A bit of a hidden gem for beer lovers tucked away off any major roads. Excellent beer selection and decent food. The outdoor area is a great place to hang and listen to live music, but it could be a little better kept. Our favorite beer spot in Sarasota.

This place is nearly everything I want in a bar. Awesome atmosphere. Itís divey but nice. Howie that owns the place is a class act. Super nice guy and knows his stuff. The selection is ridiculously good. I love the layout in the coolers for the bottles. It shows you what they have and their prices so there is no guessing or having to ask. Now the prices is the only slight issue. Some of the bottles are pretty expensive, even for a bar. But the draft prices are all on point. I love this place. I just with it were closer to home.

Has the perfect feel for a great beer bar. The outside is old and somewhat haggard, but inside is true beauty. Great bottles and great drafts. The back yard makes you feel like your on someones back porch. Prices may be a little high on some beers, but there are some great specials on great beers as well.

The Cock & Bull is what a tru pub should feel like. Everything about this place oozes beer. As soon as you walkin the heavy entrance door you see the coolers lining the back of the hand crafted bar. Look up and to the right and you will see the draft beer menu. With roughly 38 on draft and about 300 bottles on hand you will find something you like. The staff is very knowledgeable and willing to make suggestions if you are un sure. The bull is a Non smoking establishment so for those who do and those who do not there is a huge back lot with a fire pit and 2 stages for local bands. I would highly recommend that if you are even close check this place out you will not be dissapointed.

This place used to have a real dive-bar feel (which isnít a bad thing, necessarily), but they renovated and now itís all hard wood. Thereís a fire pit out back for the winter, and indoor chairs, stools, and couches. Plenty of space along with a pool table and a projector for movies. Overall, a really unique and great layout. Service is great, with a knowledgeable staff. Howie, the owner, is especially awesome. I believe they boast a selection of around 500 beers, but to be realistic, at any given time they are out of 100 of those. Beer distributors can be shifty sometimes. Still, their selection is the best in Florida, to my knowledge. Their food has only a few possibilities, but their beer brauts are divine. Get one with spicy mustard and some sauerkraut and you are good to go! Prices are about average to the other bars in the state. Overall, itís a great spot. Check it out if you live in central florida or are visiting!

A cool little place with sort of a "secret club" feeling to it, maybe just cause its in an old farm building on the edge of town. Lots of great beer, nice patio, nice little nooks with comfy chairs, where you can get away from the billiards and smoke. Didnít have any food when i was there, but I think it was just some heat & serve, frozen stuff back then. Heard itís been better lately. I need to get back over there again, maybe on a more happenín night.

This place was a true innovator, setting the standard for beer spots in the Southeast that still has everyone trying to catch up. The staff treats you like family and the space itself is incredibly unique, inventive, and great fun. If you love beer and are anywhere near Sarasota and for some reason do not spend several hours here, you are wrong.

Very nice beer bar in Sarasota. Staff is extremely helpful if the selection looks daunting, and with at more than 500 bottles it can be. Terrific atmosphere. Try the Balboa pizza, a cheesesteak pizza with a mustard and mayo base (it sounds awful but it fantastic).
