Earlier this year, there were talks of a Yuengling-themed hotel popping up in Tampa at 11111 N. 30th St. near Busch Gardens. Well, Yuengling Beer Company had a rezoning hearing last month to get the green light to build a hotel next door to the main brewery. According to the Tampa Bay Business Journal, Tampa City Council unanimously approved Yuengling's plans for a mixed-use redevelopment on its 43-acre property.
Carlos Alfonso, a Tampa architect involved in the project, told TBBJ that construction is slated to kick off in May 2020.
The plans includes all things a hotel would typically host: 200 hotel rooms, a restaurant, and a 5,900-square-foot conference room. Oh, and a microbrewery, a beer garden, tasting room, and a Yuengling museum. If going on a tour of the main brewery isn't enough, you can booze and snooze in Tampa's new hotel. Prepare to plan your next staycation at the Yuengling-themed hotel — although you may checkout with a beer gut.
More details to come as construction begins and vacancy becomes available.
