I’ve never considered myself a “beer person,” but Tampa Bay is so full of craft breweries that I’ve changed my mind. Cigar City Brewing, Coppertail, Six Ten, the list goes on and on, and Adam and I are on our way through trying out all of them. During this little quest of ours, I’m taking photos of our flights, pints, cans, and bottles. Plot twist: they’ve all been shot on an iPhone. Thank you, portrait mode.

The Brass Tap/Carrollwood Brewing Company

Carrollwood Brewing

Favorite Brew: Dem Nutz Porter

Perks: Because it’s also a Brass Tap, you can get almost anything there. Great place to watch a game and have a meal with your beer. Oh, plus Thursdays from 8pm-close are Ladies’ Night, and women get drinks half off.
