“Visited the taphouse in old town St. Augustine. The place is small and quite functional, but nice enough. Anyhow to the beer; they have a wide selection of house brewed styles to choose from, so I could try a few I had a flight consisting of:- Drink it Down Pecan Nut Brown Ale; Orange Amber Ale; Matanzas River Red-Irish Ale and Castillo Coconut Porter. Give it a look.“

“Ideally located on a corner of Plaza de la Constitución. We sat at the downstairs bar, which was popular and busy making it feel smaller than it probably is. This does though lend itself to engaging in conversation with the people sitting next to you at the bar. They have a wide selection of craft beers to choose (mostly from Floridian breweries) covering many different styles. I had the very decent ‘Midnight Oil’ Stout by Swamp Head of Gainesville & the ‘Mayport Red Ale’ by Atlantic Beach Brewing. Nice place to chill of an evening with a few craft beers.“

“Dog Rose brewery is located slightly off the beaten path on Bridge Street, 5 minutes’ walk south of the Lightner Museum. The inside is a big open plan space, with plenty of seating, a couple of dart boards, a pool table and shuffle board. From the bar area you can see the copper brewing vessels at the back of the building. Nice change of pace to relax with a brew and a go at the shuffleboard. They have a limited amount (12-14 ?) craft beers on draught to choose from but at least many styles are covered. I had the excellent ‘Speedball Stout’. A must visit for the craft beer fan when in town.“

“Nice clean, modern taproom located just a few blocks from the downtown shops. Beers were all solid and tasty. They have dart boards and games. We visited on a Sunday night and were about the only ones there.“

“Visited late February with Mrs. Owl and didn't have a pleasant experience. Kind of off the beaten path in St. Augustine, not by all the touristy stuff, and they seem glad for it. Both ourselves and other customers were basically treated like shit by the only bartender working. It was a young hippie type covered in piercings who definitely had an agenda. I asked for the wifi password (so I could rate) and was told "no wifi - god forbid people actually TALK to each other." It was all I could do not to tell her to fuck right off. I can't remember what the other customers did, but she told them off about some minor thing as well. Kind of a dumpy place, it's like they're trying to run a brewery in a crappy dive bar except they're not really pulling it off. If I still lived in the area or visited again, I'd only be back for ticks because the beer isn't great and the experience was terrible.“

“Visited late February with Mrs. Owl and had a pleasant experience. A bit off the beaten path, but not hard to get to. We had friendly and prompt bartenders. Average beers, nothing special. Clean place, metal and wood, neat brick bar. Was pretty new when we visited, I believe, and everything was shiny and clean. Nothing to phone home about, but we'd pop back in for ticks if back in the area.“

“Visited late February, 2018 with Mrs. Owl. Neat enough little place. Small restaurant with a bar in a strip mall-y type area. Some decent hot dogs with goofy stuff on them if you're into that. Food was good, not great. Good selection of beers for a random hot dog joint. There were several regulars there (just drinking) and we felt a little bit like outsiders - kind of ignored. Otherwise it was a fine experience and we may go back if visiting St. Augustine again.“

“Visited late February 2018 with Mrs. Owl. Neat place, was new at the time, I think, clean, quaint, lots of wood. Very kind bartenders that even brought our flights over to our table and were able to answer questions about the beer. Neat little joint that's easy to find in St. Augustine and we had a pleasant time. We'd definitely be back if we still lived in the area.“

“Visited late February, 2018 with Mrs. Owl in tow for a quick little vacay. Neat enough little place, long deep bar on the main drag downtown. Very good location for them as tourists will stumble in for sure. Friendly and prompt bartender who could answer cursory beer questions. Nice, new, clean. Pretty mediocre to bad beers, but there's not much else around St. Augustine. Stop in for ticks if you are around, but not a destination.“

“from outside it does not look like much. Inside it is basic but solid. My service was very good. Beer selection is wide, Many countries but for someone like me few rare ones. They had some local well priced choices. Place to visit when in town.“

“Located in a light commercial, warehouse. Very accessible from I-95. A covered 'outdoor' area behind garage doors. It's hard to find the bar - not very well marked. The bar itself is kinda dive-y. Probably a dozen beers on tap. I only had one, was on a compressed schedule. Service was a skeleton crew. Beers that I've had have been decent. Will give this another shot.“

“A new craft brewery in St Augustine. The brewmaster was the former brewmaster for A1A Brewery on King St. A1A has new owners Gorden Biersch. It is easy to find down Garanda St (public parking area) and on the corner of Bridge St. I enjoyed only one beer, their black IPA, Blackbird,7.9%, 75 IBU.. Spacious inside area for enjoying beer in this beautiful town. Service was excellent. Another trip is in the planning to spend more time and enjoying a flight.“

“Old, small factory building at the edge of a St. Augustine neighborhood. The space is roomy, but also friendly. 20 seat L-shaped bar with 16 taps of Bog Brews, tables and chairs, and, off to one side, shuffleboard tables. There was one bartender taking care of 8-10 customers when I was there, and he was quick, knowledgeable, and ready to talk beer. The brewer left A1A to start his own brewing here. Not a "must see" at this early point, but stop in when you're in the neighborhood.“

“Nice little place right in the old colonial center of town. About 15 beers on tap (or therabouts), all available in flights of 4. Staff was fairly friendly here on Christmas eve. Beers were ok, especially the dark stuff. Hoppy stuff could use some work.“

“At the end of a weird shopping hallway. Not much on draft but a big bottle selection. Prices are fair. Selection isn’t exciting per say but a hell of a way to get a lot of country ticks. I didn’t stay long but if I was in town, I would enjoy sitting here while the wife shopped at the boutiques nearby.“

