The brewery is only a mile away from my apartment so I try to go as often as I can; especially when they have a beer release.

It's a great atmosphere to be in because the tasting room is not huge so you're surrounded by beer enthusiasts even when the place is relatively empty (I've never seen it actually empty).

The first time I went, my friend and I had to stand cramped into a corner of the room. Less than a year later though, the tasting room has almost doubled in size. It is much more comfortable and a lot more seating too. Plus they have extended their bar area.

As far as service goes, I get served pretty fast. I've never had to wait to order nor stand around while they assisted me.

The beer is great for a young brewery. You can get growlers of their five year-round brews only, which I consider the only bad thing. They have around ten or a little bit more beers on tap that you can drink too, which is also a plus.

Besides that, it's a great brewery and tasting room to visit if you're in town.

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.
