Ryan, I'm not sure what part of the Tampa area you're in but:
Brandon Bootleggers Homebrew Club meets every third Wednesday at O'Brien's in Brandon. We usually get 30+ people. Dues are dirt cheap. We usually have a "tips" presentation, announcements and samples sharing.
We also have a "Competition Team" that meets the first Thursday. Each member of this group chooses a specific style to focus on, and we dig deeper into how each of us can improve our selected brews with twin goals of becoming better brewers and successfully competing for medals.
If you're interested let me know or email firstname.lastname@example.org
