Cool vibe in a warehouse type setting. Big selecting n of beers but not really beer drinker beers. Lots of fruity and light beers. Their RIS tasted like soy sauce and the double barrel aged beer was only good, nothing special. Food takes forever and not much selection. Worth the journey but not a constant stream as it is so out of the way.

This is part of Schnebly's Winery in Homestead, just outside the Everglades. We came in on a weekday afternoon. At the time, we were the only people there and they seemed almost inconvenienced by the fact that they came in.

The girl who ended up waiting on us was nice, but she was the only person working 2 separate bars (wine tasting bar and beer tasting bar) and she kept having to go back and forth between the 2 (a few more groups of people showed up shortly after we came in). She is the only reason the service even gets a 2.

There were several other employees there that seemed to just be kind of milling around, while this poor girl was doing all the work. Maybe they were getting the place ready for an event later that evening, I'm not sure, but no one really seemed too concerned about the customers in the place at the time.

The milk stout and the wheat ale were actually not bad, but the IPA was one of the worst I have had. The 2 other beers available (a brown ale and a coconut ale) were not noteworthy.

The facility in general is very nice, with a beautiful outside area where I believe they may host weddings and banquets.

Long story short, if you are looking for a place with a nice vibe to sample some good local brews, I would pass on this one.

I did not have any food so I cannot give that a review.

This place is attached to a winery. Their selection consists of their four flagships and three seasonals. They only offer flights of their flagships. It felt more like a kiosk in a mall than an independent brewery.

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.
