Summer Suds: Best Breweries In Tampa Bay

posted by Zac Blobner -

Zac Blobner & Len Martez love jumping around town for a cold brew after finishing up a show at 620 WDAE or getting back from Bucs' training camp!  Here are a few of their favorites in Tampa Bay!

The Cuban Sandwich Festival is this weekend on the @hccfl Ybor campus! 😋 In case you didn't know, Tampa is home of the Cuban sandwich! Watch our latest Facebook video to learn more about this tasty sandwich's Ybor City roots, and then head to HCC Ybor this weekend to taste this local delicacy for yourself! 👌

Next is Coppertail Brewing Co. located just on the edge of Ybor City by IKEA... set to be the premier spot for a rich local beer before the Rays game after the team scoots across town from St. Petersburg in a few years.  Coppertail rapidly gained a strong support from the day they opened their doors and got their product pushed in Publix, Gas Stations, and plenty of other retailers in the area.  Plus, partnering with Stein & Vine for food, one of the worst kept secrets as far as hidden gems in Tampa Bay!

Today’s Monday Pick-Me-Up is Barrel Aged Pistachio Imperial Stout. Get your growler/crowler today #coppertail #coppertailbrewing #tampa #ybor #mondaypickmeup

Speaking of St. Petersburg, the Rays will be there for a few more years, right? How about Green Bench Brewing for a nice craft beer before or after a Rays game at The Trop!  Not a bad trip to the beach either if you're needing some sand in your life...

Moving on to perhaps the biggest Brewery by name in the area, one that embodies Tampa Bay to the core - Cigar City! As far as clout goes in the Craft beer world, Cigar City is known best outside of Florida compared to other local breweries... a name that carries weight and beer that backs it up!

Looks like a nice Sunday. Thanks for the post @lccj2008. #cigarcity

Y’all. We brewed a Witbier with the one and only @treyburton8 today (and then we had some celebratory brews) and we can honestly say he’s one of the nicest humans we’ve had the pleasure of working with. What a standup guy who’s helping us make a difference and raise funds for @childrenshomesocietyofflorida. Thank you, Trey for putting in the work with us this morning and for your love of the craft and giving back. Mark those calendars for July 5th and keep an eye out for event details on this beer supporting the babies! #craftbeer #childrenshomesociety #treyburton #gonoles #jk #gogators #dabears #gobirds #gofootball #🤷🏼‍♀️ #thankful #fundraising #witbier
