The Flying Pig Taphouse is the realization of many craft beer drinkers’ dreams, especially those of Rebecca and Joe.
What happens when a couple loves beer, travels around the world sampling as they go, and has friends that encourage them to open a bar? They tell them “No way, when pigs fly!”. In 2012, when they decided to give up their careers and open a bar, naming the bar was a no-brainer and “The Flying Pig Taphouse” was born.
The concept is simple, craft beer and a bite to eat. Fifty rotating taps and four coolers of bottles from around Florida, the U.S. and the world will offer something for everyone. The menu consists of appetizers and sandwiches in case you get a little hungry. For those with an interest in oenology, only the most fun wines by the glass will be offered, nothing pretentious here.
The Flying Pig Taphouse is located at 1584 Central Avenue in the Fusion 1560 project. With the proximity to downtown St. Petersburg and Tropicana Field, there are no excuses not to stop by, sit on the patio, play a game of pool, meet new friends at the community table, or sidle up to the bar where everyone (will eventually) know your name.
