Awesome atmosphere: it’s one big room with high ceilings and a stage that seems always ready and set up for bands. Has a real punk rock ambiance, and a cool "no hippies" sign. Disappointing beers but a fun place that I would very much like to revisit.

Nice vibe in here. Good mix of locals. Airy place, high ceilings, obviously has some house character. The beers were a little lacking. I actually liked the coffee beer the best, which was the long odds. I’d go back, but a guest tap with some hops would go a long way to making me happy. The best beer I’ve had from this brewery was at Redlight, which is kind of silly if you ask me.
Interesting little pub with many smallish rooms with different atmospheres. On a weekend lunch, the crowd was a fun blend of student groups and young families. Close to 7venth Sun, so it makes sense to combine and grab a meal here. Beers are okay, not very modern, but well-brewed in general. Just do not expect to be surprised, but sometimes you’re not in the mood for that. Okay sandwiches. Service was good.
Fun night spot- live music inside the brewery. Tables set up next to the fermentation vessels. Smaller tap list with house beers and local Florida guest beers. There was food but we didn’t try any. House beers were okay. No real tasting flight is offered but they allow you to get small plastic samples of their beers. Great ambiance. Obviously has a local following.
Crazy atmosphere late on a Saturday night. No flights this late but they do them earlier. The DIPA is awesome. Live music this night. Chicken wrap was killer - first layer all the way around was a thick layer of cheese - hell yeah.
New visit on January 19, 2014. Walked over from 7venth Sun. Sat in the back room, sampled 4 or 5 beers in a flight. Ate some smoked pulled pork wrap that was excellent. Good service, though the place was fairly packed. Nice place for both food and beer.
First visit: January or February 2011. Pretty good stuff here, had two sampler plates for a total of 12 beers rated. Had a nice burger for food. Place is not too big though, we were there fairly early a Sunday, but I guess it can get pretty packed. Nice beers, good service.
Remodeled garage building of Douglas on the left of road. Parking in the front. Clean pub format with bar in the center back with tables for food in the front and patio for summer. Brewing tanks directly in front of you and they were doing some constrution during our visit. Freindly service with good knowledge of brews. Good sampler selection of 11 above average to average brews. Good menu of starters and sandwichs. Kettle potato chips and spicy wrap were very good.
Will stop again when in the area.
A very rustic and homey brewery with a large tasting room/pub servic basic fare. Definite Celtic influence...was there during some sort of dog fest in Dunedin, so beer was served in plastic glasses. About 14 taps of their beers. Beers are OK. Free samples are available.
