Tampa, FL — Tampa Bay Brewing Company (TBBC), one of the region’s oldest independently owned and operated craft breweries announced a collaboration today with the renowned Hogsbreath Saloons of Key West and Destin fame. Through the partnership, TBBC will produce two exclusive beers “Hair of the Hog” and “Hogsbreath Ale” that will be available at both saloons.
“When you think about Florida, the Florida lifestyle, and iconic destinations, Hogsbreath is certainly at the top of everyone’s list,” stated David Doble, managing partner of TBBC. “It’s out of character for us to produce beer for anyone other than ourselves, but when a bad a** organization and true Florida original like Hogsbreath is excited to collaborate, there’s no answer other than hell yes!”
The new beers build upon TBBC’s award winning line up of Florida inspired beers such as Reef Donkey APA, Old Elephant Foot IPA, Last Days of Summer, Florida Tart, and Gourds Gone Wild. “Hair of the Hog” is a refreshing Belgian Style White Ale, unfiltered with coriander and orange zest. “Hogsbreath Ale” is a sessionable golden ale, with a citrus aroma, low hop bitterness, and is just clean, crisp, and refreshing. Both were brewed with the Florida Keys and Panhandle’s hot and humid environment in mind.
“Our mantra is brewing beers that we love to drink. These two ales are perfect examples, easy drinking and refreshing. We’re excited to get these beers in the hands of Hogsbreath’s loyal patrons next Thursday, just in time for Key West Brewfest,” added Doble.
Tampa Bay Brewing Company is one of Florida’s first & premier Craft Breweries. TBBC opened at the tail end of the last “Micro-Brew” Boom. Our philosophy then and now is simple: Brew beer we love to drink! Thank goodness there were plenty of like-minded people around to support our endeavor. Today, TBBC thrives within the incredible brewing community of Tampa, Florida which was once just a two brewery town…we were lonely back then! We currently operate an Ybor Brewpub and a Production Brewery in the northern part of Tampa. We are organically growing distribution with the end goal of being a Florida only brand with a driving vision of Beer Crafted for the Florida Lifestyle.
