A surprisingly small and tremendously crowded taproom. The inside bar area was literally packed wall to wall with people and while there was a bit more breathing room outside, it was not much more pleasant considering how hot it is in Gainvesville in August. Despite the lack of space and airconditioning, it is nicely done and has some potential if they ever expand their hours enough that you could come during the off hours.

The beer was of course quite good, but the selection was not tremendous. Aside from the standard Swamp Head beers that you could find anywhere in town, the only special beer they had on tap was 10-10-100 (100th batch special DIPA). I am glad I had the chance to check the place out, but I don't see much point in going back until they expand a bit and perhaps begin to offer a few more brewery exclusives on tap.

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.
