Bon Beer Voyage offers many types of beer tours, or “voyages,” such as International Beercations, International Barge Beercation Cruises and Custom Beer Tours. But the Beer Safari Weekend isn’t a voyage at all. Sure, you can go all out and purchase hotel accommodations with the Bon Beer Voyage group and create your own “staycation,” but the budget-friendly route would be to drive to the highlighted destinations for a fraction of the cost. But either way, participants will enjoy private brewery tours, beer-inspired meals, and a visit to Tarpon Springs, Gulfport and Downtown St. Petersburg if they so desire.

Tampa Bay is one of many stops on this nationwide tour. For this leg, several well-known local breweries will be featured, such as Saint Somewhere, Cigar City, Dunedin Brew Pub, Peg’s Cantina and Seventh Sun.

This buzz-worthy event is a must for craft beer connoisseurs in and around Tampa Bay. It will run from Feb. 10-12, so consider playing hooky on Friday and enjoying a cold one with fellow connoisseurs from around the country.

Call 888-U-GO-Beer (888-846-2337) or email [email protected] for further information and pricing specifics on Tampa Beer Safari Weekend. The pricing on the website includes hotel accommodations and transportation, which would not pertain to the majority of Tampa Bay residents. Visit for information on Bon Beer Voyage.

If you are unable to participate in Tampa’s Beer Safari Weekend, consider taking a road trip this fall for the St. Augustine Beer Safari Weekend.

Bon Beer Voyage is “cruising” into Tampa Bay

It will be a jungle out there at this weekend’s third annual Tampa Beer Safari Weekend. But lucky us … we only have to jump in the car and take a short drive to get a piece of the action.

Bon Beer Voyage was established over 20 years ago by a Florida craft beer-crazed couple who dreamed of combining their love of craft and specialty beer with their love for travel, and finding others who wished to do the same. Once their concept was hatched and implemented, it was full speed ahead. The travel destinations are selected based on the popularity and abundance of craft beer production, and on the availability of tourist attractions to entertain the tour group when they don’t have brewskies in their hands.
