If that second date has bad weather, then we'll just have a huge party at Ferg's Sports Bar on May 14th and still give away all of the prizes that our sponsors so generously donated. Thanks again for the support!!!

    Default Tampa Bay Brewing Company with Reef Donkey!!!

    We want to welcome back, Tampa Bay Brewing Company as our title shirt sponsor! Dave and the Doble's have been brewing beer in the local area since 1995. They are also passionate about our sport and have participated in The St. Pete Open, Southern, Suncoast Challenge and other local events to support Reef Donkey APA one of their best beers in the collection. This Dry-hopped American Pale Ale is made using a secret selection of hops to give this nice dry beer a lemon/lime aroma and citrus & slight tropical fruit flavor. Although this brew Hits the classification of an APA, it drinks like a session IPA perfect for a day on the boat fishing the reef. Reef Donkey is slang for the Greater Amberjack game fish which inhabit our coastal wrecks and reefs. We hope to see some large AJ shot during the tournament this year while we enjoy a few cold ones! Take a look at our shirt design this year since you will see TBBC with Reef Donkey featured in our tournament artwork. Thanks again Dave for creating beer to match your hobbies since you have hooked most of the spearfishing community with your amazing award winning beers!!!

    Please visit the Ybor City Brewpub at 1600 East 8th Avenue Ybor City Tampa, FL 33605; Westchase Restaurant 13937 Monroe’s Business Park Tampa, FL 33635 or on line at Tampa Bay Brewing Company | Craft Beer from Tampa, Florida.
