In May 2006, founders Mark and Trish Lyons inaugurated Brews Cruise with mobile tours of Asheville, North Carolina’s fine craft breweries. The Lyons’ goal? To share their enthusiasm for exceptional breweries and leave cruisers with a better understanding of the creative process behind beer making. Over the last 8 years, Brews Cruise locations have expanded to Denver CO, Charleston SC, Atlanta GA, Charlotte NC, Chicago IL, "Space Coast" FL, Las Vegas NV and now Tampa Bay Florida!
I moved to Tampa with my wife Lauren nearly 10 years ago on a corporate transfer by a major financial institution. After years of the cubicle life, I hung up my programming skills and looked to move in another direction. I have been a home brewer for years, moving from brewing outside on my patio, to a more sophisticated electric system in my garage this past year. I have won medals in Florida State competitions and continue to enter as many competitions as possible. I also belong to local beer club, and have served in various roles in the "Best Florida Beer Competition". When I contacted Mark and Trish Lyons of Brews Cruise, I knew I had found the perfect line of work for myself.
The Tampa Bay craft beer scene has exploded in the last 2 years. Craft breweries both big and small dot our landscape today, making Tampa one of the premiere beer towns to visit. In addition, we are fortunate to have wonderful weather that we enjoy 12 months a year.
So climb on board our Brew Cruise vehicle and see for yourself all that Tampa has to offer. Learn the techniques behind brewing great craft beers and taste for yourself the beers that put Tampa on the craft beer map.
