Tarpon River Brewing

The idea was born in 2013, when founders Julien and Lisa Siegel — proprietors of craft beer bar mecca Riverside Market and Craft Beer Cartel — partnered with Native Brewing founder Adam Fine and TRP's Tim Petrillo. The team originally planned to name their project New River, but a trademark conflict led to Tarpon River Brewing, a marriage of Petrillo's Tarpon Bend and the Siegels' Riverside Market. The brewhouse was constructed in the early 1920s as the Snyder Stables, which housed the horses that paved the roads that helped urbanize the city. As a result, the taproom offers a distinct, Old Florida design that includes its own 1,000-square-foot "house" — a perfect setting to enjoy the brewery's in-house food and beer. Here, you'll find a wide range of pub-grub favorites, from a "Big Ass" pretzel with beer cheese to Buffalo fried cauliflower to a PB&J Burger to fried fish tacos. Pair your meal with a beer from any of the brewery's 16 taps.
