Tampa Bay’s newest craft brewery, 3 Daughters, opens Saturday, December 14. They held sneak preview for a few hundred friends and supporters Thursday night.

Located in a former municipal plumbing supply building at 222 22nd St. S in the emerging Warehouse Arts District, 3 Daughters Brewing is the brainchild of Bella Brava co-owner Mike Harting. It includes a 30-barrel brewhouse (twice the size of Cigar City Brewing’s when it opened nearly five years ago), a 2,000-square-foot tasting room and plenty of room to expand.

Thursday night’s celebration even drew some members of St. Pete city council, along with current St. Pete Mayor Bill Foster and Mayor-elect Rick Kriseman, with Kriseman pouring the ceremonial first beer and raising a glass to the crowd. Kriseman talked about the impact the brewery could have on the 22nd St. S., corridor and the importance of the growing craft beer industry to the city (four breweries and counting so far).

Also on hand to welcome the newcomer was a gaggle of representatives of the Tampa Bay craft beer brewing scene, including Cigar City, Green Bench, Rapp, Barley Mow, Big Storm, Pair O’ Dice and Coppertail.

Seven beers were on tap, including the signature, sessionable Beach Blonde Ale, the Summer Storm Oatmeal Stout, the Brown Pelican Dunkelweizen (a winner), a pale ale, an IPA (a solid example of the style), a porter and a Witbier. No barrel-aged beers on tap yet, but they are coming.

Three Daughters Brewing Grand Opening, $20 for tasting wristbands, 3-9 p.m., 222 22nd St. S., St. Petersburg, 727-495-6002, 3dbrewing.com. Brewery will maintain regular hours 2-8 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.
