Press Release: Tampa Craft Brewery, Coppertail Brewing Co., brings artist Evan B. Harris to Miami’s Art Basel 2016. The artist will paint two murals in December during Miami’s biggest art event.
What is the result when three of Tampa Bay’s finest breweries team up with Slim Pickens Cider and Mead to brew a beer for the band Samiam? A tasty beer, in this case it is called “El Dorado.”
As a testament to the monumental growth of craft beer across the globe, the Great American Beer Festival continues to grow and invite more breweries from across the United States. That means more amazing beers submitted for the judging at the festival competition, one of the most prestigious and competitive in the world. That also means that Florida’s craft breweries are facing stiffer competition from breweries both new and old. This is not a knock against Florida’s breweries, as some of the best beer in the world is crafted in the Sunshine State, just an acknowledgement of the level of competition that everyone is working with.
Press Release: On Saturday July 16 and Sunday, July 17, Coppertail Brewing Co, the Florida inspired, Tampa brewed, brewery and tap room at 2601 East 2nd Avenue, will celebrate the release of its new Independent Pilsner by offering an Industrial Beer Amnesty Program. Starting at noon, lovers of independent, craft beer are invited to bring in an unopened beer from one of the giant industrial breweries to the Coppertail tap room, and have it swapped out for a fresh, locally brewed 12 oz bottle of Independent Pilsner.
Coppertail Brewing realized that they had a great problem when making Cap’n Jack’s Stone Crab Stout. This was a beer whose byproduct, aside from a great stout, was a boatload of stone crabs ripe for the eating. This year, their problem is Tampa’s delight, as they have brought in LoKo Cuisine to serve up some tasty victuals with these quirky crustaceans.
Brews Banner, the mild-mannered Double India Pale Ale from Tampa’s Coppertail Brewing, is about to be the latest green-hopped monster in a bottle. The brewery announced earlier today that this monster of an IPA will be coming to bottles “soon.”
So, every brewery in Tampa Bay is planning some sort of festivities for Tampa Bay Beer Week. That much is certain. Coppertail Brewing has coincided the opening of their new tasting room with the commencement of the week, and thus plans to be hopping for almost the entire week.
