Nice location in the trendy New Tampa area.
Selection had pretty much same beers available across Tampa or at beer stores, many craft beers.
Had great service, and even some free food to go along with the event that was going on.
Place was just too crowded for my taste, craft crowd mixes with the corona beer pounders. I’ll settle for a quieter environment.
It’s a good drive up there for anyone living in south Tampa and Oldsmar area.
This is kind of a hip place and the only place for miles around where you can consistently get some of the best beers in the FL market on tap. The loud music and approachable fruit beers really bring the people in and pay the bills. This place is crazy rammed Friday and Saturday nights. In doing this it appears they have a solid sustainable business model even if it isn’t perfectly aligned with what the visiting beer geek is looking for. So you won’t be able to have typical casual conversation easily but you will nevertheless enjoy yourself. Each time I’ve been there I’ve marveled at the extensive tap and bottle list and have always found something tasty to try.
Where to start! The location is very interesting as its in a food and store district made to look like a rustic downtown. Although they don’t have food they allow stuff to be brought in. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable of the awesome selection of beer. The atmosphere is relaxing. There is plenty of indoor and patio seating. They are also beer rating friendly since two Tampa Tastings were held there while I was in town. They also have a special CCB on tap every last wed of the month. Well worth the time so get out to Wesley Chapel during your visit to Tampa.

Rerate from 1 Sept 2011: Great beer bar in an upscale area of New (North) Tampa. By day it is a sometimes crowded place with great taps and good bottles. They get some interesting and somewhat rare drafts and bottles from time to time. Whoever orders the beer knows what he is doing. They always seem to have Cigar City and local beers on draft. The place gets a bit loud after dark, especially with live music and DJs. During those times the only semi-quiet place is the patio. They also feature a different brewery each month with specials and themed nights. This place is quickly becoming a prime beer bar in the Tampa Scene. Prices can be a bit high on bottles, but they do feature draft specials and draft discounts from time to time.

I have been visiting this beer bar off and on since opening night. Things have really improved over the past 6 months. Ryan is bringing in some of the best beer in the Tampa area, some just as rare as those that Tony at OTH is able to secure. Nice location near the main entrance, food available from a few local restaurants (servers roam the tables asking if patrons want to order from their restaurant), and a great rotating list of beers to choose from--not to mention an impressive bottle selection as well. Looks like this beer bar is becoming the Oldsmar Tap House East for those of us living miles and miles from OTH.

The ambiance is very good. The service was an issue for me in when they first opened but I will say that things have improved a bit. The selection is worth raving about. They have plenty to keep any beer geek happy although they never seem to have all the items on their beer menu. If you want food you will have to order out but that is easy to do. The prices are a little high. Overall a nice beer bar that I enjoy but the prices are the not best.
The owners did a great job constructing a bar that is assuredly going to be a popular location for many years to come. An attractive ambiance, with several TV’s if you are looking for a place to go watch sports and sample great beers. No food. A large bottle and 40-tap selection, nothing super out of the ordinary for a “Mega Beer-Geek” but really nice and well rounded. However, for the average beer drinker, this is almost another planet, but if you are reading this, you’re not the average beer drinker. Of course staff education is paramount, especially in a setting where the retailer is serving a gourmet product that need be accompanied with familiarity; but I imagine that product knowledge will come in time. Overall, this is a wonderful addition to the Wesley Chapel area, and I know it will help broaden the minds and palates of countless people. – A wonderful thing indeed!
This is a great place to try different beers, though I don’t care for the location as it gets congested pretty quickly. I will say though it is convenient and they have some unique pours throughout the year.
Located in The Shops of Wiregrass. Nice clean, new place. Beer selection is pretty good for the area, defenitely geared more to the average beer drinker and less to the beer geek. No food but you can order from next door. I was there for a special event and it was packed and it’s a pretty small place. Prices were pretty high.
