While much of the country will take to the stores this Black Friday, many craft breweries will be releasing specialty beers. Tampa’s Hidden Springs Ale Works will be releasing their Black Aggie Imperial Stout and giving their fans several different draft versions of this fan favorite to choose from on the day they dub “Black Aggie Day.” The brewery will also be extending their operating hours to stay open from Noon until Midnight on Black Friday/ Black Aggie Day.
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.”

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.
When Shelton Brothers Importers announced that The Festival would be in Saint Petersburg this year, many people looked up the information and sought out tickets.
