Had 3 different cream ales on tap out of 7 available the day I went, so selection was mediocre. Good pumpkin ale, and a decent pale ale. Tap room is modest size, but kind of a mish mash. Service was fantastic all around and they've got some great people working there!

Visited on Saturday September 5, 2015.

Excellent vibe, indoor and outdoor bars. The only bar I've been to were you are actually encourage to walk behind the bar. Every employee treated you like a regular.

They give you a free sampler, which I believe was supposed to be 6 beers but he gave us 8 - all the beers they currently had on tap.

The tour is where this place really shines. We were able to snag a tour with just my two friends and I - with one of the founders. Awesome dude, very informative tour about brewing. For those of us who already have a handle on the brew process, he was willing to dig deeper and talk about the business side of things.

The brews were reasonably priced from $3.50 to $5.50. Overall, visit if you want to be treated like family, grab some brews and food, play some games, and take an awesome tour.

Friendly and fun place to drink beer. First timers get a free tasting flight. Also the free tours on Saturday are informative if you want to learn more about beer. The tasting room is on the small side, but has a bar and tables with board games you can play. You can also sit outside or in a large area that is covered. We went before the food truck was serving, but I have heard it is good. Often have live music on the weekends. Liked the Mad Manatee IPA and Duke's Ale the best.

Always nice people, great cookout food, board games. I'm not into the bicycle crowd but I recommend stopping by for some good old school beers. Manatee is the way to go!

Got a private tour of the brewery the last time I went. They have a great setup. The staff is very helpful and their prices are very reasonable. The selection is not as robust as other breweries that I have visited but the quality is great. They need a stout or porter on tap!

I didn't really feel this brewery. The beers were too wheaty to my palate, and I felt that I was drinking a six pack from the supermarket. Not very different than the norm, very conservative and without any bold flavors.

The only beer that I liked a bit was their red, which coincidentally is their most popular one. Other than that, everything is bland. Maybe this is the alternative to it all. Maybe this is the little sister/brother brewery. I don't know, I wasn't crazy about it.
