We visited the new location for their grand opening and were pleasantly reminded what a wonderful Florida gem we have. Their beers are diverse in that they like to try new things but also their staple beers are always on point. The staff are friendly and I've always spotted the owner & brewers wandering around each time I've stopped in.... More

If you want good craft beer this is the place to stop! I like IPAs, ambers and stouts/porters. It was a great find and they will fill other peoples growlers!

Nice size bar with some good beers. They also have a food truck chilling outside with some good BBQ. Good staff, good people, good spot!

Brewery is not the easiest to find since it is located in an industrial park. Once you get there you see the garage doors opened and the brewery on display. Sit and enjoy a glass of a good variety of beers brewed on the premises. Recommended!

Stopped by the tasting room for my first visit, they are open 4-9 Monday - Friday and 1-9 on Saturday. I wasn't inside for more than 10 seconds and the friendly staff had acknowledged my presence and was eager to help me pick out my first beer. No attitudes here, the staff obviously loves what they do and made the... More

Great local beer. Inherently Floridian. The staff is great, super knowledgable and love what they do. Stop in on a Tuesday for an ephemeral release... One off pilot beers that are super small batches and fabulous when you catch them.

Swamp Head is a great place to try some very good beers. It is hidden behind the Target Store on Archer Road and right near I-75. Very intimate location- a small tap room bar and additional seating in the warehouse/brewery which is opened to the outside with big overhead doors. Yes, the single toilet is an issue, but I still...

This is a very small but quite worthwhile brewery. The employees were very friendly and generally more than happy to go out of their way to chat, help you or provide any information you might need. The beers are quite good. After trying all of them, I took a couple of "growlers" home as well as some special edition stuff... More

You will have to go to Tampa or beyond to find another brewery of this caliber! Traveling through Gainesville this gem far exceeded my expectations. Atmosphere is a warehouse brewery, but the Cottonmouth IPA is 1st class! Would have given it 5-stars except for they have 1-toilet to be shared among a very large crowd. We where there Thanksgiving week... More
