You will find a number of good friends at the Tampa Bay Brewing Company in Ybor City. My bride and I had a One Night Stand at the TBBC. To clarify, we each had a pint, or two or so, of this pleasant tasting 5% pale ale with a late lunch (or early dinner) yesterday before the WMNF Tropical Heatwave kicked off.
We have been enjoying the TBBC for several years. Their in-house crafted beers are excellent. The menu selections, while not super fantastic, are a few steps above typical pub fare. Especially notable is the curry mussels with broth and noodles. I have enjoyed those mussels twice now and they are consistently good. My only suggestion is that they should be served with a side of crusty Cuban bread for sopping, and maybe a spoon. You may ask for both, but the bread depends on the mood of management. My date for the evening had the half Cuban sandwich with the soup of the day, both of which were tasty and filling.
Service has always been good and the prices reasonable. The Tampa Bay Brewing Company was an outstanding prelude to the Heatwave concerts last night.
