St Petersburg has seen a proliferation of craft breweries over the last few years, and Green Bench is in the center of it all. The Edge district has grown around it, with new bars, restaurants, and shops.
— Restaurateur Kevin Lane

2012 was the first year microbreweries were allowed to create and sell their craft beer in St. Pete, having been banned from manufacturing malt beverages in 2010. Today the craft beer industry in the area is thriving and by the time you finish reading this paragraph a new brewery will most likely have opened.

Avid Brew Company

Hidden in the back of a hydroponic growing supply shop, they have an itty-bitty tasting room where you can sample their home grown brews. They also sell distilling and brewing supplies.

Pro Tip: “Our best kept local secret. It’s the smallest brewery in town and it’s in the back of a grow shop. They make killer beers and you can get growlers.” (Chef George and Debbie Sayegh)
