Unassuming location in a beachside strip mall. Great patio out back with grass and a garden for the kids to run around. Solid draft and bottle selection, great burgers, and good prices. Definitely a go-to place for locals.
Located in a strip mall near the beach, Coasters is the best choice for a decent mixture of handles, food and ambiance on the Space Coast. While the beer selection is not as stellar as found in some beer-centric establishments, it is decent considering the area. Service was attentive, the food was good, and the beer in good condition. Fun place that I’ll be sure to frequent when in town.
Inside is like an Irish style sports pub, out back is an authentic German beer garden. Staff was decently knowledgeable, must be tough to deal with locals who think Newcastle is a great beer. Couldn’t beat the selection anywhere else in town, but if you’re a craft beer fan, nothing mind blowing. Didn’t try the food, but looked like typical pub fare. A little pricier than in used to, but not crazy. Definitely the best place in the area.
Imagine a local sports bar on beer steriods, that’s Coaster’s. Local hangout favorite blocks from the beach.

Fun crowd for the Belgian Beer Festival. Lots of flat screen TVs (around twelve or thirteen) to watch college basketball and Olympic hockey. The mussels were very nice and the burger was very good and lean... like ground steak. The beer battered fries were also sublime. The service was very good and the selection was fantastic, but this was a special event. The staff wasn’t overly friendly, but I’ll give them a one-time pass on that. My wife and I will certainly be back.
A solid craft beer oasis, and maybe better guest tap selection than currently available in Orlando. Several really good taps, mostly from up North, and a well stocked bottle cooler. I think 100 bottles and about 35 taps, at a long bar. Selection is a winner anywhere. No drinking outside, but ambient light was good. Several tables about us, I was served in good time. The beer was served at a good temperature, the carbonation not aggressive. Had some Brooklyn and Terrapin. Not far from Indian Beach, and lots of parking.
Visited on Labor Day Weekend. Nice selection of taps (37 total) carrying some excellent craft and imported beers and 4-6 macros as well. Nice bottle selection as well some very difficult to locate at beer bars. Ambiance of the place is a typical sports bar with too many TVs that are too loud, but given the tap selection, we were able to overlook that for a few pints. My only complaint is that I was served a beer that was clearly not the beer I ordered (ordered a Brooklyn Grand Cru but served a beer that looked like a Bells Oberon ale). The server and the bartender both made it right and even went to the trouble of checking to make sure the correct keg was tapped. Given that they had St. Bernardus Abt 12 on tap, this seemed like a minor quibble. We didnt eat the food on this visit, but it looked and smelled good. Definitely worth a stop when you are in the area.
this is a very welcomed [place here on the space coast. service is very good and the beer selection is about the best inthe area. plenty of bottles to choose from if there is nothing in teh many taps you want to drinjk. i would expect a few more rare micros for such a large selection. i see it gettin g better though
