My wife and I are on vacation and this is the opening weekend for this place. I must say this place surprised me when I went in. A few people on a Friday night. Not very crowded. A small bar indeed but is comfy. Amazing tap selection and to my surprise not loaded with macro's. Chimay,Two hearted also local breweries from Cigar city to Dunedin. Out of there 40 taps one macro of Bud Light.

The service is amazing the bartender's walk over to your table and ask what you need when they aren't busy. Some of the best service I have ever received at a bar. They actually take the extra effort to pour into the proper glassware and serve at the proper temperature. Always a plus.

The only downside is that they don't serve food. You have to walk down the strip to the pizza place.

A very nice place for BA's to gather and the staff was very helpful and friendly.If you are in the area and you want some good beer stop in.

This is the best craft beer bar I have been to. Bartenders pour a really good beer and are very good at matching people with beers they are interested in. Fun environment, event nights are very fun. Prices are very good comparable to other bars. People also frequently bring bottles for bar and staff to try out.

Willard's is a small place located in a strip mall off a main drag. It was a bit on the grungy and dark side, even on a sunny afternoon. There was a U-shaped bar that seated 16-18 people, 10 high top tables, and a couple regular tables. Two TVs. The decor consisted of collections of bottles and coasters.
My wife and I arrived on a Wednesday afternoon, shortly after they had opened. They were cleaning lines, so the selection was limited, at least initially. More beers quickly became available. There were 40 beers on tap. Ten of these were called the Local 10, and these included local beers such as 7th Sun, Cigar City, Swamp Head, Cycle, Barley Mow, and Dunedin. A nice touch. The blackboard with the beer listings included the ABV and was color-coded, also a nice touch. We had a couple Jai Alai IPAs, one of my favorites.
We spent a pleasant time there. Excellent beer selection. Service was adequate. It looked like you needed to be a local to get the better service.
