This is in on Zaragoza St at the end of the historic Pensacola village. Itís a nice brick building on the corner and within spitting distance of the gulf. Inside is a small tasting room with some glass doors that allow you to see the smallish brewery in the back. They had 14 different beers on tap which I was a bit surprised by. They have the regular styles like pale ale, porter, and amber but they also had an imperial stout, a raspberry Berliner, and a whiskey barrel porter, a double IPA, and for some reason an Oktoberfest beer (I think a lot of the breweries do a maibock for mardi gras, so maybe this is like that?). They do flights of 8 but the server was nice enough to do a second flight of the remaining 6. Most of the beers were OK, but nothing special. Also, the taster glasses were almost all chipped and in some cases sharp enough to cut your lip on. $16.73 (I think) for 14 different samples. Canít beat that.

Between the friendly atmosphere, the beautiful area, and the shear number of ticks Iíd come back if in the area. That said it isnít the greatest beer around so if you donít care about trying new beers then this may not be the place for you.

I have always enjoyed my times going to Pícola Bay Brewery. The atmosphere is nice and also in a great location. There beer selection is pretty good and they always seem to have an amazing seasonals every time of the year. Recommended if you pass by the area.

Cool brewery in the historic district of pensacola and a short walk from the water. Bartender was extremely nice and helpful. Brewery staff was also nice and stopped to chat for a while. Plenty to choose from and the day we stopped in we got to try 15 house beers. They also had a few ciders on tap for people who may not like craft beer. House beers were pretty good with a few standouts and the pricing was very afforadable. Overall a good place to stop in for beers.

This brewery is located in very picturesque Old Pensacola Village. The beers were good and the service was very friendly. 10 beers on tap. Nice place - absolutely.

This is a nice brewery in Pensacola, one of two in the city, offering 13 house beers on my visit. The interior in decorated in an appropriate nautical theme, and the water is only a couple blocks away. The staff was friendly and eager to chat us up as well as the regulars at the bar.

Nice, quaint tasting room attached to the brewery. Excellent selection of their own beers. All were decent. Wish they had food, but they apparently allow you to bring your own in. Heard they had root beer for the kids that they make themselves. The guy said they didnít.

A must stop in Pensacola. I thought the atmosphere was very laid back but still fun. A nice selection of taps at a great price. Staff was friendly. Also, really close to a bunch of places to grab some grub.

All of their beers are at least good and some are great. This coming from a guy who visits San Diego fairly frequently and lives on the west coast. Great patio ambiance, friendly crowd, good prices... whatís to not love?

I really liked this place. Itís in a cool building in a cool area and itís got a pretty laid-back vibe. There were some young (college age?) guys smoking cigars and a couple more groups sitting outside when we walked up. When I opened the bigass door I was glad to see the inside was well-lit, with a big bar and wasnít too busy on this Saturday night. We tried a big flight of all but one or two of the house seasonals - they had 3 different seasonals and we got to choose one to go along with the 6 or 7 other beers on the sampler tray. We chose the Blackbeard Stout over the Pumpkin something-or-other and the Raspberry wheat somthiní. I was disappointed in the Blackbeard, thought it was pretty one-dimensional. It was better than some of their others though. Overall, the house beers here were pretty boring. Some were just watery and seemed of low quality. I only make these comments about the beer because otherwise this place seemed great. They did offer a few guest taps here and I could see coming back here to drink, for sure. I just wish they would put some more effort into their beers. With that many styles/offerings its a shame they all tasted so similar.
