Rapp Brewing Hours:
I like Rapp! Well… the brewery anyway. Rapp Brewing Company and tap room is a nano brewery in Seminole, Florida that covers all three bases: good beer, good service, and good prices. Rapp Brewing Company is my favorite brewery in Tampa Bay mostly because they do the little things I like and don’t do the little things that annoy me. Rapp has a variety of excellent craft beer with a variety of specials and don’t do annoying things like have cocky employees or overcharge for a beer.
Rapp Brewing Company has up to 40 small batch craft beers rotating on tap at any giving time with a wide variety of styles. Rapp’s styles include Sour, Tart & Funky (Sours & Gose); Belgians (Dark Strong Ale); Ales (Scotch, Session, & Hefe); Dark & Roasty (Porter & Brown Ale); Hoppy & Bitter (Pale Ales); Lagers (Pilsner, Kolsch, & Bock) along with Experimental, Chocolate/Dessert, and Barrel Aged Beers. I drank the Lemon Cream Donut which is a Sour – Berliner Weisse and their Chocolate Peanut Butter Stout both of which are favorites among the regulars at Rapp Brewing.
Most of the beer at Rapp Brewing is $6 for either a pint, tulip, snifter, or goblet. Flights are $10 for 4 5oz tasters, $15 for a flight of 6 or $22 for a flight of 9. The price is the price. One of the annoying things that Rapp doesn’t do is tack on the 7% Pinellas County sales tax to the listed price.
Rapp Brewing has a happy hour or as they refer to it, “rappy hour” on Monday & Tuesday from 3PM till 6PM which entails $1 off all drafts. One better… if your in the service industry (must show proof), you can enjoy 1/2 off beers on Monday and Tuesday from open till close. For other occasional offers and specials, check out Rapp Brewing’s Face Book Page.
The thing I liked the most about Rapp Brewing Company was the staff. I felt welcomed immediately. Ryan, the bartender was more than willing to to give me a bit of an education on the craft beers pouring at Rapp and I also had the opportunity to rap with Candy Rapp, the tap room manager who can be both informative and entertaining.
Rapp Brewing also has food trucks on a daily base and sometimes incorporate the food with particular beers or specials. Rapp Brewing has a few table games like foosball and and ping pong.
