I frequent the Pensacola Bay Brewery pretty often. It is my favorite bar in the Pensacola area, mostly because of the excellent quality of their selection of beers. Whenever I have friends or family visiting, I always bring them here. I enjoy their fine selection of beer, but usually find myself sticking to my favorites: The De Luna Extra Pale Ale and the Lil Napoleon IPA. Their Conquistador Doppelbock is my overall favorite, but it is a seasonal beer so it's availability is limited. They also have a sampler, which is great because you can try all the beers they have on tap.

The location itself is in a nice, downtown area of Pensacola and the bar itself is very nice, open, and clean. The staff is always nice and friendly. (Whom I believe to be the owner of the bar) is always happy to tell you about the beers on tap and if you inquire will talk about future brews he has planned to be on tap.

Overall, Pensacola Bay Brewery is a nice, welcoming bar to bring your friends to, enjoy a pint and enjoy some good microbrews. If you are a beer enthusiast, this is definitely not a brewery to pass up if you are in the area. (1,131 characters)

Small taproom in the middle of an historic area of Pensacola. TV behind the bar had South Park on when we walked in! Seriously awesome!! They had 4 special taproom only releases along with their core beers including a barrel aged porter which was delicious. Really fun place! (275 characters)

Being from Vermont I was happy to have a local brewery when I moved to the area. Before writing this review I made two trips to the brewery just for drinks not a tour. Both times I found the vibe to be ok. The first was on the fourth of July and everyone was in good spirits but the second time was a week night. During this trip the people in the bar area were all talking and laughing the bar tender did not want to be bothered with questions about their products and did not seem knowledgeable. She had her face buried in her phone sitting in the corner. Overall I don't know if I will go back because I can find Pensacola Bay Beer and other great beers a short walk away where the service is friendly and fun. (719 characters)

Great little spot away from the hustle of Seville Quarter. The only gave us a tour and explained the history. The beer is GREAT!! With around 7 beers on tap when i visited, it gave ample selection. (197 characters)

Highly recommend stopping by this small brewery. While it might be small they produce an excellent selection of quality beers. The taproom has a nice vibe and the staff were extremely nice. Their Black Treasure Porter that is aged in whiskey barrels is amazing. I will definitely return to this brewery in the future when I am back in the area. (344 characters)

Great place to stop by if you are visiting or live in the Pensacola Bay area and everyone is very friendly inside don't be intimidated by the full bar of regulars that frequent the brewery to relax or get their growlers filled. Dog friendly environment so bring your best friend with you if you decide to make the venture. They have no food there and I have always thought it would be a good idea for them to open a small kitchen with pub food or sandwiches. Service is good and prices drop on Mondays. (502 characters)
