Craft Beer in Tampa Bay

  1. At Green Bench's Foeder event, learning about wild and sour ale, and drinking it, too

    Bars & Spirits

    Everyone loves a good beer festival, and locally we have more than a few great ones, especially during Tampa Bay Beer Week, which wrapped up on Sunday.

  2. Bar review: The price is right at Hawthorne Bottle Shoppe in St. Petersburg

    Bars & Spirits

    Downtown St. Petersburg's bar scene crept even further up Central Avenue last month, with the soft opening of Hawthorne Bottle Shoppe at the far west end of the Grand Central District.

  3. Bar review: Brasserie Saint Somewhere settles into new home

    Bars & Spirits

    Early on in my good beer education, I became a big fan of the two local options that were available in bottles at my beer shop. The first was Dunedin Brewery, which I wish I could still find in bottles nearby. The other was Saint Somewhere.

  4. Bar review: 81Bay Brewing has cool decor, great promise

    Bars & Spirits

    There's a new brewery that bills itself as South Tampa's first brewery. At first, that sounds improbable, but it checks out: The vast majority of Tampa's breweries are concentrated in the downtown, Seminole Heights and Tampa Heights areas.

  5. Beer column: Make your own scary good six-pack for Halloween

    Bars & Spirits

    Assembling the ideal Halloween six-pack is always a treat, though there is a trick: it gets expensive. If you don't mind dropping a few bucks on a mix-and-match, you can have a lot of fun. Why not make a story of it?
