New tap room at new brewery is huge! Same great vibe and people; now more space indoors and out, and more parking. Food trucks too! Whoohoo!

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.
