We couldn´t agree more. For most of the time the Planet offices were located in Ybor City, BrewCo was not only one of the main after-work hangouts, but a favorite lunch spot as well. BrewCo doesn´t offer any domestic beers besides their own. Then again, they don´t have to; there are generally somewhere between a dozen and 20 of their own brews (as well as a plethora of familiar-to-obscure imports) available at any given time, running the gamut from crisp pale ales to ass-kicking stouts. You can play it safe, or you can get adventurous; they do. Plus, BrewCo´s got one of the most eclectic and across-the-board tasty menus you´ll find in any tavern, anywhere, and a full-liquor bar to boot.
