The Tampa area has become a great place for craft beers. With big names like Cigar City, Coppertail, Tampa Bay Brewing and 3 Daughters, tucked away just south of Tampa in Bradenton is another brewery that is quietly producing some good solid beers, Motorworks Brewing. With a lager, IPA and coffee porter in their core lineup, also included is a red ale named “Rollcage.” This beer has a malt and caramel smell that is also incorporated in the taste. A good hop flavor helps transition this beer to a dry and bitter finish. With an ABV of 6.5% and IBU of 50, this beer is great for beginning your evening of hanging out with friends for the night.
