The Girlfriend and I are most likely moving to St. Pete/Tampa in August. I don’t know anyone in the city, so I’ll be counting on you guys to make me feel welcome. Is there a Facebook group for Tampa beer lovers?

Not sure of a facebook group but weekly tastings usualy at cigar city.

I’m fairly new to the area too and would love to check out one of the tastings. I’ve been keeping an eye on this weeks post.

The local forum is where it’s at. I go to less tastings these days, but the group is still super active. Welcome ... both of you.

First off, welcome to Tampa! This is definitely a burgeoning craft beer scene, and this is a great time to love beer in Tampa. There is no FB group (yet), but we do use these RB forums to talk about stuff.


This week’s tasting kind of fell off, but we should hopefully be going on again next week. Anyone from RB is welcome at the tastings, it’s just a bottle share. We usually meet at Cigar City, but we move to other spots periodically like Brass Tap Wesley Chapel, 7venth Sun in Dunedin, and someone’s house if anyone is up for hosting that week.

Im also new to the Tampa area (Actually over in Palm Harbor). Just started a new job and dont know a whole lot of people here. I’d be interested in attending a bottle share too. I’m 24 by the way, if that matters.

All ages (over 21) are welcome. Welcome to the Tampa Bay area guys! I think we should try to get a tasting together for Thursday. I am definitely out on Tuesday.

Thursday this week would be awesome. I’ve got some good stuff to share right now too.

What’s a good restaurant, not too expensive, in the St. Pete area that will have some decent vegetarian options? I’ll be looking for a Sunday night dinner, so I can’t go to Peg’s, and that Bayou place doesn’t have a single vegetarian menu item.

Good beer is a plus, but not required.

Cajun Cafe has vegetarian options. Maybe mark will chime in with something since hes a vegetarian.

I’m not too sure about the Cajun cafe, I looked at the menu on the website, and even their rice has sausage in it.
