Easy to find location off I-4 and in front of mall with good parking in front. Clean corporate inside with wood bar and tables. For show only brewing equipment behind glass at the end of the bar. Freindly service with good knowledge of selection of 12 taps. All beers average drinkable with good selection of styles. Good food menu of starters, sandwiches and pizza. I enjoyed the visit.
For a chain brewpub - this place is above par. Nice spacious layout, huge TVs, excellent service. Food is good - large portions - had the meatloaf sandwich and could not finish it. Have about 10 or 12 of their own beers on tap plus about 6 or 7 guest taps with a solid selection - even had St. Arnold’s from Texas there. Their own beers are quite solid - I had the PM Porter and the Lastos Oatmeal Stout. Have about 6 regulars and another six rotating. Worth a visit if in the area.
Spacious with lots of big, flat screen tvs... the focal point being a panel with six flat screens ass to elbow about the bar. Good, piped-in Rock n Roll music. Aerosmith, etc. Huge murals and pics all over the walls... people harvesting barley, American "Beer" Gothic, etc. No smoking. Nice lighting... sparse, but in all the right places. Sun room area of dining area as well. The line-up of beer was solid if not spectacular, just like the BJs I hit in SoCal back in 2004. It’s a nice place... I’ll be back.

Overall this was a great experience for me. I went for the first time on a Friday evening and even sitting next to a large party I could hear my friends. They have a large, loud main hall, but adjacent to it is a much quieter side dining area. The food was excellent: pizza, salads, and appetizers were fresh, original, and a good-size. They have their 7-beer sampler for $8.50, and it is a nice primer. Their beers weren’t exceptional and they were out of the seasonal and any guest beers, but the food made up for it.

Busy place, went on a Wednesday night and had to wait a bit for a table. Very spacious with quite a few tables and booths and a large bar. TVs with sporting events located throughout the place. Nice selection of beer. Some of the beers were good, some of them OK but nothing that was bad and I sampled a bunch. Various sample options with one of them offering 7 beers for $8.50. Food was pretty solid as well. Service was alright but the place was quite crowded. I had a really good time and would recommend the place.
Nice brewpub with a family feel. House beers are good, not great and a nice selection of Belgian bottle that are priced very well. Food is pretty good and they had the NFL ticket, showing 6 games on the huge screen TV in the front. Just don’t ask the waitress anything about the beer, they are generally clueless.
A great place to eat and have few beers.Tried their sampler and really only 1 brew stood out, nothing special here.They don’t brew on premise due to silly Florida laws so you don’t get the freshly made 5 minutes ago beer or that special beer they are working on and let you sample before it goes public feel.
You know. Its a chain. But I like it. I had their Grand Cru and it was surprisingly good. The service was VERY good. Decor is nice. and I think their food is more than decent and consistent for a chain.
Located near a large mall in the south of Orlando. Stopped here on a business trip. Large bar area is a bit noisy around happy hour. Plenty of restaurant seating, as well. Around 10 taps of BJs beer, along with Stella, Lindemans, and Guinness. Also, the bottle selection includes maybe a dozen Belgians. Porter and stout were OK, a bit thin. Worth checking out if you’re near Universal.
