with over 70 beers on tap, none of which are macro brews, this is a clearcut craft beer winner. Adding to this appeal are a very good bottle shop downstairs, an nice upper level terrace with good views, and very good food.
I was in Melbourne for work and had this place recommended to me. Great selection and great prices, at least for a northerner like me. Cool location with a roof bar that allegedly overlooks the water from a distance (it was night when I went, though). Pretty good food, also with reasonable prices. Definitely recommend if you’re in the area.
This place is a gem. Through the front door, you enter their bottle shop. 300+ bottles of beer plus bourbon, whiskey, scotch, rum, tequila, and wine. There were plenty of bottles I wouldn’t find at a Total Wine. There is a covered, open air seating to eat outside, plus a bar and tables inside. I think they had 68 taps. The selection was pretty solid and not overly priced. Overall, I will come back whenever I’m in the neighborhood.

What a great place. The Cellars is the section of the building where they sell a huge selection of 400-500 different bottles and cans of craft beer and cider to go. There is outdoor dining with a lush, tropical feel. We ate indoors, not too far from the bar. There were maybe two or three flatscreens with baseball games showing behind the bar. They weren’t loud or the center of attention, just afterthoughts, as this is no sports bar. The 65 taps offered many very nice selections. It’s NOT a "50 taps of junk and 15 taps of good craft beer" kind of place. My tenderloin tacos were very good and the service was excellent. The key lime pie was excellent, but then again, if you’re a restaurant in south Florida and don’t serve great key lime pie, you’re going under. I will most certainly be back since it’s less than thirty miles from home.
Went here for dinner a while back and just realized I hadn’t submitted a rating. It’s located in downtown Melbourne so parking was a bit of a challenge on a weekend night. The place is rather big, so the name is fitting, with pretty much something for everyone. They’ve got a huge patio area on the top level (which is where we were) but also plenty of indoor seating. Interestingly, there’s a "cellar" on site acting as a bottle shop that not only has a good selection of bottles but includes cheeses, deli goods, and other interesting to go items. The food wasn’t spectacular but plenty solid; the draft lineup had enough to choose from and was actually quite impressive; the vibe on the patio overlooks part of the water and is relaxing and a lot of fun. If the sun is out, and it’s not too hot, I’d definitely recommend the top patio area. I’m not in this area much anymore but this a place I wouldn’t mind going back to if given the chance.
