Atmosphere is college like, being next to Miami U. Quality was nice, some of the beers had some flaws but not readably noticable. Service was good, prompt order taking, with some lengthy delivery, yet it was band night. Although not very crowded. Food was good, nice selection with additional components(different sauces and such on the table). Selection was their own beers but they did have six on. Plus the brewer showed up and offered a sample of an upcoming brew a nice wit, never got to have finished product but it was a good establishment if in the area.

I have been coming to this place since 1999, and they have never disappointed. On this visit I had the bitter, IPA and Black IPA. All very good beers. The bitter had a nice grainy feel, could have stood to have slightly more malt backbone, but overall, quite palatable. I really enjoyed the White IPA. Very subtle hop flavor, some malt backbone. The finish is somewhat reminiscent of a Bell's Two Hearted in that its easy drinking. The food is average, but hey I never come here for that. The place is a little difficult to find, just remember to get on Ponce de Leon as it parallels US-1 at U of Miami.

Located right next to UM's campus and right across from US1, this brewpub had to fill big expectations for me as the only major brewpub in the south Miami region (that I've really seen) and it more or less delivered what I expected.
Atmosphere: First off, appearance of the brewery
the entire operation is completely view-able to anyone eating/drinking at Titanic (behind Glass), and it takes up a good portion of the bars real estate. from bit shiny copper boilers to giant stainless connicle fermentors, the place is eye candy to any homebrewer (as well as interesting to the non-brewer crowd). It obvious from all the well designed, Shiny, and well placed equipment, That Titanic is Serious about brewing and wears its brewpub badge with pride.
besides the brewery, the entire place strives to give off the appearance of being on a ship and it works. Cool odds and ends decorate the walls, and any section not having something cool on it is dedicated to brewing equipment
I give this one a 5/5
Its a beautiful restaurant, bar, and brewery
Quality: the quality of the restaurant is quite high.
Service: excellent. we got our food and drinks very fast.
selection: they do have a limited selection of beers, with most of the focus on their house brews. However, their quite good brews, so I have to say that it was satisfactory.
-Disclaimer! a vegetarian perspective!-
the menu at Titanic is very heavily geared to fish eaters (as one might expect from the name Titanic), but for vegie eaters like me their is a large selection of to chose from, and the quality is top notch
each of their burgers can be substituted for a Veggie burger (which I did not try but will be ordering next time I head in). they also have a decent selection of salads that can easily be modified to accommodate a vegetarian, as well as a mushroom sandwich that looks VERY interesting.
I ordered a cobb salad with the Turkey and Bacon removed. Even though I was preoccupied with the beer and making notes, it was still a very delicious salad, even if it did feel a buck or two over priced. the dressing was excellent, presentation good, and overall it was a pretty fresh salad.
No regrets on the order but, once again, it did feel a bit over priced for what I got (considering that I opted out of the meat).
Speaking of meat, lets get to the bulk of the review. the Brewery itself.
-The Brew house-
As a homebrewer myself, the first thing I wanted to look at was, well, their brewing operations...and if that is what you want to see then Titanic Delivers!
Price: The price is not too bad. Could be better, but for what you get its rather nice. a good Oasis in the brewing desert that is Tallahassee.

6 pm on a Wednesday. Bar is half full, tables starting to fill up as well.
Service friendly enough but not great. It's fairly loud considering how few people are in here, maybe 20. Can't imagine it with a full, University of Miami crowd!
10 of their own brews on tap, 6 regular and 4 seasonal, plus 2 guest taps.
Food is a bit pricey for what you get. Standard fries ($3) with a sandwich ($9). The Grecian Grill is flavorful and well done with a portonello (or chicken), red peppers, feta and lettuce on naan bread. Good portion size.
Beers are fresh and quite good. (Hey, LOCB like it!) Only problem is how long it takes to get here. I was in downtown and it took an hour to go less than 10 miles. Life in the big city I guess.
The chocolate pecan pie (warm) is well worth it, especially with the oatmeal stout.

I am in town for the week to see the Red Sox in Miami. Doing my best to hit up beer centric places. Found this place in the Southern Beer News and made a point to hit it up while I was in town.
Typical brew pub like Beer Works in Boston. They are located right next to University of Miami too. All the brewing equipment is located in two rooms with clear glass so patrons can look in. They have plaques of all the medals they have one and pictures throughout the whole brewpub.
I ended up going in the middle of the day so service was good and I got a chance to talk to the brewmaster who ended up being from Maine.
The quality of beer was good since they draw beer right off of the conditioning tank. I had the IPA and unfiltered Imperial. Delicious stuff and good to try and East Coast take on these two styles.
The selection is limited, but they do carry some guest breweries on tap from time to time. They also have wine and a full bar too. Overall value was very reasonable too. Average brewpub prices and I am happy to have had the chance to go to this place before busting out of town.

Food menu is fairly small and the items are relatively high in price, granted the quality is solid. Beer menu is also somewhat small, but good. House brews can hold their own, and the house specialties and guest drafts rotate monthly.
Service is hit or miss at the tables, and gets pretty dodgy when they're busiest. Despite the small staff size and work load, they're generally considerate and helpful.
Overall, solid brewpub tucked into a small spot practically right on UM's campus. It's fairly small and gets a good amount of business, which can cause issues for larger groups. Either way, though, can't beat the location's convenience as a UM student.

