This is an update, as the food portion of this operation has changed, for the better: "The Kitchen at Discretion is under the ownership and direction of Head Chef Santos Majano. The Kitchen at Discretion serves beer-focused, farm-to-table comfort food made in-house" The head brewer continues to put out new brews, Iíd say with the food availability, it is a must stop in the county and being kid and dog friendly (on the patio) is a big plus.

Spacious, airy interior with an industrial feel. Cheap flights, which however were served on muffin tins, which felt cheap and unprofessional. Beer went from awful to almost mediocre. Very low quality with the same flaws in every one of them. The food did look great though, saw some solid ramen bowls. I might go by for food if Iím in the area again, but order water instead of beer.

For a place called Discretion, the building doesnít fit. Itís a tall, bright red aluminum building with neon signs and big windows. It has a very metal, industrial feel on the inside. The flight was pretty cheap, and served in a muffin tin. The beer wasnít great. The Thursday evening crowd was large, but everyone had a spot. The food that went by looked amazing, and the word is that itís all excellent. They would be well served to bring the beer up to match it.

A nice working brewery with an open airy feel and nice patio. Service is counter and seems OK if a little slow. Beer is pretty bad, but there are lots of cheap ticks to be had. The food looked amazing though and people around us were very pleased. I would go back for the food.

First off - itís overshadowed by SARA just to the south in beer quality. Just about any brewery would be. Itís got some very nice beers, a nice, sunny, open, pleasant tap room, nice staff, good food and reasonable prices.

good sized tasting room in the back of the lot. a small patio, a few seats at the bar, and some tables to sit at as well. they had 7 beers on tap and they were all half decent at least. not a great brewery, but serviceable. pretty convenient stop if youíre on your way south to sante adairius.

Visited June 8, 2013.

This is a new brewery and theyíve certainly put some money into it. The building is pretty big and they have a smaller patio outside that is very nice. Lots of plants, picnic tables, and a few benches with a few hop plant scattered around the property.

We tried seven house beers and got a glass of the saison. The hoppy beers were decent and the saison was nice. Itís a convenient stop on the way to Sante Adairius and itís on the same street as a number of liquor stores.

Iíll have to give it another try in a year to see if the beer has gotten better.

Stopped in prior to a visit to SARA. Nice little place with indoor and outdoor seating. Six taps running when I was there (but one was blown). Food menu is a bit sparse, but interesting. I enjoyed my chili. Beers are decent to good, no real standouts, but nothing sucked either. Great and knowledgable staff were friendly and happy to help. Prices decent as well. Definitely will go again.

Stopped in here while visiting the beach with the family. Nice place! Itís tucked away on a side street off the main drag right across the street from a shopping center. They have a nice porch area with some tables so you can enjoy your beers in the sun. Inside they have a bar that faces the brewhouse. The wall is see-through so you can check out whats going on. Pretty cool. The decor was pretty simple with lots of natural light coming through. The service was very friendly and prompt. I didnít try any food, just got a sampler of all the house brews. They were all pretty good, with none standing out as exceptional. The Rye IPA and English Brown Ale stood out to me as very nice beers. Overall, this is a nice stop for some ticís in a beautiful area.
