So now that 2014 is off and running, we're looking forward to some new micro (and some not so micro) breweries opening in the Tampa Bay area. Some of them you've probably heard of such as Coppertail Brewing as mentioned in earlier blog posts. However, there are other breweries that will be opening their taps, er, doors in 2014. Some breweries had their "soft opening" already and are preparing for a "grand opening" later this year, chock-full of food trucks, live music, and, of course, beer. What's a soft opening you ask? Let Daniel Ocean can explain.
Pair 'O Dice Brewing opened in 2013 and will have their grand opening in Clearwater on Saturday January 18, 2014. Meanwhile, Two Henrys Brewing Company located in Plant City has not only begun operations as of October 2013, but they even have a running club that is up and...well, running. Meanwhile, 7venth Sun Brewery located in Dunedin, just celebrated their 2nd anniversary and introduced their bottle of Solitary Confinement, which is "an Imperial Porter that has been aging on Maker's Mark barrels for 12 months." Sounds delicious!
At Tampa Brew Tours, we are more than giddy about the opportunity to not only do some vital "Research & Development" concerning these breweries, but also giving locals, tourists, and beer lovers alike the opportunity to sample the wide variety of craft beers in the Tampa Bay area.
