This is more of a sports bar than brewery, and the beers are average, at best. The service was mediocre - one bar tender with several staff just standing around. I did not eat but the food looked good, especially the guy next to me who pulled clean bones away from BBQ’d meat.
A bit older BBQ restaurant/brewpub which seemed to be quite popular among the families and groups. Meatloaf with smashed potatoes I had was probably the best meal I had in FL. Unfortunately beers are not much to talk about. Sampler was very cheap: 4 USD for 7 beers. Service was ok. For food and ticks.
Lots of BBQ and bar food. The buffalo shrimp are my favorite. Usually have 4 of the ’typical’ brewed beers; Wickham Wheat, Anniversary, Brown, and Red on and 1 or 2 special series beers. Lots of TVs with the NFL package. overall, and enjoyable sunday of beer and football.
In the strip mall not hard to find and was not sure what we would find. We found a brew pub with a BBQ habit. They got some pretty tasty beer and the BBQ was to die for. Not the first pick on my list but it will do. Service was a tad off but when she saw me rating oh then the service got better. Oh well they got beer so try it if in the area.
Visited 2/2011. For the area where Charlie and Jake’s is, this is a great little brew pub. They are at the end of a strip mall plaza with the brewery on display and usually a brewer on hand to answer questions. The beer has some solid offerings, and some seasonal and unique beers, too. They had the oak aged saison and the smokehouse stout on when I visited along with the regular lineup. People were nice, pretty beer knowledgeable, and some of the friendliest people I have talked to. I will be back whenever I am around. For a $4 sampler of beers, and some above average bbq, this is a great spot.
Typical eighties style restaurant in a strip mall, sports bar with cheap tables (a la Sonny’s BBQ). Beer is rather mundame with only one good one out of 6. Food is BBQ, decent and cheap. I had the combo for 9$. 6 X 3 on for 4$. Only if youre in the area.....
