Another solid Total Wine location with a fairly large beer selection, including build your own six packs. There is not a whole lot to say with these large chain stores, but this is definitely one of the best beer selections in Orlando.

Good beer selection albeit spread across the giant store sporadically. Had a good selection of Bells, Victory and a lot of weird stuff like Laughing Dog and other bombers of weird things I have no interest in. Decent single bottles selection. Nothing like De Dolle or Struise that you find at Knightly Spirits. And fairly minimal Cigar City stuff it seems like. Maybe 5-6 different CCB bottles. BUT, I did find beer from Haiti here! Pretty difficult tick to procure. Also found Nicaragua and Guatemala beer ticks. Sweeet. Bought an Oak Aged Yeti and Victory Helios as well. So a nice place to stop by if you’re on your way to Redlight Redlight, but it isn’t a must go to place like Knightly Spirits on Orange Blossom Trail.
If YOU know what you’re looking for then this is the place to go. If you need help, go to Knightly Spirits. Their St. Bernardus, Three Philosophers, Dogfish, etc. is less expensive and they run coupons in the paper from time to time. I have found that the more time I have to browse the better the stuff I find. Their stockers make mistakes and mislabel and put beer int he wrong place. I realize I go to a wine store for beer and I have to do the legwork.
Awesome place, with lots of beers from everywhere in the US, UK, GErmany and Belgium specially and many other countries. Great prices and a lot of seasonals. They have samples of promotional breweries.
the service is there -if you ask for it- the check out girls are somewhat friendly if not dull. the selection is pretty darn good and the store seems well put togeather. they arent expensive but not especially cheap. a little cold like a big ass friggin walmart or target. but i guess they do all right. shit i bought about 12 different beers. if i didnt know what i was doin’ i mighta been up the creek!
Visited this store a few times in the last several months and given that I knew what I was looking for, it was generally a good experience. Total Wine does a nice job of keeping shelves stocked with decent beer at a decent price. The service is hit or miss, and on rare occasion, you might just find some gems on the shelves. But we typically visit these stores to stock up rather than shop for rarities. No complaints from the recent visits.
Total Wine & More is like an alcohol department store. Lots of wine, hard liquor and a couple rows of beer. One row is your singles and big bottles. The other row is six, four packs, etc and yes you can get some of the better stuff via six or 4 pack (at a far reduced price I may add). These are all warm and you can get cold beer in the back. They also have generic empty six pack cartons you can use to make your own variety six pack. The selection is pretty good too. I think anything can be purchased as a single. Prices seem to be reasonable and actually the cheapest in the area and I can imagine this place appeals to a wide range of drinkers. With any specific questions you won’t get the knowledge you would get over at Big C Liquors or Knightly Spirits though. Located off of Colonial Square near downtown.
