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.
Super tap list and a great bottle list this is a great stop in the Tampa area. I really liked I was able to find some new beers that I had never seen before. Loved the place.

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.
Stopped in with Wilkes the Sunday after Hunahpu when it was mostly empty. Has a nice long bar area and felt like a big space - but imagine it’s a far different experience with crowds at night. The tap list was pretty exciting for me as I hadn’t been in Florida for a while - got several new 7venth Sun and Cycle ticks.
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. I’m sure the beer geek owners will keep bringing in quality stuff.
