    Paterlieven is so tasty! Even comes in the big bottles. Neal is the real deal. Love this place on a mellow week night.

    Don't let the prices fool you. You get a lot more alcohol in these beers (up to 15% sometimes) and a lot more of it for the price. The bartenders here are friendly and knowledgeable. Ask them!

    The bathrooms are unisex. Don't even think of cutting the line.

    Bet your friends they can't identify the flag (the middle of three) on the wall left of the door. A yellow circle with black above and red below. It's the flag of aboriginal Australia.

    Boasting 100+ beers from around the world (and dozens of wines), The Independent is the coolest bar in St Pete to get some "liquid culture." Just don't ask about that thing hanging in the corner. -WV Read more

    Don't ask for a Bud Light, unless you feel like getting made fun of by the bartenders and regulars. If you want a Bud Light, just ask for an Okocim.

    If you're new to the fancy beer scene just ask the bartenders, they all are amazingly knowledgeable and friendly.

    Every beer here is imported. It's a little on the pricey side if you just want to get drunk, but for those wanting to try some really good brews, definitely give it a try. I suggest the Hobgoblin :)
