Oh wow, the Wazoo beerfest fundraiser at The Lowry Park Zoo in Tampa is expected to serve frothy libations to 5,ooo beer lovers this Saturday August 4th.  Proceeds support the zoo which is kind of a hidden gem of Tampa. 

The best part of Wazoo? The Little Giant Brewery will be pouring four of our artisanal selections for your pleasure.  

The lineup: BillaBock! Maibock, OverHead Peeler Porter, Mischievous Intent American-Belgo Pale, and Overlord Black IPA. Oh yeah I almost forgot, The Mischievous will be on hand-pulled dry-hopped cask. 

This Fest was named by USA Today a Top Ten American Beer Festival, so get there and have some fun with Little Giant! In fact, have a lot of fun-- almost too much for mortal beer lovers to mentally comprehend.

If you follow us on twitter @littlegiantbrew or Facebook just look for my tweet and check-in for the location of our table. GPS is a wonderful thing at a crazy wonderfully big BEERFEST!!!!!!

Hey There Beer Lovers

It's been a busy month of March in the neighborhood. Pittsburgh Pirates spring training has added a whole ton of excitement for sure. It kind of breaks my heart to sit in the stands drinking our friends at Yuengling's beer while The Little Giant Brewery is about 50 steps and a seven-foot wall away. Who knows what the future may bring though, the Craft Beer revolution may sweep over McKechnie Field soon enough.  Until then we can only hope.

Your brewer has been spending some quality time on the curb parking cars and spreading the Word of good beer to all passers-by.  Kind of fun, actually.  Pouting off missives about that wonderful frothy beverage that we all enjoy. Next spring will prove to be Too Much Fun at the brewery once we add some fan-friendly renovations.  Bringing together baseball and some good craft beer seems like a very natural thing to do.

Did I mention when we are going to open the doors? Seems like a popular and rhetorical question these days.  We're aiming for a mid-summer opening. As we all know, good things take time...

If you're in the neighborhood for a baseball game or just passing through make sure to pop in and check out our progress -- it's an ever-evolving brewery. If the door is open walk right in and make yourself known with a big shout out of "Little Giant Brewery Oye, Oye, Oye!!!" You'll be sure to get some service that way, indeed!
