Craft Beer in Tampa Bay

  1. Local craft beer of the week: Pep in Yo Step Double IPA, Infusion Brewing Co.

    Bars & Spirits

    Pepper beers walk a fine line. The best ones, as is the case with most spicy endeavors, are as much about flavor as they are heat.

  2. Local craft beer of the week: Brett Singel Aged on Plums, Crooked Thumb Brewing

    Bars & Spirits

    It's been nearly a year since the first bottle release from Safety Harbor's Crooked Thumb Brewing. Two brews were released at that event, both from the brewery's Abbey of the South series, a line of brews inspired by the iconic styles traditionally brewed in Belgian monasteries.

  3. Local craft beer of the week: Cherry Blonde ale, St. Pete Brewing

    Bars & Spirits

    One of the major benefits of visiting your local brewery is the ability to try one-off batches, often versions of flagship offerings with various flavoring additions.

  4. Local craft beer of the week: Salt-Peter Soft Pickle Gose from Southern Brewing

    Bars & Spirits

    We'll just go ahead and ignore the name here, instead focusing on the fact that, yes, this is a pickle-flavored beer.

  5. Local craft beer of the week: Malt liquor? Yes — 3 Daughters Brewing's Ctrl + Malt + Del

    Bars & Spirits

    In 2004, Delaware's Dogfish Head Brewery was well into the process of making a name for itself through envelope-pushing beers, like 120-Minute IPA and World Wide Stout, brews notorious for their astronomical alcohol content.
