This is one of my favorite bars. The beer is great, very good original live musical acts; bands that play stuff other than top 40 rock or oldies (love that) Good food. Just a fun all around place. First Friday of every month is the best time to visit. Every beer and holiday event is really put together well. Dunedin is lucky to have a Brewery like this.
Visited as part of Stogies And Stouts. That alone was a GREAT value. 25 bucks for a souvenir glass, a cigar, as many four ounce samples as I wanted with at least 29 different beers. Food given out was great, with a nod to the artichoke dip. AWESOME. Atmosphere was fun, relaxed, and very Scotish eclectic. I loved it. This was one of the BEST beer events I have attended. I will be back to try it on a normal day.
Great place to visit!!! A band was playing and it was pretty packed especially for a sunday night. Got a tour from Travis and got to try their barley wine with was great. A definite place to check out if youíre in the area!
Awesome atmosphere: itís 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. Iíd go back, but a guest tap with some hops would go a long way to making me happy. The best beer Iíve had from this brewery was at Redlight, which is kind of silly if you ask me.
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.
Above all, great location right in the heart of Dunedin. Ambiance is very good, even when I went on a Tuesday night with live music and plenty of places to sit. Wooden outdoor deck seating is available for smoking. There were 8-10 beers on tap when I was there, including a couple of seasonals. Prices ranged from $2.50 for an 8oz to $4.50-5.00 for a pint, and $16.00 for a pitcher so value was decent. There are really very few other cool places in this area so this really stands out as a good alternative.
Great little brewery restaurant. I had a great time, enjoyed the ambiance of the place, and the food was very good. Iíd recommend this place to anyone who visits the Tampa/St. Pete area. Try the Beach Tale Brown Ale.
Garage turned into a brewery. Very nice clean interior with the brewing equipment situated just next to the dining area. Lots of brewing and rock and roll articles hung everywhere. Small stage in the center of the room. Many of the Dunedin styles on draft to choose from in addition to a few guest taps. The beer is very good and wide ranging in style. The food is standard brewpub fare, but good and reasonably priced. Overall, a very nice brewpub worth the stop.
Truly a local gem. There is a diverse and easy to navigate selection of most styles available here. Youíll see for yourself that pride lives here and the locals that know support them. Not mention you can easily find yourself having the time of your life at one of the many fun events or shows that pop up at a momentís notice. The food is fresh and consistent....and if you want to just chill slip out back to the schweet deck and take a load off.
