Our Favorite Breweries Right Here In Tampa!
So many breweries right here in Tampa, which one will you be visiting?
Tampa is a beer lover’s paradise, and it is replete with exceptional local breweries creating signature beers that put our city on the proverbial hops map.
One of the best things about the entire Tampa Bay region is the large number of craft breweries in the area. Of the state’s 400+ breweries, nearly a quarter of them can be found within a short drive from downtown Tampa.
Thanks to the huge selection, there are more than enough options here in town to satisfy any beer cravings. Ranging from national brands like Cigar City, to statewide staples like Coppertail, and right down to local favorites like Woven Water, you can spend days on end brewery hopping, and never have the same experience again.
81Bay Brewing Company:
With a spacious and industrial setup, 81 Bay focuses on two things: drinking beer, and playing games. Grab a pint or a flight, then grab a ping pong paddle, pinball machine, or foosball table and enjoy yourself, particularly on weekends with live music!
4465 W Gandy Blvd #600
Angry Chair Brewing:
Take the name literally, you’ll want to keep an eye out for where you sit here. No spoilers, but the chairs are really unique here. A haven for beer geeks, this Seminole Heights brewery packs a lot into a smaller space. There’s no food, but deliveries are welcome so you can stay and enjoy the wide variety of beers!
6401 N Florida Ave
BarrieHaus Beer Co:
One of the newest breweries in town, BarrieHaus is run by a family that has been brewing beer for over 150 years. True to their German roots, the tap list specializes in mostly lagers, the smooth and crisp beers that take extra time and care to brew. The understated tap room and outdoor seating areas make it feel like a biergarten right in the middle of Ybor City.
1403 E 5th Ave
Bay Cannon Beer Company:
Another brewery that puts an emphasis on providing more than just good beer, Bay Cannon offers wine and sangria, and an enticing menu to keep you fed while you hang out in the bright, airy tap room.
2106 W Main St.
Cigar City Brewing:
While Cigar City isn’t an independent craft brewery, there’s something to be said for a beer known across the country that started right here in Florida. Jai Alai is the star, certainly, but the entirety of their Florida-themed beer list is definitely worth sampling. The Florida Man Double IPA is worth it for the name alone (while also tasting great, too).
