Mike's

Located right across the street from the Florida State University campus is Mike's Beer Barn. As you have probably guessed, this place has been quite popular with college students for many years, especially the drive-thru feature.

The building isn't new but still looks good. If you stop and think about it, with driving and drinking laws, a beer drive thru is an oxymoron.

He does not look as though he pours much of the profit back into the outside appearance of his business. But they always say Location, Location, Location!!

A recycled gas station. Now that's what I call, great ingenuity. Instead of gas-n-go its beer-n-go!

Beer is everywhere! Australia got so many waterholes with huge tanks of different beers.

I bet Mike's Barn is always wafting with barley aroma. Hmmmmm!

That's got to be one of the ugliest buildings I've seen. But I don't think looks matter when it comes to college students and beer! ;-)

They should have kept it a car wash too. Wash your car, sell you some beer, then down the road you go. They could have "double-dipped".

It looks like it used to be a gas station garage.
Now instead of getting filled up, they can get tanked up. :-)

How funny! Hopefully they remember to check ID's.

DRIVE THRU??? Looks like a converted garage - cool building.

What a very unique building and business. Somebody was certainly thinking 'outside the box' on this one.

You have to like how simple and descriptive the name is! They might as well have named it "Come Here to Get Drunk"! Ah, college. I'd like to say I remember it well, but alas there are many things I can't remember because of hanging out at places like Mike's Beer Barn ;o)
