They used to have a much bigger selection of crafts, but it’s recently shrunk a lot. They’ve still got a large selection, but the whole large bottle section is gone, thereby losing a lot of really cool seasonals. Still a decent spot, but there are better in town.
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.
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).
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.
