I liked the atmosphere. They have a nice big bar with a long line of tap handles behind it dispensing a lot of interesting and unusual beers. Hopheads will be very happy with the selection. I had a Weihenstephan - Korbinian dopplebock, a Cigar City - Jai Alai IPA, a Dogfish Head - 60min IPA and a Wexford - Irish Cream Ale. They also had Great Divide - Hercules Double IPA, 2010 Bigfoot Barleywine Style Ale, Bells Two Hearted and Victory Hop Devil on tap. They had a cask of Victory Hop Wallop. Those are all favorites of mine.
I had the fish & chips, which was very well done. The big fish fillet was perfectly beer battered, and fried crisp, not greasy. A lot of people were ordering chicken wings. They use extra-large size chicken wings, and the people next to me had some, and were raving about how good they were.
There is nowhere else in the area that I know of with this type of selection of beers on tap. The bartender was friendly, but seemed overwhelmed.

There is a reason you see so many high ratings here compared to the other craft places in Brevard. It's the best of the best. There are other great places to go for beer, but no one can touch Coasters.
The atmosphere is much quieter than the competition, and although their beer menu isn't quite as vast as some of the others, they make up for it in quality. What do I mean by that? Somehow, the owners (Dave and Joe) have connections. They get brews that you can't get anywhere else. It's a given that they'll have whatever limited releases come to Florida, but you will be amazed at the stuff that they get that's not released in Florida. They boast, "Only bar in the state to get a keg of XYZ" all the time. They recently got the second of two kegs of a limited Stone release that was only available in one other place in the US...at Stone Brewery!
Check out their Biergarten in the back...somehow they managed to create a beautiful landscaped German biergarten in the middle of a strip mall rear parking lot. It's secluded and sectioned off with a huge white fence so you'd never know it! Totally awesome job guys!
Food quality is off the charts. I'm quite partial to their exotic meat specials. Where else can you enjoy a rare cask beer (they have a cask beer on tap all the time) while eating a kangaroo burger? I've also had llama and elk...the choices change regularly.
This is the place to be ladies and gentlemen. Check it out, you won't be disappointed.

I love Coasters Pub. Its one of my favorite places to get good food and good beer. The beer list is constantly changing with new and exciting beers. They have an amazing selections of beers on tap, beers that are rare to find. The food is also very good and reasonably priced. I go to coasters as much as I can. The waitresses and bartenders know the beer very well, along with proper food pairings. The servers get to know their customers and offer different suggestions they think you'll enjoy. Ive never had a bad experience, bad food or bad beer from Coasters. Best place to have a good time in Brevard County. Also, the biergarten is AMAZING!

I had given up on finding anything interesting to drink in Melbourne when I visited Coaster's pub. The interior has character and the waitress behind the bar (Cheryl) was awesome. She recommended beers and gave me samples to try, and provided excellent service.
They have almost 40 taps and I was told by the locals that over half of them change on a regular basis.
They have some VERY interesting beers on draft including Great Divide's Hercules Double IPA (FANTASTIC if you like the double IPAs), 2 Barley wines and an American Imperial Stout that was aged for 6 months in Scotch Whiskey barrels.
They had several outstanding Belgian ales and some good local brews too such as Cigar City's IPA.
This pub was a truly welcome find.

Coasters is the place to go around Melbourne. The owner is a BA himself and seems to have his finger on the pulse of what we want to drink. You seat yourself and it doesn't take long to get a beer. They routinely age their kegs, you can get a 2011 and 2010 pint of Big Foot as an example. They have a good bottle selection which includes some rarities. They have Black Albert (god knows how they got it), and I've seen and empty bottle of Westy 12 which I will be inquiring about. The Selection changes and they update you via facebook. I don't care to look at the selection anymore because I know I will find something good. Every friday they tap a cask of some rare brew. They have a Belgium beer fest once a year...Cigar City brews a dubbel specifically for Coasters.
The food is incredible, I usually get their french dip or Burger...amazing! I love the place. Keep it up!
