As the 1st guy stated, Bobs liquor is one of the best places in the lake county area to buy craft beer. I found this pose as well by word of mouth. One of my friends explained to me they have walls of beer so I was thinking just lots of macro beers. The first thing I saw as I walked in was a big space of craft 6 packs that were not cold. All kinds of stuff that is not at a normal store. Bombers of cigar city, southern tier, etc then lots of offerings in 6 packs on the wall (very good list from the other reviewer). I was pretty stoked when I asked about hopslam ad they had 1 case of it and it was the same price as the other stores in Orlando area. Their prices are pretty reasonable, the selection is great, the atmosphere I scored lower due to the other people that go to buy liquor(place is in a rough part of town and attracts some sketchy people)...the quality was lower only because I saw some beer that had been outdated by quite a while but if u pay attention to bottle dates you should be fine. Definitely a place I would recommend stopping by if in the area.

I got wind of this place via a friend (more later). As I heard it, the owner got sick of having crappy beer in the store, and he decided to ramp up his beer inventory.
The depth of selections is hit-and-miss, but breadth IT HAS. Some of what I found:
Chimay (all 3)
St. Bernardus Abt 12
Rodenbach (no Grand Cru though)
Cigar City (multiple styles)
Southern Tier (Crème Brulee, Mokah, Iniquity, Back Burner)
Hoppy Frog (multiple)
Brooklyn (1 & 2)
Lagunitas (a couple)
DFH (a couple)
Lindemans (the usual band: Peche, Framboise, etc.)
Left Hand (six styles)
Samuel Smiths (4 varieties)
Bells Two Hearted
Old Speckled Hen
SN (Pale Ale, Glissade, Tumbler)
Oskar Blues (Tin Fidy, Dales)
Not bad huh? This list is not exhaustive either. There are a few more Belgians, German lagers, and quite a number more of B/C grade IPA's, lagers, and ales.
You will have to scan the stock horizontally and vertically to find what you want as there is no organization. I recommend logging your finds as you scan else you will lose your place when trying to find it again!
Word of mouth was the only way I found this place. The owner, a nice, helpful, and humorous fellow said he put his store on BA, but I didn't find it (so I did it for him). Also says he's on twitter (I don't tweet so that was useless). The place is on facebook, but it has almost ZERO visitors and updates. The store has no website either. This gives me the impression that Bob's isn't too interested in selling their beer; OTOH, why would you load up on so much inventory?
It would be shame to have all that beer sitting there with nobody to enjoy it. Those living close to Leesburg should go HERE NOW because good beer stores are pretty sparse in these parts (usually 45-60 minute drives between then), and what little there is cannot possibly come close to the inventory at Bob's.
Two other positives about Bob's: Warm and cold beer can be had, and you can do Mix and Match six packs.
