14 Nov Gulp Coast Passport takes you and you company on craft beer adventures
The holiday season is rapidly approaching and you may have friends or company coming to Florida to experience our wonderful weather and beaches. But after you catch up on the latest or make attempts to avoid those questions that you’d rather not entertain, the question often becomes… now what can I do to keep them busy and get them out of the house (at least for a little while)?
TampaBay Food and Craft Beer Tours has just the answer! Send them on a 3-hour walking Food and Craft Beer Tour or a Craft Beer and Bites Tour in Dunedin or St. Petersburg. Each tour guarantees that your guests will experience Tampa Bay in a very unique way tasting their way through some of the most authentic flavors and brews this area has to offer. Each of our tours is designed to provide both locals and visitors to Tampa Bay alike the chance to learn about the cultural history of our waterfront or urban communities. Knowledgeable tour guides will take them through the neighborhoods while introducing them to the tastes of Tampa.
You might wonder seriously why should I consider a walking Craft Beer and Bites tour? The answer here is pretty simple…because of the great craft beer we have in Tampa Bay. Our tours hit 4 -5 local breweries, many who have been highly recognized and earned both local and national awards for their craftsmanship. Each stop provides two to three 4 ounce pours of their flavorful beer or cider. In addition, two to three of the stops will include tastings from local restaurants. The guided tour includes not just history about the neighborhood, but a crash course in the production of craft beer (“craft beer making and tasting 101”)– and in many cases a tour of the brewery or a talk from the brewer him or herself.
TampaBay Food and Craft Beer also has joined with Visit St. Pete and Clearwater to encourage their Gulp Coast Brewery Passport @ thier web site. www.GulpCoast.com
In addition to getting time out of the house, guests will receive stamps for each brewery in the Passport which goes towards prizes. Our tours currently hit 9 of the breweries featured in the Passport.
Again, you may still be thinking why a Craft Beer and Bites Tour – and we think the answer again is pretty simple. It’s a fun way to spend an afternoon or early evening enjoying Tampa Bay’s beautiful weather, meet new people, explore perhaps a new area, and learn first-hand in a VIP experience about a craft that has experienced a major revolution. And the best part is guests get to drink and taste some of the best independent brews in the country. We believe it is one of the best ways to showcase Tampa to your friends and family and we hope you’ll even choose to tag along for the experience.
Hope to see you soon as you explore Tampa Bay’s great neighborhoods to Eat. Drink. Local
