I never visited Tampa Bay Brewing Company when it was in its previous location. But I enjoyed coming here one evening with friends after seeing a movie in Ybor. It's conveniently located right in front of the theater. They brew a nice selection of beers and the menu provides a great deal of information about each one (hops and malts used, photos of each beer in the glass, etc). The food menu is extensive and the food was delicious. The atmosphere is pleasant and the location is prime for people watching, although nothing spectacular. The vibe is comparable to any chain restaurant (think Outback or Red Lobster). My only complaint is that the service is rather poor. We complained about it throughout the night and everyone in my group said they had also received mediocre service in previous visits.

Nice brewpub with good variety of beer on tap. A few to go cans in the cooler. Get the Reef Donkey if you like hops.
Cheers

Service was really good in this place, lots of locals hanging out. Quality is pretty good, nothing really stood out to me on the beer menu. Had a great IPA and that was about it! (Reef Donkey)

This place is the perfect brew pub. They have ok food, but the beer selection is great. They brew their own beer on site. They have everything ranging from IPA to dark stouts.

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.
