Only the second year of this festival, and already the rest of the world is taking notice. With over 200 events spread around the bay, and some truly top-notch happenings, Tampa Bay proved it can attract craft beer lovers from all over. Every day brought something amazing, from beer pairing dinners to collaboration releases to full-blown festivals. We had visiting brewers from Belgium, homebrewers sharing their talents, and a Beer Week kick-off with Mayor Buckhorn tapping a firkin of the first-ever 13-brewery collaboration brew. tampabaybeerweek.com.
