An old-style bar serving craft beer in the middle of Miami Beach.
Loud, slightly smoky, small but comfortable.
Attentive and friendly staff working hard.
Music is thumping some serious rock and malt, I could here it across the street easily though the door was open. Dark inside with just a handful of dim lights and two bog flat screens working with a couple or ceiling fan lights to try to illuminate the place.
I liked the place but after one beer I had to beat feet due to the oncoming headache from the smoke and overall volume of conversation and music. I'll try earlier next time.
The brew selection is not numerous but it is well thought out.

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.

Stopped in for a couple during happy hour on a Tuesday night. During this time (4-7 pm) Abbey brewed beers are $4.50 (instead of $6.50-$7.50). I had two of the Abbey Immaculate IPA. It was pretty good. Not very hoppy or bitter for an IPA, but it was very drinkable and had some nice flavors of citrus and pine. The wife had a rasberry lambic. The bartender was very nice and accommodating. The place was laid back and has a comfortable seats up front near the entrance. By the bar it was pretty smoky inside. I will definitely stop in the next time I'm in this area, maybe to shoot some darts and try some of their other beers.
