Craft Beer in Tampa Bay

  1. Local craft beer of the week: 1888 Russian Imperial Stout at Pinellas Ale Works

    Bars & Spirits

    Some local breweries maintain such a dominant presence in particular style categories that it's easy to forget there are others out there. For example, when imperial stouts come up, who doesn't automatically think Cigar City, Cycle and Angry Chair?

    Summer may be a month away, but Tampa Bay Brewing Co. got a big head start last week, releasing its annual Last Days of Summer seasonal brew, which typically comes out sometime around late August.

    Almost a year to the day after Flying Boat Brewing Co. broke ground on its Woodlawn Oaks facility and tasting room, the St. Petersburg brewery officially opened its doors for business last week.

    Flying Boat Brewery is newly opened in St. Petersburg. Its name is a reference to the aircraft of Tony Jannus, who piloted the world’s first scheduled airline flight, between downtown St. Petersburg and Tampa in 1914.
