Tampa Bay's Brewery Guide

Get Ready for the 2nd Annual Bad A** Beer Fest!

Tampa Bay Brewing Company will be hosting the Second Annual BadA** Beerfest on Friday, July 31, 2015, on the site of their new brewery and restaurant in Westchase of Tampa, FL.

In addition to the anniversary celebration, the event will mark the Grand Opening of the new Production Brewery and Restaurant across from the Oldsmar Flea Market.

Our very own Brewery Bay developer Chris went last year and had an amazing time. This year, he’s looking forward to checking out their new facility since they had the groundbreaking last year, and to seeing the much larger list of breweries. The best part about the event? They remained heavily local.

This year, TBBCo will release their 20th Anniversary beer: Full Moon Madness, a subtropical porter. Every participant will receive one 16oz can of it. This event is professionally planned and run and 3,500 attendees are expected to attend this year! The festival will feature live music, craft beer sampling and food trucks. Parking will be located at Oldsmar Flea Market.

Attending breweries


VIP admission will be from 6-7pm and general admission from 7-11pm. Tickets are available in advance for $35 or $45 at the door. VIP Tickets are $50 or $65 at the door. A general admission upgrade to VIP will be available at the door for $20 if VIP tickets are still available.

Every local brewery and homebrewing club in the Tampa Bay area has been invited to participate, even some that are not operating yet! This is a rare opportunity to try some beers that have not been brought to market. In addition, they will have vendors with shirts, cigars, and other merchandise!
