To say that this place is in the middle of nowhere is a misnomer. It is west of the middle of nowhere. The place looks like (and is) an upscale winery that also makes beers. They just invested in a system to brew their own beers, and they have some interesting ideas. Every beer has fruit in it, and in some cases it is a wonderful thought. I especially liked the Coconut Starfruit Blonde. The place is full of wine people, except Dave, who was very knowledgeable and very open about the winery and what they are working on. I would go back and try their new stuff every chance I got, if I was a local. Beautiful grounds and incredible ambiance.

Definitely a great out of the way place to visit for the day...makes for a nice 1/2 day trip. As other have said...the gardens are great and there is usually music is playing...sometimes live...otherwise in the background. Just really nice ambiance. Of course this is a winery first (all made without grapes)...but recently a brewery too. They refer to the beers as "Miami Brewing". There were 6 beers the day I was there (I understand it was only 4 in the past). The beers were good to very good...but none were what Iíd call standouts. Nonetheless...a visit here is fun and you can always hit J. Wakefield and Wynwood on your way back north.

As others have said, this place is in the absolute outskirts of Bumfuck Egypt. Tucked away amongst the palm tree farms and avacado and mango groves of Homestead. The beers are fairly solid. Selection is limited. Service is friendly. The only eats are cheeses and deli meats. The atmosphere cannot be beat. The outdoor biergarden-like area is a tropical botanical garden paradise... with a waterfall. If youíre in south Florida for the first time, donít hesitate to visit. Totally worth it.

Nice place conveniently located in the middle of no where. They serve 4 homemade beers with a Florida twist that are good. Staff is friendly.

This place is wonderful. Itís not far from Coral Castle, but of course feels like the middle of nowhere. Which is wonderful. We took 304th to get here and it becomes a dirt road! We donít have many dirt roads in South Florida! The winery is surrounded by farms--well, duh, it is a farm. The facility is built as a giant oasis, with lots of trees. Their water-scaping is sweet, they even have a waterfall that must be ten feet high. The place is huge and set up for large events, so would be great for a birthday, wedding or beer festival. Outdoor seating under giant tiki huts makes it perfect in all weather. The beers were contract brewed but they have done so well they bought a large system and have just brewed their first batch on premises. Itís only going to get better. The servers were knowledgable. The beers are much better than expected. Because they are showcasing their own fruit, the beers taste very natural. The wines are fun too. Avocado wine! Drinking fruit beer and fruit wine from the farm that grows it is very special. It really makes me appreciate Homestead to visit here.
