Tampa Bay Brewing Company
1600 East 8th Ave, Tampa, FL 33605
The Tampa Bay Brewing Company first began creating its in-house batches of craft ale in 1995, driven by a perceived local demand for bespoke beers. The demand was real, and today TBBC is one of the most successful local microbrews in the city, offering a whopping eight regular labels and countless seasonal tipples to boot. Under the guiding hand of brewing master David Doble, the menu touts the likes of the uber-hoppy Old Elephant Foot IPA (a real local chart-topper) and the Iron Rat Imperial Stout, with its brooding dark color and intense body. There are currently two tap houses open under the Bay Brewing name, in Ybor City and Westchase.
