Visiting the best beer store in Orlando is an exciting prospect. I was intrigued, even. So, when the opportunity presented itself for me to accompany a friend to Orlando, I gladly accepted.
Knightly Spirits is located just three miles from Exit 4 off of FL-408, tucked neatly in the middle of a small shopping plaza. However, parking is somewhat limited, so be ready to park behind the building.
The Beer Section is located at the very back of the store. All in all, this is one of the most immaculate, clean, and well-organized stores (beer or otherwise) I've ever visited. An absolutely splendid selection of Belgian and French beers, as well as many of the better US breweries (including DFH, Great Divide, Allagash, Avery, Rogue, Stoudt's, Boulder, etc.) all reasonably priced.
The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable, though I regret having missed the store's manager Jason on both of my visits this past weekend. Ultimately, Knightly Spirits is an exceptionally classy, well-run store, which you should definitely visit if you're ever in the Orlando area.

Out of town on vacation looking for stuff I can't get in Chicago. Picked up some terrapin and CCB. Went to the checkout and asked if they had anything on hold. They had a CCB ghost stories but it had the owners name on it. They told me to hold on and called the owner to ask and be said it was ok to sell to me. Very good service!!! Good visit.

I got a chance to stop in here while I was in Orlando on vacation and was very impressed. The selection was great, especially when it came to the seasonal's. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They had one of the the best selections of any shop that I had been in. The selection of Belgian beers was particularly impressive. They also had a good assortment of the Bruery, Cigar City, and Jolly Pumpkin beers. The prices were quite reasonable. I would highly recommend stopping by if you're in the area.

I stopped in last week while on April vacation with the family. It's a smallish liquor store in a strip mall. Lots of great beers on the shelf, some in a cooler, some haphazardly stacked on the floor with no rhyme or reason. I found some nice Cigar City and Terrapin bottles to drink by the pool and to smuggle home. The guy in the beer isle told me to ask if I had any questions and then I never saw him again. Seemed a bit on the pricy side, but I did get a few 750's. If I end up in Orlando again, I'd stock up here.

In town on business and jonesin' for a good beer place. Hit Redlight Redlight (worth the stop), and was told that Knightly's was THE best bottle shop to venture out to. So away I went. I was pleasantly surprised on the lambic selection. Everyone save for Cantillon was represented, with excellent pricing to boot. For example, Giardin black label: $10. Tilquin gueze, 750mL: $20. That's better pricing than I get up north. There weren't a ton of American Wild's on, but Cascade and Jolly Pumpkin were represented, which is a great start! After the beligan/sour shelf there was about 1.5 times as many chilled beers, and then another half wall of room temp beers. All in all, it wasn't a huge beer place (only 25% of the store seemed to be dedicated to beer), but the quality and pricing was there. I wouldn't give it the 100% ranking, but it was definitely the best beer store I've seen in Florida... which isn't saying a ton. BUT, the selection here would rival most stores.

Read about knightly on BA. What more can be said about this great store. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The store is well organized and clean. Beer is grouped well by brewery. Selection is incredible. Tons of belgian imports (Fantome, westmalle, La Trappe, Orval, Trappistes Rochfort, Achel, St. Bernardus, etc.). The Bruery, Stone, Evil Twin, Cigar City, Great Divide, Bells, Terrapin, etc... Prices seem very reasonable. Glassware is also available and all glasses are only $5. Cigar City, Duvel, and the big Tripel Karmeliet glass to name just a few. Close to Sea World. I love this store! This will be a regular spot for me when we visit Orlando.

This is perhaps my favorite bottle shop in the nation so far. The people are top notch there. My first time there, I asked them to point out local Florida beers. I was pointed to Cigar City and Saint Somewhere quickly. Also, everything not in specialize sample packs is available to buy in singles. I love that!
Also, they pulled a fresh 6-pack of Jai Alai IPA for me.
Their prices are great when it comes to rare and special beers. For example, DFH 120 was $9.00 a bottle. My local store in the DC area was charging $14!

As very other reviewer has said- amazing selection, friendly, knowledgeable staff. Some real gems here, including the only Leipziger Gose I've ever seen outside Germany.
A bit off the beaten path, but not all that hard to find, my GPS had no issues at all. Very close to Sea Workd, so if you find yourself on a family outing hit the park (Bud products only naturally) then let the kids catch a nap with parent 2 while you go to this magic kingdom.
Let them know if you are travellong and they will package your beer for the trip. Don't be shy either, ask questions and you'll be rewarded with some good local brews and tips for great places to sip local beers while on town.

The prices here are fairly typical of most places. You aren't going to get ripped off and you may find a good deal. Lots of The Brewery and CCB choices. Their trappist and Italian beer selections are excellent with things available here you wont find many places. Their J.W. Lees section is one of the more complete in the state as far as I have seen. The staff were very nice people and were very helpful. Atmosphere was typical of your local liquor store. The location is fairly convenient if you take the toll road.

visted here when I was in town for a work conference, to check out what beers they carried that I can't get in PA.
atmosphere isn't much, it's just a standard liquor store.
The had one whole aisle that was dedicated to single bottles, mostly large format 22 oz or 750mL. Imports and US craft. Another half an aisle of 6 packs. Nice selection.
I was mainly looking for Cigar City stuff that doesn't make it's way to PA, and they came through, so I was happy.
Staff was friendly and asked if I needed help a couple of times.
