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.

This is a can't-be-missed stop for any BA coming into or through the Tampa Bay Area. This brewery had a nice knowledgeable tour that included some fun samples of beers that weren't quite ready to be bottled, and the tour guide was really nice.

Good, rare release beers can often be had at the brewery only.

Loved the tour, the knowledge we received and the beers we got to try. The tasting room is fun and cool to collect the cups.

very nice place, roomy, well lit. It has two separate bar areas one for growler fills and one just to drink at. Very clean bathrooms and I thought the staff was nice. I would definitely hang out here and drink if I were in Tampa.
