Where To Buy Beer:
If you fly into Orlando, go straight to Knightly Spirits on South Orange Blossom Trail. That is what I did, you can read about them in my previous travel blogs.
Once you get to the beach area, all of the craft beer places I am mentioning are west of the inter-coastal (a big river looking thing that divides the barrier lands adjacent to the ocean and the main land).
Port Orange is is a gold mine for drinking and buying craft beer.

Not too far from Andy's is one of many ABC Fine Wine & Spirits stores at 1198 Dunlawton Avenue. This is a new location that is super clean and has ample space. Plenty of singles available, and a nice cold beer selection to boot. The selection isn't as good as Andy's but the prices are much better!
Bottle Caps is in Daytona in a neat little area attached to Mick's Tavern. I only had a few minutes in the shop before I had to bolt to the airport, but it was a nice, cozy bottle shop with good prices and a helpful employee. Make sure to check out this gem. I wish I had more time to shop and more room in my luggage.
Where To Drink Beer:
I hit two bars for drinking, both in Port Orange.

World of Beer is a chain that is growing. They didn't offer samples per say, but the friendly bartender did offer some up to us. There had been a big event the day before and a lot of kegs had been kicked and/or replaced, but it was not indicated on the menu as it only changes on Fridays (I was there on a Sunday). This was a bit frustrating a beer I wanted was not available. Overall I really liked the bar and would go back, Don't be off-put that it is a chain. They have 21 locations with 9 coming soon.

Two blocks away from Bottle Caps is an awesome divey taco joint called Tia Coris. Go and thank me later!
