Okay. This was a strange little place. Definitely not what I was expecting. First, its kinda in the middle of nowhere, and was a bit hard to get to. However, once we were there, the interior was very nice and welcoming. We sat in the little couches and I could have taken a nap. The waitress was very knowledgable, very friendly, and took great care of us. The beer list was awesome. And the food was basically paninis and salads. A bit limited for my tastes. I dont think I would go out of my way to go here again, but if I was in the area, I would definitely drop by.
Tried this place for the first time a few months ago and was definitely not disappointed. The day we visited was sunny and cool, so the entire front of the Abbey was open to the street which gave it a very European street pub atmosphere. The Belgian beers on tap that day were pretty excellent St. Bernardus, Piraat, Leffe, and a few others. Very nice bottle selection as well. Unfortunately, they were out of Trappist Rochefort 10, so I had to settle on a bottle of the 8, served in the appropriate Rochefort glass. The food we had for lunch was very good and they had a decent selection of it. Prices are competitive. Sadly this place is two hours or more from our house or we would visit more frequently.
Had a group of friends all go try this place out and we really liked it. The wines were good and I had a flight of IPAs (Acme, Redhook, Hebrew, and 90 minute), plus they have an impressive bottle selection. Relaxed decor and couches plus a nice bar. Service was outstanding and staff was fairly knowledgable. While it is a haul from Orlando, a neat new place to visit.
My fiance and I visited here a few weeks ago and we really enjoyed it. This was quite a trek from my house in Orlando, but I will gladly make the trip again to go back. The selection is pretty good as there was some stuff on tap that I hadnít had before, and their stuff is always rotating. It is a nice cozy setting with some couches and live music playing as well, which was nice. They did have food, but i didnít try any of it. The service there is really friendly and knowledgeable about what they have. I met Todd the owner and he was really nice too and talked to us for about 20 minutes and even shared a beer as well. The only drawback was the prices are pretty high for the stuff they have. I am used to Redlight and all the great prices that are there. This is a really great place and look forward to coming back again and bringing some friends this time.
not bad at all. pretty good selection and the staff was very nice and helpful. blows me away that this place is in deland. the set up was a bit off for me but hey, went for the beer. good place, definately support these guys.
This place is great, ive been there 4 or 5 times now as it is a trek from orlando for me. Usually go with boboski and solan but i am always up for making the journey. Todd is a great guy, and his passion for trying new beers and making his bar the best it can be is very encouraging. Great selection on tap and in the bottle. Also, have had the luxury of trying a few home brews on more than one occasion from friends of his bringing beer to the bar. You know its a great bar when you got people coming to the bar for beer, and people bringing beer as well. Keep up the good work and see ya soon!
17? In Deland? Hell yes. Deland is in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by more nowhere, but that is part of their secret. I gladly, regularly, drive the more than hour trek to visit. Todd, Rosy and staff are all so nice and willing to do whatever they can to improve your visit. The focus lies on beer but the wine selection is adequate, nothing exciting on the grape front though. Todd is new in the beer game but has more enthusiasm and desire to learn about good beer than I have seen in a long while. Not afraid to carry monstrous beers or ones that command a hefty price tag. No food, but the mexican restaurant across the street is fantastic as well. Very classy establishment. Well done, I hope they keep it up.
Great great beer bar! Anywhere you can buy a bottle of Scaldis Prestige is going to be one of my favorite places! The staff is very knowledgable and hospitable!

Abbey is a great place to relax. The staff can actually talk about beer and recommend anything based on your preferences. Its great to walk into a bar and not see Budweiser sings hanging. It is very close to a local university, so weekends nights get crowded. I was told by the staff that they usually get 4+ new beers in a week. Worth the drive not just from Orlando, but Daytona Beach as well. Food is amazing as well.
