This is a big place with indoor and outdoor seating. Cool tables made of wood stumps and slabs. Busy place with adults and kids, dogs, food trucks and it's overlooking the swamp! Good beers with a large variety to choose from. Well worth a visit and return trips!

Great afternoon sipping a variety of excellent, locally crafted beers, along with an informative tour of the pristine facility. It was a spur of the moment get-away and well worth the trip.

There is lots of beer for those who enjoy the brew. Place is clean and has reasonably good service. There is no food inside. Food truck outside. There is plenty of outdoor seating and in good weather that is very nice. Beer is a little pricey. No happy hour specials.

We have been frequenting Swamphead since its inception but somehow never did the brewery tour until today. Totally worth the wait and worth every dime of ts ridiculously low $5 charge. We have now added a brew tour to our list of "things to do with out-of-townees". Incredibly knowledgeable staff, fascinating beer trivia, cool take away class--great way to spend... More

They have a good selection of beers for everyone. It's dog friendly. There are fun games to play with others like connect "4", corn hole etc, what more do you need?

Really enjoyable place to spend the afternoon and learn about beer. We love their Swamp Head 10-10-10- Imperial Indian IPA. Plan to go back for a brewery tour.

I was in Ocala one afternoon sampling beer at Infinate Ale when I met two guys from Gainesville. I was NOT impressed by the beer there and asked the opinions of the gentlemen that I had struck up a conversation with. Their reply was that I needed to take a trip up to Gainesville and check out Swamp Head. I'm... More

We visited Swamp Head Brewery late in the evening and it was difficult to find. Garmin and our GPS told us we were within .2 miles of the brewery but we just couldn't find it. A passer by gave us exact directions and there we were. It is tucked in behind a road that ends and then picks up after... More
