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.
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.
Well I was a bit disappointed by this. While the selection is large, its just not very good. For some brewers, like Ballast Point, the selection was pretty good, but on the whole it was a lot of mediocre beers. Scattered organization too. If they could only put as much thought into their beer organization as they do in the wine section. Didn’t factor into my rating; the bu the bourbon selection was esp disappointing. The little liquor stores near my house have a better selection in that regard.
OK, obviously ambiance is not very high as it is basically a warehouse type setup. The service is eager to please, but the problem is nobody there knows anything about beer. The beer selection is very good, and most are available as singles. There’s nothing super rare, but the overall selection does beat out 95% of stores in the area. Only store I have seen with a better beer selection in the area is Knightly Spirits. Pricing on most items is excellent, and they do mess up in your favor on occassion, though people snatch up the errors very quickly. This is my main beer/liquor store, as its very close to my house, but I’ll still make the trek out to Knightly for the really good stuff.
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.
Huge store with a lot more than beer. They sell very little swill and have tonnes of craft. Way too much to even sort through on one visit.Excellent prices given it is Orlando....many smaller private guys were much more expensive.The teller was helpful, and floor service is present and know their stuff. Must visit.
Ambiance, I’ve said it before, its the walmart of alcohol. The employees although friendly don’t really know about anything they sell. Selection although large, there’s nothing really that hard to find. Knightly Spirits still has that market cornered! It close to my house, so if i’m in a jam and need something, i’ll hit it up. And occasionally they’l screw up on their pricing and you can get some steals!
