Small warehouse in an industrial stripmall setting with decent parking. Tall bar up front and some tables, with expansion space next door and a small area outside. Brewing system in the back is tiny, with plastic fermenters - and despite the system limitations they make delicious beers. My favorites were the revivavals of old German styles - a lichtenhainer! A broyhan - I’ll have to look that one up. No food - focus is 100% on the beers. Very friendly very knowledgeable staff. A must visit.
This was the third stop on the bus tour after 7venth Sun and Luekens. Wow, they have a lot of taps. 20 taps going with one changing out while we were there. They did free tasters for all of us, which I thought was insane considering it’s a bus full of tickers, but they happily poured them. I did try all of them. I think my favorite of the bunch was the peanut butter beer. Lots of different styles to pick from, some interesting styles present. Most were pretty good though, so no complaints here. The tasting room is not overly decorated though he does have the RateBeer Best Of plaque showing proudly. Next door in the brewery there is some more space with some benches and tables. I’m glad we got to see this place and I would definitely come back on a subsequent trip to Tampa.
Tiny place in a strip commercial park with indoor and outdoor/garage seating. Service is good with a very casual attitude. Selection is 20 of their own beers, which are pretty varied. Prices are pretty good, especially at happy hour. Overall a good place to go, as they have tasters which can put you on the path to their better beers.
This was high on my visit list for the Gose. Nice suburban space, easy parking. Simple ambiance, bar in front with a tap board over the top, a few tables as well. 20 Taps running when I was there, and when one blew they put on something else immediately. Pretty wide selection of styles to choose from as well. They do tasters (you pick) in 4, 6, or 9 beer sizes, for reasonable prices ($10 for six). Server (one of the Rapp’s) was super friendly and knew her beer. Beer was solid. Well worth the visit.
Visited during RBWG 2015. Well, this place is a ticker’s paradise, that’s for sure. They had 20+ beers on tap, and a few kicked and rotated during our visit. The range of styles here is impressive; you’ll get everything from gose to weizenbock to barrel-aged barley wine. The quality level is generally above average, but there are definitely some highlights, such as the gose. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The pricing excellent. The ambiance is low key - this place is a pretty typical industrial brewery taproom. If you’re a beer geek you should definitely make your way to this brewery taproom.
Standard industrial park brewery tap room. Pretty small, no-frills interior. It’s amazing that these guys are turning out beer of such quality despite the limitations of their system (plastic fermenters etc.). The tap room is a ticker’s dream. I counted 20 house beers covering a pretty broad range of styles. Rapp’s gose seems to get chins wagging the most, but don’t overlook the other stuff they’re making here. Prices are totally reasonable, service was cheerful. A recommended place.
Visited on January 19, 2014. Free WiFi available. A bit hard to find, you don’t see if from the main road, but need to turn down at the correct spot. Parking available just outside. We arrived 40 minutes before closing, but were still still allowed to order a 9 beer flight. Nice fast friendly knowledgeable service. A place I’d gladly go back to. Fairly big selection of beers.
A relatively small taproom, minimalist decoration in an unexpected area. Seemingly popular, it was crowded during our visit and difficult to get good service. Vast tap list with several styles being well executed and a few being top notch. Definitely worth a visit when in the area as their beers do not travel as much as they should. You would not come here for anything but the beer, but beer is what they excel at.
Small brewery and Tap room in an industrial estate in Seminole. Somehow they have 20 of their own beers on tap and each of a different style. Pretty much everything was of a very high quality. The gose and lichtenheiner were particularly delicious. They do 4 or 6 sampler trays which is a must with all this beer on draft. Greg even came over and chatted to us for while and gave us some free beer for "feedback". Pretty amazing all-round. A must-visit when in the Tampa area.
