Everyone loves a good glass of beer with dinner and when you think of living in Tampa, FL the first thing that comes to mind is probably beaches and vacation. However, take it from us locals who know that it is also a hotspot for craft breweries. We understand that it can be hard to find the right brew and buying booze at a restaurant can be expensive. You may not realize, though, that there are a ton of options in the neighborhood of your Tampa furnished apartment where you can bring home your own booze to enjoy with dinner. What’s better than a place where you can create your own menu in a fabulous fully equipped kitchen and has a lenient BYOB policy? To help you out, we have put together a list of our favorite breweries in the bay area to try while in your Tampa furnished apartment from Cornerstone.
Angry Chair Brewing
Located in the historic Seminole Heights, Angry Chair Brewing combines unique blends to form ever evolving tasteful projects. They also have a tasting room where you can find your favorite beer, seasonal, or drafts from other Florida breweries and take a growler to go. I absolutely love their modern industrial décor and funky atmosphere not to mention they are dog friendly! Be sure to try the Fudge Bucket and Handcuffed in the Backseat.
Coppertail Brewing Company
Coppertail Brewing Company is without a doubt my new favorite brewery! Located about a mile east of Channelside across from IKEA they always have fun on tap. The Wheat Stroke is good but I highly recommend their tripel Unholy. At a whopping 9% you will only need a few to get the night going. Coppertail is also a great place to hang out and catch up with friends and if you get the munchies there is usually a really tasty food truck right outside the front doors.
Cigar City Brewing
Cigar City is perhaps the most well known brewery in Tampa known mainly for their Jai Alai IPA, Maduro Brown Ale, and delicious concoction called Cubano-Style Espresso Brown Ale. Their brews tend to be traditional beer styles with a mixture of spices and fruit. Can’t decide which one you like best? Take a tour of the brewery and stop by their tasting room which always has regular offerings, plus small batch brews that are in the testing phase.
Brew Bus Tampa
You may know the Brew Bus for their craft brewery tours throughout Tampa and St. Pete but they make the best blueberry wheat ale called You’re My Boy Blue. If you stop by their main location near Westshore you can pick it up by the 6-pack or you can just enjoy one of their many local tours where you get two free beers on the bus.
Even though Yuengling is “America’s Oldest Brewery”, in Tampa you can tour the brewery’s new beer perfecting technology and taste for yourself the deliciousness in their biergarten. Tours at their Tampa facility are free and open to the public and typically last an hour and a half just remember to wear completely closed shoes. Tour schedule is available on their website.
These are just a few of the many craft breweries in Tampa; I mean we aren’t nicknamed the brewery bay for no reason. Pick up your favorite beers and head back to your Tampa furnished apartment by Cornerstone and enjoy a nice relaxing evening in.
