Visit a Brewery

Gainesville has acquired a thriving brewery scene over the years. They’re great to go to for a tasting during the day, but many are open late hours into the night! Try one of our favorites like Tall Paul’s Brewpub & Alligator Brewhouse. Many gather here every weekend to listen to the live music and drink their delicious brews. Although it can get crowded, the historic brewpub always has a great energy. Get a true taste of Gainesville with their beers that are all made from local ingredients!
