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.

So, the day before I tried this place, I had gone to Cigar City Brewing. They brew some fantastic beer, but the ambiance in their tasting room left a little to be desired. Dunedin was the other way around. The brewpub had a really laid-back, cozy vibe (despite the somewhat disinterested bartender). However, their beer was a little pricier and not as tasty as Cigar City. I didn't try the food but it looked and smelled great. Definitely worth a trip out to Dunedin if you're in the Tampa Bay area. Cute little town and Dunedin Brewery is as good a place as any to wet your whistle and chow down on some pub grub.

The Dunedin brewery is one of my favorite spots in the Clearwater/Dunedin area. I've been there many times and what stands out the most in my opinion is the atmosphere. The place is usually pretty busy at night and they have concerts from local bands that help up light the place. The setup is typical of a brewpub with high table and chairs throughout the place. They also have an outside deck if you prefer the outdoors. The people that attend this place range from all ages and are usually the artsy type.
I only ate there twice, both times I had burgers and they were pretty good. The brew selection is pretty good and offers good variety to keep you entertained and tasting different styles.
Overall, I highly recommend this place to all the beer lovers out there; the atmosphere is great and you can't beat enjoying a variety of beers brewed right there along with live music!

I went to the Dunedin Brewery with my three friends and when we first got there we did not know really what to expect. When we walked through the front door the place is covered in stickers. Not just beer stickers but local bands and stuff like that. Even the bathroom is covered with different stickers, totally loved it.
Each of us got a different style of beer and we shared so we could get a little taste of each style. Since its summer we tried mostly wheat beers from what I remember.
I had a good time just wish we could of taken a little tour even though you can see all the vats behind everyone but oh well still had a good time and looking forward to going back whenever I am in the area.

We ended up visiting Dunedin on the first Sunday of the month, and that means it's SPCA Dog Wash/Adoption day at Dunedin. There was an outside vendor with 4 taps of the brewery's offerings for those there with their dogs. On normal days, dogs are allowed out in the beer garden. If you are able to go in, you have access to the full tap list. However, of note, the brewery does not offer sampler paddles of their beers on the "Dog Days", since everything is served in plastic cups. They also do a limited menu on the "Dog Days", but the menu seemed fine to us...we had sliders and they were tasty. The bartender was not the most social or forthcoming individual, but between the dog event and their just having an IPA festival the night before, I would give him the benefit of the doubt...he was likely a little worn out. They have a good selection of styles, and some of the beers are truly tasty! The location is a little bit out of the way from Tampa, but worth the trip. Quaint little area, and great overall vibe. Ther prices were extremely reasonable. We would definitely go back again!
