Typical character-free modern brewpub with sub-standard service.
Beers seem to have improved over the years.
Recent samples leave impressive lacing even in the taster glasses. All have nice mouthfeels too and pretty solid palates. There is some potential here for sure. But WTF: none of the beers have any smell and when they do breathe out itís a little fart. I donít know if itís the glassware or what. Iíd notice if it were bleach so itís not that. Mainly itís just emptiness, to match the ambiance of the bar maybe?
Not to be too mean, itís a pretty chill place and Iím sure Iíll be back more than once.

A pubbish sort of place with Titanic memorabilia on the walls. Had 9 house beers, fair to middlin, with a couple of guest taps. The food wasnít bad - the bisque is way pepper and oversalted but I wasnít looking for high end cuisine to it was all good. Worth a visit - especially if thereís a nice seasonal on the tap.

Very decent, university-like brewpub with a long bar, friendly service, and a bunch of tables-some in front to see the outside, most others for large groups in the back. The beer was reasonably good, the IPA most interesting from about 7 beers on tap including a stout on nitro. Good turnover for their most popular beers, hence freshness not an issue. Depending on traffic, 20-30 minutes from the beginning, meaning to me North, of Miami, and not too far from the airport and tourist attractions.

Visited late night on a Tuesday. Located right by the U, I was able to find street parking though looks like this may be an issue on a busy night. During my visit, there was a jazz combo playing initially, then another group, which was loud, though both groups were solid. There are two rooms, one has a longer bar and the other room has tables. Featured 6 Titanic beers on draft as well as 4 guest taps (Fat Tire, Sixpoint Resin, Wynwood La Rubia and Two Brothers Outlaw. Appeared to have a dozen or so bottles. Decent vibe, good service. I missed the food, though they had a decent bread pudding. Worth a stop, located right next to a Stop N Shop.
70 = ★★Ĺ (Locals should check it out, visitors with extended time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

This casual sports bar does emphasize the U of Miamiís sports exploits, but if youíre not a sports fan, all of these televisions on sports channels and UofMiami flags and insignias wonít convince you to spend many hours here. But, the main reason I was here was the beer, and there a few solid hits in their lineup. While the Saison was completely off the mark, the White Star IPA was scrumptious, and the Tripel Reserve and Oatmeal Stout perfectly drinkable examples of their respective styles. Although the atmosphere was soporific and somewhat dingy, I would come back for a couple pints if I were in the area.

Easy to locate off Dixie Hwy just past Uof M. Parking in front. Long wood bar with brew operation behind bar and glass and section of tables for food. Server was freindly and had the sampler of standard six and she let me sample the three seasonals. They had guest drafts and bottle selection. Bar menu with a seafood kicker. Had the calamari and a salad. Very good and fair price. Good change of pace from South Beach crowd.

This was my first Brew pub in Florida and I had to drive 100 miles from one side of Florida to the other to find a Brewery. Micro pub look this was a college bar right next to University of Miami. Good parking found up front or out back. Los of good beers on tap. Had a great lunch the Mojo was very good. The service was very good they had lots of beer knowledge. Talked with the owner and brewer and we talked for good while about the beers in the area. They gave some other suggestions to visit while in the area. This was a nice place I bet it is rocking at night time.

Visited with a group of friends on January 21, 2012.
Tried the Porthole Sampler with 5 regular beers and a seasonal. Had the other two seasonals on half pint. Full pint of the oatmeal stout as I found it to be the best. Ate a steak with fries that was really nice. They had some live music playing. Nice enough place, no beers were bad, some were to the boring side. Iíd go back for the food and the oatmeal stout for sure.

I stopped past here for a quick beverage after going to Stop N Shop nearby. The place is a pretty standard brewpub by all accords, but an enjoyable pub nonetheless. They had a solid selection of house-brews; I opted for the 2xIPA, which wasnít bad. Service was a bit slow, considering the place was quiet. If you are in the area it is still a worthy stop.
