New place in town. Meh. Expanding too quick and staff didn’t know the difference between Hol Head Red and West Coast IPA. Asked for a CCB snifter and they still brought a pint glass. Lots of TVs. Meh. Decent selection. Cigar City stuff is nice. Better places to go.
These guys have worked the kinks out it seems and get some solid beers. Wootstout bottles last time I went, and always a huge selection of one-off and special release Cigar City stuff. Staff is a bit better, but it does get very crowded at times. Not a lot of room to stand if you don't have a seat. Overall worth going to.

Brass Tap (Gainesville) is one of the better "chain" Craft Beer establishments I've come across. The location (Archer Road) is convenient to shopping, food, etc. They allow and encourage food from nearby establishments and allow delivery.
Beer selection is very good. Lots of bottles to choose from if there isn't anything on Tap that fits your fancy.
Service is very good. There are a couple relatively knowledgable server/bartenders who don't over complicate things. Always very friendly service, and a staff which is more suitable for this type of establishment (see my review of the Gainesville World of Beer).
Atmosphere is laid back most of the time. Like any other bar in a College town on a Friday evening, or Saturday afternoon/evening it can get a bit "bro-ish" but I've never experienced levels of brodom that I would consider offensive. Truthfully, I've always been surprised at the lack of a "crowd" when I've gone.
If you're located on the west-side of campus or in the Archer Road corridor this is your best bet outside of SwampHead's Tap Room which is located just around the corner.
