Take Blazer’s recc with a grain of salt... sometimes it ends up being a honey blonde or something dumb! But still good advice!


Guess I should have said it might be something you aren’t interested in but it is not on a menu so you have to ask. I like the barleywine, it wasn’t on when I was there Friday but I saw a fermenter with barleywine in it.

Looks like I’ll definitely be hitting up McGuire’s. I’ll have to check out the secret beer, also. And no worries on the style, If it’s beer, I’ll probably enjoy it.

Thanks for all the replies and advice in the thread!

I hit McGuire’s Destin location and Props back in December since they were very close to each other. McGuire’s was really good, but also really busy. Not sure about the Pensacola location. Props have not only their beers on tap but a few other local breweries as well which made it nice to have a broad sampling.

Good to know, I’ll keep that in mind. Thanks, Shig.

Thanks for the recommendations folks. McGuires had a very fun atmosphere and great food, with nice beer on top of that. I really liked Pensacola Bay Brewery. It’s such a nice little brewery with a laid-back feel to it. Everyone there was awesome and the beer was pretty good. Cheers, everyone!!

Glad you had a good time even though it’s a borderline beer wasteland!
