Been here several times but it is time for a review.

A - Walk in the front door you will pass a glass entryway. They have their growlers (32 oz and 1 gallon) displayed so you know what you can get. The bar itself is around 100 years old that I believe they transported from somewhere up north. Very nice look. Huge L shaped bar. The brewery equipment is near the back and gleams in the light. Excellent atmosphere.

Q - I have had every beer including their seasonals here and they all are good to excellent. They are served in their proper glasses at the appropriate temperature.

Selection - They always have 6 of their own brews on tap. There are some standards like Der Chancellor (Kolsch), Terminally Ale (Brown Ale), Gnarly Barley (APA). They also have a Big Hitter that changes (this trip it was a Bourbon Barrel Milk Stout) and a Julio's Hefeweizen (this time a traditional German). The guests taps were Dales Pale, DH Festina Peche, Monk in the Trunk, Woodchuck Cider and one I cant recall. They have wine too if thats for you.

Service - Excellent. The bartenders (two women I always see and damn if I can recall the names) are friendly and always happy to see you. They know their brews too. Matt (the brewmaster) is always there and is glad to talk beer and show you the equipment.

F - They do not have food technically on site but you can order off a menu from the Corner Cafe right next door and eat it in the bar. Menu is basic but good with items like fish dip, burgers, quesadilla, chips etc.

This place is extremely reasonable prices. Filled two growlers today (32 ozers) and had 2 beers for 20 bucks. This is a must stop if your in Tequesta. You will not be disappointed.

the scores here do no justice to this place. the vibe is cool, i mean, really cool, dim lit long wooden bar with the brewery in the back, active on a wednesday afternoon. smelled great in there! there werent many people, so an uninterested and slightly uninformed bartended seemed out of place, but there was plenty of comfy couches and chairs to sit down and take a load off, and the beers were truly delicious, even though there werent a ton of them on tap. they had a handful of guest taps from their new sister brewery, but also had maybe five or six of their own. all the base beers were solid, and they have a rotating big beer, and a rotating wheat bases beer. i saw barrels in the back, and the friendly brewer told me it was a sour project thats in its infancy, so looks like they are evolving pretty quickly. i saw a ton of tap handles in pubs around the area too, so their beers are definitely penetrating the local market. i had fun here, wasnt floored by the inventiveness of the beer, but all were well made. i bet it pops off at night here. interesting to compare this with denver, where its one of the few breweries around. people there should frequent this place, its cool!

A great little brewery that makes some awesome beers. A tiny place to hang out, but have a multitude of taps serving up their own brews, as well as other breweries. Kind of tucked away in a strip mall, and it's right next to an awesome restaurant where you can go grab some good grub.

TBC's delicious fresh beer, awesome atmosphere (with that amazing restored antique bar), great service and cleanliness all contribute to the best brewery/bar around! TBC's selection is solid adding a "Heavy Hitter" (a rotating craft) and wine (perfect for my wife) to their house selections. Prices are reasonable. If you want food, bring anything you want in (which I love - Corner Cafe and Hog Snapper are a short walk away). Awesome place! Try it!

I heard about this place from a trading partner @heatwave33. I was in Orlando for a wedding and drove down to do an in person trade. Met him and his wife and their youngest at TBC. What a fantastic recommendation! This place is super cool looking. The brewery is open to the bar with a little half wall between, which allows you to see everything very clearly. Awesome set up. The sink faucet is a tap handle, which is a great touch. The bartender was very friendly and knowledgable before Steve and his wife showed up, and then once she saw that I was there with him, she became even more gracious. The part owner was very friendly as well. I was able to try everything they had on tap, and all were very good, some were great. A full flight (eight 6oz pours) and two pints and the tab was only like $12. I enjoyed this place quite a bit. Definitely need to thank @heatwave33 for the suggestion.

This brewery keeps cranking out amazing beers time after time! They are on the forefront of the craft brewing sceen in South Florida.

Their flagship beers. Hopscotch, Pumpkin, and Double Pumpkin (aka Tequestevous) are always in HIGH demand!

They do not serve food themselves as Florida law is rediculous, however they have 2 establishments in the same plaza. Corener Cafe, which will deliver food to wherever you are sitting, and Hog Snappers. Although you have to pick up your order from Hog Snappers, they have some of the best food in town. You can also order delivery or bring food in from wherever your desire.

A must visit if you are in the South Florida area!
