Visited during a layover on a Thursday afternoon. Located in a big open part of the airport across from gate c44. 6 Cigar City beers were featured on draft including two beers that were advertised as being brewed on site. Taster available, though seemed to be just for the regular lineup beers. Food menu is fairly typical airport fare, with a bit of a Cuban flair. I didnít eat, but the food coming out seemed perfectly fine. They also had limited six packs to go, which is a very cool feature. I enjoyed my visit.

Ambiance is what you would expect from an airport terminal bar. staff was friendly, small selection, but two special beers on. Had the special airport beer which was pretty nice. Didnt eat. Would definitely stop again if in the tampa airport for whatever reason.

Visited on a return flight via AirTran in March 2013. Only accessible via Terminal C so youíll have to use one of the airlines in this terminal. About 5 or so Cigar City beers and one of their ciders at the time I was there, including the airport exclusive Tony Jannus Pale Ale. Taster set was available with the Tony Jannus and 3 of their regular brews, they also have one beer brewed at the airport brewpub. Food was good, had the cubano sandwich which was pretty solid. Bartender was pretty nice and attentive. Definitely recommend planning ahead and getting a flight into/out of Terminal C as this seemed like the best airport bar at TPA. Would be nice if they had a few more taps for other Cigar City offerings.

As an airport bar, this rates very high and it is a great place to stop and have a pint before getting on the plane. However, the big 4 + Tony Jannus are the only things you can rely on here. So sad given that Cigar Cityís forte are their small batch and experimental offerings. Prices are, of course, jacked up for the airport.

Best airport bar Iíve ever been to for craft beer. Selection isnít huge, but itís all quality Cigar City brews (obviously) some of which can be exclusive to the location. Food is simple cuban/mexican, and good quality for an airport restaurant. Service is always excellent. FYI this is in the Southwest terminal and I never miss a chance to stop by.

Granted itís an airport bar and 99% of them really, really suck. Still why would Cigar City lend their name to such an inferior experience. The servers didnít know a ton about the beer which was served in refridgerated glasses. They only have 6 of their beers on tap, including the exclusive tony jannus pale ale, plus a couple of BMCís. I ordered the soft pretzel sticks and they were very bland and lacked salt. it was just a very mediocre experience but at least you can get some craft beer, at hyper-inflated prices of course, at the airport.

Open for two months now. Located in a wide airy section of Airside C. Corner-shaped bar with seating for 20 people. Beers on tap included four CCB regulars, one seasonal, and airport exclusive Tony Jannus Pale Ale, as well as Stella Artois and Bud Light. Pints and samplers (of four beers). Also a selection of spirits, wine, and bottled beer. The food menu looked good, if a bit pricey: small plates, entrees, salads, soups, sandwiches, and desserts. There is a tiny (1.5 barrel) brew system, on which they produce the Tony Jannus Pale Ale. Apparently this is the only brewpub in a US airport. Very friendly staff, who were interested in discussing the beers. Good place to sample some of the CCB regulars.

The nicest looking food and beverage service place in the terminal. The brick structure really sets the tone. The food is expensive for Cuban food, but itís an airport, so this is to be expected. What was unexpected was how good my Cuban sandwich was. I was reluctant to order it, because itís an airport terminal and staffed by an airport contractor, but Iíll be darned if it wasnít one of the best Tampa-style Cuban sandwiches Iíve ever had. Thereís a whole lotta Joey Redner in the menu. The sandwich had more salami than most Tampa Cubans and I really enjoyed the Swiss cheese, ciabatta bread and huge pickle slices inside. The Virginia ham was a very nice touch as well. Plantain chips were a nice accompaniment. The beer selection isnít huge (Jai Alai, Maduro, Hotter Than Helles, Florida Cracker Wit), but the Tony Jannus Pale Ale was a real treat. Brewed on a small system right there in the airport, this is a pale ale that made my long layover in Tampa totally worth it. Itís also available only in the airport from what I hear.

Stopped in on a Monday as I was flying out of Tampa. They are operated by the airport and not the brewery. They have a nice selection of Cigar City beer if you donít have time to visit the brewery, but donít expect Barrel Aged Hunahpu. They have a brewery on site, and they even brew a beer exclusively on-site for the airport, Tony Jannus Pale Ale. The service was spot-on and they had a nice sampler of CCB alongside a Stella and a Bud Light tap. The place is very welcoming and kind of looks like a piece of Ybor City in the airport. A nice novelty overall, but at airport prices. A nice place to enjoy my last CCB beer before a trip.
