Over the last month a bunch of new breweries have hit my radar in the Tampa Bay Area. These breweries range from being in the planning stages to being just recently opening their doors to the public! This post is going to focus on one particular brewery opening at the end of this week in Riverview, FL (you can find a list of the other new breweries at the bottom).
Welcome to the community, Leaven Brewing Co.! (pronounced like Heaven but with an "L")
Leaven Brewing Co. is the brain child of KJ and Jillian Lynch and when I say child it is almost literal! They fell in love over a beer, got married at a brewery, and are now only days away from opening their very own brewery on the east side of the Tampa Bay. Not only do they love each other and beer but they also love their local community! It shows as they were more than happy to welcome me to their brewery a few weeks ago to snap some pics and chat with them about their new venture while they were in the midst of renovating their brewery & tap room.
