While Dissent Craft Brewing and taproom is technically in St. Petersburg, it’s about 4 miles north of the other 12 craft breweries in St. Petersburg and takes a bit more of an effort to visit. With that being said, their beers are outstanding and worth going out of the way.
Dissent has a 3 1/2 bbl brewing system with 20 craft beers on tap covering a variety of styles. I started off with the Breakfast Porter 5.3% abv. I then moved up to the Mexican Chocolate Cake 10% abv which was aged in Tequila barrels with notes of cinnamon, cocoa nibs, vanilla and Mexican peppers. Dissent has 5oz tasters for $2 and 12oz to 16oz drafts for $4 to $5 for their non barrel aged craft beers. Dissent Craft Brewing also has Barrel Aged Bottling Program with new releases every 45 days.
Dissent Craft Brewing has a $1 off industry night (restaurant and service) on Tuesdays and $1 off HERO (hospital, emergency, rescue, officer, & military) night on Wednesdays.
