After finding the place, the bar is located in a house that looks like it was an original house built 150 years ago. A small bar and nice seating area, and you can sit outside and overlook all that is going on Duval street. All the taps there were craft, and a couple imports, with a huge bottle selection. DFH, Stone, Avery, Bell's, Cigar City, etc. The bartender was actually the owner and got talking to him. Really nice guy, knows his products, and wants a great selection. He said, you can get a BMC anywhere, I don't want that. A hidden gem that I made sure of to hit everyday while I was there.

Nice little spot on the main drag, plenty of choices just bring your wallet.

Cool local vibe. On the beaten path, but almost hidden in the corner. Dog-friendly and laid-back while also maintaining a hip, classy vibe. Great beer selection. (I would say best in Key West for on-premise drinking).

This has the best unique and a harder to find beers on tap on the entire island. World Of Beer has more taps but it isn't a careful selection of quality craft beers it is just run of the mill beers you can find on most craft tap lists. That is and should be the absolute main reason you visit The Porch. The bartenders are very knowledgable and nice and the porch is nice to sit on and relax. Check it out you will thank yourself!

It lived up to the reviews that I had read before heading down to the keys. They had an excellent selection and the environment was top notch. The servers were on top of their game and were very knowledgeable.

Grabbed a Deviant Dales and introduced a friend to a few beers he had never tried. I wish we spent more time there. I did grab a bottle of CCB MZ on my way out to bring home.

This place was a great change of pace from the local Key West scene. It is off Duval Street on a quiet block. It is an old house that has had the main level converted to a bar. Very tight inside, but we hung out on the porch a good bit. Went multiple times in our 4 night stay in Key West. Selection is not huge, but there are several good beers on tap including some FL locals. I would recommend to anyone in the area.

This is one of the best beer spots in Key West. The selection is wonderful with a full array from stouts to saissons. The staff is quite knowledgeable and are good at selecting the right beer for the client's needs. I highly recommend The Porch to anyone that visits the Keys.
