GOOD THINGS SPRING FROM HERE. First Magnitude is a craft brewery and tap room located in the South Main Street area of downtown Gainesville. We are about great beer, an excellent space for enjoying a pint, and being an active part of our community.

‘First Magnitude’ is inspired by the unique geologic characteristics of North Central Florida that give us the highest density of freshwater springs in the world. First magnitude springs are the most powerful – over 100 cubic feet of water per second boils up from their limestone openings to form cool, clear pools that feed our rivers and lakes. And the brightest star you can see with your naked eye is called a first magnitude star. Our three year round brews that are described below are always available in our tap room. We also offer small batch specialty beers on tap on a rotating basis, as well as guest taps from other craft breweries. Siren Blonde Ale is a refreshing, approachable choice for an afternoon at the beach or a sunset paddle. Featuring more hop character and bitterness than a standard blonde ale, she compares favorably with a pilsner. 72 Pale Ale is a beer for the hop lover. It has a prominent citrus and somewhat floral aroma paired with a bready malt note in the background. The beer has an enticing, light copper color and is balanced, but leans decidedly towards the hops in its flavor and aroma. It is medium-bodied with a semi-dry finish that leaves a lingering herbal/spicy sense on the tongue. The aroma is enhanced by dry hopping. ABV: 5.5%. Drift is First Magnitude’s dark, malt-focused beer. It is a robust English Mild that is full of malt flavor, but still has a medium body and can be fully enjoyed in warmer weather. ABV: 4.9%
