At 5023 N. Florida Ave. in Seminole Heights—next to pet boutique Health Mutt and across the street from Independent Bar and Cafe—lies Tampa’s newest brewery and watering hole.

After months of construction-related delays, craft brewery Common Dialect is finally ready to open its doors. From noon-10 p.m. on Friday-Saturday, Jan. 13- Jan.14, Seminole Heights’ newest brewery will celebrate its grand opening.

Chock full of craft beer, music, and food trucks, Common Dialect’s debut weekend is family and pet-friendly—an important aspect of the local business.
Friday’s festivities include musician Sam Williams and traveling taqueria Te Invito, while Deejay Kellen provides the tunes on Saturday, alongside popular food truck Sous, LLC.

Owners and longtime Seminole Heights residents Kendra and Mike Conze have been tirelessly transforming an empty warehouse space into their vibrant and welcoming brewery for the better part of two years. While the brewery has yet to release its specific tap list,  co-owner and head brewer Mike tells Creative Loafing Tampa Bay that Common Dialect will boast a well-rounded spread of popular and expected beers.

The Conze's announced the opening of their debut brewery in the summer of 2021, and Kendra's other business Health Mutt—which she's owned and operated for over a decade—re-opened out of its new space adjacent to Common Dialect just a few months ago.
