Great place that is literally in the heart of their processing and packaging warehouse. There are 8 brews and you get a 4 oz taste of any of them for a dollar and all of them were delicious. Great stop at an establishment that serves...More

This is a small, humble and funky little brewery with superb beers and friendly hosts who appreciate everyone who stops by and tastes. They do a flight of 8 or 10 beers, at least one of which is bound to be a favorite. Don't miss...More

The staff serving the samples were very friendly and knowledgeable about them. We sampled 7 or 8 beers for $6.50 each. The samples were enough to give a good tasteing of each. If we had more time on the island, we would have purchases the...More

This brewery is a little hard to find but definitely worth it. They are only open in the afternoon and close at 5:00. The flight of all the beers is $5.00 I think--not expensive or you can sample individual brews for $1.00 each. Each pour...More

We found this little brewery online before a business trip and because we like our beer, decided we couldn’t pass it up. It’s off the beaten path, and contrary to what we were told, it’s way more than a mile from Banyan Drive. Needless to...More

We wanted to try local microbrews and were delighted to find the tasting room open and serving. There was a sign posted that read "No Bathrooms", but we thought that it meant no bathrooms available for the public. After consuming our beverages we asked to...More

As of August beer samples are no longer free but the fee is reasonable. While the business appears to be growler fill and keg sale focused I was glad to add this visit during my recent cruise ship stop.

Free beer tasting, friendly folks. Small tasting room and neat and quality products at reasonable prices for sale too. Not pretentious. Small parking lot and great prices. Buy a growler, 50% off your first fill up. Great tip from a local who was inside tasting...More
