Tampa Bay Brewing Company of Ybor City and Tampa (Westchase) is announcing the return of two favorites and one new collaboration in their latest newsletter.
Oktoberfest This beer is the “sleeper” in our entire portfolio. Our brewers love it, loyal patrons look forward to it, and the cult following seems to grow each year. A traditional German Märzen Lager, coppery red with just the right amount of sweetness. Brewed as it should be using a single decoction mash which helps extract more flavor, color, and sugars from the grain. Just 30 cases of 4-packs are available and a smattering will hit stores. For the semi-professional race car drivers in town, a limited number of 1/6 BBL kegs are available at Westchase for purchase.
Gourds Gone Wild our fall pumpkin spice ale is now on store shelves and in our taprooms. We increased the total production this year as demand has been insane, but do not expect to find it everywhere and within just 6 weeks it will be gone until The Great Pumpkin rises again in 2020. Each year we tweak the recipe slightly and this year is no different. The result is rich, smooth and well balanced. It’s not a spice bomb, nor overly sweet. There’s a solid bready (perhaps even crusty) body with just the right amount of spice to offset a pleasant dollop of vanilla. 6.0% ABV.
Boyz n Berry Muff-n, brewed in collaboration with Tarpon River Brewing of Ft. Lauderdale… So, this is what it looks like when you cram a couple hundred pounds of fresh boysenberries and spices into a can… This tasty Imperial Berliner (8% ABV) is our next small batch release. A very limited number of cases will be available at our taprooms along with draft. Stay tuned to our social feeds for details on when you should setup your tent and camp-out overnight to get your paws on this one.
