This was the first major place to open up in Ft Myers after ABC and it was soo terribly needed. I remeber trying to find good beer down there was a nearly impossible task and if you did manage it was like a miracle. Along comes the bldg of a total wine right after I move. So I go down for a wisit and I am blown away. They have more here then I ever thought was available in Ft Myers,. Soo many belgians, and import it was rediculous., S outh Florida seems to get more then there fair share of imports sometimes and this was not execption. I would easily say this is the stop if you are there,. The highlight of my trip to ft myers as far as beer, now we had to make our way over to visit the friends on the east coast and try and hit a few stores and bars as well!

Here in the northwest Atlanta suburbs, we have a Total Wine. I would probably not put it in the top 5 beer stores in the area. So to the locals in Fort Myers, maybe there are better beer options. To the tourist, it's an oasis.
Lots of beer available at singles. Highlights for me included Bell's, Penn, Steelhead, Kona and New England breweries. Some beers from Florida breweries too but none from the Belgian-style brewery Saint Somewhere. All beers were kept in good shape and I didn't see any turnover problems.
Service was polite but I didn't need any help picking out beer. For the out of towner, the selection was fantastic. I can't imagine any place in the area having better.
If you're stuck beerless at the beach, take a trip out and pick up some supplies.

Located in a newly built strip mall at the intersection of two busy highways. Enormous "superstore"; the largest liqour-wine-beer store I have ever been to. Must have been over 20,000 square feet.
Most of one aisle the length of the store devoted to beers; mostly stored at room temp. All of the macros available in the coolers plus Sam Adams, Red Hook, some large bottle Belgians. Their ads claim "1000 beers" but I'd say they were about 700 short of a grand. Still, an impressive selection, especially for Florida. Wide range of Belgians, British, some German and most of the larger U.S. craft brewers. Shelf space for about 8 DFH but only 3 in stock. Also stocked Ommegang, Great Divide, Avery, Bell's, North Coast, Unibroue, Goose Island etc. Very few of the "small" craft brewers were stocked [e.g. Three Floyds, Thomas Hooker etc.]
Most impressive were the reasonable prices. Lowest I've encountered for DFH, anywhere. Four packs of 90 minute IPA were $6.99. Four pack of North Coast Stock Ale for $7.99. Everything also available as singles or build your own six packs.
Service was not much of a factor. Most employees were engaged in re-stocking or check outs. Most of them also seemed to be new and not very well informed about beer. It didn't matter to me since I could see what they had and whether or not it suited me.
Very glad I visited. Total Wine is a chain with stores up and down the East Coast.

Total Wine is what it is. A store with a pretty decent selection at pretty damn good prices that are pretty hard to beat. You are not going to find any hard to find rare offerings, but they do carry most of the basics from the big breweries and some of the smaller locals at very reasonable prices. Most of the employees working there no nothing about beer, but the store is always clean and the isles are typically well stocked. Overall, Total Wine is no where near the best store in town but it is easy and convenient especially if you know what you want going in to it. As mentioned, don't go in looking for stuff you have never seen before, but it is a nice place to stock up with the essentials.
On a side note, make sure to check the dates on the bottles (if applicable) because I have noticed some beers on the shelves that are past their "best by" date.

This is a pretty well stocked Total Wine in the Ft. Myers area, just about everthing Florida can get minus the imports is well represented in here. The service is down right horrible as in all the Total Wine's, what do you expect its a corporate setting. I am not reviewing the wine section only the beer which is nicely stocked, well organized, and not picked over as in other Total Wine's that I have visited. Managers should take note of these stores, some of the Total Wine's look like they are going out of business, with the uninspired picked over selections.

I would definitely recommend Total Wine to anyone in the Ft. Myers area. It has an excellent selection of beer, wine and liquor. While they don't have the amount of beers that they claim, they still have around 300-400. The best feature is their Build Your Own Six-Pack where you can pick basically any of the beers they sell and mix and match to perfection. I made a six-pack of Sierra Nevada brews and it was under $9 after tax. You really can't beat that. They offer a great variety of kegs in the back as well. They range from inexpensive to top of the line, so chances are they have what you are looking for. I'm no wine connisseur but their selection is huge. Same goes for the liquor which seems cheaper than the local liquor stores. Overall, I'd say they are doing an excellent job although the service could stand to improve.
Review updated 10/15/10 after moving back to Fort Myers:
By far the best selection in the area. This is my go to place for beer in Fort Myers. With a lack of good beer bars in the area, a place like this is essential. There are a few drawbacks, however. The service isn't great and the overall knowledge of beer is lacking. Another major sticking point for me is out of date beer. They consistently stock beer that is past the freshness date printed on the bottles. I'm not talking Imperial stouts, I'm talking about pilsners and IPAs - beers that shouldn't be consumed past the point of freshness. This takes a few points away from service in my opinion. I guess it's really up to the distributor but it still frustrates me to see undrinkable beer on the shelves. Ok, I'm done ranting. Overall, Total Wine is a good place to find beer in this area. You can't find a better selection within 50 miles.

Avoid this place if you can. Terrible customer service and they wil try pass off old beer as fresh by putting house stickers over old bottle dates. Staff is rude and uneducated. I know there aren't a lot of beer stores in fort Myers, but this one is just awful.

Visited on 6-30-10
We swung by Total wine & More while vacationing in Fort Myers. Initially, I was wowed by the immense selection of wine and liquor, and eventually weaved my way back to the craft beer section. One side of the aisle was bombers and singles, with the other side sixpacks. There were selections from most of the regular brewers like Sam Adams, Left Hand, Victory, and Stone, with standouts like Oscar Blues, Brewdog and The Bruery. Lots of more local Florida breweries were available, all with 12oz singles. The Belgian and German selection was sizable as well. The pricing was very competitive, with many beers cheaper than they are in MI. If I would have driven down here, it would have been easy to load up the car. A must-stop if you're in the area.

Finally a large selection of beer in Ft Myers. This huge store has over 500 beers including lots of Belgian,German and American micros. Seasonals are also stocked. If you're in the area, this is really the only place you need to go to for good beer. All the available Trappist beers are here. LaTrappe, Achel,Chimay, Rochefort as well as Belgian staples such as St Bernardus and Abbaye desRocs. Also the locals, Avery, Dogfishead, Allagash, Ommegang, Shipyard, Great Divide etc. and more. Prices are great too. Awsome!!
