At the heart of historic Ybor city is the Tampa Bay Brewing Company.
I’ve been wanting to visit this one for some time so I was glad that I could make it happen. Luckily, it exceeded expectations.
The lively area lead us directly to Centro Ybor and its famous Brewery. Almost connected to the avenue, this inviting spot has a ton of seating both inside and out with a bar at each. It was a great day so we chose the patio with a view of the endless foot traffic on Ybor’s main strip. TBBC produces 8 original beers and also offers a few seasonals. “The Point Session Ale,” and the “Reef Donkey,” were my go-to’s. The “Reef Donkey” is a classic and one of the Brewery’s staple beers. To me, it is the ideal Florida Beer. To go with the top-notch brews, TBBC offers a unique food menu, something that a lot of Breweries can’t claim.
Overall, The Tampa Bay Brewing Company is one of a kind and placed perfectly in the historic district of Ybor. The atmosphere and setting make it perfect for a beer afternoon or dinner with some drinks.
