For a bar in the downtown area of Gainesville, this one is pretty nice. Foremost, I have to say that parking for downtown sucks. Not Tall Paulís fault, but something to consider. The front outside makes it seem like a small place, but it is quite spacious inside with room for a band and plenty of people. Sat at the bar; service was spot-on, but the place was not busy yet. Tried several house beers and they all were very unique and style-bending from a sour ginger beer to a mango red with real mangoes. Each beer seemed unique and not overpowering, but very nice experiences. Prices are good and almost make up for the parking situation.

i nice big cavernous place, complete with corner stage. nice selection of in house brewery, Alligator. only thing i didnt care for is they also serve liquor and wine, which meant it was packed with college students being loud and bumping into you as they get plastered. otherwise a nice place to get craft beer in gainesville.

Only stoppe in for a quick pint after work. Seems like it could be a fun atmosphere at night. Bartender was not knowledgable, telling me they had CCB Patio Pils, when it was actually Pario Tools (pils vs. stout should be a pretty easy differentiation). Decent tap selection with CCB and Ballast Point, among others.

Very fun place- an enormous garage like feel with very little decor at least when I was visiting. Small, nano brewery set up here like 7venth Sun. Loud, live music, tons of college kids, and a mediocre to surprising bottle list. House beers are all interesting- hopefully they will stay creative and improve. Definitely a night spot, just remember youíre in a mega college town.

Expensive pints, music is too loud and it has awful acoustics. They also have live cover bands on the weekend and you have to pay a cover.
On the plus side, they brew their own beer and have a large selection. It could be a good place to watch sports, but it needs to relax a bit.
