Coppertail is a sea monster that lives in Tampa Bay. We know this because our owner and founder's 5-year old daughter (at the time) told us about it. Somehow, though, it seems like the perfect name for this brewery. Coppertail is the strange and fantastic that lurks beneath Tampa Bay. Coppertail is dreaming of the impossible. Kind of like the craft brewing industry going up against the giant mega-brewers. Or like a home-brewer putting everything on the line to start a brewery.
We believe in Coppertail.
The Tasting Room
Our tasting room features a full service bar with 20 taps and a wine list. We sell Coppertail merchandise and packaged/growlered beer to go. Grab a bite to eat from our kitchen that makes delectable small plates to share as well as full meals for one. We are kid-friendly. Dogs are welcome on the spacious outdoor patio. We have a loft space available for private events that features a 6 tap bar and large balcony that overlooks downtown Tampa. The loft is occasionally open to the public on weekends and during special events. We offer brewery tours Thursday through Sunday.
The brewery became operational in the summer of 2014. Our staff brews on a state-of-the-art 50 barrel Rolec brewhouse. We have 1,000 barrels of fermentation space with tanks ranging from 30 barrels to 200 barrels.
The S&V Kitchen at Coppertail
The S&V Kitchen at Coppertail is a full service kitchen that operates out of our tasting room. S&V Kitchen is a satellite restaurant owned by the same folks who own the Stein & Vine, a Tampa favorite. They offer small plates to share, salads and full meals for one.
