Right in the Centro Ybor complex this is a nize relaxed brewpub with an open airoutdoor beergarden Nice selection of 7-10 house brews, and 7-8 other drafts, none BMC. Food is above average with some interesting options. Lacks a little of the charm and grime of the old location but still a must hit. Updated 03/02/2010 for new location.

The sampler was huge - 8/9 beers. I went there with my wife a couple of years back on a 2nd honeymoon. I was expecting her to just indulge me on one of my brewpub excursions, but the food and atmosphere turned out to be very good. Walking distance from the Ybor City strip - makes for a nice bar-hopping evening. Good beer, but I probably overrated them, being sufficiently lubed by the time that I got to the end of the sampler.

Stopped here for lunch and got parking at a meter directly in front of brewpub. Service was quick and freindly. Ordered the sampler of nine brews. David the brewer noticed my rating and we discussed brews and he opened a cask IPA for me. Selection was very good and they had a brew for each major style. After I had tasted sampler, I reviewed the complete menu and ordered calamari. Hard dish to cook properly, but this was done perfectly and was a very nice portion. I agree that this is an essential stop.

I have been brewing for 22years and always am at a loss to find a good pub...especially in florida... .i had a hard day at work and what a joy to find a real brewpub...and they even knew what cask beer was!!!. I drank my fill of Old Elephant foot IPA it really knocked my socks off (i love a very highly hopped ipa...over 100IBUs they claim). I also had the Iron Rat Stout...very smooth and had the alcohol to go with it. The Barley wine was a bit sweet...but also had a great malty flavor. The food portions were very large and i could not eat all the food....i had a steak Staff was very friendly and David the brewer recommeded a great place to get some cigars down the Street....and even bought me a couple of pints. Very good location to start your Ybor City night....right in the middle of everything. to the purists...some of the beers were a bit out of style but...hey who is complaining they were very good.

Nice brewpub in the middle of Ybor. Everything- food, beer, service- is always at least good. Stop in most of the time Iím in the area.

Yes, the place is dark, but itís great. About 8 to 10 of their own beer was on tap along with about 8 other beers on tap, and none of those were bud or miller. The burger was great, the server was great and the root beer was to die for. A great gem hidden in Ybor City.

Had a very nice lunch here on vacation after hitting up the aquarium. Lunch was calm and almost empty, so the attractive server gave us pleanty of attention. Beer was top notch, and the food was just as nice. The whole feel of the place seemed to be dark, it wasnt too well lit, and all the wood in the place was dark or stained that way, but kept clean, not a shady place at all.
