Creative Loafing's Meet The Brewers 2017

Beer enthusiasts rejoice! Meet The Brewers is back for another year.

Join us in kicking off Tampa Bay Beer Week and celebrating the release of Creative Loafing's Beer Issue at Meet The Brewers, where we'll be featuring 20 of Tampa Bay's very own brewers at Morean Arts Center for Clay!

Your favorite brewers will be on-site sampling and mingling with an intimate crowd—a unique opportunity for beer lovers to sip on 40+ local brews while rubbing elbows with the minds behind them! And did we mention our "samples" are 10-ounce pours?! You choose the way you want to try the beer options—get a full 10-ounce pour, just a taste, or whatever your beer-loving heart desires!
