St. Pete Breweries

Cycle Brewing

534 Central Ave., St. Petersburg, FL 33701

It is fitting for this legendary spot to be first on your St. Pete brewery tour. The space itself is small and cozy, bedecked with works from local artists. A few sidewalk picnic tables along Central Avenue provide the perfect place to enjoy your beers outside if you choose. But the star here is the beer.

Sought after nationwide, especially for its selection of barrel-aged stouts, you cannot go wrong. The core beers like Crank IPA are amazing and always on tap, and there are often seasonal and specialty offerings which vary depending on when you go. Cycle is a great spot especially if you like dark, sweet beers.

Don’t forget to check out their selection of beers to go, many of which are limited-release.

The new St. Pete brewery on our list is right across the street from Cycle Brewing.

St. Pete Brewing Company

544 1st Ave N, St. Petersburg, FL 33701

The beer menu at St. Pete Brewing Company is a mix of staples, specialty offerings, and guest taps. Plus there’s almost always something delicious in the slushie machine.

If you’re so inspired, plan your St. Pete breweries tour around one of the many special events St. Pete Brewing offers — live music, bingo, and open mic nights to name a few. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for upcoming events.

And, if you visit on a pleasant weather day, you could even walk 20 minutes to The Dalí Museum or 30 minutes to Sunken Gardens.

Overflow Brewing Company

770 1st Ave N, St. Petersburg, FL 33701

Next on the walking path is Overflow Brewing. A cute spot with outdoor seating, this is another brewery on the list with plenty of events on the calendar to plan around if you’d like! They have rotating food trucks, trivia nights, live music, board game nights and even live painting nights. You can usually view events on their Facebook page.


Green Bench Brewing Company & Webb’s City Cellar

1133 Baum Ave N, St. Petersburg, FL 33705

This is another can’t miss stop on the tour of St. Pete Breweries with two distinct taprooms. Originally Green Bench Brewing Company had one building with a taproom and an expansive beer garden to enjoy your brews. Green Bench has since opened up Webb’s City Cellar next door.

Webb’s is where you’ll find the funkiest, sourest, coolest offerings this brewery has in a smaller, more intimate setting. Plus, Webb’s is 21+ if you’re hoping to escape the more kid-friendly vibe of the beer garden area while enjoying your sours. The tap list varies by season.

In the summer, try the Lime Life lager, perfect for a warm day. In the winter you’ll find plenty of dark and roasty stouts along with tasty ciders. Green Bench often hosts movie showings on the lawn, with all kinds of other events like live music and book signings also gracing the brewery from time to time.

Also, Good Intentions (one of our favorite plant-based restaurants) is nearby as well as Trophy Fish (with great seafood and one of our favorite tropical bars in Tampa Bay).

Pinellas Ale Works

1962 1st Ave S, St. Petersburg, FL 33712

Also known as PAW (a nod to the super dog-friendly vibe and fundraising for Pinellas County animal-related charities), Pinellas Ale Works is the next stop on the tour of St. Pete Breweries. Here you’ll find another notable tap room and beer garden as well as a permanent food truck where you can grab something to eat.

With more than 30 beers on tap, you’re guaranteed to find one to please your palate.
