  • Great visit to GIB! Great beer and family fun. Loved talking with Mark the owner. Try Tiki Wheat, best beer!  more »
  • This is a great stop if you have a car. My two favorite beers are the Causeway (Kolsch 4.7% abv) and the Mother Fuggles (Smash - 5.4% abv).  more »
  • Nice little brewery experience. Simple place with limited seating inside (it was hopping on a Tuesday afternoon!), but plenty outside, too. And while I didn't fall in love with any of their beers, the...  more »

  • Very cool small brewery in Galveston. It had a nice, smaller area to sit around outside and enjoy the beverages or you could sit inside in the lounge. It got a little crowded in there on Saturday, but we also showed up at the time of the brewery tour. The beer was really good. We even tried the root beer for the non alcoholic choice which was very good.
  • Such a laid back place. Great selection of their beers as well as occasional other nearby craft breweries available. Food, live music, occasionally even food trucks.
  • Better than anticipated. Plenty of taps for a newer brewery (most start with 3-4 offerings). Seating area outside with playground (and stadium seating?) was very nice with plenty of drink holders scattered around. Looks like a great venue for an event. Beer selection was varied and interesting. Plenty of hybrid styles and experimental flavors. Definitely a place to stop at in Galveston.
  • Always enjoy spending a couple of hours or so sitting outside with a beer or two. Indoor area is always too crowded and noisy, but Galveston weather and breeze are always comfortable for sitting outside. Sometimes have live music. I love their darker brews. Nightfall Porter is delicious with a little coffee flavor and no bitterness. Blue Bridge is a bit hoppy. I tried their Kolsch this time and found it to be clean and crisp without any bitter aftertaste.
  • Really cool micro brewery, variety of specialty brews. Awesome gathering place. Oh and Brewery Tours Saturdays at 1pm. Too cool

Where to stay in Galveston

When choosing accommodations in Galveston, remember that the closer you stay to the water, the more you are likely to pay. Top prices usually get you a spacious room packed with modern amenities plus sweeping views of the Gulf of Mexico. You can save a bundle by staying away from the city's popular beachfront. If your home away from home is on wheels, consider one of Galveston's RV parks and resorts.
