As Tampa’s temperatures reach an all-time high in August, the “Halfway There” marker for Tampa Bay Beer Week 2018 could not be any more convenient or welcomed. On Saturday, August 25 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., the Halfway There: A Festival of Beer hosted at Heights Public Market will bring us a much-needed refresher in the way of ice-cold beers from 50 breweries.

Celebrate the upcoming TBBW 2019 as well as Tampa’s premier craft beer scene by trying brews from local and national companies as well as specialty imports. There will be a number of local breweries pouring their best including 7venth Sun Brewing, Cigar City Brewing, Coppertail Brewing Co., Florida Avenue Brewing Co., Tampa Bay Brewing Company, and many more.

Food will be available for purchase from Heights Public Market, Tampa's newest trendy food hall. The market features a variety of cuisines sure to please any palette including ramen bowls, bbq, wood-fired pizza, sushi, burritos, and Cuban and Filipino staples.
