Been going to Sarasota for years and was aware of downtown location but no reason to use it. Found this location on Ratebeer. Love this part of the service. Great place with great people like Howie, Dawn and Tom. Selection is very good and all three went out of their ways to suggest brews when they knew my level of interest. Had the pretzel with beer cheese. Very good. One of three things on menu. When you have great beer, I donít need food. I went five nights. A Must Visit!

What an awesome place. Very inspiring. Owners Howie and Dawn are 2 of the nicest people you could meet and extremely knowledgable! Canít wait till me next visit well worth the drive from Orlando. The beer selection is great, cask condition beers, and a special Rogue beer. And proper glass wear. Oh and make sure you get a pretzel with beer cheese dip!

Been visiting for awhile, but hadnít thought to share. Often out of food and stop serving it if they get to busy = but beer cheese soup is the best Iíve ever had and brat & pretzel makes a great meal! Have a fabulous selection of hard to find stuff! There 500 plus beers donít include AB or any of the other big boys (and the lite, ice, low carb versions thereof). They know everything there is to know about what they serve - in the right glass to boot. Quiet during the week which is much prefered. Travis is attentive and knowledgable and Howey comes it to bat clean up late nights. There is alwasy something special to share with one of their beer club geeks.

THE place for beer in the Sarasota/Bradenton area. The selection is sick! At least 400 beers at any given time. Many on tap. Where else can you find EVERY Trappist ale? Howieís a great guy and knows his $h*t. Food is limited but one of the best brats around. This is a must stop for any beer lover!

This place is F-ing Awesome; we all need a C&B in every town. Howie and his staff really know their beer! The locals know their beer! The atmosphere has a very Old Word ambiance that just seems to make each sip of your beer every bit more enjoyable! The beer is fresh and well taken care of. The selection is ridiculously sickÖ. I think the owner buys stuff that he wants to try and then puts the remainder in the Pubís immense beer cellar. This place even has a package license, so if you like a bottle of beerÖ just ask and you can buy a few bottles for the road. A Very Highly Recommended Pub!

I no longer live in Sarasota, but when I was there I made several visits to the cock and bull both in its former downtown location, and its new one one Cattleman Rd by the highway. The new location is much bigger, though more out of the way which I kind of like. It makes it more of a place to kill an evening and less of a place to just stop in for a pint. The last time I was there they had a keg toss out back which was a &quo;hoot&quo; especially after two litters of Stout. When it is busy expect to wait for a beer which is worth waiting for as howie knows what he’s doing and keeps all his taps at the right temperature. Once he gets to you Howie (the owner) is always friendly and on week nights especially earlier in the night you can get great tips on beer from Howie. The tap selection is always different, and there is a large selection of bottles and Pub Cans. If it wasn’t for the Cock And Bull I might have never discovered great beer coming up in Sarasota. I’m glad its there and if your in town and havn’t been you have to go.
