It goes without saying that the beers are amazing! The variety is exceptional and they are always throwing on new kegs as soon as one kicks.

For the most part the bartenders are very good and cool, but there are a few that kind of cater to people they know. I understand taking care of locals/regulars is important but at a place like CCB I would imagine there are a ton of out of towners every day.

There are food trucks hanging out at the brewery quite often that have all been very good. They also added a sandwich shop in the tasting room but I have not had a chance to try it yet.

We take the tour every time we go! You can't beat a tour and a beer for $5, and you get to keep the pint glass! You also get to sample beers that are almost ready to be bottled/kegged which are sometimes their more rare brews.

I highly recommend a trip to CCB and the city of Tampa to everyone! You will not be disappointed.

I went to this location on a trip to Tamp for the holidays with my wife. It was a very nice place just off a main street in a large wear house. the selection of beers at CCB is really surprising, they have things that I have never heard of before at the brewery and I love that when it happens. I tried a bunch of different beers as a sampler then went and did the tour of the brewery.

The tour was $5 a person but included a beer, thats a fair deal in my opinion for sure. The tour was great, it was buy an older guy who knew the brewery pretty well. It wasn't that informative as we didn't really go through the brewing process but he talked a lot about all of the ingredients. All of the things that I wanted to see he took me over to and explained. being a hombrewer I might have been obnoxious to him because I had to keep asking questions but he handled it really well.

we met a really cool couple there who played shuffleboard with us. It seemed like there were a lot of good people there. There was no food in the brewery but there was a good food truck outside. In general it was a great place with a lot of really awesome beers. I would recommend this place to anyone in the area.

stopped by the brewery on my way back to the airport. very glad I did.

They had a very large number of tabs with some awesome brews. Most beers you can get a sample.
Torcedores Series Lab Rat White IPA 4.25
southern slice 4.00
Humidor Series Smoked English-Style Stout 4
Guava Grove American Sour Ale 4.25

I wish they had more of their beers available in bombers. There were only two types available and i got both. There also was a large number of their can of the standard favoriates like the jai alai IPA etc.

Its a cool place and I love that they have a person hand rolling cigars in the tasting room. The staff isn't the friendliest, and lack of food selection really hurt my reviews. Overall I will be going back, hopefully when it is a little less crowded. It really had a college bar feel to it. Maybe I'm being a little too harsh, but I'm used to places like Founders, Sierra and Stone which all set the bar very high.
