Went on a Saturday afternoon during college bowl season so I was only person (other than my brother who was with me). Ordered some food and while a tad pricey it was spot-on. Place has look and feel (and smell) of a dive bar which is fine by me. Beer selection is unique compared to other places in Tampa that I've been to as there are some diamonds in the rough. Definitely worth checking out and go in the day if you want the beer; if you want beer but some ambiance as well the place gets bands at night and looks like they get a cool crowd.

My favorite bar in all of Tampa. It's really kind of by itself and easy to miss if you don't know the area. They always have a great selection of beers on tap and really good food and atmosphere to match. They had a sour beer tap takeover over a year ago when i went and had many different guezes, lambics, and wild ales to try on draft. If you're ever in town give it a visit, worth the out of the way trip!

Can't believe noone has reviewed this place. They keep getting better and better, with food included now. They are the night time place to go to in Seminole Heights especially after the Independent and Southern Brewing close for those who want their special beers to keep flowing. Selection is not like your World of Beers or your Brass tap places either. They keep the taps varied and you never know what they are gonna have which is a blessing every time you go in they will have something you haven't tried. Ok, beer is good. What about the atmosphere? music gets a little louder as the night goes on but thats cool! Depending on what night you go or what event they got going on, it makes it interesting and they sometimes have nights they play whatever vinyl you got. The people who go here are varied and the crowd is welcoming. Pet friendly inside and out. bring your dogs. bathrooms. Super nice, not some bar bathroom thank god! Seating is cush and bar is approachable even when slammed. outside area for smokers and fresh air seekers is comfortable and you can even overlook Nebraska ave. hahaha!

Prices pretty much what you would expect for the beers you are getting. They do their best to serve in the right glassware too. Hey, also if you like Sake, they got it. and wine. They also have bottles. Service. Well, Very good and as the night rolls on I think they do a decent job of keeping the guests served but could be a bit better. I really love this place. Nice and dim and has that nautical feel to it. reflective metal ceiling, clamshell barstools, etc.

Check it out! you may wish you lived closer to it!
