Dunedin brewery was cool too. Obviously it is in Dunedin. I happened to go when they were having their anniversary and got try a bunch of their stuff. Not too bad. Never been to Cigar City, but I have heard good things.

I live 2 hours south in Fort Myers & have made quite a few trips up. CCB is great about letting you mosy around and talk beer with the brewers and staff. On a few occassions I asked to go check out the brewery and was kind of handed off to an assistant brewer who, after knowing I was a homebrewer, invited be back and showed me the ins and outs of everything. The OKAD firkins they drop from their pilot system are awesome too.

The thing that keeps me going back is that their regulars are top notch beers. They don't just do crazy ****, they actually have perfected their base and flagship offerings, mostly to style. Kind of like a work hard, play hard mentallity.

They are expanding their tap room to 40 something taps and they are also opening a new brew pub in north Tampa where they will also be serving their new line of ciders and meads. They have been doing some collaboration with B nectar.

My best friend's son works there as a brewer and I think they make excellent creative beer.
