This is where I bought most of my beer on a recent trip to Daytona Beach, Florida. A funny looking sign was advertising "gourmet beers," which really meant above average craft beer.
Service was not so great as the woman who served us was awkward and stand-offish. To my amazement, she requested my girlfriend's ID simply because she was with me!
Despite the underwhelming service, the selection was adequate. Flying Dog Doggy Style Pale Ale and Tire Bite Golden Ale, Rogue American Amber and Mocha Porter, Sierra Nevada ESB and Wheat, Great Divide Titan IPA, Sam Adams White Ale, Guinness 250, and Brooklyn Brown Ale were among the better offerings. There were also some good Belgians like St. Bernardus Abt 12 and Delirium Tremens. Second trip they had Ommegang Hennepin, SN Summer Fest, Lagunitas PILS, and Magic Hat #9.
What I like about this store is the fact that you can take single bottles from six packs and the labels display the two prices. Definitely something the LCBO should pursue. Along with Bottle Caps, Mr. Dunderbak's, and Ormond Wine Co., this is one of the go-to beer stores in the Daytona area. Worth checking out.

This store is still open,but ABC has a new store that opened at 1198 DunlawtonAve. in Port Orange that has better selection of craft beers.I picked up singles today of RedBrick/Oktobeerfest,Red Brick/Porter,Laughing skull/Amber Ale,Terrapin/Rye Pale Ale,Thomas Creek/OBP2,DFH/Raison D'Etre,Breckenridge/Vanilla Porter,CCB/Maduro Brown Ale and a 22 of Hopping Frog/Outta Kilter Wee Heavy Scotch Red.Many more to pickfrom,about 100 different types I would say.Ask to tlk to Les,he is the Manager and very knowledgable about all the beers that they carry and he can tell you where you might find other flavors you are looking for.Mike

I've not finished looking but this is the only retail establishment that has <i>something</i> worthwhile. But, in the last 4 years that selection seems to be dwindling. Yes, you can find something -- just not a lot of breadth. A reasonable selection of belgian and belgian style. NorthCoast's mid abvs are rep'd. Why is Florida so sparse for quality beers? I get that heat kills an appetite for big beers -- so why isn't there more emphasis on Weizens? Yeah, big whoops Blue Moon. Don't forget Floridas alc distribution is comparatively worse that New York's too. C'mon...

My 4th stop on my trip to Florida.
Daytona being not too far from New Smyrna, i decided to check out a couple of places and found this one.
Store obviously weighs on the wine and spirits but there is a decent selection of beers. About half are refrigerated and the rest at room temp. Lagunitas, Lost Coast, Redhook, Kasteel and St-Bernardus are some of the beers available. I got some Kasteel Triple and Lagunitas Censored.
I came twice here, service was nice the first time and a bit standoffish the second time so i guess it depends when you come. They let you break 6packs so that was good.
Overall, nothing exciting, but seeing as how i wasn't too far, it filled my need for some good beers, nothing more.
