Meet at First Magnitude Brewery (1220 SE Veitch Street) for a  stroll to Depot Park to look for birds, and return to First Mag for a cold brew and good conversation. Birds and Brew is a monthly event meeting on the 1st Sunday evening. The walks generally run 45 minutes to an hour.


Be sure to check the start time each month as it will vary through the year.


All birding skill levels are welcome; enthusiasm is what matters! Bring your binoculars and a thirst for good craft beer (but if you forget your binoculars, stop by anyway, because we’ll have some to loan out).



  1. Hello, my name is Sharon and my husband Don Decker will be joining and hopefully we’re bringing two friends with us. We are new to the area and we are not familiar where it is so will have to put it in our GPS is it in Alachua. Thank you so much.

    • First Magnitude Brewing is at 1220 SE Veitch Street, Gainesville. You should be able to plug that address into Google Maps ( ) to get a sense of the location, but from University Avenue you drive south on Main Street, keep going straight when you get to the first traffic circle at Main and Depot Road, and then turn left when you get to the second traffic circle at Main and SE 10th Avenue. You’ll go about a tenth of a mile, and just before 10th dead-ends at Veitch Street, you should be able to park in the grassy lot on the right. From there you can walk down Veitch to the brewery’s entrance, or you can just go through the gate in the wooden fence into their “back yard.” We meet just inside the big garage-like entrance facing Veitch Street. It’s a popular place, and there should be lots of people around.

    • Here are GPS coordinates for the grassy parking lot located behind FM Brewery: 29.640248, -82.324462
