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

great location (although they could use better directions from the main road (sw 34th), the beer is great, the waitress (cute and) very well informed, great recommendations and "tastings", fun fun atmosphere, including the occasional alligators sunning by the pond! a must visit in Gainesville!

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

Really nice new brewery in an office park near the big post office on Archer. A bit hidden and out of the way, which could be viewed as a positive. Swamphead has made great strides in Gainesville over the past 5 or 6 years. Very good beer choices.

I went for the brewery tour and tacos which was very informative. For 5 dollars you got a complementary pint glass filled with one of their original beers and a tour. Our guide was very bubbly and knowledgeable. It was good to learn that just about all of the ingredients and then the bi-products come from and go to local... More

Very good beer on tap here. They always have a seasonal beer either on tap or bottled. If you like beer, you have to try this place out.
