First off, the price... well when you are the only craft beer restaurant/store in the area, you can charge what you want. I don't fault him for that considering most of the college crowd he gets are not going to order bombers of beer or pay the cost for an Orval anyway. His small but impressive craft beer selection was worth it after drinking Bud Light all week at the beach.
Had a Cigar City Scotch ale and a Chateau Rogue black lager. Also bought a Cigar City scotch ale and Guava Grove to take home. He has a packaging license and can sell you bottles to take home.
Thursdays are buy one/get one free bombers.
Service was great as the guy likes to talk about beer. His recommendations were solid, though not always taken by the college kids looking for a cheap night.
All around a great bar and the only one with this type of selection in St. Augustine.
Some bottles I saw in the fridge : Bière De L'Amitié, Weyerbacher Imperial Pumpkin, Terrapin Boom Shakalager

We stumbled upon this place while walking through the outdoor mall yesterday. It's down a hallway filled with little shops. It's a small place, with only 5 handles but they did have a fairly large bottle section that you can browse just to the right of the bar. They had a acouple Cigar City offering, but only in bottles and were out of all St. Somewere beers. I ordered A pint of Stone Sublimely Self Righteous, my wife orderd a Tangerine from Lost Coast, and my parents each ordered a Loin Stout. And a kids milk for my son. Total came to $34. Bar tender was helpful and friendly. She seemed pretty knowledgable about the beers I asked about. We only spent 30 minutes here before wandering through the rest of St. Augustine.
This is not a bad place, and we would have stayed longer to have a few other beers but were pressed for time and had kids with us. I'll come back next time I'm in town.

A nice place to sit down and try a new beer here and there. Coolers on the wall stocked with a hundred beers or so and six on tap. The place is set inside the George Street Mall setting and tough to find unless you like to wander as I do. Craft beers are what this little bar is all about and they do have knowledge about what they serve. I ended having a Nostradamus Belgian Brown Ale based upon the bartenders recommendation. Nice beer to start with!
My girlfriend and I were taking some and wandering St. Aug's when we got hungry and found this place. She got a chicken sandwich and I got the Reuben. Nothing really stood out for us besides the beer. The food was average and the server/bartender was very slow in taking care of us. We didn't mind because we were not rushing around.
Our overall impression of the place left a lot to be desired. We aren't regulars and don't get out to St. Aug's all that often, but if it weren't for the beer selection I don't think we'd head back anytime soon.

tucked away in a mall like setting. hard to find. small sign. inside it was a little bright and we were suprised the kitchen was closed at 8pm on a sat night. lots of cool beer tins and signs. decorated nice. kinda of a total euro feel decorations. German, Belgium, England etc...
There was actually a waitress/bartender that knew what they were talking about. Se has had many of the beer there. Probably about 100 bottles and I think 6 on tap. No crap on tap and a good represtation of craft beers. a little more imports than needed but a good mix. We had one beer there and left. probably more of a snack bar type place to grab someting and go. The atomosphere was not there for a let sat. night.

I stopped by this place the last time I was down in Florida visiting some family.
It's a small space with a small bar and some tables and coolers on one wall.
It wasn't very crowded and I had a seat at the counter with my mom. The server was slow and it took her a long time to come take our order even though we were the only people sitting there.
I had a grilled chicken sandwich that was on par with something you'd buy at a gas station. It was over priced and pretty gross. It took me a few tries to order a beer that they actually had in stock.
Their beer selection is mostly, if not all import bottles. They do not have a tap system. The bottles are bar priced and most I had were far beyond fresh.
I will avoid this place the next time I'm down there.

Second time I have been here and both times were a great time. Small location at the end of a long row of stores. Small bar of five to six stools and six to seven tables for food and drink. Great service with knowledgable bar tender. Beers in coolers next to bar for easy selection and quick service. Selection is very good of west of the Mississippi and foreign brews. Very basic menu of food that I had to pass due to eating lunch before hand. Great location I will always go to when in the area during a weekday.

This is a place to check out when your in St. Augustine. Tons of beer from different Countries, and regions in the world. Food sucks reminds me of bad school food. But all and all if you have a few extra bucks to spend and want to try alot of different beers with friends this is the place.
A- Nice calm atmosphere in the early evening on to a nice bar setting later when people find their way to the watering hole.
Q-S- The quality is only for the beer not food. Fair is my final note on quality the beer sales itself... they just mark the price up. Service is good if not busy. If busy service is just ok.
I say the beer is a bit pricey. The food is not relavent. Standard pub grub.

I actually did not mind this place at all. I hit it up on the way back home as I heard it might be a decent haunt. I was suprised by the decent selection on tap for sure. Lots of English beers, nothing really crazy but still fairly decent. Staff seemed a bit pre occupied but there were still attentive enough. Easy to miss if you are lookign for it the location could be a bit better, but over this was a decent stop, not sure if I would go back though. Not a bad place per se, just not something I would feel the need to try and find again.

This is a small low end restaurant in the back of the main St. George shopping street area. There is a small bar with about 5 stools and roughly 8 small tables. There are two large refridgerators sporting all the beers (over 150). A large TV was playing one of the Euro 2008 game.
Service was decent while we looked over the large beer menu. There are a lot of macro and easy to find beers here, but there is some nice finds like Wiehenstephaner and Unibroue beers. Nice belgian and import selection, but the American micros are a bit lacking IMHO.
This was probably the only other stop besides A1A brewpub to find a beer during the day. Worth a stop if in town.

This has got to be one of the most bizarrely located beer bars I've ever been to. Located at the end of what I'll describe as a Corridor of Overpriced Things You Will Never Need, Rendezvous is a tiny little establishment with about 8 tables, a bar that seats 4, and three heftily-stocked beer coolers. An excellent selection of imports. Everything from Corona and Heinekin on the low end to Konig Hoeven, Chimay and Unibroue on the other end of the spectrum. My wife and I had a Konig Hoeven Triple and a Nostradomus Belgian Brown. Our bill was $13.50; not too bad in my eyes for such quality brews. The dude behind the bar was friendly and seemed knowledgable about his brews. We later ran into him at Mill Top (bad beer there!) and he mentioned that he was on his 3rd round of drinking every beer there. My only disappointment was the underrepresentation of American Micros. No Dogfish Head, no Great Divide, no Bells. But still, an impressive selection. Guys, if your wife or girlfriend feels like shopping for ceramic dolphins and tourist T-shirts, let her. Tell her you'll be just down the corridor.
