A nice stop while in Ybor City. The beers here are average to very good with a few stand out examples (the Wit and Hefe-Weizen are very good). The service was just OK, as the bartender gave me a hard time for wanting my 12 beer selections in the sampler 4 at a time (I always prefer this so they don't go flat and I can comment on their head retention, etc). The food was very good. I shared a Calzone and Bangers-n-mash with some friends. The atmosphere is slightly rustic and food time was average. Be warned, the parking police in Ybor City are Nazi's.

Right outside of my office. A good place to stop off at and enjoy a beer while either watching the trolley or the people outside. Great service; great food. Wicked delicious beer cheese dip. Good selection and variety of beers to choose from.

Nice brewpub with good variety of beer on tap. A few to go cans in the cooler. Get the Reef Donkey if you like hops.
Cheers

Service was really good in this place, lots of locals hanging out. Quality is pretty good, nothing really stood out to me on the beer menu. Had a great IPA and that was about it! (Reef Donkey)

This place is the perfect brew pub. They have ok food, but the beer selection is great. They brew their own beer on site. They have everything ranging from IPA to dark stouts.

Go here about once a week. Staff is always very nice and most of the time attentive. Food selection is good with specials happening most days of the week. Gets busy on the weekend but has plenty of outdoor seating/outdoor bar also. If had one complaint it would be the lack of guest taps, there are a few both nothing special. This is only off putting because its really a resturant with a brewery inside it (unlike their new location), so it makes you want a little more variety of beer when you come here often. This though is a great place to have a good beer with great people and is a huge hit with out of town friends.
