On my last trip to Tampa, I had to vist the Tampa Bay Brewing Co. Easy to find, after a short trip on the street car to Ybor City. Located in a large mall-complex, there is a large indoor restaurant/bar area, plus an outdoor patio sitting area. I sat at the large copper topped bar with a view of the brewing set up. Nicely decorated Mug Club mugs displayed behind the bar and hiding on shelves throughout the place. It was midafternoon, and there only 3 other patrons. They had 8 beers on tap, plus two seasonals which were recommended by my server. Also had some very good 'guest taps' including Fin du Monde.
Printed beer menu plus an up-to-date chalk board were a nice touch. I was tempted by the sampler, but had a pint of Burning Bunny (a hoppy rauchbier) and the McBrew's Scotch Ale. Both were very tastey, and reasonalbly priced at $5 per pint.
I didn’t eat on this visit, but the menu looked pretty decent.
Althought it was nothing spectacular, was still an enjoyable place to spend the afternoon.

Large venue with both indoor and outdoor seating including a large table for large parties. 8 regular taps [although out of one on my visit] plus 3 seasonals. Good service but understaffed for the large mid week lunch crowd. Food looked good. Large pub atmosphere. Flatscreen TVs available but not featured.

Came by for a friend's birthday celebration as the first stop on a successful bar crawl across Ybor. The lady and myself opened up with a One Night Stand Pale Ale and a burger each. It was a great feeling to just hang out in the patio area with a beer and watch the night life unfold. They've got good beer and good food, just bring the good company and you're set!
