Smart location. I’ve been here on a few occasions, most recently for a Cigar City event. Bar is clean and new. Big enough to move around in and relax even on a crowded night. The patio is a great addition. They have a great tap list always and tons of bottles. I think they sell to-go’s as well. Knowledgeable staff who know a thing or two about beer and their drafts show it. No food, but Grillsmith next door will take orders and deliver to the bar. Definitely a place to check out in north Tampa-ish area.
This place is great!!! I didn’t count the taps or bottles but the beer menu was HUGE! I stopped for the Cigar City Beer and stayed for the kareoke and selection of cigars (this is not a kareoke joint, it was the tuesday night thing). The wait staff was phenominal, I went to sing and my 1/2 smoked cigar was gone when I got back...The waitress gave me a new one without question. Also, they do not have food but a waiter from the place next door comes around every 10 minutes or so to take orders (that food was really good but a bit pricy).
Unbelievable selection of beer that is constantly being updated and served by a usually knowledgeable staff. Great atmosphere too, but it does get crowded on weekends. A handful of flat screen TV’s usually showing games & trivia. Live music is often featured on the small stage.
No food, but you can order from any of the nearby restaurants that deliver.
Amplia seleccion de cervezas en un local con ambiente y musica en directo.Aunque no es restaurante ,puedes pedir la comida a los restaurantes que lo rodean,con lo cual tienes una gran variedad de comida.
generally a fantastic draft and bottle selection. good service. they only have pretzels on weekends, but they are sweet and tasty. indoor and outdoor seating. can get pretty crowded on weekends and special evants...... but hell, that can be fun after a few.
prices are average for a beer bar in my opinion.
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.
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.

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.
