“Of the many things St. Petersburg is rich in – arts, waterfront dining, parks, etc. – one of the city’s greatest perks is the absolute wealth of craft breweries. Like churches in a small town, there’s one on seemingly every corner.
The explosion of beer in the area has made the ‘Burg a popular tourist destination for craft drinkers nationwide. So much so that the greater St. Pete-Clearwater area has even earned the punny nickname ‘The Gulp Coast’ in honor of the more than 50 breweries in the region. If you include breweries in Tampa (and you should, if you have time) around ¼ of Florida’s 400+ breweries can be found within an easy drive of downtown St. Pete. It’s crazy to think that back in 2013, there were only two in the city – Green Bench and 3 Daughters Brewing.”
