The place is unfortunately too small, it tops out at about 1200 sq ft which is hard to make things work when you throw in a walk in. Have about 10 taps, always crafts and rotating pretty regularly. A very hipster, older crowd and has really been able to avoid the taint of undergrads just trying to get wasted. Sometimes the staff could know a little bit more about their beer, when you only have 10 taps you should know what each one is and how to explain it to a beer novice.
EDIT: They have expanded, added food and a bottle shop. This has become the go to place in Tallahassee.

Great spot. Very cool atmosphere and super service. I would frequent this place a lot if I lived close.

By far the most sophisticated brew bar in town and the most cosmopolitan professional clientele for a town located in the Bible Belt that used to be known as Beer Hell.
Really good people, at least early on when the grown folks are there. Avoid after 11 on weekends when the children show up. Occassional music like jazz, Irish and Bitte Baby.

Very low-key place in Tallahassee, and hard to find, but once I found it, it seemed like a great place to lounge. Thatís exactly what it is- a lounge. A cool place to drink a few cool beers with some friends. There are all manner of strange people wandering through, but a nice selection of beers and a few house beers meander through from time to time. Definitely worth checking out.

Really cool little place tucked into the artsy district of Tallahassee. Fairly decent selection when I was there; had a big grin on my face when I saw they had the Weihenstephaner Hefe on the menu and ordered immediately. Have that they they have had Bellís Hopslam in the past.

A bit of the beaten path and with a funky atmosphere thatís part hippy-retro and part hip. Only 8 taps but they rotate almost daily. They also have a decent bottle lineup. Thereís wine for those who donít like beer. The outside seating is a plus unless youíre downwind of a smoker. (The inside is smoke-free.) Worth finding.

Wendy and I met up with drowland and his new wife Katie here. Love the atmosphere. Very small, but I like that. Fairly rustic and located in a residential part of town. Fantastic for sitting outside and enjoying a brew while listening to the crickets and other nighttime insects and critters. I felt very "down home and southern" here. The tap selection is very limited and the bottle selection is good, but not great. The service is enthusiastic and fairly knowledgeable. I thought the screen showing old commercials, movies and other nostalgic odds and ends was a nice touch. However, the small outdoor porch won me over. Iíll be back.

Ahhhh yes, my favorite bar in Tallahassee. Great ambiance, fantastic beer thatís always rotating, great and friendly bartenders. Located in a studio apartment, this bar definitely has an "at home" feel to it, but it can also get crowded. I still love it.

Good little beer bar with a nice selection of bottles and a few rotating taps. Staff knows their stuff and is willing and eager to help you select from the list of brews. Ambiance is a little bourgeois-hipster; it is frequented by FSU grad students, beer geeks, and hipsters. Small and narrow, it is located in the bottom floor of a line of condos. Food is soft baked pretzels and cheese plates, which pair well with the beers, but not anything more than a snack. Good place to check out for the beer aficionado in Tallahassee.
