A-Inside it is a nice beer bar with friendly folks enjoying good beer. Nothing that knocks your socks off, but it is a good atmosphere.
Q-The quality of the tap selection is excellent. The only thing that keeps this from being a 5 is the limited # of taps. I'd expect the brewery to have a few more of their selections offered at their own establishment. But what they do offer is quality.
S-I visited twice during a 5 day stay in Tampa and both times found the service to be friendly, courteous and prompt even when the place was busy.
S-As I stated earlier, I really hoped the tap selection would have been greater, but the bottle selection is disappointing to be honest. During my visit earlier this week they only had Guava Groove, Humidor IS, Humidor IPA and Winter Warmer in 750s and Jai Alai & Maduro in sixers. I really think they could improve here.
V-Hey, good beer isn't cheap. The tap prices are in line with what I've seen elsewhere, but as is usually the case, the bottle prices are higher at the brewery than elsewhere. So, unless they have something at the brewery that is really hard to find, you're better off going around the corner (literally) to Total Wine or Whole Foods to make your bottle purchases. Growler prices are very reasonable.
Overall, I really enjoyed my visits here. If they'd increase their offerings on tap and in the bottle it would take this already excellent brewery up another notch.

Very chill, almost rec room like atmosphere. Quality selection of both year round offerings and more unique brews, all priced very reasonably. Glad to see Berliner Weiss offered with the traditional syrup as an option! Fun, interactive tour that nets you both a beer and a take home glass for $5. Overall, a great experience from a world class brewery.

First visit to the brewery, was very impressed with the way I was treated by the staff.
Great atmosphere, I was impressed by the current what's on tap display.
Took the tour, was very impressed by the knowledge and enthusiasm of our guide.
Sampled several unique beers that could not be found outside of the tasting room.
It was well worth the trip, looking forward to my next visit.

The place looks amazing and admittedly much bigger than it looks from the outside. Large LCD screen with beer tap list are on display above the bar, which boast not only the selection, but also the styles, ABV and whether or not growlers are available for each beer. They also offer guest taps for consumption. The staff is very friendly and will recommend beers according to your tastes. They have a couple of coolers with their standard fare in them along with brewery only or limited distribution cans and bottles available for purchase along with glassware and other assorted merch. Would definitely go again and again and again... you get the point!

I love going out to visit this brewery. The tasting room has been recently enlarged, with a new bar and more beers on tap. They have also added some guest taps for other local breweries. The beers are all quality stuff with some truly excellent brews. The staff is friendly and informative. I like the tour. Five dollars for a trip through the brewery, a pint of beer, and a pint glass to take home. Tuesdays they have a special beer or treatment that can be bought in a growler in addition to the regular growler fills they do. Very nice place to go and have a few beers.

I've been there multiple times and always had a great time. Hunahpu's day this year was GREAT can't wait till next year! Always have to gat the growlers filled for the trip home. Pick up a couple special releases and a lot of drinks on draft. An maybe even a good Madero infused cigar. So I don't leave there without spending a good chunk of change

One of my favorite road trips in the area. The tasting room is warm and welcoming. Top notch service from a very friendly knowledgeable staff that won't lead you astray. Great locals and regulars that love to talk about beer and spark up a conversation. Don't miss out on a grower of any of their special treatments. They are mad scientist. If you can make it to Hunapuh Day take advantage. Though sometimes chaotic the taplist is astounding and reaches cross country. The treasured Hunahpu is a must and an annual heavyweight to be savoured.

Great place, the expansion made it even better. It seems that they have new and different beers everytime i go with variations of their popular beers which are more often than not better than the original. The only thing it needs is some more/better outside seating, other than that it's perfect.

A. Laid back, busy but not too busy to get a beer. Nice people most of the time. Good beer culture.
Q I think this answers itself. Best beer ever. By far the vest brewery I know.
S great, they always know your name, super nice, the gal bartenders are very good looking. They all know their beer, and are super nice and fun.
S awesome, they always have something new, exciting, limited and delicious available. There are usually 30 beers on tap, plus another five guest brewery taps. Several available for growlers. Bottle selection is always good too.
Good value for all things available.
This place also rocks because they leave a private room available for free booking. You can do bottle shares in it from any brewery. You can also bring any bottle not for sale into the brewery to drink. I recommend you share with the bartenders.

First stop in Tampa on a recent mini vacation visit...its very close to the airport, and made for a relaxing spot to unwind a bit from the usual airport stress.
Large bar and growler fill area up front, with ample options to go in a couple of refrigerators. And a larger/longer bar area towards the rear. Friendly staff, comfortable and low key athmosphere, tons of CC options on tap, bottle, cans and growler fills. Industrial area and feel to the brewery.
No real food offered. Bring some in or order for delivery when you get there. Never understand why places like this dont have at least something decent to eat or partner with a vendor/food truck.
Well worth a visit to stock up on and enjoy the tasty CC beers.
