After a two-year hiatus and a slight name change, The Florida Aquarium finally brings back one of Tampa's best parties.

Rhythm & Brews by the Bay— a concert experience with unlimited beer tastings—returns to 701 Channelside Dr. on Friday, Sept. 16.

There are both $125 general admission tickets and $175 VIP tickets for sale at flaquarium.org. Both ticket tiers come with unlimited local beer samples,  a complimentary beer stein, access to the live music, scenic views of Hillsborough Bay and all of the aquarium's critters—but the VIP tickets grant guests early access, in addition to a complimentary bar and dedicated concert viewing area.

Event Details

Rhythm & Brews by the Bay

$125 - $175
A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will also support The Florida Aquarium’s mission programs, which focus conservation, research, education and outreach.

Gin Blossoms is no stranger to the Tampa Bay area, as the five-piece band brought its notable songs like “Hey Jealousy” and “Til I Hear it From You” to St. Petersburg’s Palladium Theater just last fall. And although the alt-rocker band has released a slew of music since  the early '90s, some of its most popular singles are still from its 1992 LP, New Miserable Experience.

Opening for Gin Blossoms is Ken Block and Andrew Copeland of Florida-based band Sister Hazel, who will kick things off with an acoustic set at 7 p.m. The entire event should run until 11 p.m., so you have about four hours to sample as many beers as possible.

Clearwater’s Big Storm Brewing Co,, one of the sponsors for Rhythm & Brews by the Bay, will definitely be there slinging its prized craft beers, alongside many other Tampa Bay-based breweries that have yet to be announced.
