I was shocked when I found myself in Tavares, FL for the night and this "famous" beer bar was just a few minutes down the road. I had to check it out after all the controversy.

Itís a pretty cool place with great beer, all things considered. It seems to be sort of a converted house/apartment or something, so thereís separate areas and taps spread all over with some antiques and such sitting around. The bartenders and clientele throw a strong hipster vibe, but it is what it is - everyone was super nice.

The bartenders were prompt, friendly, and knowledgable. I was at a table by myself and a manager stopped and chatted with me about beer and whatnot. Very nice guy.

Not a ton of taps but everything they had was good stuff and lots of FL beers.

Is this a world class amazeballs place? Probably not, but itís still pretty great. I will absolutely visit every time Iím visiting friends in the Tavares area. The only thing Iíd change is to have the taplist more visible somewhere instead of small pieces of paper taped to the wall. Personally, I like to look at the taplist, look things up, and decide on my own without bartenders asking me what I like, etc. I also understand that Iím not a "normal" customer, though. Iíll be back! Cheers!

I wasnít expecting much, but my expectations were blown away. Its a bit off the beaten path but worth the trek. This is a small town hang out, with character coming out the walls. Its worth stopping by to just see the antiques and people watch. Add in a strong draft list, low prices, friendly service, and its a great experience. Iíll be back.

Love this place; it is a low key craft beer bar that looks like a college basement. Plenty of bottles, nice staff and decent draft selection depending on the day. Prices are reasonable as well

Visited here a few months back...really enjoyed the experience. This is a very unique and ecclectic craft beer bar. More like an antique and craft beer memorabilia store than a bar. The taps are spread around the establishment along with the bottles and kegs. The beer is very good though...nice and varied selection. Best of all was hanging out and talking to Daneaux...nice guy...very interesting conversationalist...with an obvious passion for craft beer. If in the area stop by for a visit. (Note...Iím very stingy with 100 ratings...I think a place needs to earn that over an extended period of many years and many reviews...for me a 92 rating is very high for an establishment of this type).

Awesome place! Feels like home on your first visit. Daneaux & Bill make you feel like youíve been friends forever and youíre always welcome. 3rd time there, but you can call me a regular from now on.

Mermaid Juice is a little hidden gem about a half hour northwest of Orlando. Dan, the owner, is very friendly and instantly makes you feel at home. I was very impressed with his draft and bottle selection, stuff you canít find anywhere else, and the prices were very reasonable. He gave us generous portions to taste and sample beers that we were interested in. I will definitely be a regular here and highly recommend visiting.

Great place in Florida, great selection of beer. What I really liked about the place was seeing the owner in the place, speaking to customers and actually doing some hard work. This place is more substance over style unlike alot like a lot of the other designer bars out there. I would go there any day for a beer.

Fun little pub/antique store in a small Flordia town. Owner is a real character and great guy to talk to. Beer is spread out amongst the store and it is worth it to check out the more rarer offerings. Besides getting some great beers the last time I visited, I also got a great set of Ping irons, so win/win.

This is such a great place! Quaintly unique and perfect, itís an antique shop and my favorite place to enjoy a craft brew. An odd combination that really works! The owner is a wonderful host and is very knowledgeable of all craft beers as well as the staff are super friendly & helpful! They often have fun events as well as live music! I highly recommend this great hang out to kick back and relax while sipping one of the many brews on tap or from the wide variety of bottled beer in the cooler. I have to visit this place AT LEAST once a week!
