3 Daughters Brewing – St. Petersburg, FL


After our morning at Brew D Licious and the Chihuly Collection, we decided to check out another St. Pete craft brewery.  We bar-hopped between St. Pete Brewing, Green Bench, and Cycle Brewing a few weeks ago, but we were anxious to try out more of St. Pete’s local beers.  I’ve heard great reviews about 3 Daughters Brewing, which has been open about 10 months now. 

They are located just west of I-275 in the warehouse/arts district of St. Petersburg.  The facility is pretty spacious, and they just recently started canning and distributing last week.

The main bar area is designed in the same style as most new bars and restaurants – rustic industrial with filament bulbs in metal pendants.  What really makes their location a fun hangout are all the games!  I’ve seen oversized Jenga and Connect 4 at other bars, but they go beyond that with ping-pong tables, foosball, and even a mini-golf course!

The beers we sampled were fantastic.  I started off with their Kahwa Coffee Blonde and Lance had the Bimini Twist IPA.  I’ve never had a light coffee beer before – they tend to be porters.  I loved the flavor – totally different from any beer I’ve ever had.  And Lance is a big fan of IPA’s, so of course he liked his. 

We tried a little bit of almost everything next in flights – served in little wooden crates with chalk labels on the sides.  My favorite was the Pun’kin Ale – which unlike most pumpkin beers, wasn’t overly sweet. 

We were there in the afternoon, so it wasn’t too crowded, but they said they get packed on weekend nights.  We spent a long time playing ping-pong – we actually did pretty well, despite being slightly tipsy.  Then I went on to beat Lance in foosball and putt-putt (he is the athlete between the two of us, so it was nice to beat him in something…)

It would be such a fun place to get together with friends.  I know we’ll be back for sure. 

3 Daughters Brewing is located at 222 22nd St S, St Petersburg, FL 33712 and is open 2pm – 9pm Monday and Tuesday, 2pm – 10pm Wednesday and Thursday, 2pm – 12am Friday, 12pm – 12am Saturday, and 1pm – 9pm on Sunday.
