A new brewery is coming to Tampa from one of the region’s most prolific brewers. Common Dialect Beerworks is opening this January at 5023 N Florida Ave, bringing yet another great beer spot to the bustling corridor.
The dog and family-friendly brewery is the joint project of a husband and wife team, Mike and Kendra Coze, who have hope it will be a place “where people can come to the table and have shared experiences and find commonalities with one another.”
And drink beer, of course. Good beer, at that, based on Mike’s reputation and experience. Like so many of the region’s brewers, he got his start as a home brewer, and he quickly rose through the ranks after honing his craft. Before beginning work on opening Common Dialect, Mike was the head brewer at the massive Brew Hub facility in Lakeland, where he spent nearly five years contract brewing some of the area’s most popular beers and sending them into distribution, on tap and in stores throughout central Florida.
However, Mike and Kendra have been dreaming about this new project for nearly six years. Common Dialect is opening next-door to Health Mutt, a popular pet supply store and grooming shop that Kendra has owned for 10 years. The new brewery is a combination of both their passions, bringing together good beer, good dogs, and great times with even better people.
The duo has created a colorful and welcoming space inside the brewery, where they plan to offer a well-rounded tap list including IPAs, lagers, stouts, sours, seltzers and more. Common Dialect also said guests can expect a rotating roster of food trucks bringing good eats to the area.
Owners say they anticipate a January 13 grand opening. Stay tuned for updates and follow them on Instagram for more.
