Founders Tony Casoria and Kevin Lilly’s vision for Attic Records and Rock Brothers Brewing have finally come to fruition after years in the making with the opening of their new flagship location for both brands in Ybor City, Florida. The 8,000 square foot historic building will house the brewery where all of the Rock Brothers beers will be brewed. The building will also include The Attic concert venue, which originated in a warehouse in St. Petersburg that eventually evolved into Paper Crane and Bloom. Thirdly, and directly connecting the brewery and venue, the building will introduce “The Tasting Room”, which will serve Rock Brothers beers and craft cocktails. This is a reimagined concept for the Tampa Bay beer scene as Rock Brothers will be the only brewery in the bay area focusing heavily on being a professional craft cocktail bar as well.
Voices for Children, Rock Brothers Brewing, and Cigar City Brewing will host the 2nd annual River Rock Craft Beer & Music Festival with co-headliners Spin Doctors and Tonic on Saturday, November 7th 2015. Doors will open at 2:00pm for the 2nd craft beer and music festival in Tampa’s new Waterworks Park.
Multi-platinum rock band 311 has partnered with Rock Brothers Brewing to create and release an exciting custom craft beer in conjunction with the band’s 25th anniversary this summer. “Besides the obvious connection to the band’s hit song of the same name, 311 wanted a very drinkable amber ale with a craft beer twist,” said Rock Brothers co-founder Kevin Lilly.
Music fans who follow Umphrey’s McGee will soon find a new way to connect with the band, with the release of a custom craft-beer called Nothing Too Fancy, Everyday Ale.
Just in time for IPA Day in Tampa, Cigar City is rolling a new session IPA off of their canning line and into the tasting room.
