Nice place. Too bad the beer stinks. All the beers have a berry watery body and slightly off flavors, as if the brewer had s permanent head cold or is missing some taste buds. Try Big Storm Brewing in Clearwater instead.

Vibe: I visited this place around 3 pm on a Saturday afternoon and it was quite busy. The inside room was very crowded with just about all of the tables and seats at the bar filled up and the outside portion in the shade was also very busy. It looked like it was a popular hangout spot in the neighborhood.

Quality: Beers were served in tall cylindrical glasses at the proper temperature.

Service: The thing that I really liked about this place was that they had a dedicated area at the bar where you could walk up and order drinks (without having to reach over people that were sitting there). There were two bartenders dedicated to this area and another bartender covering the rest of the bar. As such, service was both efficient and quick.

Selection: During the time of my visit, I counted a total of 15 beers from the brewery available on-tap. All were available in multiple sizes (e.g., 16 oz./pitcher/growler, 4 oz./16 oz./pitcher).

Cool spot in a cool neighborhood, in a great part of Florida. Great weather to boot on the day we visited...Larger and open feeling room, large windows and very pleasant out door space...they make very tasty ales, NEIPAs available to go in tall cans. Great place to visit and enjoy if you are visiting...I'm sure I'd spend too much time here if I was a local..well worth a visit.

Fantastic space - huge outdoor garden, large bar area, farm table seating. Rustic/modern vibe. Service is quick (if not always particularly friendly). Live music, art shows, food trucks.

Pretty nice location, not quite on the main road, but just a short walk to the next street beside it, giving a bit of a buffer from the traffic. This is a hip, open air spot with a long bar, a nice outdoor seating area and some pour your own water. The bar has a great view of the production area thanks to massive windows behind it, and they have quite a sizeable taplist.

When we were there, taps were limited because Foeder for Thought was about to take over, but what was on draft was of a good quality, and they had just released a new collaboration bottle with Jester King, which was absolutely stunning. Their beer cred is massive, because they brought the fireworks with their event later that evening.

Visited on Saturday August 20th around 5:30 PM. It was Tampa Rays game at 7:30 PM so there were a lot of pre game fans making their way through before the game. Nice place; was a old service garage before so they utilized the bay door design well. I can see the place being completely open during the winter months. The selection was quite enormous. There were at least 18 drafts of their stuff and then a few guest spots of local root beer, etc. The brewery tour was excellent and they gave out 3 free samples during the 45-minute tour/discussion. It sounds like they are in the middle of planned expansion, so I will be curious how the place stacks up after some changes.

I thought the service was good. They had four bartenders on staff to handle the volume. Each was able to give recommendations and allow for samples of their specialties. They offered growlers (32 oz and 64 oz), bottles, and cans to take off premise. There are plenty of restaurants in the area to have food while you drink.

They had almost 20 beers on tap and offered flight paddles of 4. Nice digital draft list on 2 huge tvs. Available bottles and cans to go. No food, but I believe you can bring anything in. The whole tap room is very well done, but the outdoor area is very nice. Plenty of tables, fenced in area for kids to run around, giant jenga and corn hole boards, and they have movies on certain nights.

Great space in downtown St. Petersberg! Went this evening with my wife and mother-in-law. The space is very RH like on the inside for decor, I liked it. Outside the patio was a good space for some games and drinking. They had about 16 beers on tap and some ciders and mead. The bartender was very friendly and knowledgeable. I also like the cans, bottles, and growlers to go when done drinking at the tap room. Overall, I had a great time trying their different beers, even my mother-in-law enjoyed some of the sours they had on tap.

This is stop #8 of 14 brewpubs for my wife and I on this one week vacation and pub crawl. This was the wrong place to hit on a late Friday afternoon. Jammed they were! Since we were already here we decided to forgo our usual sampler flight because the bartenders were so busy, so we each chose a pint to try. So our evaluation of the beers here are based on two of them.

We chose a pale ale and an IPA, and felt that they were brewed in excess of style, although we didn't feel that either was notable. The beer menu so so varied in the style selections that we wished that we could have tried others, but noisy crowds take away from our ability to relax and enjoy our beers. We liked the style/vibe of the place so we'll come back here again when we can predict a more quiet visit.
