The Halpatter Brewing Company is firing on all cylinders! First and foremost, the venue is incredible. It's a historical building that was once a Department of Transportation office building. The building has been updated to masculine chic. The beertender Holly, a part owner, was very friendly, knowledgeable, personable. I was interested in the gose beers as that seemed to be their specialty. I was able to sample all of them and ended up with mango and then later the watermelon. Both were amazing! My husband had both IPA's and said they were great. The food was fantastic as well. We had the smoked fish dip, a side of the mac & cheese and the pretiola board. All were delicious!! My children enjoyed the house made orange and cream sodas. Two thumbs up for having great drink options for kids! We have visited countless breweries all throughout the nation and this one has quickly risen to one of our very favorites! We'll definitely be back!

Somehow people got together and built a fantastic brewery in Lake City Florida of all places. Great beer selection that includes Halpatter favorites and an ever changing selection of new brews. Live music and other activities mean there is always something going on. However, there is always a quiet place to gather and chat with friends. You should not go to Lake City without stopping in!

Stopped in while traveling through the area. Based on their website, I didn’t expect them to have good. But they do have a small menu of items. I chose the original smash burger and French fries….either I was really hungry OR these were maybe the best fries I’ve had in my life…so good!! They are natural cut, skin on and have some sort of seasoning…I dunno, but I could have eaten my body weight in them! The burger was perfect also - flavorful and juicy.. it was just a regular bun, but they toasted it which was a nice touch. They have a really cold outdoor space which was perfect this early evening. For a Saturday evening, they were surprisingly dead.

The beer was solid…I especially liked the hefe - it paired really well with the warm evening and the burger/fries. Their cream ale has apparently won numerous awards…it was okay…I‘ve had better. The Mexican lager was solid. I also tried the hazy IPA (even though I generally don’t like IPAs)…it was decent (if you like IPAs you’ll likely like this very much).

Their outdoor space has bags, a couple of fire pits (for those cool Florida evenings??), a small performance space and a deck overlooking it all. I would definitely come back!

Parked nearby to attend the festival. Asked a passerby if we were headed in the right direction. The answer made us laugh. The couple said “doesn’t matter where you are going because you are close to Halpatters and you have to stop in. “They went on to tell us how much we would enjoy it. And they were absolutely right. After perusing the menu we decided we’d rather have a charcuterie board than fair food. Everything on the board was fantastic. It went really great with my hard cider and my husband’s brew. We ended up going back that night after dinner as well. There was a live band, the brews were awesome and the atmosphere was just fun and friendly. I wish we could duplicate Halpatters where I live. We would probably visit it every weekend.

About 15 steps to go up to get in, it was an old municipal building. Lots of rooms and alcoves that have been untouched which keeps this place unique. Good beer, too bad they were out of there cream ale the day I went. Free parking next door in municipal lot.

What a great place to have an evening! Great brewery beers including a mild pilsner and great blueberry seltzer but its how you drink them is whats unique. A beautiful historic building with things to do everywhere. A ping pong room, foosball room, board games, sitting areas, outside dog and people area. This is how breweries should be. Make sure you stop coming through just off i75 a couple miles!

We ate lunch for the second time at Marion Street Bistro ( highly recommend) and were walking around the historic district. We found the Halpatter Brewing Company behind the bistro and stopped in. We entered the front entrance after climbing the long flight of stairs. There’s a bar on that level with all their brews listed on a large board behind the bar. We explored the building first and found a small room down the hall from the bar which had a large ping-pong table for customer’s use. We went downstairs to the ground level and found the second bar. That room had two large garage doors which were open to an outside seating area. The outside area had plenty of chairs and three fire pits. There were two “corn-hole” boards set up for play and trash-talking. The server at the bar was very helpful and gave me a small wooden box which would hold four small glasses so I could sample whatever brews I wanted. I only had to find the ones I was interested in and write the number of the brew on the box with a piece of chalk she gave me. I tried one hard cider and three stouts. All were excellent, I look forward to returning again and bringing my dogs cause it’s a dog friendly place. There was a large family with children there playing “uno” so it’s family friendly, too.

Food pretty good and really cool site. Friendly. Beers ok, not spectacular. No masks, anywhere, even from the waitstaff and bartenders. Go after Covid.

We were camping @ Live Oak & I was looking for a local brew pub. There was nothing in the immediate Live Oak area, but I did find this one in Lake City, which is maybe a 20-25 mile drive, made easy with the I-10. Halpatter is off the main rd. & found easily with GPS. We walked up stairs to the main entrance, but there is also a downstairs entrance. We took our spots @ the bar & immediately greeted by Casey. He answered all our questions about the beer & the history of the building. We started with a sampler of 3 stouts & porters & 1 IPA @ $2 per glass (4 oz./each). They are nicely numbered on a chalkboard carrier, matching their listings on the board. Casey recommended a Peanut Butter Stout (Smooth Operator), which was wonderful! Hubby likes the IPA's & enjoyed the Hammerknocker, which is very hoppy. We ended up enjoying a glass or 2, of each & filling our 2 growlers with each. We had outside growlers, which they accept. They also sell their own growlers. We ordered off a small selection of food menu, the brisket sandwich with kettle chips. The sandwich was very tasty & filling & went nicely with our brews. We also had small samples (on-the-house) of other brews on-tap, but very happy with our original choices. They have a large selections of ciders & non-alcoholic sodas. Prices for our 4 samplers, 3 beers, 2 dinners, 2 32oz. growler fills = $65 + tax + tip
I would like to give our server Casey a big shout-out for making our evening memorable & to Lindsay, for jumping in when needed! We will definitely be back on our next trip!

Full disclosure - I love this place. It's suitable for families and has a great trivia night. They also have great food prepared on site but is also located close to a couple of restaurants. They have great food truck business also. More importantly, though, they have great beer and are always looking to improve on their product. This is a must stop!
