A Mysterious sea creature

The story starts with a 5 year old girl (our owner’s daughter) telling tales of an enormous creature that she coined “Coppertail.” It’s found in the waters around Tampa Bay causing mischief and mayhem for people and sea life alike .

The mysterious beast continues to lurk the Tampa waters only revealing its tail for those who are lucky enough to witness.

TASTING ROOM


TASTING ROOM


A tasting room as unique as our brand

Our tasting room is built and decorated with old world Tampa in mind. Our bar is reclaimed wood from the Arturo Fuente building. Rail cars were used to transport mayonnaise and olives from our building in the 1920’s. Our bar foot rail is the long-buried train rail that we unearthed during construction. Our bar is decorated with old relics that each have their unique stories. It’s important to us that those stories never are forgotten.

We pour 20 unique beers at any given time that regularly rotate. Our brewers’ creativity keeps the tap list exciting and ever changing. We offer tours that allow our guests a unique view into our brewery. You’ll sample beer and hear about the history of Coppertail and our 100 year old Ybor City building.
