About Us

Tampa Bay Brew News. The name says it all.

We are just a bunch of people who really like beer, and love our local community. Learn more about our contributors: John Tesmer, Ryan Hultstrand, Robb Larson, and Jonathon Valo.

We’ll journal all the news and reviews that are fit to print about Tampa’s beer scene, from up and coming breweries to local watering holes and everything in between. This blog is not about beer reviews, but rather about the people, politics, and shenanigans behind the beer business in Tampa Bay.

If it starts with yeast, water, malted grains, and hops: it’s fair game.
