Tampa Bay Brewing is located in located in the Ybor city square. It is a large building with lots of room. It has a cookie cutter brewpub feel with wood and brass. However, the folks all seemed to be enjoying themselves and it was a diverse crowd.

The service was good and the food looked good but I didn't try anything.

I had a cask IPA which was exceptional. They have a large tap selection which included Barley Wines.

If you are in Ybor city you should check it out. Most of the bars in this area are touristy and don't have a great selection. So it is really a no brainer. (581 characters)

Go here about once a week. Staff is always very nice and most of the time attentive. Food selection is good with specials happening most days of the week. Gets busy on the weekend but has plenty of outdoor seating/outdoor bar also. If had one complaint it would be the lack of guest taps, there are a few both nothing special. This is only off putting because its really a resturant with a brewery inside it (unlike their new location), so it makes you want a little more variety of beer when you come here often. This though is a great place to have a good beer with great people and is a huge hit with out of town friends. (624 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)
