Visited here in late October í10 while in DeLand for parents weekend at Stetson. Felt right at home - made it by there twice during the weekend. Excellent selection of taps (about 15 or so) and bottles (at least 60 or so). Had some Cigar City, Terrapin, Odell, SKA on tap to name a few. Many hard to find Belgians, a handful of JW Lees, some Colorado micros and they were featuring Dogfish Head - had at least half a dozen from them. Great atmosphere - big garage-type door opens up to the street when it gets busy. Servers are knowledgeable and friendly and always offer a taste before the pour. Food is from the restaurant across the street (Norville Barnes) which just so happens to be owned by the same folks. Had lunch there earlier in the day - excellent. Stop by if in the area and plan on staying a while!

Over the past 2 years I have traveled to DeLand frequently on business.
I have to say that the Abbey is one of my favorite bars that I have ever been in.
They have 18 taps and they are constantly rotating the beers on those taps so every time I go in, I am pleasantly surprised with some fantastic beer that is hard to find elsewhere. These guys KNOW their beer and get their hands on some good stuff.There will always be something on tap to please the beer snob. I promise! Do yourself a favor and pay the Abbey bar a visit!

Ive been there a few times and its always good. Pretty busy on the weekends, but still tables. They had a good draft lineup and bottle list. Prices seems a little high. However there is no other place like this near here. The service was good, but they held my credcard to keep my tab open. Which made me uneasy. I will continue to go here.

In Florida on business and finding this place was a pleasant surprise. Pretty good selection (for Florida) no surprises but again good for Florida. The food was OK. I will definitely come back here when Iím in the area.

SOUTH of Road 92... In the nice part of Deland. Great place, with more choice (surprises await) than on their web site. 16 taps, including CCB Jai-Alai, Stone RIS and other interesting brews. Great service from the guy but a weird, a bit depressed girl came in late, I heard... My girlfriend and I ordered food that came from the restaurant on the other side of the street, with the same owners. Maybe not that "world-class" but worth the 45-minute drive, easily. If I ever go back in central Florida, be sure Iíll go back!

What a great place! The selection is waaaayy better than Iím used to. More beers Iíve never seen than anywhere else. (Although they didnít have double dead guy which is my new love.) The guys there are super-friendly and even told me about ratebeer! These guys know way too much about beer and can answer just about anything you can ask. New to Florida and I already found a new home! Thanks Kevin!

Iíve read about the Abbey for years but never was in the neighborhood. Quite the trek from Orlando, but a great hidden jem. Great tap offerings, great "Stock Exchange" concept. Hope to be back in the neighborhood again to see whatís on tap.

Okay. This was a strange little place. Definitely not what I was expecting. First, its kinda in the middle of nowhere, and was a bit hard to get to. However, once we were there, the interior was very nice and welcoming. We sat in the little couches and I could have taken a nap. The waitress was very knowledgable, very friendly, and took great care of us. The beer list was awesome. And the food was basically paninis and salads. A bit limited for my tastes. I dont think I would go out of my way to go here again, but if I was in the area, I would definitely drop by.

Tried this place for the first time a few months ago and was definitely not disappointed. The day we visited was sunny and cool, so the entire front of the Abbey was open to the street which gave it a very European street pub atmosphere. The Belgian beers on tap that day were pretty excellent St. Bernardus, Piraat, Leffe, and a few others. Very nice bottle selection as well. Unfortunately, they were out of Trappist Rochefort 10, so I had to settle on a bottle of the 8, served in the appropriate Rochefort glass. The food we had for lunch was very good and they had a decent selection of it. Prices are competitive. Sadly this place is two hours or more from our house or we would visit more frequently.