“Chatsworth is in the same spot as the former JP Henleys, smack dab in the middle of the old town section of St Augustine and only a few steps from A1A Brewpub. Huge tap selection listed in a big binder that also highlights their Florida made beers. Atmosphere is English pub-like, with two rooms, one hosting the bar and the other is a little more laid back with games and comfortable furniture. Small menu of sandwiches and flatbreads. Prices were very reasonable and service was fast, friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely worth a visit.“

“Right in the middle of old town St Augustine and within walking distance of a variety of hotels, restaurants and historic sites. Nice facility, inside and out, with a more casual bar downstairs and a quieter, food-centric upstairs that offered a great view of the bay. Was here for dinner in the off season, so things were less hectic and more focused on customers. Only 7 of their own beers on tap, the best of which were the octoberfest and the IPA. Good service, better food (the swordfish was awesome). If you are looking for more beer, Chatsworth (formerly JP Henleys) is right next door with over 70 on tap.“

“This is now the closest brewery to my house so i figured i would check it out. Tucked back in a commercial complex near I-95 and the St. Augustine outlet mall. Decent sized place that has indoor seating and some seating in the warehouse that has open garage doors. 16 beers on tap, with 8 of them being house beers. I sampled 4 of the house beers on my visit and they were serviceable but not ground breaking. Prices were reasonable and service was adequate.“

“Disclaimer, this shop is owned by a long-time friend. St. Augustine has an awful coffee scene and very few places who take the time and care to kick-ass and do a great job at creating coffee. Dos operates an on-site coffee roaster using beans sourced from trusted sources. They offer pour-over, espresso, drip and Cold Brew coffee thats served on Nitrogen via keg! They offer 6 taps of beer from Swamped, CCB and some California breweries. and they have and extensive wine list, on-site pastry chef and bakery. it’s really a fantastic experience. John, the owner knows his coffee and his home coffee setup is as extensive as the one on site. The beer & wine are just a bonus. Clean draft lines, well poured, etc. Can’t wait to come back.“

“Restaurant with brewery attached -- focus on the food / tourist given the location with some of their own beers to supplement. Food menu is quite extensive and everyone in our large party was pleased. The service was good, but the waitress is primarily a restaurant server. Had about 6 of their own beers on tap and the three I tasted were all okay -- no stand outs, but no real disappointments either. May be the best place in central St. Augustine.“

“a 2-level brewpub, with a smaller pub-like area downstairs and a larger, fancier section upstairs. 6 house beers on tap ranging from light lager to coffee brown to IPA. All were at least good (for style). Nicely priced flight available.“

“An interesting place down a long hallway off one of the streets in St Augustine. We had just visited the fort and were looking for lunch and found good beer and lunch. The staff was very intent that I found one of their 200 beers to my liking. The Hop House was a nice find. The Greek salad was also excellent. They claim over 200 beers mostly bottles. They could use more taps.“

“Visited here in July ’14. Spacious liquor store with beer in several areas - coolers along the side of the wall, a few shelves of warm singles and an awesome cellar-like cooler full of bombers and quality six packs. Friendly staff, greeted me when I walked in, chatted me up when they saw me lingering for a while looking at the singles - but not hovering. Hundreds of six packs of domestic crafts, a handful available a singles - not exactly a ticker’s paradise. The cellar-cooler had lots to choose from, all of the large craft brewers represented. A little off the beaten path from the touristy part of St. Augustine, but close to the beach.“

“Visited here again in July ’14 - had been her pre-RB days, Nice two-storied restaurant, slightly cramped, but they appear to handle crowds well. Service was slow initially, but once contact was made, things moved along swimmingly. Have about eight of there own on tap - nothing to set your world on fire, but always nice to get a tick or two or three. Varied menu - sandwiches, salads, seafood etc. - very reasonably priced for the location and my sandwich was very tasty. Great place to grab a bite and beer after traipsing through St. Augustine.“

“Always a stop while in St. Augustine. It’s kind of a weird stop in the end of a long hallway at the end of a tourist strip. It’s nothing special or fancy, for sure, but I always manage to find a new rating, sometimes a good one. They have good happy hour specials as well. It’s not a destination stop in St. Augustine, but worth a stop for a beer while your wife shops.“

Had their own brews which all looked OK. The brown ale was different for the style but not bad. Right on the water, so the upstairs outside seating was nice. Stop in if you are there.“

“12/31/12. Went here a couple of weeks ago on my first visit to St. Augustine. It’s a neat little corner store at the end of one of the main drags with 2 levels. I sat at the bar and talked to the brewer, so my service was spot on! The selection is to be expected at GB chain - their stuff and a few other "meh" choices. I did not try the food. The prices were average. Overall, it’s a good stop for a decent brew when you’re in St. Augustine, but don’t make a trip out of it.“

“In a somewhat strange location at the end of an un-American passage of small shops. I expected a fun local beer hole or enthousiastically run bottle bar but instead found a run-down room with uninterested staff and even more uninterested visitors. The table next to me ordered ’whatever was the strongest beer they head’. Oh boy... And what’s up with the awkward beer selection? A very uninviting place overall. Did not stay for food, obviously.“

“One of those brewpubs that disappoints me. A beautiful old building in downtown saint augustine. Nice iron metalwork outside, gorgeous wood inside, but frankly there’s nothing much to it, other than a nice view of the bay from the upper decks. We had a few mediocre beers and left rather than eat.“
