I found this brewery through Google maps while traveling for work. Google takes you to the loading dock though, so go around the corner. Public parking is across the street.
Excellent place for a lunch bite and a beer.
Don't be fooled by the Randall behind the bar, it's not hooked up... which was sad, since they had a coffee porter that screamed to be infused.
The beer selection was pretty average... mostly ales and sessionables.

So I was in town visiting a friend and this place was a mile away. We fell upon it as a bike race was just finishing up so we didnt stay on the first day and decied to come back another day. But on the day we arrived, it was overrun with sweaty bikers. Real good vibe as they'd just put away a race and lots of good post race vibe there.
WE returned the Monday after the race to a quiet 2 PM lunch. Had a tasting flight and the only disappointment was that some of hte beers on the chalkboard were no longer available. Regardless, got rudimentary chicken fingers for the kids, which were fine. But the french fries were absolutely addictive. I had an order of wings and the wife had a salad with chicken. Good place for lunch and brews and you can walk off the buzz in the cute neighboring town. in a nutshell, the place was a homerun. The nearby pizza place was a S#$thole and the mexican food in town was awful.
Dunedin Brewery rocks.

Closest local brewery to me. great beers. very Communal. All owners & staff are locals. They have great selections of their year round offerings. Consistent. great seasonal offerings as well. The best festivals around. (Oktoberfest,St. Patrick's Day, IPA Fest, Stout Fest). Eclectic atmosphere. Historical building that used to be the old town fire station. Music all the time. great staff. ample seating & parking (finally)

This is a really cool place hidden away in Dunedin, FL. The one drawback I saw here was that the parking lot is tiny. Even in my little Celica I had a hard time squeezing into a spot. Aside from that, the place is small, but feels very open. When you walk in you get to see all the tanks behind the tables and guys working hard trying to get the beer ready for you. The place has great decorations ranging from medals they've won to bottles from other places that I'm guessing have been brought in by patrons. They also have a full menu, though I did not get to eat anything. They have quite a few of their beers on tap for $5 a pint for most of them. Happy hour ranges from 11-7 and consists of a few of their selections for $4. Everyone behind the bar was very friendly and eager to suggest beers to you. They even let me have a free sticker! Ha! Definitely worth a visit and I will be visiting again.

A must stop for beer lover's in FL. Beer selection is excellent, atmosphere is friendly and inviting. A nice sized patio is avaialble. Live music inside most weekends. Wait staff are knowledgable and helpful for newbies. The food is fantastic. I would recommend the fish tacos to my own mother. You won't be disappointed.

I definitely liked this place. It looked a lot smaller from the outside, but inside it was relatively spacious, lots of tables, and a medium-sized bar, with the fermentors in clear sight. Lots of neat decor, vintage breweriana, and a bottle graveyard. Most of the stuff on the walls was a "blast from the past," giving away Dunedin's age, and harkening back to a time when the craft beer scene was still fairly small.
The service was good all around. I'm pretty sure our main server was the owner, a jovial gent, who obviously knew his stuff, and knew his beer. We ordered a few flights, sampling just about every beer on tap, and our other bartender mixed up the glasses fiercely, but we just laughed about it, and eventually figured everything out. I gave them the brilliant suggestion of maybe LABELING the flight paddles, so they could easily coordinate what we the customers write down, and what is presented to us. He seemed to like the idea. lol
Anyway, the selection was quite good, with maybe 15 or so house beers on tap, with a great variety of styles. Most of the beers were solid and well-crafted, if not extremely memorable, though there definitely were at least a couple very good selections. It seems they have just started bottling, or at least had just bottled up a batch of one of their stouts.
Food was simple, but tasty, with a slight leaning towards southern-style / Mexican cuisine. Prices were decent.
Overall a good experience, and a fun place. I'd definitely go back. Be sure to visit 7venth Sun, which is right down the street.

I guess this is Florida's oldest craft brewery. Cool, looking forward to checking it out. It's a very welcoming brew pub. A large garage door is open with fermenters open for all to see. They had some picnic tables set up in that area where people can get some of that nice sun, and open air feel.
Upon entering the brewpub, it looks like the oldest brewery in Florida. It has that well worn look, which is fine with me! They had some interesting stuff going on...they had a beer engine, which is always appreciated, and the bartender gave us samples of the beer on cask and on CO2 pump. Nice touch.
I tried the Imperial Stout and thought it was okay, and we also tried an IPA on tap...both weren't mind bending, but still solid beers.
The atmosphere was lively, and it seems like more of a cool local hang out, than a beer destination. Definitely a nice place to hang out.

I was in town to check out Seventh Sun and we needed food. Dunedin brewery is within walking distance (less than 2 city blocks away.) Our party of 4 arrived around 6:30 pm or so on a Thursday and we sat ourselves at a table built for 6. Looking around, the large fermenters are out in the open. The feel of this place is like a souped-up garage. As we were waiting, a band was setting up to play. While im sure this draws its own set of patrons, im glad we were out of their before they started to play.
The beer menu is split on a chalkboard behind the bar. I am guessing here that what appeared on the left board was their year-round staples and the right board (more ornately and colorfully drawn was probably their seasonals/one-offs.) I opted for their single-hop nelson sauvin ipa and it was fantastic. If we had more time to stay, I would of had a very hard time deciding between another pint of that and trying something else from their list of like a dozen brews.
We ordered some appetizers and plates. Pretzel bites were decent, hummas was pretty good and the cheese curds were tasty. I ordered the house smoked pulled pork sliders. Sliders? No, these were not sliders, these were full-blown portions. I was very hungry and could only finish 2 of my 3. Needless to say, ther portions are quite hearty and very reasonably priced. Others in the group got burgers and wings. The only complaint to be had was that the wings come seasoned but without any sauce.
My overall thoughts are that this place is certainly worth checking out. The food was good, the beer I had was great. As far as service goes, I could see that possibly being a problem. Our waitress seemed stretched thin and looked to be working at every table even though there were others servers walking around.

Beer crawl with Ms. Elvis while following the Phillies. Easy to find off the main drag. Real small place. Parking was tight but we snagged a place around the corner. Total locals vibe. 12 taps more or less. Service was good. Stopping by on a Sunday, the bartenders all seemed to know everyone there. Good sign. We liked the fish tacos and burgers. Beer was solid but not spectacular. Not much beyond the basic styles. I had the nitro ipa and it was a good brew. I dig locals and this was worth a stop.

We accidentally ran into this brewery, the OLDEST Florida brewery, when looking for the NEWEST Florida brewery, 7venth Sun, which just opened last weekend. 7venth sun wasn't open until 5pm so we decided to stop at the Dunedin Brewery for lunch and a beer. We were very happy to visit this brewery.
It's a family owned and run brewery. They don't bottle and sell their beer, so it was a great opportunity to try something we wouldn't be able to find in Massachusetts.
They just tapped this 2010 Local Honey Wheat beer so we decided to try that. It was sweet with a very distinct taste of honey. A great beer for a rainy afternoon in January in Florida.
We tried their jalepenos wisconsin cheese balls with ranch sauce. They were great! Next we made our own quesadilla with blackened mahi mahi and roasted red peppers. It was awesome! We also had their french fries which were freshly cut and nicely browned. The food here was EXCELLENT.
They also have live music at night and they have a NOOK area with special taps and guest taps. At the time, they had stone double arrogant bastard on draft. Last week they had a beer from Montreal's Dieu du Ciel...the "nook" is only open at night and they also auction artist designs, paintings for donations for ALS....what a great cause.
All breweries in Florida support each other and try to keep each brewery unique in their beers and special food items.
We will definitely visit again when we're in the area.
