So - here is the run down. They are the largest brewery in Gainesville and have a handful of great, year round beers. While they are located in the back of a fairly remote industrial complex, they have a huge facility and ample parking (day or night. lol). They also make a few one off and seasonal creations. They have... More

While a bit hard to find in the back of an industrial park, Swamp Head is worth a visit if you are in town and have time in the evening. Friendly crowd who knew their beer. Great selection made on-site. Saison was really nice.

The guys at Swamp Head did an amazing job on this place. It is beautiful and it is hard not to want to just hang out and have one more. Not only do they feature their tried and true brews but are constantly cycling new ones into the mix plus others, mostly Florida based, products. Don't forget to bring your... More

This bar offers a wide variety of beer. Prices were reasonable. $6 for a flight, $4 for a pint. Large crowd at 5:00 on a Saturday.

The first think you see as you enter the brewery are two huge conical fermenter out front. Inside the brewery is filled with all different kinds of wood trim. They have a large selection of their beers on tap as well as other guest taps. All the beers I had have been excellent. I recommend if you are in the... More
