In the current climate, with brewery closing announcements seeming to come on a regular basis, brewery anniversary celebrations are always a welcome reminder that many of Florida’s craft breweries are going strong. 7venth Sun Brewery’s is this kind of celebration – one where it is the perfect time to celebrate the beer, the brewery, and the people that make this operation run.
7venth Sun Brewery knows how hard it is to shop for family and loved ones around the holidays, so the Dunedin and Seminole Heights-based brewery is releasing a few new and a favorite beer in cans this week for your gift-giving needs.
Tampa’s 7venth Sun Brewery is turning two years old this week, and what better way to celebrate than by releasing a beer done in a style where both breweries excel: pastry stouts.
Press Release: Results came in a little more than a week ago for the eleventh World Beer Cup, hosted every two years and known as the most prestigious beer competition in the world. Over 200 judges gathered to taste nearly 6600 entries from 1907 breweries. Among Florida’s five winning breweries, 7venth Sun Brewery of Dunedin (and soon to be Tampa), took a silver medal for their Saison, La Fete, in the Session category. This award was the capstone after accumulating several awards in recent months, including a bronze for Vultures From the Past, a barrel-aged barley wine, at the annual Chicago hosted Festival of Wood and Barrel Aged Beers. 7venth Sun also received best small brewery two years running in Florida’s Best of Florida Beer Championships as well as winning a gold medal for La Fete, a silver for Headbanger IPA and a gold and best small batch beer for Vultures From the Past.
It is no secret that 7venth Sun is driving great beer forward in their Dunedin home and that, as they told Florida Beer News, the new Sun location in Seminole Heights is well on its way. This year, the annual day-after-Hunahpu Day celebration, dubbed Hunahpu Hangover Day, will have a brother.
When news broke of Dunedin’s 7venth Sun Brewery opening a new and larger home in Seminole Heights, the rumor mill started speculating about what might be in store for the stalwart crew of the 7venth Sun. In mid-November, 7venth Sun co-owners Justin Stange and Devon Kreps detailed just what they had in mind for the brewery’s rise in one of Tampa’s most up-and-coming neighborhoods.
