If you enjoy craft beer, the Porch is not to be missed, whether you are vacationing in Key West or are stopping over on a cruise ship. The draught selection is decent, with a good selection of IPAís and other goodies (DFG Theobroma). At first glance, seating appeared very limited, however there is plenty of seating outside, although you have to go inside to the bar to get your beer. Bottle selection was pretty strong as well. Happy hour gives you the best value.

Great craft beer spot on Duval in Key West. Iím counting a dozen taps and must be 60-70 bottles. Recommended.

Used the RateBeer app on the iPhone to find this little gem. Absolutely cannot beat the selection in Key West. This is the only craft beer bar on the island. And the location is amazing. Its on the corner of Duval and Caroline, but you donít get the Duval crowd. Its a big multiy story house that is ridiculously cool. We decided to stop there on the way to Mallory Square for the sunset. I had an Avery Kaiser (Imperial Marzen) and the wife had a Bellís Oberon. It was happy hour, so we got a $1 off each. I donít remember the bill, but it was a little pricey. After the sunset, we walked back over. I had an Oskar Blues Ten Fidy and she had an Avery Ellieís from the can. It was not happy hour this time and the two beers were $15 before tip. Needless to say we left after that because we just didnít want to spend that much on a few beers. I do recommend this place if you are in town and in need of a good craft beer. Great seleciton (draft and bottle) and amazing atmosphere. Iíd go back in a second if the prices were more reasonable.

Went on a trip to Key West with my girlfriend and this was one of the stops. Love the location. Itís in this old Florida style plantation house. Great looking bar. The selection was damn good including CCB Marshal Zhukov, DFH Chateau Jiahu and more on tap. The bartenders seemed very new to beer but were friendly. Didnít always use the proper glassware on beers. Prices were a tad high on some things and right on point for others. But I definitely enjoyed it and it was my favorite place for a beer in Key West.

Went on a recent visit to Key West. Small bar area inside an old house, luckily only about 1/2 a block off of Duval Street. Moderate sitting area in a "library" like room with some bottles on shelves warm and some other bottles in a cooler. The feature has to be the old-school table top Pac Man game on the back wall, that took me back a bit. Service was solid, bartender was very friendly and knew where everything was and what kind of glass to pour it in. Few nice CCB bottles and taps, some stone, Bells, few Trappists. If youíre in Key West this is a must stop. Best part is Key West doesnít have open container laws so you can get a To-Go cup. This is especially helpful if you are with someone who is shopping. Shopping is much better sipping on a Bolita Nut Brown

Wow. This is one of the coolest beer bars that I have ever been to. I found it on this site and on beeradvocate. I knew it was a must stop for my 2 days in Key West. It was the only place that I found with craft beer on tap (I heard that Joeís taproom has some too.) The front of the house looked like a New Orleans house with a big porch, high ceilings, and palm trees giving us plenty of shade. The bar room was very simple and elegant with 12 craft drafts and an extensive wine and bottled beer list. They had one Cigar City bottle that was out of my price range, so I settled on a Chimay White draft. They had appropriate glassware and my girlfriend found a great Malbec from the wine list. I could have spend half of my vacation here. I will definitely go back here next time I am in the keys.