Seeing as how Titanic Brewing Company is right next to my law school (University of Miami), I come here on a regular basis.
The atmosphere is nice. Great bar feel to it, which is really what I want in a place like this. Kind of hard to see the TVs, so if you're coming to watch a game or something, you're better off going to other places.
Quality is what it is. It's college-run, so sometimes you get a really attentive waitress and other times they act like, and all but say, they have better things to do than help you. So, in reality, it's a lot like any place you go.
Service, see above. The quality and service go hand in hand for me.
As for the selection, they tend to keep their house brews on tap regularly. I'm not a big fan of their beers, most are too weak for me. They offer your typical light ale (like an BMC product), nut brown, a bitter, a rye ale, an ipa, and an oatmeal stout. It's always nice to go, get the porthole sampler and see what beers taste the best today. Then order a pint of that. The place also has a rotating selection of guest beers (Gordon from Oskar Blues, Arrogant, etc.), so if you get tired of their home brews (and you will), you can always go to a sturdy favorite.
The food redeems this place. They have really gnarly burgers that they allow you to customize on Tuesdays for around $6. They also have some delicious Sriracha hot wings, and their soft shell po-boys are probably my favorite food in Miami. Love the food, like the beer. It's a win-win.
As for the value, I'm from east TN, I'm not used to paying "Miami Prices," so for me the place seems pricey, but to others, it seems cheap. So I'm splitting the difference and giving it a $$ (reasonable).
If you're ever in the Gables, come try the place. The bartenders are usually really friendly and, hey, it's right next to UM, you can't beat the convenience.

The wide, green and yellow front had their name above the windows to the right, facing, that showcased the Grain Room and the copper-clad brew house. The doorway was center and opened onto the m.d.s. to the right-oblique. The left side windows looked in on a group of tables and chairs that were on a roped-off platform up a couple of short steps. It would be like drinking in a fishbowl. The "U"-shaped polished wood bar was at a left-oblique to the entry. The restaurant area which consisted of padded benches fronted by standard tables and chairs along both walls and standard tables and chairs center was off to the right, past the m.d.s. Also off to the right, all of the way aft, were the lavs and the kitchen. The back bar was used to display their logo items as well as their Mug Club mugs. It also fronted 4 FVs to the left and 10 SVs also left. Dig for the nautical theme! Don't sink!
Beers: Standards - Tripe Screw Light Ale; Boiler Room Nut Brown; Brittanic Best Bitter; CAPT Smith's Rye; White Star IPA; Ship Builders' Oatmeal Stout.
Seasonals: Turbine Steamship; Tripel Reserve; 2X Ultra IPA, plus a few guests.

I stopped in while in the area on business.
TBC is right by U Miami. It's got a traditional English pub atmosphere (dark woods, red walls, worn wood floors and low lighting) with a nautical theme (and some sports mixed in there). There's a bar area with a large, comfortable bar and a separate table area. I was there on a Sunday afternoon and they had a few NFL games on.
They had 6 - 8 of their own beers on tap plus a few guests. I went with their IPA and it was pretty good.
This is one of those tough ones to review. FL beer options are limited so this one is high with that in mind but compared to other places I've been, it's closer to average. I tried to balance the two. I think it's very good given the area.

Finally went to this place after hearing about it for so long, more for the live music than the beer. Went with my g/f and ordered the sampler as she is a beer lover as well. I must say, as a brewery, they have their own distinct flavor, all their beers will have a touch of it. With that said, I can't say I am fond of their catalog, but...
Their Triple Screw light ale was the one my g/f liked the most, she had 3, I believe, and while there we saw quite a few folks at the bar having the same, it's apparently very popular. I tried it and it wasn't bad at all but I'm not a fan of light pale ales. The other beers in the sampler weren't that memorable but the IPA they brew (White Star India Pale Ale) was horrible and left a really nasty taste in both of our mouths, very hoppy and cloying (to be fair, I'm not very familiar with IPA's this may be a normal taste).
Now, the Shipbuilders Oatmeal Stout was heaven in a glass. If I recall correctly, I had about 5 pints that night though dinner and the bands first set. It was smooth with a heavy roasted malt, coffee flavor that grew on me with every glass.
There was one beer they happened to be out of that night, if I'm not mistaken it was the Captain Smiths Rye Ale, but they were nice enough to allow me to sample of a couple of their guest beers, Ignorant Bastard and I forgot what else. I didn't like either but in all fairness I loved the Oatmeal Stout so much that it didn't matter.
The atmosphere was nice, the service was great, the food was wonderful (I had some really good wings and my g/f had kick-ass fish and chips) and the beer was tasty. If you're a beer lover and you're in the Miami area check this place out, have the sampler and a bite to eat, you will not be disappointed- they have been there for years for a reason. Personally, I plan on returning soon and taking some friends with me.
ps... forgive my lack of beer specifics, I'm still new at this :)
