Green Bench Hours:
Green Bench Brewery near Tropicana Field is named after the some 2,500 green benches that lined Central Avenue in St. Pete during the early 1900s.
At any given time, Green Bench Brewing has over 20 rotating craft beers on tap. Their flagship beer is the Green Bench IPA 6.8% abv: a hoppy American style IPA. I also tried the Demens’ Black IPA 7.3% abv which is also on the hoppy side. In 2016, Green Bench made USA Today’s Readers’ Choice 10 Best new breweries by hitting the list at #10.
The Tap room at Green Bench Brewing Co. has a set of large garage doors that are often open to view the surrounding neighborhood near Tropicana Field. Green Bench also has a large outdoor patio with a covered seating area along with a grass area for chilling out or playing assorted outdoor games.
Green Bench Brewing is definitely one of the best breweries in St. Pete to hang-out at before a Tampa Bay Rays game. The tasting room often adjusts their hours for baseball so it could be a good place to grab a beer after a Tampa Bay Rays game as well.
