Craft Beer in Tampa Bay

  1. Bar review: Cueni Brewing Co. joins Dunedin's beer haven

    Bars & Spirits

    First there was Dunedin Brewery, which paved the way for all Florida craft breweries when it opened in the mid '90s. It took 17 years for a neighbor to arrive: 7venth Sun Brewing. In the past year, Dunedin had seen the opening of House of Beer Brewing, Woodwright Brewing.

    Cueni Brewing Co. in Dunedin is right off the Pinellas Trail.
  2. Craft beer tasting: The great winter roundup of 2016

    It's that time of year again, when friends get together and sample a dozen or so seasonal releases, taking notes on each along the way. Or maybe that's just at my house.

  3. Bar review: Arkane Aleworks in Largo is bringing the beer

    Bars & Spirits

    Festival brewery is a term that I use to describe breweries in progress: reliably spotted working the local beer fest circuit, decked out with vinyl banners, cool jockey boxes with custom tap handles, clever beer names and concepts and professionally printed apparel boasting convincing logos.

    There’s room for 28 beers on the tap wall at Arkane, and a little over half are typically pouring — impressive for a new brewery.

  4. Craft beer drinkers, do you think much about drunk driving?

    Bars & Spirits

    Drinking and driving is something that we all think we take seriously. Right? Kind of?

    Liquor or beer — it’s alcohol.
  5. Beer column: Cool off with some fine bay area craft lagers

    Bars & Spirits

    It's brutally hot out, and that calls for extra-refreshing beer. More often than not, my go-to is a nice cold lager.
