visited on a weekday, arriving before opening. ended up sitting for two hours with owner/brewer chris discussing beer and life in general. ambiance is a 5 -- but as comfortable as it is it could just as easily end up totally awkward if chris wasnít such a great guy. canít wait to get back around his way and stop in for a pint!

Like drinking in someone's kitchen, its quaint and intimate. About as micro as can be imagined. Would be nice if they had more, but worth a try.

Small, cramped quarters and not the greatest hours. Beer is sub par, and they only had three on tap. It is the only microbrewery for 20 miles though, so worth a stop if youíre in the area.

Small little place with two rooms, one with a few couches, the other with a bar with 4 stools and a table with 8 more. Only three beers on tap when I was there, and two werenít very good. But it is the only place in the area to get freshly made craft beer. And the price was about what you would expect, $5 a pint for everything.

Awesome set-up. Couches to chill on a small bar to sit at or a long kitchen table. I love how relaxed and chilled it is. Very few choices on tap but they were all awesome. Place was pretty busy. Seemed to be filled with a lot of regulars. Friendly but didnít pay us much attention. Seemed to tend to the older crowd more than us younger folks. Glad we stopped by and glad we found it. A little hard to find.

Very nice place, the barman is friendly and curious about customers. Owners are nice and they have a relaxed place where you cna play table games and watch TV. NIce prices and they have great beers.

Cocoa Beach Brewing Company is just a short walk from the beach. Upon entering, it seems as if I just meandered into someoneís den. The place is cozy and small, with a leather couch, table for eight, and bar seating for four to five. There are two flat screen televisions, both set to sports channels.
The owners, Chris and Tracy, are very nice folks. We had a nice conversation regarding beer and the craft beer industry.
A big downside to the place is that they are unable to meet the demand of the customers. They were completely sold out of bombers, and I had to wait about 20 minutes for a full pour of the oatmeal stout, their most highly sought after beer, as the keg ran out immediately after I arrived.
While I thought the oatmeal stout was delicious, I really didnít care for the English IPA. Actually, I found it to be quite reprehensible and was surprised that the same brewer could make such a good oatmeal stout.
There is no food available from the brewery. However, you can order food into the bar from a number of local eateries, which is convenient.
Beers were $5, which isnít cheap, but Iíve seen worse. I hope this brewery will continue to improve, as it has potential. Itís worth a visit if youíre in the area.

While up visiting friends in Melbourne, FL drove over to Cocoa Beach to check out the small operation. When we walked in there were three people at the bar and left about 30 minutes later. Being the only two people left we struck up a conversation with Gregg, who was doing the pouring. He was very knowledgeable and I was able to have a great talk with him about craft beer. He even wrote a note for my fiancee and I to give to Vinny Cilurzo when we head over to Russian River next year for a personal tour. Overall a good, and surprising, experience.

Wonderful discovery (after leaving a disappointing visit to Florida Beer Co.). Located in one of the oldest houses (refurbished) in Cocoa Beach, this charmiing, inviting tap room also has a back porch. Only 4 beers on tap, but they are a MICRO brewery. All 4 beers were outstanding and I bought growlers to bring home. Friendly, very knowledgeable staff.

Beach house bar feel here. Great service. 4 beers on tap. Hope shutting down the space shuttle does not set them back.
