Founded in the spring of 2017 by Mike Dyer, the Tampa Bay Ale Trail (TBAT) is entering it's third year of publication now under the direction of Tampa Bay Beer Week. Mike started TBAT as a craft beer enthusiast, leveraging his background in publishing and marketing as a means of raising awareness and encouraging repeat, sustainable business to the growing number of independent craft breweries in the area. The program has a simple business model, built to be equally advantageous for the breweries and our hikers, and a lot of fun. Mike moved back to the Northeast and TBBW folded the nano-business into its non-profit organization.
Whether you live in Tampa year-round, seasonally, or are just in town for a few days the Tampa Bay Ale Trail is a great way to discover our great craft breweries, drink world-class beer, meet fellow craft beer enthusiasts, and see the area.
Feel free to reach out to us about any question about the trail, share some ideas, or provide feedback. Enjoy the Trail and see you out there!
