We are pretty darn lucky to be in the middle of one of the hot spots for craft beer in Florida. Just take a look at this heat map:
Besides Jacksonville, it appears the Tampa Bay area is the craft beer mecca of Florida. So, whenever a beer festival like Tampa Bay Beer Week or Creative Loafing's Spring Hops comes around, it's a great opportunity for the breweries and craft beer enthusiasts, like us, to come together and sample/drink some of the finest beers in the area. Recently, Tampa Bay Brewing Company had their Bad A** Beer Fest bringing 20 of our area's breweries to commemorate their TBBCo's new brewpub near Oldsmar.
If you can't make one of the awesome beer festivals, then take trip in our Beer Limo on a Tampa Brew Tour and take in some of the best breweries in town.
