Southend Brewery is located in the Wagner Building circa 1880 that used to serve as store and warehouse of F.W. Wagner who dealt in "cotton, rice, naval stores, wholesale groceries, fertilizers, liquors , tobaccos cotton gins, coffee mills and assorted other items, and manufactured cotton presses" according to their website. The have ambitious goals with a three story building mostly housed in glass so you can see the huge steel and copper brew tanks inside, with the bottom floor serving as a traditional restaurant, middle floor having pool tables and darts for a more bar-like atmosphere, and the third floor supplying banquet space. The beer flight is the best I have EVER experienced as they pour 8 generous glasses (at least 5 oz.) of their brews for only $9. They serve them on a tray that has circles outlined with the type of beer printed inside the circle that the glasses are placed on so you always know what you are drinking (one of my chief complaints of other flights that don't provide a description--like you are going to just remember what each one is?!). All the beers were tasty and I liked them all--even the stout which I am not typically a fan of. They all tended to be lighter, crisper versions of their type, and the flight includes: "Blonde Light, Blonde, Ironman Wheat, Scarlet, Bombay Pale Ale, East Bay Brown, Oatmeal Stout, and Seasonal Brew" (http://southendbrewery.com/New_Southend_Menu_.pdf)  I love love loved this place and plan on returning many times--besides the ingenious beer flight presentation, the turkey, brie and berry sandwich we ordered was delicious, and their menu choices were a step up from typical pub fare with "Smokehouse" entrees, sandwiches, wood-fired pizzas, and plenty of southern influence. Voted #1 microbrewery in the South, you will not be disappointed in your Southend Brewery experience. http://www.southendbrewery.com/
