Black Friday is rolling around once again, and 2020 is no different. For many beer enthusiasts, Black Friday is the day to forget that Anheuser-Busch InBev owns Goose Island Brewing as they release a few bottles of barrel-aged stout that draw attention away from Goose Island’s strategy the rest of the year – namely releasing forgettable beers on repeated BOGOs and working to take cooler and shelf space away from independent craft breweries.
Tampa Bay Brewing Company (TBBC), one of the oldest breweries in the state of Florida posted this morning that the brewery will join the list of Florida craft breweries sending beer outside of the Sunshine State.
Tampa Bay Brewing Company has been kicking out the cans, and recently they have added a new seasonal beer to the lineup: Quat. Quat is a sessionable fruit ale made with kumquats, made to coincide with the Dade City Kumquat Festival. The beer is canned and out in the market right now.
Like several other breweries across Florida, Tampa Bay Brewing Company is releasing bottles of special beers on Black Friday.
