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.

I absolutely love this place! If you are ever in the Tampa Bay area and enjoy great beer, do yourself a favor and pay these guys a visit. Inviting atmosphere, knowledgeable staff, and they hook it up with "green beer samples... I was a little tipsy by the end of the tour.

Great place, great beer.

The handful of visits, to include last year's Hunahpu fiasco, have all been a good time. Never seem to have any stouts in the taproom when I visit but will return any chance I get.
