The St. Pete/Clearwater Craft Beer Trail runs north to south from Tarpon Springs to St. Pete — an hour’s drive, end to end.
Think of it as the Sunshine State’s answer to California’s wine country. Along the trail, you’ll stumble upon homegrown breweries offering artisanal beers brewed on site. When you belly up to the tasting room bar, you’ll be among friends, all of whom share a love of local beer and their community.
Take a brewery tour, meet the brewer and fill a growler with your favorite offering. Each brewery along the trail is unique in its setting and vibe – but also in what’s on the menu. Some specialize in summer-friendly sours and others go for locally inspired takes on classics (mango-habanero IPA, anyone?).
Don’t miss a chance to taste the area’s signature beer, Florida Weisse, a tart, low-alcohol, highly carbonated brew inspired by the Berliner Weisse. Local brewers make it their own with hints of the tropics: key lime, dragon fruit and passionfruit.
