The Pint and Brew is a great local pub tucked away in a small shopping plaza in Palm Harbor. But don’t let this little place fool you – their beers and food pack a lot of punch!
This is the place where beer enthusiasts can come to sample quality beer from small Tampa Bay craft brewery’s. Inside, you’ve got an industrial feel, with dark floors, rustic red oak bar, and metal chevron plating on the walls. Their focus is certainly the beer with a wide variety of local and unique beers and ciders, but they’ve also got free popcorn, shuffleboard, and several TVs to keep you occupied while you’re there. They also host tons of different like trivia and bingo throughout the week.
Their kitchen also serves up some mean grilled cheese and mac and cheese dishes. Limited menu, but do you really need anything other than that? No. On our last visit, I went for the Mushroom Melt – with Cremini mushrooms, onion, garlic, thyme, truffle oil and Gruyere cheese on sourdough bread. J. went for the New American – BBQ brisket, provolone cheese, Dijon mustard, and Gherkin pickles on sourdough bread. They were unlike any grilled cheese sandwich we’d ever had. All the flavors melded so well together and made your mouth water for the next bite.
And because we couldn’t NOT get mac and cheese, we also shared The Guava – a blend of Gruyere and sharp cheddar cheeses, topped with pulled pork and guava BBQ sauce. The mac and cheese came out piping hot and bubbly, the guava BBQ sauce adding that slightly sweet element to the salty pork.
It’s that perfect low-key atmosphere for a chill night out, without sacrificing on the quality of beer you’re getting. So next time you’re in the mood for some good beer, good food, and catching up with good friends – make your way over to The Pint and Brew.
