They only take cash and have an ATM inside. They still make an excellent Pilsner and thankfully it's regularly on their selection. Used to be very hit and miss. They have several other excellent brews on tap and even some from outside micro brewers. I'm also partial to their Riptide Amber and Lighthouse Porter, but that can be filling. They still give a discount on growler refills on Mondays, unless there's an event going on in the park across from them. Then they're just too busy to fill growlers. Excellent outside seating and quite a few seats inside as well. Only one restroom, but always clean when I've used it (be courteous and lift the seat when you use it, unless you're a sitter :-) ). Friendly staff and tours on Saturday's @ around 1530. Cost of the tour is $5, which entitles you to a brew, if your 21. Otherwise you can get $5 credit toward the purchase from their gift selection. I believe their beers are $4.50, tax included, though prices may have changed. Nice place to relax and enjoy a tasty, locally brewed beverage. Their beers can also be found in many of our local restaurants and they've started bottling a few of their more popular brews. And again, CASH ONLY w/an ATM inside. Enjoy, responsibly, I did!

Once a year I visit this craft brewery in the historic district of Pensacola sporting a neighbourhood pub feel about it, but without the food. First the beers - about 20 are listed on a board behind the bar, ranging from around 4 per cent alcohol to nearly 10 per cent. Good variety of lagers, ales, stouts and porters. For $4.50 you get a regular glass in a pleasant room with several tables attended by a helpful friendly bartender. Outside were lots of tables and with some in a garden setting. A casual community association prevailed among the clientele, many of whom dropped by while walking their dogs. Terrific ambience, lovely historic setting, casual neighbourly feeling amid the happy throng, plus the comforting dogs all equal a terrific place. Oh, my fave...the whiskey porter, with perhaps a touch of bourbon in it.

Great place to get some good, locally brewed beer and relax after work. Their beer selection is really good, everyone should find something they like.

We stopped here for a beverage after visiting Gulf Islands National Seashore. I surprised at the number of brews available, 20 on tap! They had a nice selection of various types of brews and the bartender was quite friendly. Nice outdoor seating area and quaint indoor seating (bar and tables) available. Bring your four legged friend if you plan on sitting outside. We enjoyed some of their lighter beers but it's worth trying a few! Cash or check only.

This location has a wide selection of craft beer choices. One of the best I've experienced. Selections include IPA, pilsner, ales, etc. they offer some inside seating and covered outdoor seating. The prices are reasonable. There are a few wine choices for non beer drinkers. It is located in the historic district of Pensacola.
