c. 1949 Soft Opens

The Seminole Heights neighborhood grows richer with great food and craft beer by the week. Mortar and Pestle, Trip’s Diner, Seminole Heights Wine Bar, and a new distillery are just a few of the anticipated projects set to open in the next year.

Situated next to Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo, c. 1949 is the latest arrival to bring a bevy of craft brews to the area. The craft beer bar features 30 beers and 3 ciders on drafts, and even more bottles and cans. Visitors will be able to enjoy brews from Green Bench, Swamp Head, Barley Mow, Cycle Brewing, Motorworks, 7th Sun, Cigar City, Sonoma, Coppertail, Hidden Springs, Tampa Bay Brewing Company and St. Somewhere, among others.

c. 1949 is advertised as the perfect place to catch the game and unwind with some of the area’s best brews. The exterior artwork was done by Chad Mize. They’re currently in their soft opening phase. The spot opens at 4pm at 6905 North Orleans Avenue. Visit their website for a full list of beers. Follow them on Twitter and Instagram for updated details.
