vibe: 4.5 | quality: 4.5 | service: 5 | selection: 5 | $$
Had two flights totaling 8 5-oz beers here yesterday. Left with a couple growlers.
Tidy space, packed with beer. Friendly, knowledgeable service. Most of my beers were high ABV but the pours were big anyway. Almost too big! Serving temps were perfect.
Nice variety, with a nod to the local brewers and a nice mix of regional and national stuff filling out the lineup. No freshness issues, no off flavors or dirty tap lines. Wish I could have stayed.
The taps are a bit crowded but I didn't mind. A little larger beer board - leaving room for more description of the style (if necessary) - would be great, but having less beer would not be an acceptable compromise! I guess in a perfect world there'd be a cask selection, but you'll likely never run out of gems to drink here. I didn't even have to glance at the impressive amount of bottled beers available.
I'll be back any time I can.

Finally made it to this spot last night. I was very impressed. I had heard a lot, but their selection was incredible. I had: BrewDog Punk, East Coast Dbl IPA, SN Celebration (hadn't seen it yet this year) and Stone Ruination. While I was there a few new kegs got tapped: He'brew Jewbilation 13, DF Olde Skool Barleywine, and Stone Double Bastard. Really stoked about a place that's balsy enough to have this many high ABV gems on a ]t one time. A great American Micro bar! As anywhere in Dunedin, very laid back, attentive friendly service, and a diverse crowd. Def be back soon!

Great little place close to the Pinellas bike trail.
I've come here a couple times when I got sick of exercise and fresh air on the bike. It was slow so he let me bring my small dog inside. the bartenters introduce themselves and try to learn your name.
I wish he would have offered to let me try more beers; I was in the mood for something different but ended up with an old standby, Stone's IPA
he offered me three ciders and a fruit lambic, i guess i look like a nube.
Great atmosphere, friendly nice service.

Yeah, I am giving all exceptional ratings here. What do you expect though? -- I went here after sipping two pints at the Dunedin Brewery, which is a couple of blocks away.
This place is an absolute gem IMHO. Their 40 taps pour a very diverse and excellent selection of beers. I could only spend one hour there during my first visit, but after the first beer (Youngs Double Chocolate), I wanted to sit for six hours. The wife wouldn't let me though :-(
The place consumes a small store front on the outside, but you cannot miss it due to the quaint sign, with table and chairs underneath. It is a galley-shaped space inside, nicely adorned with all things beer. It is not a large area, however the size makes for a wonderful atmosphere. I can only vouch for my one visit (Saturday afternoon), but it only took 5 minutes for my wife & I to get involved in a conversation with other patrons about---BEER.
Another thing I liked, and I never gave this any thought until now, is that the taps are arranged in two tight groups, close together. With the bartender's work space also being tight, you get a real intimate feeling with all those taps being so close. I actually felt like I was at the owner's house with his friends.
As far as the service goes, I caught it when it was top-notch -- the owner was pouring the pints! That's an unfair advantage for this reviewer, but I don't know what else to say. Surely they wouldn't hire any greenhorns to occupy that position, I'm thinking. Price? I cannot honestly say since I didn't really care. If I recall right though, the final bill did not seem unreasonable at all.
For a beer nut within a 100 mile radius (I am 116 miles away), the HOB is worthy of multiple field trips. I will certainly visit there again.
