This is Tampa beer geek's little secret.

Usually around a dozen taps of their own stuff plus a few locals (CCB, TBBC, 7th sun). No food, but tons of places to sit and unlike CCB, not crowded at all.

High quality beers. Great variety. They are doing some great things with their beer here. Hopburst rotation is usually a great to amazing beer. Mosaic/galaxy blend was phenomenal. Their bungalow berliner weiss is great, and the fruit treatments to the base beer are amazing. They usually have a dunkle, porter, stout, wit-bier, saison as well other styles on tap, meaning if you like beer at all there is something here for you.

The only down side of this place is the location. They have a nice sitting area in the back to neutralize this, and a large awning protects a good amount of space to sit if its raining.

i love coming to this place and the beer are top notch. they deserve to be as well known as CCB, cycle, and some other tampa bay breweries, but im kind of glad they are more low-key. i doubt that lasts too long tho.

Interesting spot out of the way. Good tap selection with a wide variety of in house brews. More of a home brewer's place with supplies

Nice, quiet place, lots of room, bright, fun


Amazing. Everything is fresh, new, well put together. It's top top top notch stuff here and they everything


Fair. Some of the younger guys are a little rude and unhelpful. As I am new to brewing and winemaking, they seemed like it was a bother to answer some of my questions... Except for the guy with the dark curly hair that likes dr who, he is the nicest person in the brewing world I've come across. Willing to help and offer tips without being asked.

They have a ton of stuff. Everything you will ever need for brewing. Everything. They a.so have a small selection of craft beer to take home and a bar with about 10 drafts.

The prices are a tiny bit above average, but fair, this place is a great shop and the only one I go to.

I would like to give my opinion on this establishment. My experience's with this business has been exceptional since I first visited their store when it was on Busch Blvd. Got all my beginning brewing equipment and recipe from here (Tuckers Pale Ale) extract with specialty grains. They wrote down a site to go to, to learn how to brew, of course you know its www.howtobrew.com duh.

My experience here was awesome! I was so worried about going in being a new guy and stuff but they hooked me up! Very friendly! From then on out, I visited regularly as I became more involved in brewing, asked questions, got new equipment and each time they were very helpful.

When Southern Brewing moved to their new location, I was very excited. I drove there and was taken aback at their awesome location in Seminole Heights! Lots of space and no rubbing elbows when getting your grain and equipment! Nice outside area. You can grab a brew there also! Oh, the addition of getting your C02 tanks exchanged is a plus and convenient. They are still very helpful too! I've went in a couple of times and their grain barrels were a few ounces from being empty and I told them and bam, they filled em up quickly and I was able to get my grains quick! Any questions you want to ask, feel free, they will answer them. I like how they are very straightforward and to the point too.

Thanks southern brewing!

Starting up again in homebrewing and went over to this place to purchase my ingredients for the brew. Very nice set up and feel, much like a homebrewer might want their home brewery environment to look. Excellent selection of equipment and ingredients for a local HBS. Service was very friendly and laid back and I really liked the fact that you can enjoy some homebrew while shopping. Nice patio out back as well. Also serves some commercial craft brews and will be serving their own in the near future. Can't wait to go back.

Over priced but generally good/ok selection. Sales reps are young know-it-all hipster types with allot of useless college degrees that apparently are not in sales. Generally rude, condescending comments and over all very unhelpful. I heard good things about this place and needed a store near-by to provide me with live yeast as mail ordered types are not doing well in the Florida mail. Too bad, but I will not go back...why do the comment lengths have to be so long? I said all I needed to and I'm just adding this to get to 500
