Fairly good beer selection. You could spend a lot of time there browsing. However, no matter the length of time I spend there I always leave with about three beers total (usually, at other stores, itís about 10 and Iím dying to come back for more). I should leave with more beers, way more... considering that every time I try to check out the manager has to be called to personally check my out-of-state I.D. Then both staff members (the cashier and the manager) will examine an out-of-date Driverís License picture book only to take five more minutes to decide whether they should let me check out or decline my proof of age. The whole process takes about seven minutes, which is tortureous. Bonus points for selling lots of individual 12oz. bottles, though. #18 on 25102009, DG.
Its the same as any other Total Wine Ive evr been too. Huge warehouse full of alcohol. The staff knows a few basics about beer, but if you asked about most of the individual bottles theyíll just make it up half the time. They definitely carry a big selection althugh more than half is shite. Nothing really rare or tough to find, but if your looking to go get a six pack of old favorites, its a decent place to go.

Second best selection of beer in Florida. I like the store. Itís big, but well-kept and organized. The personnel know far more about wine and liquor than beer, but I really have no questions. Most beers available in the singles isle or the singles cooler, but theyíll allow you to break absolutely any six or four pack. Lots of Belgians, Western European ales and Eastern European lagers. A good selection of American craft beer, relatively speaking. Good cigar selection. Itís cool to be able to pick up a bottle of Orval or a sixer of Kalamazoo Stout only two miles from work.
Ambiance, what can i say its the walmart of alcohol. Service, the girl who rang us up was incredibley rude to us and those behind us (it was quiting time and we were in the way). Selection is large but no rare beers.
Go there for the selection and the prices. As far as the beer, Iíve seen better selection in smaller places in NY and CT, but still way better than anything else near by. Tequila, scotch, rum and bourbon selections are good, not great, and wine selection is fantastic. Why isnít there a better selection of Cigar City beers here?
Really impressive selection, including good Belgian style beers made exclusively for Total Wine (e.g. Cuvee Euphorique, Cuvee Mystique, Cuvee Diabolique) by de Proef. I think the Boomgarde fruity beers are also made by Liefmanís just for them. Good selection of Rogues, Left Hands, Great Divides, St. Bernardus, Val-Dieu, Ommegangs, DFH (including WWS and díExtra), Flying Dog, Mendicino, Avery (including the Grand Cru and the Beast), Boon, díAchouffe, Kwak, des Rocs, British and German beers. The website claims around 1000 beers...Iím not sure, but there was more than enough to keep most beer geeks happy! Mostly warm on shelves, but several coolers also. Big store with decent prices - significantly better than ABC Store or Whole Foods nearby.
