Drove down from Jacksonville for a visit to Swamp Head. They had their 5 regulars on and two extras, the Springboard and the 10-10-100. The space wasn't too hard to find. I went to UF so I had a general idea of where it was and despite making a wrong turn, I made it. I parked on the road about 7pm but there were actually plenty of spots up front. I imagine if you arrive around 5 to 630 that wouldnt be the case. The inside space is tight. It is also small due to the fact that they seem to be very popular. Mostly standing room and the indoors is relatively well air conditioned. The staff is very friendly and were working their tails off to keep up. The beer selection was very good and broad in their choices. Prices were standard for most tap rooms. They do well for what they have to work with, which isn't a whole lot, but I definitely will be coming back down in the future.

Reviewing from notes. Visited late afternoon in October and found the tap room of this working brewery hopping. A significant portion of the visitors were filling their growlers as this was a Thursday prior to a home football game in Gainesville. Everyone was friendly and the beer servers knowledgable and attentive. Sampled a number of brewery only beers and found all to be at least solid and some great. Will definitely visit again.

It's located in a smaller industrial yard, right off of 75 in Gainesville. Smaller tasting room, but plenty of selection and bar wares for sale. Got myself a Swamp Head growler and a couple of mini-snifters. Neat space, and it looks like they are doing things right. Had a very pleasant visit. Good service, nice bartenders.

9/19/14: Headed home from vacation, made my mandatory stop at Swamp Head. Enjoyed a Wild Night, then started hitting the Octoberfest and Midnight Oil. Beers were as good as always- a darn shame a distributor in South FL doesn't give this place a shot, we could use this stuff down home. Early Friday evening, so they were hard pressed keeping up with the growler fills-lots of gallon jugs moving in and out. Happy happy joy joy.
