Too bad its located in a deserted strip mall in the middle of nowhere. The concept is good.

A pleasant surprise in the Lutz and Land O Lakes area. I have been waiting for this place to open for quite some time. An extensive beer menu with roughly 30 taps and about 350 plus more in coolers. The bartenders were knowledgeable and polite and offered specialty brews including a Stone Black IPA that was certainly a treat. Definitely similar in interior to WOB, but the crowd is much more laid back. Reasonable prices and great pizza! They also have a resell license so you can take a brew home.

This bar looks awesome! Hats off to Bethany the beer buyer and manager? She really tries to go all out with her selection. Dude, Jolly Pumpkin and Signature ale in the cooler at all times my dreams. In any case, I have not gotten to spend as much time as I would like to have in this bar. I am due for a raging night of sour beers and a $75 taxi ride home. Ok, there is no way Im spending $75 on a taxi ride. Id rather spend that on more beer. My wife is going to have to pony up and drive my lush-self home.

This is a pretty good place in the middle of a slightly under utilized shopping park. It is one of those areas that never got quite as developed as the developers had hoped. Its selection is quite good, and the atmosphere is not overly constrictive during the week. I just wish the staff knew more about their products beside the brews name.

Went with Steve for a couple of beers. Good selection decent pricing. Reminds me of a larger and less crowded version of WOB. Whats nice is that they give a discount to you when you take out.

Visited this new and welcome establishment to the greater Lutz/Land O Lakes area on opening night and then again within the last two weeks. On opening night this place was packed, which was a little surprising (but excting) given that the formal opening was not highly advertised. Even on opening night the servers were very attentive, and while many did not know beer, they were willing to learn. Visited again recently on a Friday afternoon at opening and found the bartender better educated on beer. The tap lists contain many usual suspects, but they are bringing in some harder to find beers as well. Nice bottle selection which supposedly will include harder to find items like Mikkeller Beer Geek Breakfast and the entire Rochefort line. When I asked the bartender about several of the rarer bottles, they were not on hand, but he indicated that the owner claims that everything listed on the bottle list will be available sometime in the near future. So, when in the area, check them out.

This place just opened up in the Lutz area, and it looks interesting. They open at 3pm sharp and they have interesting beers like Stone Black IPA on tap. $4 for a pint is very reasonable in this upscale-ish shopping plaza. The place is not usually very crowded. A few finds in the cooler, and the manager seems to know a thing or two about beer. Lots of TVs prove somewhat distracting, but they were not up too loud. Interior is reminiscent of WOB Tampa, but feel is cozier and drafts are a nice blend of Germans, Belgians, and American Micros.

Went here on a Friday night. The place was packed and had a guy playing covers on acoustic guitar. Atmosphere was not bad but the high ceilings seem to amplify the crowd noise. Good selection of bottles but we also found as has been mentioned in other reviews that several taps were dry and some of the listed beers were unavailable. What we had was enjoyable and I would definitely go back.

Kind of hidden in a largely deserted shopping mall IBG can be hard to find. The atmosphere is kind of sterile for my taste and the draft selection while fairly large consisted of a lot of the more commercial craft brews ie Widmer, Red Hook etc, with a few empty taps. It not a bad place to get a beer, but it is kind of far from everywhere and unfortunately not worth the effort in my opinion.
