imports, sixes, cases, kegs and 22 oz bombers.
Management has no problem with you breaking a six pack if you only want one beer, They just take the other five and put them on the single shelf.
My favorite place to shop in the Orlando area.
