Ooooooohhhh, we’re Halfway There! We are so excited for this year’s Halfway There: A Celebration of Beer, which marks the midpoint to Tampa Bay Beer Week. Brought to you by the Tampa Bay Beer Week (TBBW) board and the Tampa Bay Brewer’s Alliance (TBBA), this is our primary fundraiser and your attendance is the best way to help us make TBBW bigger and better each year. We invite dozens of breweries, both near and far, to share their finest offerings that best represent Tampa Bay’s beer culture.
By popular demand, this year we will bring the party across the Bay for a Pinellas celebration at The Coliseum! This historic building in the heart of St Pete is within walking distance of lots of great restaurants, bars, hotels, etc.
Also by popular demand, Halfway There will be on a Saturday this year – August 26! We suggest making a whole weekend out of it and enjoying all that downtown St. Pete has to offer. The Yankees will also be playing the Rays at 4:10 that day, so if your plans include attending that, come pregame with us at Halfway There!
We will have well over 50 breweries/meaderies represented – be on the lookout for those announcements in the near future! These announcements will be posted throughout the 60 days of our early bird ticket sale (until July 26 just type “earlybird” at checkout for the early pricing of $55 plus taxes and fees).
While there will be parking available on site at The Coliseum, we strongly encourage the use of ride share and public transportation. Please be safe and don’t drink and drive.Designated driver tickets will be available for $20. Designated driver ticket holders will be given a different wristband and will be able to enjoy the various non-alcoholic offerings available during the festival. No one without a ticket will be admitted into the event – this includes designated drivers.
This event is strictly 21 and up, and pets are not allowed. We love kids, dogs, cats, and other friendly critters, but this is a beer event designed for adults. For everyone’s safety and comfort, there will be no exceptions to this rule.
