Lance & I have still been hitting up breweries any time we have days off together. We’ve made it to most of the local Tampa Bay ones, but there are a few we’ve still got left to cross of our list in the area.
Last week we took a long bike ride at Starkey Wilderness Park in New Port Richey, then stopped by Rapp Brewing in Seminole on our way home. I read about them in Creative Loafing’s Meet the Brewer’s issue.
They serve flights of 4, 6, or 9 beers. I tried 4 – the Chocolate Peanut Butter Stout, North German Altbier, Hefeweizen, and 2016 Pumpkin Ale (which were a nice variety). It was a Tuesday, so it wasn’t super busy, but the people there seemed to be regulars. Our bartender was really nice and welcoming.
While we were there, a customer dropped off his own beer for the Best Florida Beer Homebrew Championships. We haven’t tried homebrewing, but I’ve heard it’s super technical and takes a lot of practice to make anything remotely drinkable. I think we’ll leave it to the experts and keep visiting breweries for our drinks!
Rapp Brewing is located at 10930 Endeavour Way, Seminole, FL 33777 and is open 3pm – 10pm Monday – Thursday, 3pm – 12am Friday, 2pm – 12am Saturday, and 3am – 8pm Sunday.
