Visited on 6/21/08. Generally, we have never been disappointed with a Mellow Mushroom because they have excellent food and a reasonable tap and bottle selection. We can typically find something we enjoy drinking. This restaurant in Brandon is no different. They had a reasonable draft selection (2 Rogues, 2 DFH, 2 Shipyard, 2 Lost Coast, Delirium Tremens, Stella, Guinness and a few more) and a decent bottle selection including both 50cl and 75cl bottles. Worth a stop if you are in the area. However, my only complaint was that our server (who was doubling as the bartender) served my draft Delirium in a pint glass and then charged me $8.50 for a pint of Delirium! Not a bad price for 16oz of Delirium, but what made this worse was that they had the appropriate glassware on hand and she didnt ask me if I wanted a pint of it. Overall, good place to visit. Might tell the server what type of glass to use when pouring the beer!

Definitely have to come here once in a while to check out whatís on tap. Right now they have Bells Hopslam. A few weeks ago they had the somewhat rare Rogue Hop Heaven. Plenty in bottles, but be sure to ask what theyíre out of because the list is fairly out of date. Pizza is awesome of course. Definitely a place to go to for good beer.

First off this place has warmer colors and feel than the one in Tampa. The bar area seems a little smaller. But they do have a nice array of draft beer selections and some cool stuff in the bottle. I see bottles of Saint Somewhereís two offerings, DFH 120 and DFH WWS among several others. I feel the Tampa location has a little better selection and seems to have a more knowledgeable staff. But Iíve only been to this location once. I will likely stop by again when making the long drive out to Kingdom Liquor.

Stop serving dark beers in frosted glasses. Other than that, I canít complain. Not as good as the Tampa location, but still pretty damned good. Had a Rogue Chocolate Stout on draught there, donít see that every day. Food is the same as the other location, in other words excellent. Friendly service, and a nice bottle selection.

Very good selection of beer, but even better pizza, really enjoyed my rogue hazelnut, but still think the pizza was better. Very nice staff and great atmosphere.

Has a pretty good selection but has a couple of fairly glaring, although arguably significant or not, flaws. Their beer menu is not up-to-date. So, you rely on the knowledge/memory of your server to tell you the differences between reality and the menu. I only asked about updates regarding the draught selections and not the bottles, and lost out on an opportunity to try some Terrapin brews, such as Big Hoppy Monster. Secondly, their 16 oz Dunedin Brewing bottles are $6.75 apiece. I would pay that for top 100 brews, but not a flawed 48 percentile beer. Third, I had a sampler of 4 brews ($6 for 4, 4 oz brews) and the 3 I had had before tasted woefully worse than they should have. I asked the server if they had cleared the lines before serving them to me and he said they had, but I donít think so. He said they clean their lines weekly, but Iím not so sure. The Rogue Juniper tasted nothing like Rogue Juniper. Lost Coast Dunkel Weizen tasted nothing like a Dunel Weizen. Daleís pale ale was flat and not overly hoppy. Only DFH 90 minute was remotely like I expected it to be. Thereís an outdoor patio that gets late afternoon sun, and itís a place that cares about beer, but has some issues on the execution.

Good service and a high quality selection of beers; nothing rare or extraordinary but far above and beyond what youíd find at most restaurants. Pizza is pricey but super good. Definitely a must-stop in the area.

Lunch with Matta, about a year ago. The cleanest, most well-lit and friendliest Mushroom Iíve been in. Standard Mellow Mushroom feel otherwise, less noise though. Service was efficient and friendly. Beer selection was decent, but not the least bit interesting. Food is always good in my experiences at these restaurants and was no exception this day.
