Cheers to the continued growth of Ybor City! Our historic area is about to get a beary good brew hub in the form of BarrieHaus Beer Co.

This isn’t BarrieHaus brewmaster Jim Barrie’s first rodeo. Brewing is in his DNA. The concept is inspired by Barrie’s great-great-great-grandfather Phillip Kling who founded Peninsular Brewing in 1863.

Phillip’s daughter married Louis Schimmel who founded Tivoli Brewing in 1897 in Michigan, according to an Instagram post from BarrieHaus. Tivoli wound up “creating one of the most iconic beers in Michigan during it’s time, the Altes Lager.”

That’s what Ybor’s BarrieHaus will be all about: Damn Fine Lagers.

The new brew hub will be located 1403 E 5th Avenue in the historic area. An opening date is still TBA, but you can follow BarrieHaus on Instagram and Facebook for progress updates.

Need more Ybor City buzz? There’s a massive new vintage market that just celebrated its one year anniversary in the historic neighborhood.

Chill Bros Ice Cream Shop, in addition to serving amazing Cafe Con Leche ice cream, now offers an olive oil scoop with sea salt that is so worth a try.

Metro Inclusive Health, a nonprofit that provides vital programming for the LGBTQ+ community, just broke ground on a brand new facility at the historic German American Club in Ybor.
