Press Release: Results came in a little more than a week ago for the eleventh World Beer Cup, hosted every two years and known as the most prestigious beer competition in the world. Over 200 judges gathered to taste nearly 6600 entries from 1907 breweries. Among Florida’s five winning breweries, 7venth Sun Brewery of Dunedin (and soon to be Tampa), took a silver medal for their Saison, La Fete, in the Session category. This award was the capstone after accumulating several awards in recent months, including a bronze for Vultures From the Past, a barrel-aged barley wine, at the annual Chicago hosted Festival of Wood and Barrel Aged Beers. 7venth Sun also received best small brewery two years running in Florida’s Best of Florida Beer Championships as well as winning a gold medal for La Fete, a silver for Headbanger IPA and a gold and best small batch beer for Vultures From the Past.
It is no secret that 7venth Sun is driving great beer forward in their Dunedin home and that, as they told Florida Beer News, the new Sun location in Seminole Heights is well on its way. This year, the annual day-after-Hunahpu Day celebration, dubbed Hunahpu Hangover Day, will have a brother.
When news broke of Dunedin’s 7venth Sun Brewery opening a new and larger home in Seminole Heights, the rumor mill started speculating about what might be in store for the stalwart crew of the 7venth Sun.

Proof Brewing Company of Tallahassee is giving away their tap lines. Well, temporarily. The craft brewery is celebrating the oncoming summer with an event that will see the brewery’s taps share with the likes of Founder’s Brewing, Cigar City Brewing, and 7venth Sun Brewing to bring some very unique beers into Florida’s capitol city.

Dunedin’s 7venth Sun Brewing co-owner Devon Kreps has been in Spain for the last few days. While there, Devon has been spreading the good word about 7venth Sun and Florida’s nascent craft beer scene, but she has also been flexing her brewing muscles, brewing up several collaboration beers with Edge Brewing of Barcelona.
Last year, 7venth Sun Brewing Company had an idea to host a festival at their place on Braodway in Dunedin featuring some new and rare beers not yet seen in Tampa Bay Beer Week. What started off as one brewery hosting one event to end the week of weeks for Florida beer has now transitioned to several events throughout the community of Dunedin.
