Brew Tour on the Gulp Coast

The Gulp Coast Beer Trail runs north to South from Tarpon Springs to St. Pete - an hour's drive, end to end.

Along the trail, you'll find homegrown breweries offering artisanal beers brewed onsite. When you belly up to the tasting room bar, you'll be among friends, all of whom share a love of local beer and their community. For this trip, you'll take a brewery tour, meet the brewer and taste a flight (4 to 6 pours) from Four Craft Breweries: Mad Beach, Mastry's on St Pete Beach, Green Bench and 3 Daughters in downtown St. Petersburg. Each brewery along the trail is unique in its setting and vibe - transportation is provided. Space is limited to the first 38 people who sign up!
