Great addition to the Tampa Bay beer scene. Knowledgeable staff, good selection of beers, proper glassware and nice bottle selection. They have bathroom tile behind the taps that looks rather strange, its hard to just glance up and figure out whats on tap. There are menus that float around the bar sometimes there hard to find however.
Went here the night before Hunahpu’s Day after Datz. I was blown away by them not being packed on a Friday night. Very easy to get a beer from a bartender and the selection was pretty good. The pricing was spotty on bottles. Some were really good deals while others were expensive. Drafts were on point price wise. I liked that they had darts and pool. Not many good beer bars have good bar games. We all really enjoyed ourselves.
Great place. It has a large bar running the length of the place, as well as many sofa’s and chairs placed around coffee tables throughout. Dart boards are available also.
Large and very niceTap selection and many bottles, all micro no macro(except for I think Bud light in the bottle) . Knowledgeable and friendly staff who are always willing to discuss the beers provide samples etc.
It is a little difficult to find, as it is really on Madison even though it is a Kennedy address. If you’re staying Downtown, Channelside or at Ybor you can just jump on a trolley to take right to it.
Well worth a stop if in Tampa.
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. Lot’s of good bottles. Parking can be rough, but that’s 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. It’s 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. I’m 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 it’s sparse and undecorated, I hope it’s just unfinished. I guess I didn’t look hard enough for a tap list because I didn’t 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. Didn’t get a chance to talk to the bartender, she was cute and able to pour beer which is all that’s really necessary IMO. Not sure yet how this place will turn out, we’ll see.
