Visited twice on Tuesday January 21, 2015.
First visit around 1pm to 3 pm. Had a 16 oz pour each of the "German Pilsner", "Belgian Ale" and the "Russian Knight Stout", which were the three own beers available. Though I wouldnít agree to the styles in the names of the beers, the beers themselves were all nice and tasty. Saw the ZIP Technology brewery through the window and chatted to the owner a bit.
My friends ate a few dishes and liked it, I had already eaten though, so skipped that part.
Second visit same day was from around 10.30 pm to 11.30 pm when they started to close for the day. Had one more pilsner and one more stout.
Nice view of the Broadwalk with some people watching of the people walking by and at the beach.
Seems a bit of a cluster to park, first time I got there by bus (number 4 line, forget the stop), second time by a ride in the car.
During the day seemed there was only one girl at the bar and one guy taking and serving all the orders, it wasnít bad but wasnít great. By the bar had nice, fast, friendly service with opportunity to have tasters of the beers to.
Seems to not serve flights.
Nice enough place and well worth to go to for a few beers if in the area.
Fairly high score for "Selection", is due to it being a brewery with their own beers.
Also as a tourist nice to get some WiFi.

Has a great patio right on the beach with fine views and great people watching, but only 4 beers on tap. Fortunately, the beers span 4 distinct categories: "stout", Belgian, wheat and pilsner at the time of my Dec. 2014 visit.

One of the worst experiences I have had at a brewery. First of all, parking is a freaking nightmare: good luck finding parking because it is grossly inadequate for the number of visitors. Find a garage. Itís a boardwalk with lots of people. I had to walk about 1.5-2 miles to get to the place once on the boardwalk. Place looks like a small German place on the beach. It is pretty noticeable. Walked up and the place was almost empty except for maybe 4-5 families and the bartender was running around like a decapitated chicken, almost ran me over several times in his scramble to serve people. Took 10-15 minutes of standing in front of the bartender to get a beer. Beer was ok. Nice glass window into the brewery. Beautiful scenery looking out at the beach. Stayed for one beer then left. I can see the appeal of this place, but it will be a bit before Iím back.

This place definitely has its location working to its advantage. Sitting out front just above the boardwalk with a wonderful view of the ocean was fantastic. Unfortunately, the rest isnít that great. Only 4 taps and none of their offerings were that good. And since they seem to have settled on just those recipes, I donít see the quality changing any time soon.

Cool beach side 2nd story location. The seating is picnic tables on the outside deck, with the bar tables and brewery indoors. The brewery is very much showcased in the front window Good people watching of the elderly Russians walking around below. The beers are served in a variety of sizes though there was no sampler or taster available. When I asked, the server brought me a taste of the three beers available in the plastic condiment to go type serving container. I had the shrimp entree and it was tasty enough. This was easy to get to from the FLL airport, and would be a good option if you are looking for a quick bite and beer after landing.
70 = ★★Ĺ (Locals should check it out, visitors with extended time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Nice beachside brewpub with an incredible view of the Atlantic. Inside is a mural of a German scene, but this is Russian owned. German inspired menu with some Russian dishes. Beers are solid although English=American styles are not their forte. Friendly service. 4 X 4 on for 4$.

Right on the beach, which is fabulous. The music sucks but the service is good. The beers are mediocre. But not bad. Beer on the beach is a hard formula to mess up.

New addition to the growing South Florida craft brewing scene. A brewpub on the boardwalk of Hollywood Beach... Sounds daunting since most businesses around are tacky t-shirt and souvenir stores, but the brewpub is at the southern end of that section of the boardwalk. More importantly, the place is quite nice with a large mural depicting a town gate in Germany (looks like Martin Tor in Freiburg im Breisgau, for example) and lots of dark wood. The terrace out front overlooks the beach and the crashing waves; a definite plus. The house brews for now are all quite drinkable, if not forgettable, but these were still solid for first batches. If I were caught in Hollywood again (in-laws were here...), Iíd definitely go back to this brewpub to see whatís on. Thereís simply nothing else nearby that serves craft beer.
