Atmospherically dull but is brightly lit so conducive to rating beers. A decent little drinking establishment with a good selection of taps and bottles. Friendly. Local crowd is pretty mellow. A bit underwhelming to me in general.

Oldsmar Tap House is located on State Street off Tampa Road. Street parking is plentiful down the whole block.

The interior opens to some booths and tables, and the L-shaped bar is on the right side. There is a chalk board behind the bar listing the available beers, with the taps right under it, plus a couple other draught stations elsewhere.

There are around 40 beers on tap, including several from the region from brewers like Brew Bus, Dunedin, Big Storm and Cigar City. Other craft brewers like Stone, Dogfish Head and Avery are represented too, as are a couple imports. Many bottles as well again from domestic craft breweries and imports.

Service on a slow weekday evening at the bar was good. The bartenders were attentive and conversational about beer. I learned this place has recently changed ownership, and had changed names from then back to Oldsmar Tap House. The folks running the place acknowledged getting the bar to a respectable level of craft beer representation.

Food is not served here but you can order in from several nearby restaurants.

Overall I am bummed I never made it here on previous trips to Orlando/Tampa as I had heard great things from when Tony ran it. However despite some shortcomings this place is worth checking out.

Decent little place. They have a nice beer list. Atmosphere is a bit sterile, though. It definitely needs to be scuffed up a bit. Closes early. I’d go back.

Visited during November, 2009. Easy to locate with good parking all around. Wooden bar on the right with tables on the left. 30+ taps and beer coolers gave good selection. Tony was behind the bar and was very freindly and knowledgable of beers. Food is pub food selection of sandwichs and a cheese plate. Very good selection of beers and freindly people. Very good alternative to vacation location chains.

A beautiful bar located in Oldsmar, kind of a retirement locality. Super friendly service from owner, who ensures good quality beers. 36 beers on tap, all good quality. Ratebeer friendly, limited menu, but they allow food from nearby restaurants (sushi place next door). Plenty of parking. A great gem in Tampa.

Visited on February 1, 2011. Cool place, nice crew that knows what they’re doing. Very big number of taps to select from, I didn’t even check the bottles. Nice sausage plate for nibbling. Plenty of samples this night too. I could see me going there often if I lived closer than in Sweden for sure. Only down side was the rather dimmed lighting inside.

Damn fine tap list. Nice glassware for the most part. Servers were really nice too. Wish they had more(any) cigar city brews on tap.

Be warned. This is no longer the place the owner Tony made great a few years back. Not nearly worth the visit unless you’re driving right by and thirsty.

This place needs to be split into two place ratings since it clearly sucks as compared to when Tony owned it.

Rating from when Tony ran things: 5 / 9 / 13 / 6 / 8 / 18.
This is by far the best beer bar I’ve been to in FL (I haven’t had the pleasure of visiting Redlight though). The owner Tony does a great job filling his tap list and bottle list with very unique offerings. At times he’ll have stuff on tap that no one else in the southeast will have. He’s pretty much open to trying just about any brew this area’s distributors can deliver (Eisbocks on tap – yes, Schlenkerla Helles on tap – yes, Barrel Aged Terrapin Rye Squared on tap – yes). So suggestions from beer geeks are well received. He has pretty much created this place with us geeks in mind.

The Pub to go to in the Tpa area. No TV, no smoke, the best service and Tony’s service and friendliness cannot be matched. Never got bored going there, always find people to talk to. Beer choice for all beer nerds. update Aug 09. Just a lot of rare stuff came in which is always nice to see. My only downside is the Shipyard distri line that is just too much. The bottle choice has also gotten very scant. I am still enjoying the place a lot. Tony is a good man who has done a lot for the local beer scene and this place definitely deserves a lot more attention by locals.

Établissement visité le vendredi 13 mars vers 20h30. Ambiance: Petit pub très bruyant perdu dans un quartier résidentiel. Présence d’un long bar en bois. Musique rock assez forte. Service: J’ai du aller commander ma bière au bar car personne ne venait pendre notre commande. Au bar ce fut sec et rapide comme service. Sélection: Une trentaine de fût de bière belges et de micro américaines. (130e rating d’établissement)
