Your seriously-into-wine and beer geek friends? You might not want to take them here.
They will probably get mad at you. They will roll up in their (tiny) tasting room and expect a, b, and c. They will get a lot of really simple, barely qualifies as wine, super sweet juice from bottles. Then they will probably be all like "WHY DID WE COME HERE?"
But your guests from out of town? Uncle Bob? Aunt Marge? Mom and Dad? They're gonna love this place.
Go on the weekend and take a tour of the new Brewery. Have wine tasting, and maybe a beer tasting. Their patio and gardens are genuinely impressive and serene.

This may be the most desolate brewery I've ever been to. It's about five miles from the entrance of the Everglades National Park. Around it are farms growing various summer vegetables in December.
The emphasis is on the winery, which I didn't taste. If you've ever been to a California winery, you'll get a sense of the atmosphere. One walks into a large room where there are various tasting areas. All of which are designed to have you purchase your favorite wine. Off to the side, is a single 12 foot long bar featuring four brews on tap. For $14.98, you can try a 3-4 ounce sampling of each, receive a pint of your favorite and keep the souvenir pint glass (which touts this place as the Southernmost Brewery. Don't worry about Hawai'i, they came in late.)
The beers are fresh but rather run-of-the-mill. I found the Big Rod Key West Ale interesting in that it featured coconut--a flavor I never considered to put into a beer. True to local preferences, the most popular beers are light-bodied, light-colored, and light in the flavor department.
I liked the English-styled IPA, which is something of a rarity in the US, but particularly surprising here in South Florida.
Again, this is a tasting room--there was no food available. If you are going to the Everglades, this is worth a stop, but I wouldn't go out of my way to seek this out.
