Vibe is cool. Also in south Florida, there is lots of enthusiasm for beer that has emerged in my last few winter visits.
The brewery is at the end of a narrow alley between two warehouse buildings. Not a good location and hurts Vibe.
But Naples Beach has produced and sold beer here for almost three years. So the low rent must have helped them stay afloat when other breweries sank.

Quality is sketchy across the flight of five that I Had (But, it is still a good value at $10.)
My theory on micro-brewers is they need to specialize to raise their quality.
Naples Beach has been in all three traditions. While only having sampled one flight, I found its Belgians to be the most promising relative to its American tradition. I review several of their beers. As with most micros, their beers are distinguished by their freshness. Rarely do I find a beer from a brewery under 5 years old in which Quality precedes freshness.

Service was great. Bartenders were informed. I talked with the owner briefly. They dig what they do.
Selection is broad and flexible. From the two dozen taps, you can select any five you want... which is better than a lot of other places who restrict your choices. They should consider bringing in a world class beer to compare to their best.

Worth one visit. I might visit again... if they were to open another site.

Great brewery!! Nice selection! I do wish they had a cider on tap/bottle for my non-beer drinking friends. They may have had them before, but not when I've been there. (Correct me if I'm wrong plz)

Like how the place is located in an out of the way setting (opposed to sitting across from a CVS or Starbucks), board games, TV's, shuffle board table... I don't think they serve food, but the night I went they had a food truck (the sizzle truck, which was outstanding).

Plenty of seating, which opens up directly to an outdoor area. Everything was nice and clean (including the restrooms). Noise level was perfect. Huge selection of beer (around 20 on tap), especially considering the size of the brewery... The only downside I can even think of, is that on a few occasions it took longer than I would have liked to place an order for my beer/and get said beer; but that might just be because the place was a tad bit busier than usual (or so I was told).

Definitely impressed by the brewery,,,Next time I visit, I'll have to pick up a growler!

Waste of money. My wife and I were in Naples visiting her grandmother and I wanted to stop over to the Brewery Saturday afternoon. When we got there we told the woman we were both here for a tasting and she said it was $20 and you got 9 samples and 1 ticket for a full beer at the end. I though she meant $20 for both of us but it was per person. I have been to 110+ breweries and this by far was the most expensive. Since we were there my wife and I split one tasting. They had a few good beers but the rest were sub par Home Brews. I didn't even want a full beer since I was driving. A brewery should not force you to pay for a full beer and include it in the tasting price. Save your money and gas and bypass this brewery.

We were down in Florida on vacation in March and as usual we look to seek out local microbreweries. For the most part Florida is a micro brew wasteland, but I found this website: http://www.naplesbeachbrewery.com/ and since we were in Naples anyway thought we would check it out. On their website they said they were only open limited hours, but were giving “tours” on Saturday from 3PM to 7PM and basically you pay $15 for a tour and they give you samplers of all 6 of their beers and then you get 2 full beers of your choice, so it sounded promising. We put the address in our GPS and ended up in this kind of desolated industrial park across from the airport. We drive back and forth several times but can’t find any sign of anything resembling a brewery. Finally we find this alley in between two buildings and since it was the only place we had not looked yet decided to drive down it. Sure enough towards the end of this alleyway we see several cars parked and this garage door open with a little sun shade tent in front of it with a sign saying Naples Beach Brewery on it. My wife is going, “Where the fu*k are you taking me too?” as it was definitely tucked back in the corner of nowhere. We park and go in and it is basically a mid-sized garage with a couple of tables, a small office, a bathroom, and some small brewing kettles and a “fermenting room” that was not much bigger than my office here at work. The guy goes, “are you here for the tour?”. We said…..uh yea, I guess. There was nothing really to tour other than this garage, but we gave him our $15 bucks, he gave us a glass and pointed to his partner over by the taps and says he will get us our samples. The place is a two man operation, with one of the guys originally from Michigan. There were maybe a dozen people there at the most, and it turned out to be a cool funky little place. They had 6 beers on tap and gave a generous 5 oz pour of each one (one at a time). They also had a table laid out with pretzels, peanuts and other munchies that you could just fill up a bowl with. When we were on about our 4th sample the two owners stood in the middle of the room to do their “tour” which basically consisted of them standing in the garage and talking about their little operation. After the samples were consumed they gave you 2 20 oz glasses of whatever you wanted, so in the end we got about 70oz of quality beer and some munchies for $15 bucks. I was pretty lit up. I thought their wheat ale was pretty weak , but everything else was good to great with the Pale Ale and Black IPA being excellent. Right now these guys only do small kegs with no bottling or even growlers. They can just sell their little kegs to restaurants and bars at this point, but said they cannot currently keep up with demand. They can’t actually sell beer at their facility, but get around it by giving samples out at their “tours”. I guess everybody has to start somewhere, but this is a great funky little place if you are in the Naples area.

First and foremost, the only reason the review is lower is merely due to the size/capacity. I went for their 1st anniversary party, hence the fact they are still just starting up and don't have a lot of space - yet. I fully expect these guys to grow and have a great tap room in the future.

Small business park location, with predominate white wall. Small retail room with 2 high tops (with stools) and a standing wall bar. Small merch section available as well. Inside the brewery room itself are 3 standing high tops. Handcrafted brewing system (by the brewer himself is clearly the center piece if the brew room. Typically they have 6 different beers on tap, but today they had 10.

Solid beer line up with great representations of styles. The pale is a crowd favorite, but personally the Black IPA and Triple C Stout (Coconut Creme Coffee) were my favorites. I expect some great hoppy beers to come out of NBB in the near future.

Overall, I'm looking forward to coming back and watching them grow. Very solid beers and I anticipate a refinement of the current line up and great new styles to come. Glad to see that Naples finally has a hometown beer I can fully support!
