This was a very good restaurant with solid beer offerings. The location is excellent and would be a regular hangout spot for me if I lived in Tampa. Bartender was friendly and attentive and never left me thirsty. They had 8 of their beers on tap I think plus several other microbrews. The food is standard pubfare but is definitely tasty. Prices are about average. Their beer isn’t as good as Cigar City’s but their location and the fact that they serve food definitely makes this a great place to visit.

(Visited 07/2014): Tampa Bay Brewing is located off I-4 on E 8th Ave not too far outside of downtown in Ybor City. Street parking is pretty abundant in the surrounding blocks.

TBBC is in a pretty multi-level brick "Centro Ybor" building shared by a Movico. Walking in to the building you encounter an open-air exterior bar, then a doorway to the brewpub. Inside the brewpub it is relatively dark with table and booth seating and a bar along the right side. Brewing equipment is right in the dining area and there are a ton of club mugs hanging everywhere. Neon sign behind the bar, and a couple chalk boards listing the beers.

As for the beers, the list numbers 12, with 9 being of the year-round variety and the other 3 on the seasonal side of the board. On my visit the seasonals included an Amarillo SMASH, Tripel and Saison. The standard stuff is pretty typical of brewpubs like this, and they have a root beer too. A sampler of the beers is available, and they were all pretty average.

Service at the bar on a weekday afternoon was pretty good. The bartender was attentive and fairly knowledgeable about the beer menu.

I did not have any food on my visit.

Overall the quality (or uniqueness) of the beers here are not on par with Cigar City but this is a decent beer stop in Tampa.

Another asset of Tampa. Great layout and building. If you drink too much it is perfectly located next to a hotel or the courthouse. Your choice!. Beers are very good, but alas minimal.guest taps. Good food selection. Prices are r reasonable. Staff is friendly. What more could you ask?

Great brew pub. Great beer and a great atmosphere. The bartender billy is extremely knowledgable and is a true beer fan. They keep 12 of their own on tap with several from other local brewery's and two from aviator. This definitely a must in tampa.

Visited once more on January 25, 2014
Got a sample plate, didn’t eat this time around. Place was fairly packed, though it was the weekend of some festival. A bit slow service to the table this evening.

First visit
Visited for lunch January 21, 2011. Nice service, good food, well handled sampler tray. Got to chat with the brewer that also brought us some specials, had a good time.

Visited: 1-12-12 A: The place has a great brewpub vibe about it. They have a great sized indoor bar, plenty of tables around it and another exterior bar with plenty of seating and tables around it. A great layout for a place with good weather year round. Q: The three beers I had were outstanding and I had tasted several others that were really good. There average beer was better than most places best beer. S: The waitress was very friendly, knowledgeable about the beers, and was quick to replace a pint once it as emptied. S: They had a great selection of 7 in house regular taps, 2 speciality taps and an in house root beer. They featured a blonde, hefeweizen, porter, stout, red ale, APA, IPA, DIPA, & barleywine. A really great selection. F: The food was solid, split an order of bavarian beer pretzels, beer cheese soup, and ordered the Sausage and Rigatoni which was really good. Everyone in our group had something different and all loved their food. V: 5 people, several apps, many pints, under $100, great value. Overall, a really great place to visit when travelling to the area and especially when in Ybor City. Also, as a guy who went here with my two year old, the simple fact that they had a Family Bathroom was huge for my wife and I. Highly Recommended.
