If you’re going to rate this place on the beer alone it would probably score low. Half a dozen taps and none are very impressive. That said, I had a great time here. They have some pretty good food and the place is really interesting. They have over a million dollars in $1 bills stapled to the ceilings where people have donated those dollars and written their names on them. In some places they’re four or five layers thick. They also have a bunch of decorations around like a moose head and a hippopotamus head as well as a bunch of mugs and some pictures. Even the bathrooms are somehow interesting (irritating in this case) in that the women’s door has a sign on it that says men and it points to the right. To the right, the mens door has a sign that says womens and it points to the left. Also, this place is massive. There is a huge parking lot as well. All that and a tiny brewhouse (maybe 7 bbl).

The beers were what you might expect of an Irish place. Irish red and stout were of course on the menu but they also had an "Irish Pale Ale" (aka IPA) and a fruit beer among other things. The steak and mushroom meat pie was pretty good. It was a crock full of beef stew made with a wine sauce and had a fluffy pie crust on top, with a little Irish flag sticking out of it (naturally). It was really quite good.

If in Pensacola again I would probably stop back in for dinner but I didn’t particularly care for the beer.

Busy joint that has worn wood floor to ceiling. Dollar bills are draped from the ceilings, walls, and bar awnings. Definitely has a local cult following. Better than average service. Food menu is decent for a dinner type place. Beers are good to, at times, exceptional.

This is a cool place. Recommended by many here on Ratebeer, I was not disappointed. Very fun place to visit. Nice selection of beers on tap and awesome food. Check ’em out. Steak and Mushroom pie is great.

Kind of a kitschy, gimmicky place but I enjoyed it quite a bit. I was surprised by the food quality (ordered some basic pub grub) and even more surprised by the IPA they had as their seasonal. Worth a stop if in Pensacola.

Great food, decent beer. This place is always crowded, but it is more a gimmick to me than a great place to hang out.

This is a very interesting brewery near downtown Pensacola. There are millions of dollar bills hanging from the ceilings and walls. In fact, they have to close once per year and bring in a small army to count the money and appease the IRS. The beers are average but fresh, with 6 house selections. The food is massive and pretty good.

Best Shepard’s Pie I’ve ever had! This place is ALWAYS slammed busy and try as they might, the staff just can’t keep up. Cool place, great food, ultra shitty wait....
