Tampa Bay Brewing Company has a line of 8 core and 38 seasonal proprietary beers. To complement our beer, we also have a unique menu that goes well beyond your typical pub fare. Many menu items are beer-infused; they feature and highlight the signature Tampa Bay Brewing Company beers to create award-winning entrees and appetizers.

Our family founded the Tampa Bay Brewing Company in 1995 to satisfy Tampa Bay’s thirst for a better beer and great food at a reasonable price. It’s still a family affair, with John, Vicki, and David Doble all serving key roles within the company.
Our original location was a two-story brick building that used to house horses on 15th Street here in the historic Ybor City district which opened in February 1997. Needing more space for our ever-growing fan base, we moved to our current location on the plaza level of Centro Ybor in 2006 with both indoor and open-air patio seating. In 2015 an additional location was added with a production brewery and restaurant in the Westchase area of Tampa.
The Doble Family Foundation is dedicated to education, conservation and local veteran’s causes. Please visit our foundation page for more information: Doble Family Foundation
In Memory of Our Founder
John G. Doble, III
Johnny was the creator and founder of the Tampa Bay Brewing Company and is survived by his son Chris. The brothers of Johnny, through the consensus of our family, have established a memorial fund to create a final resting place and living testament to Johnny’s life.
Before Johnny became immersed in the daily activities of operating two successful businesses, his one consistent passion was the ocean and marine life. His remains were cast into an artificial reef structure as shown below, which has been placed at an accessible location near Sarasota. Johnny’s reef structure will provide an excellent memorial and final resting place for a man that lived such a full life.
The company selected to provide this special service is Eternal Reefs, Inc. (www.eternalreefs.com) Eternal Reefs, Inc. creates permanent living legacies that memorialize the passing of a loved one.
Annually, the John G. Doble, III Memorial Scholarship is awarded by the Florida Brewer’s Guild in honor of Johnny. This scholarship provides tuition assistance to deserving recipients to attend the World Brewing Academy Concise Course in Brewing Technology at the Siebel Institute of Technology in Chicago, America’s oldest brewing school. Johnny was a graduate of this course. Link to scholarship details.
