Stopped in for my first and only visit thus far for the BA Roosevelt and BA 10-10-10 release. The place was really busy, but the staff was prompt and friendly and it was a small but nice looking place. I will definitely visit again when in the area.

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.

Way nicer experience than I expected upon arrival at the industrial warehouse parking area. Very nice and knowledgeable service, attractively priced beer flight, a few guest taps, and some fine woodwork here and there. Growler fills and bomber bottles to go.

Stopped by here on a Tuesday afternoon just after they opened and the crowd was already rolling in. Simple but nicely decorated tasting room attached to the brewery. Have about five of their standards on tap with a few rotating specials and handful of regional guest taps. Place had a nice friendly vibe to it - both the clientele and the staff. Beer was solid - wish they had a few more one offs - but not a major detractor. Will make this a regular stop on my way through Gainesville - right off the interstate.

Situated in an industrial area, and simply decorated tap room, but still manages to get a nice atmosphere in here. Did a Tuesday night tour here, which was lead very knowledgeable and interestingly. Very well priced as well, with one beer and a glass you can keep. Enough time for questions too. The tasting room itself offers all their standard beers, some seasonals and some specials. I really like their brews, with Nidnight Oil being my favourite standard offering, but the special I had was great as well - a red wine barrel-aged dark saison. Good stuff. In a way itís a shame that they doesnít bottle there beers, but with their very natural and healthy growth this seems like a matter of time.

We went during the day so there was no other customers there, service was top notch and plenty of Swamphead beers to choose from, it was August last year, and they even had a fire to keep us warm, haha!!

I donít know Gainesville, so God bless the GPS for helping me find this one. Nice tasting room facility adjacent to the brewery. They have the complete portfolio of Swamp Head beers, and the occasional limited release. They had bottles of Saison du Swamp when I was there. They offer growlers, as allowed by Florida law. Nice beers, small room, but it was also a Friday. They have some awesome events and some great beer. I look forward to coming back periodically to watch them grow.
