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.

I was not disappointed with the beer that I had there. They had quite a selection of beer styles, including one of favorites that you don't see... More

If you like strong beer this is the place to go. No food serve by them, but most of the time they have food trucks.

Living in the Gainesville area there are several different options for things to do that don't involve going out without a crazy crowd when the students are in town. The location and rustic furnishing of the SHB make it great place to go hang out with friends after work for a beer or two. On different days there are food... More

We love Swamp Head Brewery! They have so many different beers on tap that sometimes it can be hard to make a decision. The atmosphere is very relaxed yet authentic to Gainesville.
