Celebrate Tampa Bay beer culture and showcase the area as an emerging and vibrant craft and specialty beer destination.
The inaugural Tampa Bay Beer Week was established in 2012, and has since hosted more than 750 events. Ranging from large-scale festivals to beer tastings, beer dinners and more, the success of TBBW has been a major factor in the continuing growth of the Tampa Bay area craft beer community. Tampa Bay Beer Week begins on the first Saturday of March and ends 8 days later. Our annual mid-year festival, Halfway There, is our major fundraising event.
Who we are
Tampa Bay Beer Week is organized and operated by Tampa Bay Beer Week Inc., a 501c6 Not-for-profit organization. Our board consists of brewers, brewery owners, distributors, home brewers and independent beer enthusiasts.
