The brewery has a pond and the tasting room faces the west, so right before sundown is a good time to visit. You can also sit outside near the pond. Craft-brewed pints are basically $5 and the staff is friendly. Cypress seems to be the theme, from the unusual tables to the outside door handles. Many nights they invite a... More

This is a beer brewery that is also kid friendly. You have a tasting day and the various beers are real good. In their parking lot their is a family that has a stone baked pizza cart that the ingredients are all natural. Yummy.

Went with friends for an afternoon of beer. The tour was only $5 and we got to drink a beer from their staple collection while learning about their brewing process. They have a good sized production operation for canning and kegging. I love that they experiment so much and offer unique brews. After the tour there are games like giant... More

Great place to grab a beer. They typically have food trucks in the evenings. I think you can check their website for which truck is going which night. You used to be able to order food and have it delivered there as well but I'm not sure if that is the case at their newer site. Great place to meet... More

They have Taco Tuesday's via food truck. They do not have a kitchen. Dec. 10 is burger night. Closed on Mondays. Our bartender was Shani,very friendly & always... More

We lucky enough to stop in on "rick or treat night" Bartenders and customers in costumes. Great craft beer. Nice outdoors setting. Mexican food truck visits once a week. Excellent food!

My husband and I have been return customers/ fans for over 5 years. Swamp Head Brewery: Great smiling service, tasty beer (both standard stock and seasonal offerings), and their environmental conscious sustainability business practice only adds to their excellent-ness as a positive influence within the Gainesville community. Big Nose – Husband’s favorite, he likes hoppy-ness. Cotton Mouth – For Belgian... More

Great atmosphere to drink craft beer. They have a pond next to the brewery which is nice to watch the sun set over. Pretty large (20-30ish) selection of craft beer

gorgeous upscale tap room and great beers! What more could you want? I took an out of town friend from Ca who proclaimed it the nicest brewery he's seen.

Neat new location to try locally brewed beers. They have staples and a rotating selection...one tasted like PB&J in a glass, so good. Be aware they have strange business hours.
