After an unsuccessful trip to the Room, which was closed on a Thursday night, on the other side of Miami Beach we drove over to this delight of a little establishment. We almost walked past as it has only a small amount of frontage to the street, but when you enter this small local establishment you can't help but think of your local pub at home. There are less than 12 seats at the bar and only a half dozen booths. Thee beer selection is solid for the 25 selections they offer in bottle/cans. The draft selection is about 10 with one on cask. The night we were there it was Hobgoblin and I found it to be quite nice. I had a bottle a few days later and found it only half as nice, so either their cask pours well, or that's a beer to have on cask. The service was good and the pours were clean and in appropriate glassware. I'll certainly go back next time I'm in the area.

As a bar, it was a nice change from the pretentious South Beach. As a craft beer bar, which is what I was looking for, it fell way short. Draught selection was poor. They had a lot of bottles, which I really didn't even get into, because I was looking for fresh draft beer. They have several house beers, but considering the name, I don't even think they brew anything themselves. I sampled a few of them and none were impressive. They only had about 10-12 lines, and the other options weren't great. It's just off the main strip which is Lincoln Rd. Nice location on a quiet block. Decent, friendly crowd. Moderately priced, but some were on the higher end. Some draughts were $12. St. Bernardus, I believe, and a few others. And that's for a goblet. My impression that the Abbey Brewing name is that it's a gimmick to lure in the craft beer crowd. But, to someone like myself, who considers him self an entry level aficionado, it was a let down.

Nice place on the beach, carries some nice beers on tap. Normally they serve some of their own beers, made for Abbey Brewing, as well as other beers. A beer bottle menu is also available, loaded with Belgian ales and some craft beer.

Also available, liquor.

If I would have written a review years ago when I learned of this place I would have described it as a go to tiny dive bar. Not much has changed, but they have had great success and have managed to expand quite a bit. The atmosphere is laid back, dim, yet quaint. It has a long wood bar as well as picnic tables to throw back your beer.

This cozy brewpub features 4 house brews, an additional 10 taps,1 rotating cask ale, and a very choice selection of 20 "world class" bottles. The bottles include 2 Rocheforts, 3 Chimays and 2 Westmalles.
Easy to find and walking distance from the beach (about 1/2 mile}. Small but has a remarkable variety of seating, including 7 seats at the bar, one large u-shaped couch, a few booths and tables. Great service. Relatively clean. Nice relaxed atmosphere. 2 good sized plasma TVs. No food.
