This weekend is the beginning of something huge, Tampa Bay Beer Week(www.Tampabaybeerweek.com)! I believe the number of craft beer-related events taking place is around 250?! Awesome!
It all starts this weekend with one of my favorite events of the year, The Florida Brewers Guild Festival. It's the only place where all the Florida Brewers Guild breweries get together for a great & epic afternoon of imbibing and inevitable weirdness. The event takes place Saturday, March 2 from 2-6pm at Centennial Park in Ybor City. Centennial Park is just a couple blocks east of the normal venue and should offer a little more room for everybody.
Little Giant will be there with a few frothy selections of exceptional quality: Billabock Maibock, Overlord Black IPA, and Overhead Peeler Porter.
Come on down if you have the chance, more info at Floridabrewersguild.org.
IN OTHER, ULTIMATELY MORE IMPORTANT NEWS,
The LittleGiant Brewery Has A Permanent Home!
Having wandered the earth for what seems like generations we have settled into a 5700 square foot building that is aching to be rehabilitated from a school for wayward youth(coincidentally, I used to teach there) into a beer salon for confused & wayward adults(Oh wow! I get to teach about beer now!).
Stay tuned as we progress, and feel free to bring a wrecking bar over.
The building of this brewery has been a journey for sure, both personal and professional, and I'm happy that you all are along for the ride. This brewery has got soul, baby!
Come up to Ybor tomorrow and drink beer!
