Wow what a cool place.I just read and must aggree with Crizay.Thanx chris.My expierience was slightly different.I stopped at 3 in the afternoon and one of the partners was pouring beers and gave us a tour.i came back a couple hours later with other people and we met the Brewmaster, Ed and he also gave us a tour.Great beers on tap and their own beers are great.As the sun went down it started to get a little busier.I even ran into Brent from Redlight Redlight there.This is a must stop for all beer geeks that either live here or are stopping by.They do have darts in one room and although they donít serve food you canít smoke in there.They do have a smoking lounge, its called the parking lot.Interesting note is that if you are hungry no need to go anywhere.They have a takeout menu from the local restaurants that will deliver to you.You pay the delivery guy not the bar.donít forget to say hi to Alyshia your friendly and knowledgable bartender.

Just an awesome place, as we were driving down Atlanta Ave. I thought we were lost until we called him and he saw us drive by, itís on an Industrial Parkway. Walk in and see 2 dogs in there and this place is clean, it really is a Brewery and Tap Room thatís it. The beer was amazing, every one of them were great 21 on tap 8 of them OBP Beers. The brewer himself was serving us and then out of nowhere said itís time for a tour of the brewery. I was blown away by this place, itís not a big hangout and not a lot of people are there, it just is what it is a brewery where you can drink there beer plus the guest taps were all amazing stuff Iíve never seen on tap. I really will make the 1 1/2 hour drive to go here again, just amazing, I loved it.
The ONLY place in Orlando with some semblance of soul I visited last week (granted, I was in timeshare and disney hell with the family all week, where good karma is hard to find). Non-descript warehouse in an industrial area (wife was like, "where the hell are we going!?"). Surprised by the nice, allbeit rather plain atmosphere. Prolly better than some faux finished place we had been.
I walked in and was immediately greeted by one of the owners. Unfortunately, their highly esteemed ídryí porter was not on, but both IPAís I tried were very good. John gave me a brewery tour, welcomed the kids, and had a freeking hot female bartender. If you are in Orlando visiting, and need a place to escape Orlando, find this place!

Update: Ive seen more of the world, still good beer, but not out of this world.
THIS IS THE BEST BEER Iíve HAD anywhere! They have pasion for their beer... free tour, great tour at that. They want to make sure you have beer with you. Then they even let us taste right from the final kegs. I hate orlando, but canít wait to go back to this place!
Visited on a Thursday night. If I didnít know where this place was, I would never have found it. Not a place you just stumble into. Basically a warehouse with a few tables, a bar, and some impressive taps. They had 11 of their own beers on tap, plus several guest beers, such as Chimay, Frambozen, and Bigfoot. Their beers were all drinkable at worst and pretty good at best. Their Doble Imperial IPA was the best. The service was pretty decent, and it didnít hurt that the bartender was smoking hot. This isnít really a brewpub though as they donít serve food. The only real complaint I would have is that they donít have any beer to go besides kegs and full gallon (not the normal half-gallon) growlers. Other than that, go and get a Miami Weiss and see the most unfiltered unfiltered wheat Iíve ever seen.
Went here on my birthday with some friends. Blackwater is probably my favorite. John is a great guy, and so is the brewmaster. They both gave me and dragonstout a tour of the joint. You can play darts, but beware of the exterior door entrance. Have fairly descent music in there, but no tvs. Alisha the bartender seems to know here stuff when it come to beer. It is also hard to find. Located off of kaley ave. Middle of a industrial park.
I also would like to say that Krystal was awesome. She was able to answer all my questions and then some. She was very knowledgeable of all the brews. Although the area wasnít that great, the atmosphere of a brewery/bar was applealing. I enjoyed this place and will definitely make this a must stop everytime Iím in the area. The beers were good too...
The sampler was fair priced. Tried five brews, the Doble IPA met the standard. the the others missed. Check out what the regulars are having before ordering a pint. The hot ticket is ask for tastes rather than ordering a sampler flight. As always tip your server.
