Brewery of the Week – Tampa Bay Brewing Company (Ybor City)

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.
