A great bar with owners who have passion for beer. The staff is informative and fun, plus it is one of the best draft and bottle selections on the west coast of Florida. You canorder food into the spot and there are a number of hard to find brews on the always changing taps. Beer lovers...finally a bar in the area that GETS IT. Also, they really price items very fairly!

Upscale-ish looking place that always has a nice tap selection. The owners are SUPER cool folks who are themselves beer geeks. Can fill up without getting too crowded. Popcorn machine for the munchies. Decent wine selection as well. Lotís of good bottles. Parking can be rough, but thatís my only complaint. Nice little courtyard area to get some fresh air. Great place to hang out and they support local!

Highly accessible location in the channel district. Itís a little tucked away, and parking may be a little limited during a party or busy night, but the service is great and the varied selection always offers something of interest.

Went here to meet up with the Tampa crew and had a blast. Very casual vibe more of a lounge than your typical bar with comfy couches to sit on. Was treated great by the owners and the tampa crew. Nice amount of taps, although we were cracking bottles. I hope to meet up with the tampa crew here again in the future. Iím sure the beer geek owners will keep bringing in quality stuff.

Wow, what can I say? James and Susan (and partners) have put together a great place to have a craft beer. I love the comfy couch seating and modern like living room feel. James and Susan are always seeking out new tap craft offerings, hosting beer events and going above and beyond to make the beer geek feel happy and most welcome. Keep it up. I have enjoyed every visit and look forward to the next.

Nice new place in downtown Tampa. If you have not been in a while, this place has grown much better. They have TVs, but they are not obtrusive, they have pool tables, but they do not detract from the conversation. They have some of the coolest taps around, and the service is very easygoing, yet they are pretty on the spot with the pours, and the pours are generous as well. They host several events, brewery nights, etc through any month. I am very anxious to see this new place grow.

New Tampa beer bar in Channelside. You really have to be looking for this place, it is very difficult to find. The only real parking is in the adjacent garage which is only free for 2 hours. Great space with lots of potential but either unfinished or meant to have a neo-modern minimalist vibe itís sparse and undecorated, I hope itís just unfinished. I guess I didnít look hard enough for a tap list because I didnít see one anywhere, no tap board I had to pick from the tap handles. 40 or so taps, lots of good stuff, nothing crazy, they sell wine too. Didnít get a chance to talk to the bartender, she was cute and able to pour beer which is all thatís really necessary IMO. Not sure yet how this place will turn out, weíll see.

New place, looks unfinished. No decorations at all, just a ton of taps (40) and 2 fridges with 39 bottles. Beer list did not mention tasting portions, so unfortunately I discovered that after I had had two pints. List included a handful of decent local stuff from Cigar City, Saint Somewhere and Dunedin. Non-smoking. No food. Pool tables and darts. Too crowded and noisy to strike up a conversation with the staff, but I liked it enough to want to go back and do that. Worth keeping an eye on, but needs some atmosphere.

New beer bar in Downtown/Channelside district in Grand Central. Opened March 20th, 2010. 40 taps/60 bottles. Corner space on bottom level. Some finishing left to do (TVís, wall art, etc). Nice feel with adequate space at the bar, high tops, low tops, and couches/chairs. Darts and pool table. Package area on side of bar. Broad selection of drafts for most tastes (they left out the macro swill lovers LOL). Owners are dedicated to Tampa beer scene. Rating will only go up!
