- Inside the Cold Storage Craft Brewery.
Cold Storage Craft Brewery opened last year, launching their trademark draft Florida Avenue Ale in blueberry and IPA. Tuesday, founders Andy DeLaParte, Bruce Talcott, and Brent Berthy celebrated the opening of their public tasting room on Florida Avenue.
The tasting room has all the Cold Storage Brewery beers on draft, and had been open to public one Saturday a month. Now, tasters can swing by for a brew Tuesday-Thursday from 4-8 p.m., Friday 2-11 p.m. and Saturday 11 a.m.-11 p.m.
"Florida Avenue isn't just our address and the name of our beer," co-founders Bruce Talcott and Andy DeLaParte said Tuesday. "It's a state of mind."
The grand opening party is Friday, August 17, 3-11 p.m. There will be plenty of beer specials, live music, and more. Saturday, August 18, Cold storage will offer their standard tour and tasting from 1-4 p.m. with tours of the brewery at 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. On Saturday, $10 will score you a Cold Storage Brewery pint glass and three beers of your choice.
The brewery is 21+ with I.D. Cold Storage Brewery is located at 4101 N. Florida Ave., Tampa, 813-374-2101.
