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.

Cool little hipster joint. SMALL. Not much room inside. Definately has some "out there" beers. Not your typical selection. Neat with movies playing. Fairly busy night when I went, so too crowded for me (although, for the size of the space, "busy" is subjective as compared to bigger spaces)

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.

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.

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.

Iíve heard a lot of buzz about this place from the local beer dudes, but itís a little off the beaten path for me. Well worth the trip. Located in the Bohemian Quarter in the bottom floor of, I guess, a townhouse. Clean, small, early 60ís decor, 2-3 tables on the patio. Good place to hang on a spring afternoon. Offbeat selection of beers, probably more than the stated 10 taps now and none of them were usual fare, regular participation by regional micro reps. As close to a must-stop location as Tally has.

Cool place, honestly. Nice ambiance with goofy stuff around, a movie or old shows showing on the projector, and lots of neat stuff. Honestly, itís a bit "hipster," but you get over it. The worst part by far is that tiís TOO DAMN SMALL.

The staff is always quick and friendly, and they generally know a fair amount about the beer.

Only about 10 beers on tap, but lots in the bottles, and theyíre getting better about rotating their tap beers and getting some weirder/better stuff in.

Nice selection of quasi-local cheeses and theyíll even bake up a soft pretzel for you... tasty.

Average to slightly high pint prices, but you canít complain there. Bottles are obviously marked up a fair amount... but thatís the business.

Overall, a definite spot to hit if youíre in Tallahassee. Itís small, quaint, and nice, with a few beers in the bottle you may not find at the other bars around town.

Nice place with a decent selection. Available beer is fairly static and the building itself is fairly small, but overall a good place to get a beer.

Quaint little bar tucked into what should be an apartment in a new condominium building in the "artsy" area of Tallahassee. Visited here early on a Friday evening and the place was packed - hard to find a stool at the bar but I managed. Had seven rotating beers on-tap - a bit above par for the area, but not breathtaking (Lagunitas, Lost Coast, Erdinger, Rogue etc.). Beer list showed about 40 to 50 different beers from a wide spectrum of styles and countries with a nice description of each - suitable for the masses - but not quite suited to the beer geek. Only macro to be found was Miller Lite and the description was appropriate - "itís Miller Lite". The beer taps were kept out of sight - which was unusual - but probably a necessity due to the cramped quarters. Wished they had a few more taps - but still a great addition to the slowly burgeoning Tallahassee beer scene. Maybe someday we will actually get a brewpub.
