Another day, another destiny. We are just over 24 hours from the official kick-off of the 2017 Tampa Bay Beer Week, and another opportunity to show what an amazing beer community this area has become. From the first drops pours at The Ultimate Brewer to the last head-pounding sighs at Hangover Day at 7venth Sun, beer lovers will know they have participated in something special.
Still not sure what do do during the week? Let’s try a few of these on for size…
European Rare Beer and Cheese Paring
Mr. Dunderbak’s, Tampa
Wednesday, March 8th – 7pm
$35 per person, call for Tickets 977-4104
For over 40 years, Mr. Dunderbak’s has been doing beer culture right, and long before it was cool. With an incredible selection of European beers, fantastic German food, and now their very own brewery, this Tampa stalwart never fails to impress. This cheese and beer tasting will be no exception. The very limited number of attendees will get to sample seven exclusive and unique beers from Europe paired with cheese from their corresponding region. Don’t expect barrel-aged stouts or “whalez, brah”. Expect an evening filled with Cantillon, Drie Fonteinen, J.W Lees, Schorschbrau, Schlenkerla, and more. And maybe a house-brewed Dunderbrau sample as well.

TBBW Beer Dinner
Farm Table Kitchen, Locale Market, St. Petersburg
March 9th, 6:30pm
Tickets $45 per person
I love beer dinners. Probably my favorite type of event to attend. So I am really excited about the collaboration between Barley Mow Brewing, Motorworks Brewing, St. Pete Brewing and Cigar City Brewing with Chef Jeffrey Hileman and Farm Table Kitchen at Locale Market in Saint Petersburg. They are bringing you a 4 course beer pairing dinner in honor of Tampa Bay Beer Week. Each course will be paired to a beer from each of the four breweries, celebrating the uniqueness of the Tampa Bay brewery scene.
I am counting down the hours now…
One more dawn….
One more day…
One day more!
