Independent “Bieres, Vins, Music, & Thought” is our mantra. We strive to bring rare and unique beers and wines from all over the world, and we offer tasty European Café fare.

 We have 14 taps that are constantly rotating, to ensure that we have a great selection of styles to choose from at all times.

 Our bottle selection is also impressive – and you will find many options that are not widely available around town. Our staff is extremely knowledgeable, and second to none in personality!

 Locals flock to our outdoor biergarten for our Sunday music series, or one of our many music, beer or social events.

 We pride ourselves on the high standard we set for beer bars in the Tampa Bay area – often imitated, but never duplicated; don’t miss a stop at The Indie!
