Stone IPA on draft. Enough said. And M-F, 2pm-7pm, it's 1/2 price at $2.25/pint. I have been now about 3 times. The first time, I spent about 15 minutes talking to the owner. I suggested to him that he try to get Torpedo on draft. He also stated that come fall/winter, he will have Celebration on draft. If that's the case, I may be there every night!!! Anyway, the owner is a very nice guy and was interested to hear from us about how to expand his selection. The place is a bit small now, but they are expanding into the next suite. The tap selection is great. Food is very decent - the California panini is awesome! Many different styles and more to come. Definitely a welcome site to the NW St. Johns area!!

I have not reviewed in a while, but I had to review this place.

1. Arrived, couldn’t find the door. There was a stage covering it. We had to walk through the whole outdoor smoke filled seating area. They can still smoke here?

2. It was 8 pm. 35 minute wait. Ok. Saw someone sit down outside, asked.. Oh just go sit out there. So we did.

3. Guy cleaned our table and I asked for a tap list. He said, what? Tap list? A bit louder... I’m sorry? List of beers on tap? Oh, it’s inside on the wall. This place is called taps and you don’t know what a tap list is?

4. Go inside to look at the wall, apologize to the people sitting under it. Mentioning they are in the wrong spot jokingly, pointing to the tap list. Get yelled at by a military man saying NO YOURE IN THE WRONG FUCKING SPOT! ... Um, sorry to bother you.

5. Order a double ipa and a regular ipa, nothing else really on tap I wanted. One beer comes out black. I ask the server, different one that didn’t know what a tap list was, is that the double ipa? Yes. Terrapin, I asked for the tomoka double ipa... Yes. Ok, I’m positive it isn’t.

6. Brings the right beer. 10 seconds later a VERY drunk man 60ish comes out the door and sways at our table and grabs something off of it. This yours? They were cigars left by someone else. I say, he can have them, so he falls into the empty seat and smells them. Stands, sways, has an awkward 5 minutes while I exchange looks with my better half. Then blurts out its not what he wants. Another 5 minutes... He lights up a cigarette and proceeds to smoke at our table. I look over and say to my partner, we should just get the check and go. and he left.

7. Every time the door opens I hear squeals from the poor audio from the band. I feel bad for them, it’s not their fault, it’s the system, it is horrible.

8. Woman comes out and smokes on the empty chair next to me. Not at our table, so ok, I guess. She finishes, puts the butt in the tray on our table and goes inside.

9. We get the check and leave.

I'm new to the area and I was very pleased to find a place so close to home. The atmosphere is great and the locals are all very friendly. They do not have a huge selection of craft beer on tap but they seem to have 6 - 9 good beers (several from local breweries) and a few good bottles. The food is also very good and they have live music a few times a week. Overall - Great place but I would like to see a few more craft beers on tap (since they seem to have had a least 3 taps with nothing on them).
