  1. Good luck... St pete has a few options, but I can't think of any off hand with good beer selections. Beer Garden on McMullen has a good beer selection

      that is what i was afraid of. any good beach bar with decent food on clearwater beach?

    2. Dunedin is not too far from downtown Clearwater. For a great selection of beers you should head down to House of Beers in Dunedin. http://www.dunedinhob.com/Home_Page.html Main st. in Dunedin has is walking distance and there are plenty of restaurants to choose from

      1. not sure about the beer selection but what about O'Keefe's in Clearwater?

              If that is the case, I would suggest you might try the Dunedin Brewery. They have some good pub style food to go along with some great brews.

                You may want to consider Rumba Island Bar & Grill on Gulf to Bay - Haven't been in awhile but they have at least 10 taps with craft brews as well as bottles and fairly good bar food. They have a big tiki bar outside. Same restaurant group as salt rock, island way et al. Take that fact fwiw. I would call and ask what they have on tap -

                Otherwise, head to Dunedin like Rib Dog said. A few good choices there for beer.

                Dunedin Brewery
                Dunedin House of Beer <-- I don't know if they have food
                Kelly's / Chic a boom room - they have a large beer selection, mostly bottles and 10 taps I think
