About the Exhibit

History by the Pint traces the heady history of beer-brewing in the bay area, from its Ybor origins to Florida’s craft beer capital.

Learn about early breweries and brewing methods, Prohibition’s effects on Florida, the rise of national breweries in Tampa, and how the home brewing movement of the 1970s triggered a cultural shift in the way Americans consume beer.

The exhibit features Florida Brewing Company artifacts, which was the first commercial brewery in Florida, as well as items from larger national breweries that called Tampa home in the 1960s through the 1990s. Also included are photos and items related to the bay area’s craft beer boom from Dunedin Brewery, Cigar City, Ulele, Coppertail and more.

All paid guests will receive a free pint glass on opening weekend (March 2-3) while supplies last.

“History by the Pint” opens to the public March 2 and continues through August 11.
