Came on a busy day and the bartender was still so patient and took her time with each and every customer. Felt like a regular right off the bat! Fantastic brews and can't complain about the crowlers!

Cycle Brewing is pretty much a staple in the Downtown Saint Petersburg Area. Nestled in a humble little section of Central, Cycle has always enjoyed a moderately sized but extremely loyal following. Cycle was one of the first real brew pubs, you see, at least those native to this area. Their offerings are always well made and served in the proper glassware at the proper temperature. Occasionally, the staff can be somewhat lackadaisical in their approach. However, that more or less embodies the mannerism of the area. They are in no rush and, if you're here with them, you shouldn't be either.

Through no fault of their own, the area has become less of the artistic venue it once was and more so commercial. Thus, due mostly in part to gentrification, the surroundings have lost some of their former luster. Regardless, this modification has taken absolutely no toll on the product, just the vibe. If you're ever in the area, and want a great stout, walk up to the bar and say those magic four words.. "Cream and Sugar, please!"

We were there early on a Sunday afternoon, not too crowded at all. We sat at the bar and they had a great selection of BA beers and bottles to go. A group of 4 of us each had 2 and I took a bottle to go. Steve, the bartender was cool, no issues with service. We'll be back again.

Went on a not-so-busy early Saturday afternoon and the place was only at mid-capacity. Enjoyed sitting at the back bar, although there was a somewhat musty smell for some reason. Didn't wait long at all for drinks and the bartenders were nice, but couldn't shake the feeling that they would rather talk to their buddies than us. Oh well. Beer selection was good, although pretty much the choices were IPAs and sweet stouts. I like both so no issues for me.

Well regarded place in old St Pete. Everything I read said that I needed to visit. Open air vibe, kind of bike vibr, many sweet beers, had one but not memorable. I guess sweet beers aren't my thing. Good service. Good place to watch people walk by

Snobbish feel overall, the server was stand-offish, and we felt we were intruding on her domain. We had a few 4 oz pours and decided we had to have their Cream And Sugar Hazelnut, so we bought two crowlers and hit the road.

Vibe: I visited this place around 12:30 pm on a Sunday afternoon, just after it opened. It wasn't overly crowded and there were a few people sitting on picnic tables out on the sidewalk. There were lots of areas to sit inside among a couple of high top tables in the front, some small tables in alcoves along the wall running down the length of the building, and lots of seats at the bar.

Quality: Beers were served at the proper temperature using a variety of glassware (snifters and pint glasses).

Service: It wasn't very crowded when I was there, so there was never a wait to get beers at the bar.

Selection: A total of 14 different beers were available during my visit, all of which were available as either half or full pours. Nearly all of the beers were also available as crowlers to go.
