The Tap Room is definetly awesome and worth stopping by. A tasting room that opens out onto a patio facing a pond and the woods that gives a serene backdrop to enjoying your beer and the scenery. Can be very loud inside on a busy night but quite if you step outside to enjoy. The selection is on the small side featuring their beer and some other locals but worth going because a lot of what they have is not available in stores like maple bacon ipa. They also offer growlers in quart and half gallon size of your can bring in your own. Actually very reasonable prices on everything 4 dollars for most pints or fill a quart growler for 6 or half gallon for 11. There is no food but several nights a week they have a food truck outside so you can get something there. Awesome local gainesville brewery and worth supporting so they can keep growing.

Updating my review as I stopped into the new Swamp Head location. Very nice place, cool ambiance, great service, and awesome beer. This is DEFINITELY your best brewery stop if youíre in Gainesville and itís away from downtown, which I thought was kind of dumpy. Stop in for sure!

Visited 03/11/15. Massive industrial space with a fairly large tap room located on the outskirts of Gainesville. Very easy access from I-75. Bright, airy space with a prominent long bar and an area for merchandise. I counted 12 house beers on tap in addition to one or two guests. Flights were available, but only for the year round stuff, which was sort of annoying. However, staff didnít seem too bothered to give small tastes on request. I came with a less than positive impression of the brewery and left with some respect for the things theyíre doing. The year round stuff was unexciting but well executed. The more experimental stuff was decent, too. Overall, worth checking out.

In a warehouse district behind an older neighborhood. Concrete floors, heavily constructed tables, lots of bar space. The selection is a good combination of Swamp Head brews and other brewers in Florida. Some flights are available. The bartenders were attentive and helpful. Overall, a good place to get local brews.

Itís located in a smaller industrial yard, right off of 75 in Gainesville. Smaller tasting room, but plenty of selection and bar wares for sale. Got myself a Swamp Head growler and a couple of mini-snifters. Neat space, and it looks like they are doing things right. Had a very pleasant visit. Good service, nice bartenders.

i had high hopes for this place, but was pretty nonplussed. another warehouse retrofitted for brewing. ho hum. smallish taproom with a few of their bbers on tap, plus 3 or 4 guest taps. nothing too exciting. honestly if i want anything from them again, ill just get it at the store.

Although in an industrial park, they have setup the tasting room nicely. Service was by the brewers and to be honest, they shouldnít be allowed up front. Not bad but always distracted. Selection was their own stuff of which you could get some in a sampler. Unfortunately you canít get the other stuff in samples or .5 pours.

The tap room is a little stuffy, but at least its air conditioned. The outside was hot and muggy, but thatís Florida in the summer. Service was the best part, very nice and attentive. Selection was sub par, not very much on tap, and Iím not a huge fan of their beers. I would come back again if they had an event, otherwise probably waiting until they move to the new space.

Nice sized tasting room with a long bar and a few tables in the back; lots of wood and cool tables made from cypress stumps. Service was fantastic, knew about their beers and the guest ones, and Andy was nice enough to give me a tour once I told him where I work. Value is average, I think it was only$4 for one of their pints. Overall, a great place right off the highway, but they could expand the selection a bit and it would be fantastic; which hopefully will happen when they move in a year.

Neat little spot back in the industrial area. Nice bar area, and tables let you sit among the brewing equipment, semi-outside. They have more bottles these days, and will be canning this summer. Bottles available in the tap room. Also have CCB and some other Florida stuff on tap. Grabbed some one-off special releases yesterday, and was able to get 3 of each. Nicely run, but they ran out quickly since it is such a small place. Thatís OK, I got my full allotment.
