  • Neat new location to try locally brewed beers. They have staples and a rotating tasted like PB&J in a glass, so good. Be aware they have strange business hours. 
  • I can get a few of Swamp Head Beers where I live and all of them have been excellent. I just had to stop by for a visit when I was in Gainesville. I was not disappointed with the beer that I had there...  read more »
  • If you like strong beer this is the place to go. No food serve by them, but most of the time they have food trucks. 
  • Not only is the beer amazing, the atmosphere is top notch as well. We are frequent visitors and love being able to bring our furry, four-legged friends (crucial) and our own food/snacks. The games provided by the brewery foster community and promote a down-to-earth environment.
  • The beer here is great. They have several small batch brews, have guest taps and will let you sample beers before committing. They have recently moved and remodeled and the building is gorgeo, however it is not as large as is ideal for the crowds that usually gather here on Friday nights, so it is typically very crowded. Occasionally they have a guest tap cider but usually not and they don't have any other alcohol here so of you don't like beer you are out of luck. They do not, however mind if you bring your own wine and will even give you a glass and lend you a corkscrew.
  • Wonderful located brewery. It is in an industrial area but you would never know it once you are there. A lot of indoor and outdoor seating. Great decor and a great selection of beers. Tried their stout and it was right on point with the best oatmeal stouts I have had. Pet friendly. An overall great time.
  • What a disappointment..... I had tried their "Big Nose IPA" at Tibble's Brews, so I went to the brewery (early January 2016) with a growler expecting the best. They didn't have any Big Nose on tap, but had what they called a "West Coast IPA". I got a sample. It didn't look right--too light for an IPA, and I said so. Then I tasted it. It was definitely NOT a "West Coast IPA" vis-a-vis Green Flash, or anything else I have ever tasted--and I have tried them all. It tasted like a lager--light, and sweet ( I hate sweet beer). Seems like they forgot how to brew an IPA. Needless to say, I never went back
  • Big fan of their operation, all their brews really bring out the flavors. Brewery tours, small outdoor seating and a few bar games are fun. The tap room is the best spot.
