In the outskirts of Downtown Tamps, tucked away in warehouse/office park is Tampa Beer Works. Inside the tiny tap room are a few tables, a decent sized bar, and college football playing on TV.

Even though I’ve proven to be trash at keeping up with the blog monthly, with the help of Untappd (KitWill if you looking for a playa) I’ve been able to track beers over the past few months.

Even though we melted to death and realized how old and tattered we all are, we still managed to have fun. Awesome food, good […]Read More “It’s broken! My arm is broken!”
I took an after work adventure to 5 Seasons Brewery to sample some beers and sit with the Brewmaster Crawford Moran. Forgive my lack of description. It was my first “sit down” with a Brewmaster, so I was free-baling it (Sorry mom). #83 IPA (ABV 7%) Pretty good! Hoppy, with small hints of citrus taste. Thumbs […]Read More I declare a Thumb War!
