Wonderful spot in north Tampa. I counted about 20 beers on which includes some guest and cider. Tried three Mother's Day sours. Not a bad on in the bunch. Service solid and knowledgeable. Could have stayed all day

Best domestic saisons I've ever had... sampled several of the style while here and every single one was a beer I would buy every time I saw it locally... large room with plenty of picnic style tables... loads of beers on tap with a few guest taps... would be a regular here without a doubt...

Great find while in Tampa Bay. Big selection of drafts, some of which are pretty wacky and other of which are Belgian traditionals. The space itself is clean and inviting. Would visit again.

We came here for a TBBW hangover event, and the set up was more than a little awkward, to say the least. The line to the taps was out the door, which at first, makes it seem like a busy, popping, large place. However, once you get up there, you realize there is something slowing things down to an extreme degree because people are ordering one beer and taking forever doing it. Possibly payment issues.

Nonetheless, the bar is tiny AF, whether you're there on an off day or not, and smaller sized brewing equipment is so packed in there it almost seems as if it is spilling out into the waiting area. It seems they have rapidly outgrown their location, but at least on this day they had a permit (I assume) for additional outdoor drinking and had a truck outside pouring additional brews in order to alleviate the lines on the inside. There's a small picnic table area outside as well which I think is the central beer garden on a normal day.

Beer list is moderately sized for how small they are, focusing primarily on farmhouse ales and sours. The quality of the brews is fairly high, but many are clearly using the same base, some of which aren't drastically distinct from one-another.

I dug this place. Wish I could have stayed longer. Then again, I was on vacation and in a good mood coming from the beach. A lot smaller than I expected. Nice service but not overly upbeat. Beer selection was decent, and the beers I took with me were fantastic. I'd stop in again, for sure.

This is a really exceptional little place; maybe nano-sized.
Great beers, with clear strengths in Belgian influenced styles. Great IPAs, citrius & floral. Dips into some nice sours, Brett's, & Berliners with interesting wilds notes but rarely too funky.
Casual, local crowd & staff. Comfortable with some serious beer hounds.
Always try to stop in when I get to Dunedin.

Full of locals most of the time, sour funk factory of Tampa, large selection of brews on tap with the occasional bottle release, friendly staff and a huge contributor to the Tampa Bay beer scene.

All around great place, the do exceptionally good IPAs/Pales and Berliners. Service is always top notch and they're always willing to walk you through the selection and explain things.

A diverse array of taps, favoring sour and wild ales. Small facility, especially considering the range of ambitious beers available, but it has some covered and uncovered areas outside. Super service from the owners and others.

A neat little space in Dunedin. They have a nice, but small area for seating outside and some inside the tasting room. Really good vibe, great service, will be back!

The outstanding point of 7venth (Seventh) Sun is the variety of beers they offer. Goses and sours are not very common, and this place had them. Also saisons, creamsicle, what the hell? This place is putting out some real funky stuff, and just to expand your tasting palate, you should stop by.

The beer here is really good. There is plenty of parking, and they fill growlers. I really liked this place. Enjoyed it much.

Really liked this spot. Little hole in the wall with friendly service, awesome prices $2/4 ounce pours), and a really unique selection.

Had an odd and very refreshing Cucumber Gose when there while trying many other styles I haven't had.

Will be going back.

7venth Sun makes some excellent beers. I think they make some of the best locally brewed beer of anyone in the Tampa/St. Pete area. I only rated a 3 for atmosphere due to being located in a small retail strip center. If they were a block or two away on Main St. or more in the heart of old town Dunedin, it would be a much more pleasant atmosphere. Also, they make some great beers, but sometimes the variety available on tap is limited in selection and they don't always have something that I'd like to drink. I guess that's the chance you take when you get beer directly from the source. Because when the right stuff is on tap, it's really great.

Incredible brewery. A little small and it gets pretty packed which is why I rated atmosphere and service just under 4. There is a reason it's packed all the time. They make incredible beer. They always have a nice selection of beers. My favorites so far are the Mangrove DIPA and Guilty Pleasure. If I lived close to this brewery I would be a regular.

Stopped in on Thursday of TBBW right at opening. Already full, which is not that difficult because there are maybe 5 seats. Who cares...when there are more beers on tap than seats you are in the right place.

A nice spectrum of beers available from a double IPA to a style I personally love (and is rare as heck in the Midwest) a Gose. Each one is well calibrated and interesting. This place has it's shit together and I'm glad to have gotten a little off the beaten path to find it. Highly recommended.

Atmosphere- Very cool feel being here. Not fancy by any stretch of the word, but you get a slight hometown feel here.

Quality- This was the first time having their beer and I wasn't disappointed. Had 5 different beers from them and enjoyed each one. Possibly my favorite brewery in the Tampa area.

Service- The staff was very nice and knowledgeable about the beers. They offered a lot of different suggestions and gave a background on each beer.

Selection- They had about 14 different beers on tap while I was there. IPA's, Stouts, Porters, Belgians and sours. Very nice variety.

Food- I don't believe they serve food here.

Value- Prices were very good on everything from samples to growlers. Definitely recommend coming here.

