Recently, Tampa Bay has been poppin’!


With fellow Tampa Bay Blogger Caitlyn Connolly at the delicious Tampa Bay Bloody Mary Fest

You may have seen me out and about this past weekend. What didn’t I do? I walked the Riverwalk, went to the Tampa Downtown Carnival, enjoyed macaroni and cheese at the Mayor’s Macaroni and Cheese Throwdown, attended the Sunscreen Film Festival in downtown St. Pete, and then enjoyed the Tampa Bloody Mary Festival. (Plus a gorgeous run on Bayshore, yoga galore, and more!)

Oh goodness that’s a lot!

It’s great to see Tampa Bay having so many opportunities for fun and excitement. This area is “God’s waiting room” no more!

And the fun just keeps a coming!

Next Tuesday marks the FIFTH (wowza!) Brews With Attitude event by Pepin Distributing.


What is this, you may ask?

A craft beer and cider festival on Tuesday May 12 from 6 pm to 10 pm at the T Pepin Hospitality Center in Tampa.


What does this mean?

  • Over 100 craft beer and cider samplings (I’m psyched for the cider y’all)
  • Food trucks
  • Hand rolled cigars (because, you know, Ybor in Tampa = Cuban)
  • One-off craft beer releases

What breweries will be there? List includes:

  • Florida Ave Brewing Company
  • Tampa Bay Brewing Company
  • Coppertail Brewing Company
  • 3 Daughters Brewing
  • Green Flash Brewing Company
  • Kona Brewing Company
  • Rocky Mountain Wild Cider
  • Sweetwater Brewing Company (the taste of college for me!)
  • Southern Tier Brewing Company
  • Vermont Hard Cider (aka Woodchuck)
  • Magic Hat Brewing Company
  • Shipyard Brewing Company
  • Cider Mixology
  • Goose Island Beer Company
  • Many More!!

Wahoo y’all! I’m excited because, in case you didn’t know, I like #RunningForBrews. (Yes, that’s the actual name of my running club! Reminder that I haven’t visited my RFB friends in far too long for a run. Gotta get on that asap!)

Get tickets to the event here. General admission is $38/ticket.

What’s better than buying tickets to this event? WINNING tickets.

And I’ve got ya.

I’m giving away TWO tickets to #BrewsWithAttitude! Wahoo again, right?! Enter below to win. Giveaway ends Sunday at 12 noon. Good luck and happy drinking!

    I’m not a beer drinker but I am still looking forward to attending. It seems Tampa Bay just keeps putting on better and better events and it is great to be able to help spread the word about some of them through Tampa Bay Bloggers 🙂

    I’m not drinking 1 beer, I’m drinking lots of beers, it’s called a tasting and it’s what fancy people do.
