On a totally separate note, I'll be down in Gainesville the first weekend of October, Staying in the Holiday Inn University (I'm told it's on the corner of University & 13th). No wheels available to me, so I'm looking for some recommendations for brewpubs/places to just sit, relax, have a good beer & a meal that's walking distance. The young guys I'm with will want to go booming, but I'm a married guy that's past that scene.

So if you were going to walk from the hotel to have dinner & a couple beers, maybe get crazy and have more than just a couple and watch sports, like to homebrew, and prefer craft beer, where would you go?

Phrog, best place to go to is Stubbie's & Steins. Good food, and over 350+ beers to choose from. A bit pricey, but a wonderful selection. If you are going Thursday-Saturday, get there a bit early to get a table or a spot a the bar as it does get jam-packed. Not open Sun/Mon. Only a mile or two from your hotel.

The site says 255 beers, but last time I was there they had a lot more as they are always expanding their menu.

I'll have to check it out, thanks! According to Google Maps, it's only .8 miles away - no excuse not to!

Are you spying on me?!? I arrive Thursday night and leave Sunday morning... The trip is on the government dime, we're doing pax lifts in support of UF's NROTC detachment. MAYBE 2 hours of flying per day, and LOTS of hangover recovery time (I mean time off)...

I'm in the NW of Gainesville. Met Chris at Hoggetown Ale Works just the other day. I'm prob the only person who came here without caring about the college or football. There's some really cool places around here, and Stubies is f*cking awesome! Was there last night. Had a dunkleweizen, a kolsch, a wheat doppelbock and it gets hazy after that....

For those of you looking to go AG, we're having a class coming up soon at Hoggetowne. It's free. There's always beer and pizza. I'm usually the guy teaching it. There's a sign up sheet at the shop.

For those of you who haven't tried it yet, head over to the Alcove. It's a new place across from Sharab. It's TINY but awesome. Great prices and a small but great selection. I'm going there tonight with the owner of Hoggetowne.

Alcove Specials:
$4.50 Cigar City Maduro Brown Drafts
$4.00 Sierra Nevada Fresh Hop Drafts

I had the Cigar City Jai Alai IPA there, one of the best IPA's I've had. Great atmosphere and service. One of the bartenders actually started brewing a few weeks ago.


We really should get together and drink each other's beer and shoot the ****.

Not really sure yet. I think he was planning on whenever the game with LSU was, but then decided against it. But then he thought of doing it next day (Sunday). I'll ask him tonight.

BTW, I work all day Saturday 12-7. Stop by if you get a chance, bring some beer. I always try to have something of mine on tap.
