Today’s Tasting Menu

It kinda seems like the past few months have been the same day over and over again, doesn’t it? And if there was such a thing as a Punxsutawney Phil of Pandemics, we bet he’d be seeing the shadow that predicts six more weeks of shutdown right now. credit: Tampa Theatre

Would beer make it better? We got you, babe.

On Saturday, August 8, Tampa Theatre will host its 9th annual BeerFest in a brand-new way. Groundhop Day will still feature some of the best craft-brewed beers from around Tampa Bay, but instead of coming to Tampa Theatre to try them, we’ll package up a tasting 12-pack for you to take home.

Your Groundhop Day tasting box will include:

  • An assortment of 12 different bottles and cans representing local breweries like Hidden Springs Ale Works, 7venth Sun Brewery, Coppertail Brewing, Cigar City Brewing, and Motorworks Brewing.
  • Two Tampa Theatre tasting glasses
  • A family-sized bag of fresh Tampa Theatre popcorn
  • Other fun Groundhop Day surprises!

Grand sampling boxes are $55 and premium boxes – featuring higher-end brews – are $75 (Theatre Members save $5 off each level). Boxes will be available for pick-up under the Tampa Theatre marquee at 711 N. Franklin Street from 4-7pm Friday, Aug. 7 and 11am-2pm Saturday, Aug. 8.

  • GREYHOUND – Apple TV+ – Early in World War II, an inexperienced U.S. Navy captain must lead an Allied convoy being stalked by Nazi U-boat wolfpacks.
  • Hanna The Series – AmazonHanna is a 15-year-old girl living with Erik, the only man she has ever known, as her father, in a remote part of a forest in Poland. Erik once recruited pregnant women into a CIA program, code name UTRAX, where the children’s DNA was enhanced with 3% wolf in order to create super-soldiers. When Erik falls in love with Johanna, Hanna’s mother, he rescues baby Hanna and they flee. The CIA then orders their on-site agent, Marissa, to shut down the project and eliminate all the babies.
