Can't beat a $5 burger at lunch! Good beer list; loved the Cobra lite and the honeymeade ale. Delicious burger in a fun atmosphere. Friendly service.

We come her every few weeks. Ordered a pizza to take home after enjoying a few IPAS, only to discover our veggie pizza was uncooked inside. The crust was perfect, the veggies looked wonderful. But once this happens you can't rebake it. $16 down the Dr.

Only had their brews on our last visit. Good! More bar - restaurant than brewery in the modern world. Have had the bean soup and burgers on prior visits - both good.

The service was good. A few mix ups with timing and food but they fixed it the best they could. The burger was delicious once they were able to get the bacon crispy like we wanted. Spinach and artichoke dip was good but scolding hot. We loved looking at the old trading cards on the table.

Stopped in for a visit, was the local Green Bay Packer, not any more. The Packer room is not longer Green and Gold.. Changes were nice, more seating area and large menu.

Four of us had lunch here. We all opted for the $5 burger (served between 11am-3 pm, M-F). What a steal! The burgers were juicy and delicious, cooked exactly as we each requested. And as one friend noted, the burger to bun ratio was perfect (not too much bun). We got a side of fries for the table. Fries were... More

We just stopped to have a beer and it was terrific. Bartender was extremely friendly. Food looked and smelled wonderful. We will be sure to stop during dinner time next trip.

We tried the local Sarasota gold and a Sequoia Amber Lager. The pub was lined with ceramic mugs in and out of brew tanks. It gave the room character and the locals seem to love the place.

Great weekday lunch. Half pound burger for $5. Great service, friendly staff and a few beers brewed on site to select from. It's a bar pub like place with a few tables. Located in a strip mall with limited angle parking. Definitely worth stopping.

Stopped by to try the on-site brewed craft beer, but stayed for the $5 half-pound burger lunch special. Tried the Sarasota IPA, Sequoia Amber Lager, and the Midnight Pass Porter. All were excellent. Melissa was our friendly and helpful server. She clearly enjoys her job. Since 1989; first microbrewery in the Sarasota area. Definitely worth a try.
