So this place is in an Industrial park near the airport and strip clubs. Which makes it a true diamond in the rough.

They have a tasting room next to the brewery, that looks more like a bar. They don't offer fodd, but they do allow you to order delivery.

The beer is outstanding. They have won awards for their beers. However, their spanish cedar smoked IPA is the flagship. They really push the limits, but the flavors are not overdone. The cocoloco is a cocoa nib and coconut beer that is actually a good session beer, as the flavors are well balanced and understated.

The service is good. They know their beers and seem like they like to work there.

In my opinion this is THE best brewery in Florida. The only drawback might be the location and the bathrooms. However, the beer is worth the visit. Make sure to stop by while in the Tampa Area.

CCB is an excellent place to visit. Highly recommended! Probably the best beer tour I've ever been on. Fun, informative, and lots of beer. The taproom has a ton of beers on tap and solid service.

The tasting room at the brewery is pretty awesome. Such a diverse variety of amazing beer. You can buy stuff to go- growlers, cans, merch, etc. This place is without a doubt my favorite Florida brewery. Jai Alai is one of the best IPAs I've had. The other beer styles they offer are stellar. They do have cask beers also!

Always something new and tasty at ccb, sometimes it takes longer than it should to get some. Worth the wait though.