My wife and I stopped here to sample their beers while we were on vacation. The pub is kind of a storefront setting in a small strip mall with parking to the side and rear. A front window flips up so that there is an open-air feeling inside. Beer is ordered at the bar and then you find yourself a seat in this tiny place. Bat tables are available on the front sidewalk, and two picnic tables are in side area next to the parking lot.

There were 10 beers on tap and we ordered four 4-oz. pours as samplers. (The brewery appears to pour any-sized order into large goblets instead of having sampler glasses, so this makes for awkward carrying if you order too many.) Each of the beers that we had were right to style, although somewhat unique within the style with flavoring adjuncts in some of them (blood orange, key lime, orange), and all were very tasty. We rated them between a B-plus or an A-minus grade. It would have been nice to stay longer and try the other 6 beers, but we will be back again someday.

So while I was in Cigar City and Tampa Bay Brewing, everyone told me that if I had time to go to 7venth Sun Brewery up in Dunedin. It was a little bit out of the way but my wife and I were so pleased that we went there. 7venth Sun is one of those hidden gems that only the locals know about.

The location is in a small strip mall with only 4 or 5 shops in it. The brewery is crammed into one small area then there is a tiny tap room adjacent to it. There were 10 beers or so that were on their list on the particular day that I went there in addition to one mead.

My wife and I got the sampler which included all 10 beer that they had. The pours were very large for a sample, almost half of a pint glass each. The beers were really varied. They had their Mangrove DIPA which I guess is their standard but in addition to that they had a lot of beers that were spiked with other bacteria like pedio and brett. One that was surprising was their Bretta Off Dead, really interesting. I also liked their Citrus Grinch Saison, it was a really good beer.

Our favorite was the Red D'Or, a belgium strong with a big hit of raspberry or strawberry. We ended up getting a growler of it to go because it was so good. I also picked up a hat from these guys because I like to support the little breweries who are making really good beer.

I recommend heading to dunedin for the beers over at 7venth Sun anytime that you are in the area. It is worth the drive and has a "locals only" sort of feel to it. The people working were awesome and the beers were fantastic, you can't ask for much more.

Visited on 1/4/14 in the afternoon. Interesting beers were to be had on tap. Great tiny hangout with brewery in open view and hands reach haha. Great service and prices for any size from 4oz-12oz-16oz. Had their clementine saison. Absolutely delicious. The staff there talk with everyone who walks in and are super nice. They have neat things there like a porter with tart cherry,cacao and vanilla. A raspberry Belgian strong dark ale,a wittier done with a Brett yeast. 2 Berliners. There was more as well. They got a lot of stuff fermenting and aging too. Great place,easy to approach and get to. 5stars

I travel a lot for work and came across 7venth Sun while traveling outside of Tampa.

I spent the better part of the afternoon talking beer with "Post", the tender and enjoying several of their great beers.

The beer is eclectic with a focus on creative twists to the less exciting styles. (i.e. Mango FYA or the cucumber/truffle Gose... "It Gets the Gose")

They have a great grasp on the direction of "new" beer culture and dive right in with experimental hops and wild yeast strains.

Still a work in progess. Small, quaint brewery thus far. I enjoy the atmosphere. You can watch them in action while enjoying a beer. Year-round selections are par. I hear of many specialties & one-offs that they offer but I never get to try them. Right place right time I guess. Clique'y in that sense or still too new? Its still coming together & I expect good things for them in the future.

Love this place! Whenever I head to the Dunedin area I make a point of stopping by for at least one beer. They are poised to blow up soon and I'm stoked for them, they deserve it.

Small joint off of Alt US 19 in Dunedin (just north from Main St.)

Limited seating inside, a few tables outside with some high tops in front of the bar just off the road. Parking in the side and rear of the building with a bike rack next to the front door...which is on the side of the building.

Bartenders & brewers are all great people who will sit there and talk with ya all day (as long as there isn't a customer to take care of, of course) about beer or local happenings. Love the dog friendly atmosphere as does my Lab. The amount of hipsters the hang around does get a bit annoying but that's just a hazard of Dunedin.

Prices are great: $5-7 for a pint & $2 for a 4oz pour or anything. With 10 beers on tap at any time, that leads to a good night of tasting! Growler fills available on most everything. Merch is for sale but if you want something of theirs bottled then you need to get there early on one of the few days they have bottles (check out their app on the App Store for all their beers on tap and info on their bottle releases).

A cool little place on Alt. 19 across from a convenience store.
Outdoor seating for smokers, with shade, and two small bars and a couple of tables indoors.
10 beers on tap with a really easy to decipher price list that also lets you know if you can get a growler.
Not open on Mondays.

First time to visit 7venth Sun was this past weekend while in Tampa area for the Sour, Lambic, and Berliner Weisse Fest. The brewery and taproom was great. It was a lovely sunny afternoon, and they have plenty of outside seating (7ish tables, plus bar-stools along a huge open window). Dog friendly, which is always a plus for me, even when I leave my dog at home. The staff was knowledgeable, extremely helpful and friendly to boot. The whole place was very clean, and had a great feel to it. I will absolutely go back every time I'm within the Tampa metro.
