So it's not actually a brewery, but it is a beer bar worth checking out in Ybor City. Also got to mention that i went there on a Monday night, so that probably factored into my experience there. I liked the vibe as soon as i walked in. You walk through an outdoor courtyard/beer gardern to get into the bar. There were a few tables occupied outside, and a few more customers inside seated at the bar, but it was not very crowded at all and totally chill. The woman working the bar was friendly and personable, and when we went back outside to sit and take advantage of the 70 degree weather (being from Baltimore in the middle of January), she also was our server. The beer selection is pretty much top notch. I had a Jai Alai, a sweetwater 420, and a Terrapin Wake'n Bake. There were plenty of other options i could have ordered too not distibuted in MD, as well as craft stables like DFH, Bells, etc and imports, esp Belgians. Food was also very good. I had a salad, and my buddy and i split a buffalo chicken pizza. The menu is not huge, but what we ordered was quality for sure. I enjoyed my evening there eating and drinking in a chill atmoshere, and was hoping to make it back before my week in Tampa was done, but was not able to. If i find myself back in the area in the future it will definitely be one of my stops.

Really cool place on the west end of 8th Av. in the Ybor City section of Tampa.
Parking is right next door and only 1/2 a block from city parking if the free is full.

BBQ buffet is available M-F from. 11-3 pm. Priced by the pound - currently $6.50/lb - except on Wednesday night. Good que and plenty of Bottles
The beer selection is really good. 32 taps and over a hundred bottles span the range from Belgians (Scaldis & Corsendonk) to locals like Cigar City. Bottle selection is as broad and delicious as the taps.
The look is really cool with an expansive, shaded outdoor area, a big L-shaped bar and a half dozen tables inside.
So far, this is the best craft beer place in Tampa. Too bad the don't brew their own anymore. C'est la vie.

Tucked away just off the strip in Ybor just off 7th Ave. I approach the place with some friends and you have to enter through a gated area in to the patio. Really digging the patio area, its all stone for the for the floor, patio tables with umbrellas picnic tables, a citrus tree or two, and a little fountain in the middle. Crowd is mixed everything from hipsters to a group of middle aged folks having a few beers. Just beyond the patio is the "stage" where they have live music, a local band is doing sound check and setting up their gear as we walk by. Inside I'm loving the character of this place has a bit of a dive feel to it but in a good way. A nice wood bar forms a L along the left and front side wall as you enter. Bartender got to us quickly and was helpful. The tap selection was pretty decent but nothing to rare to blow you away, but plenty of good ol stand byes that you love (Lagunita IPA, Jai Alai, Old Rasputin etc) Good selection of bottles as well. We ordered closed out tabs were served quickly and courteously and headed to the patio. Waitress addressed us said she would be right with us but continually passed us by. We tracked her down at the bar and she said that table service has ended so that was a bit, frustrating...We ordered the johnny bread which was fantasic and the Northstar Pizza which was just as excellent and both were priced fairly. All in other than the issue with the service on the patio this place was great! Right by Spaghetti warehouse so it makes a nice spot to stop in before after a nice dinner and it's just short walk down to Tampa Bay Brewing Company (we made that walk when we departed). This is a cool spot that i recommend to anyone visiting The Bay Area or any Locals looking for a more laid back side of Ybor.

This isn't really a brewery, but they do have one of the better beer selections in Tampa on tap and bottle. Located off the beaten path you get a bit quieter atmosphere than the rowdy main strip. Dimly lit, and open space. They get some very interesting bands that play here. Food is a little above your average bar food, and everything is reasonably priced. Bartender is able to actually talk to you, unlike most of the over-crowded bars in Ybor. This is a nicely hidden jewel if you like good beer.

Not a brewery but great selection and knowledge of beers. A hidden gem of ybor city. Most of the locals know this spot and flock here for great tap selection. We arrived one weeknight when a local brewer and brand were doing a tasting. They had the local brewer on tap that night. Sision not my thing but local home brewer and tasting ... they are doing something right. I've seen a quite birthday party, a crowded comedy night in the cold and rain and a decent band. This place needs to be on your next visit to ybor city. Food selection was lacking but well worth your visit.

This is not a brewery, despite the name. It is just a cool little beer bar, in an area of Ybor City that used to be quite bustling.

This place is super cool, super mellow, and just off the beaten path, in Ybor City terms.

Nice tap selections, perhaps 12-15. Reasonably priced bottles. Balanced selection between craft and import, with most imports tending to be Belgian, which is fine with me.

They frequently have nice entertainment, and usually a relaxed crowd. Some local talent performs, DJs, live art shows, bands from reggae to hip-hop to alt-rock, etc. As I said, usually mellow...

Very cool setting in Ybor City...rustic looking town, old school. Nice patio setting in the front. Seems filled with regulars.

Selection is rather decent for Florida, at least given my experience with Florida bars. One cooler full of 750's and another full of 12oz beers and a few 22's. Cooler stocked with Ommegang, St. Bernardus, Chimay, Vla-Dieu, Karmeliet, Koning, Rochefort, Schneider, Vicotry, La Chouffe, Dogfish, Great Divide, Stone, Leffe, Sam Smith...and many more! Tap selection consisted of Allagash Tripel, Delerium Tremens, Old Rasputin, Lagunitas Pils, Anchor Steam, Magic Hat #9, Turbo Dog, Hop Devil and a few others...good selection! Disappointed there was no Cigar City, but I hear they are behind on production so no fault to the bar.

Bartender was very helpful...knew his stuff. Overall a great experience and would come back if ever in town again.

Awesome little place in Ybor City. Main building set back from the road with a nice, tree filled courtyard in the front. Bar front was open to the courtyard, nice atmosphere. Free jukebox with an awesome selection.

Very decent tap selection, could have had a few more high end beers and a Belgian or two would have been nice. Saw two coolers behind the bar. One with a nice selection of 12oz bottles and another with a decent selection of 750's, mostly Belgian and for about $15 each.

We were too early for food but had a couple of wonderful beers. Loved this place.
