Wow. What a place. I would have never found it without my personal tourguide to alert me. Very eclectic mix of patrons...I didnt really dig the unisex bathroom. HAH...But that was my ONLY complaint. Brent was so very generous and I met a lot of nice people and tried some GREAT beers. Never before been anywhere where they open and generously share bottles of Lost Abbey. This is a must hit place. That is, if you can find it!
Great Place, great service, selection and prices. I look forward to my next trip there.

A true diamond in the rough. Lucky for us we looked up to the second floor because we had a hard time locating it. Once inside we were not disappointed this small but beer packed place to drink. You will not find those swill macros and you must have cash to drink. This is where my bachelor party started and I was very pleased to say I have been to the famous Redlight Redlight!
The little place that could. Small upstairs local bar makes up for the lack of style with a shocking great beer selection. Brent gets beer not normally found in FLA. Off street parking and cash only. No food. Cant wait to see what he can do with a bigger place later this year.

Simply the best place to visit in Orlando. Brent and his team know how to hook it up!!!

Great ambiance and good service. It is a tiny little bar that is hard to find, even if you have the address. They have an awesome bottle selection and great beers on tap. THEY SHOULD TELL YOU IT IS CASH ONLY. I didnít find out until it was time to settle up. No worries, though.
On my second trip in August 2008, the bartender made my friend and I wait in the pouring rain because it was 4:50, and not 5:00. She refused to let us in, and when she did we were very wet and only stayed for one round. Left me with a bad taste in my mouth for the bar.
A really great little beer bar and now gets a perfect rating from me because they went non smoking. The selection is ever changing, always interesting. I am always trying to drag coworkers over for a quick pint after work. Brent is a great guy (thanks for the free pint after forgetting the door was locked). The worst part is trying to figure out what to drink and if that is a problem, sign me up.
Oh its time for a re-rate of the new location! Bigger and roomier, and I was so pleased to see that Brent managed to keep the same vibe and feel of the old place. Still the rockinest place I know. Smoke free. Selection? Well Iíve not been to some of the worldís best, but the only place that rivals this selection that Iíve been to was Monks in Philly, and despite their great belgian selection, Redlight wins with Brentís efforts to bring in surprising kegs of you never know what. Rose gave us great and friendly service at the bar, and joined in our discussions and tastings. Brent was beyond generous. A huge thanks. Canít wait to come back.
Finally got a chance to visit Brentís place, and it was well worth the wait. Hard to find, but thanks to boboskiís awesome directions it was a breeze. Atmosphere is awesome, I would drink here every day if I lived close enough. Staff is super friendly. The girl who was there didnít know a lot about craft beer but she was friendly and very willing to listen and learn. Prices are out of this world, not sure how Brent makes any money. Selection is as good as it gets, Brent goes out of his way to get new and exciting stuff for the bar. Also they have a package license so any beer can be taken to go, which is something we donít see in Tampa. Best beer bar I have ever been to, hands down. This was the highlight of our 3 days there and worth the drive alone.
