Real beer

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.

The location and rustic furnishing of the SHB make it great place to go hang out with friends after work for a beer or two. On different days there are food... More

It is the heat of summer and my wife and I wanted to take a good friend someplace cool and fun. Swamp Head Brewery fit the bill to a T. As soon as you walk up you know this is a special place with a beautiful carving of a cypress tree on the front door. You walk into a cool... More

We did the tour and got the tshirt literally. Great staff and lovely new grounds. Not a big craft beer buff but this tour was worth it.

I love going to different breweries so my boyfriend and I decided to stop at Swamp Head when we went to Gainesville. We paid $5 for the brewery tour and got a glass and a pint of beer. The tour itself was very science based which was different than other tours I went on but kinda went over my head.... More

I've been going to Swamp Head for a few years now and the new brewery location is fantastic. The drive up has a grand effect with the two large yellow silos. For peak events parking is a pain but on normal days it's easy. Inside is clean with a fair amount of tables including a very nice outdoor area. Their... More
