Our History -
The Tampa Bay BEERS (Brewing Enthusiasts Enjoying Real Suds) was formed in 1990 by Ben Meisler and friends at the original Tampa Bay Brewing Company located on Dale Mabry highway in Carollwood. After the TBBC closed in 1991 club meetings moved to the old Proud Lion Pub at Dale Mabry and Fletcher. When that place closed we again moved and have met at a variety of places all over town through the years including O’Briens Irish Pub, Gino’s, Hi Tide Fish & Chips, the Oak Barrel Tavern, the new Tampa Bay Brewing Company, the New World Brewery, and now Mr. Dunderbaks.
