A beautifully decorated brewpub with wooden ceiling, brick walls, very warm and pleasing, good service, top notch food, beers are below average (except the IPA and DIPA). Sampler flight 8 X 5 on for 8$.

The Microbrews are excellent. Great place to eat. My wife does not drink beer and she even likes Big Bear. Iíve yet to take the microbrewery tour, but itís on my list.

Great brewpub. Sure they tailor to the everyday crowd but the place is nice and clean everywhere. Servers a very polite and informative even if it sounds scripted. Their beers on tap everyday are solid. You have to try the seasonals and specials they are always top notch. Now they even have some guest taps. Food is outstanding, try the pretzel encrusted chicken and the beer cheese soup. A little pricey but worth it.

A nice place to visit, but I wouldnít want to visit it...again. Ambiance is the best this place has to offer--dimly lit, nicely furnished, it feels classy. Service is good. Food? I ordered a salad with a price tag of $14. For that price, I was expecting a delicious, sumptuous mountain of healthy goodness on a plate. What I got was a mediocre, small salad that should have listed for $4.99 as a appetizer. Beer selection was uninspired, middle of the road offerings--solid, but nothing that knocked my socks off.

Visited a bit later in the evening on Wednesday in June. Brewpub in a new strip mall along a busy stretch in Coral Springs. Despite the new exterior, they go for the upscale dark wood and leather feel of a steakhouse or nicer tavern. The first thing I noticed was the heavy hickory odor, seems apparent they have a wood fired stove. Food smelled and looked good, though I didnít have time to try any. The beer range offered during my visit was pretty unimaginative, though they appear to rotate a fair number of beers. The Pale Ale was really fresh and quite nice, they aslo do 5 ounce samples of any of their beers, which I also liked. Service was pretty aloof, but not necessarily rude. Overall, nice enough to stop by if you are in the area.

64 = ★★ (Just ok)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

This is a nice place, Service was normal, staff knows litte about beer but I was there in the daytime and there was little going on. There was only a young lady at the bar. The beers are lacking for sure but it was a nice visit.

Pretty classy looking from the outside and I donít know if it was the red leather booths but I felt that I was in some sort of diner. Nice ambiance. Beer was very solid as was the food, but it is a tad more pricey than standard pub fare, however the quality was also better than standard pub fare. Service was exceptionally cheery, prompt and just left a great experience overall. Not too many places like this in the area, so its worth a stop or two here.

Walk in and it looks upscale, but pretty down-to-earth feel. Some menu items are a bit pricey, but pretty good overall. As a vegetarian, there is plenty to eat- the baby green salad with vanilla vinegrette was interesting. I got the sampler- the English-Style Brown, Dubbel, and the Imp Stout were the most interesting. Lunch was pretty good, and the beers were unique and worth the stop. It was a Sunday, and the waiter knew next to nothing about the beer without the brewer there to assist. Ambiance seems a bit upscale, as do some of the menu prices, but then again, this is South Florida, and the three beers make for a good time. They do blueberry the Blueberry ale though.
