Brew Bus Brewing in the Seminole Heights neighborhood of Tampa is celebrating the one year anniversary of its brick and mortar brewery and tasting room by throwing a massive bottle release and anniversary party, beginning at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 22.
Fans of locally brewed beer and brewery tours have made The Brew Bus Terminal & Brewery a popular place to enjoy signature craft beers and to dine at its onsite kitchen, The Eatery, which features freshly prepared, cooked-to-order dishes. The Brew Bus Terminal also serves as the place to park and embark on bus tours of Tampa Bay’s craft beer community.
Anthony Derby, CEO and founder of Brew Bus Brewing said, “When we started brewing in 2012 we dreamed of expanding into our own brick and mortar where we could serve award winning handcrafted beers and great food. In 2016, that dream was realized with the opening of the Brew Bus Terminal & Brewery, and it has continued to grow over the last year with the support of the community. We invite everyone to join us on April 22 to celebrate our first anniversary.”
The exclusive bottle release at the anniversary party will feature Bourbon Barrel-aged Curb Check Imperial Porter along with variants – Bourbon Barrel-aged Curb Check with Madagascar Vanilla Beans & Cacao Nibs and Bourbon Barrel-aged Curb Check with roasted Brazilian coffee beans from Tampa based Buddy Brew Coffee. All three versions will be sold in 22 ounce bottles at a designated area within the Tasting Room (cash or credit) and will also be in limited draft.
The Bourbon Barrel-aged Curb Check Imperial Porter and variants will be available for sale individually or combine all three bottles, souvenir Anniversary Teku glass, and reusable bottle bag for $60 ($4 savings).
Chef Max Sherard of The Eatery will be rolling out the smoker for authentic southern-style BBQ. BBQ plates will be available for purchase in front of the building while draft beer can be purchased at the bar or in the brewery. To keep lines moving, the bar will only be accepting tokens (tokens can be purchased via cash or credit). Each token is worth $5. All draft beers will be exchanged for one token, and all BBQ plates will be exchanged for two tokens.
The celebration will also include live music from Kasondra Rose, outdoor games and putt putt for the entire family, and a toast to another great year in Seminole Heights.
