Brew Bus building 'terminal and brewery'

The Brew Bus is on the move to Seminole Heights.

The Brew Bus is on the move to Seminole Heights.

In 2014, the Brew Bus consisted of four buses and were based solely out of Tampa.

Today, the local craft beer brewery has six buses and is spread across six cities.

The company's latest endeavor is planning a move to the Seminole Heights space once occupied by Florida Avenue Brewing Co. at 4101 N Florida Ave.

"It was a good time to move," said founder Anthony Derby. "Cigar City Brewery with their expansion, that's where our offices were before, we felt the need to get out of their hair and Florida Avenue Brewing Co. approached us about taking over the location."

The company will install $200,000 of renovations to the inside of the 3,500-square-foot tasting room.

Plans also include plenty of community seating, a brewery, a lounge area, a retail area and outside seating.

"The buses will start out of here now," Derby said. "We are referring to it as the Brew Bus terminal and brewery."

The move also means more beer since the Brew Bus will continue to work with Brew Hub — where it currently brews — as well as make beer at the new location.

"We will continue to do live music, host some networking events for organizations and invite distributors, as well as customer-friendly events," Derby said. "I am a big dog lover, so I am hoping to incorporate some Humane Society or other charitable events.

Renovations to the tasting room are slated to be done by mid February. Opening is still in the works. For more information visit, brewbususa.com.

  1. Craft beer of the week: Electric Chair Sour Shandy, Angry Chair Brewing

    Bars & Spirits

    Traditionally, a shandy, like its German cousin the radler, is a simple combination of beer and a soft drink, such as a citrus-flavored soda or fresh juice. These drinks are low-alcohol, fruity and highly refreshing, making them ideal candidates for summertime sipping.

    For most of June, there was precisely one song by a rock band in the top half of Billboard's Hot 100: Believer by Imagine Dragons.

  3. Bar review: Sample whiskey, vodka, rum, absinthe and more at Fish Hawk Spirits in Ybor

    Bars & Spirits

    While craft brewing has firmly entrenched itself in local drinking culture, craft distilling is still a very niche market. Part of this is due to outdated and arguably unfair distilling laws, and part of it is because successful distilling can often be a lot tougher and more time-consuming than brewing up a few batches …

    For $10, you can sample four of Fish Hawk Spirits’ fruit-infused vodkas, as well as its molasses-based rums, tangerine brandy and more. Old whiskey barrels lend a rustic vibe to the Ybor shop.

  5. ReliaQuest's benevolent hackers try to make companies more secure

    Corporate

    TAMPA — Their goal is to get in. Past a security desk, through a firewall, into a system they shouldn't have access to. Sometimes they'll look like a regular person in the lobby who innocently forgot their access badge. Most times they won't be seen at all, remotely and quietly prodding a company's systems from a …
