I visited Tampa Bay Brewing Co. on Thursday, July 23, 2009 during a business trip.

Nice, spacious facility with inside and outside bars and seating. The bartenders were friendly, informative and efficient.

I didn't have time to eat there, so I can't comment on the food.

Their pale ale was very nice, but my favorite was the Elephant Foot IPA. Excellent hop flavor profile. They had the IPA on tap in standard kegs and they also had a cask of it. I enjoyed comparing the two.

There is a nice cigar store & lounge a short walk away that is open late hours. I had a pale ale and two IPAs at the big bar inside, then walked to the cigar store and back. I sat at the small bar outside and enjoyed an Arturo Fuente with another IPA. Mighty good.

Overall, I would highly recommend the place. (790 characters)

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. (310 characters)

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! (365 characters)
