Check out Cigar City Brewing. They're fantastic and their brewpub is attached to the brewery.

I don't know much about Tampa, but you might try "Wood-Fired Pizza" They have at least an "ok" beer selection and Pete Taylor makes a great pizza.

I highly recommend the humidor series IPA at Cigar City.

Their humidor series beers are aged on spanish cedar, which is a strongly spicey mahogany that will surprise you. Take my word for it. I love it. It has won a gold at GABF. They probably won't have it on tap, so buy a bottle.

It's one of my fave beers ever. Good luck and enjoy. If you go the brewery, ask for Wayne, he's the head brewer, one of the nicest guys you are likely to meet.
