The craft brew scene has long been a rising trend across the US, and St. Petersburg in Florida is quickly building a reputation as king of the growing scene. Known as the "Gulp Coast," the St. Pete/Clearwater Craft Beer Trail is a beer-lover's dream with over 30 craft breweries from end to end. Whether you're a beer expert with a refined palate or a newbie looking for a leisurely afternoon, you'll find an array of breweries serving up artisanal beers for every taste. And having the kids in tow doesn't limit your options because St. Pete has another trend on the rise: kid-friendly breweries that are fun for the whole family. From outdoor play areas and games to even hosting birthday parties for kids and letting the dogs join too, these are the best breweries for everyone in your crew.
Named after the founders' daughters, it's no surprise that this brewery is kid-friendly and great for young travellers too. The family story is clear with the famed daughters' handprints found on the wall and an homage to the founder's great-grandfather in one corner. Parents can enjoy sipping and tasting over 25 beers on tap at the bar and tasting room, or choose from 12 ciders for something on the sweeter side. Take your glasses to the outdoor area and grab a seat at one of the wooden tables. Kids will love running around and playing the numerous games offered from hula hooping to giant jenga. Grab a snack from the various food trucks that park by the tables or dance to the live music that creates a lively atmosphere on the weekends. Sophisticated teens might also enjoy checking out the nearby art galleries or shopping for clothes at the pop-up boutiques.
