When they opened a shiny new production facility in Wesley Chapel, many questioned why Brew Bus Brewing remained in their original location on Florida Avenue. Yesterday, Brew Bus Founder and CEO Anthony Derby sent an email to the company’s newsletter informing fans and patrons of the news of Brew Bus Brewing’s official move and the closure of the Seminole Heights Facility.
From Brew Bus Brewing:
Our Brew Bus wheels keep turning… as we have decided to hit the open road and return to our mobile roots.
Monday, May 31, will be our last day slinging burgers and beers at 4101 North Florida Avenue with the expiration of our lease agreement.
When we opened our brick-and-mortar location back in 2016, it was our hope to make the North Florida Avenue location our flagship location, but ultimately, we could not come to terms with our landlord to purchase the property. So, in 2018 we started looking for a property we could invest in without the fear of having to one day leave. We found that spot just north of us in Wesley Chapel. Now that our new state-of-the-art production facility is pumping out beer for Florida Avenue Brewing Co. and Brew Bus Brewing, we can focus on producing new specialty products that will be available in stores across the Tampa Bay area and at Florida Avenue Brewing Co., and beyond.
This summer, our team will be hitting the road and teaming up with our retail partners to feature pop-up events and launch limited-edition beers in cans and draft throughout the region.
And finally, a huge heartfelt Thank You to all our patrons, employees, and the community for the best five years. You all have become an extension of our family and our employees’ families, and we look forward to having a few beers with you all this coming Monday. To celebrate we’re bringing back our ‘Heights Night’ event for one last hooray, featuring a free draft to those who work or live in the Seminole Heights community from noon – 8 p.m. on Monday.
This isn’t goodbye, it’s see ya soon…
The Seminole Heights community has been so great to us and there’s no doubt we’ll be back! Stay tuned for a future project we are working on within the neighborhood. In the meantime, you can find out where our beers will be pouring via our Beer Finder app on our website.
We can’t wait to keep the good times rollin’.
