Beer Week: All hail the 7venth Sun

On the last Friday night of Tampa Bay Beer Week, it seemed like beer lovers were making the circuit, hopping from event to event to sample local and other noteworthy craft beers.

Several groups spied at Rapp Brewing Co. in Seminole made their way to Copperheads Tap House in Safety Harbor where beer from 7venth Sun Brewing Co. was featured. Seats at the bar and the high-tops were full and the smack of the pool balls provided the night's rhythm.

Though the beers of the Dunedin brewery were featured, plenty of people were trying other brews.  We had a flight of four beers, among them 7venth Sun's FYI, an American pale ale; Cigar City Brewing's Guanabana Ale, a murky but silky fruit beer; a Ballast Point Sculpin Habanero, which got hotter as it warmed up, and our favorite of the four, a Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, that went down as smooth as, well, a fine bourbon. It's aged for six months and begs to be sipped. Perfect for an after-dinner drink or even a pre-meal aperitif.
