Tucked away just outside of downtown St. Petersburg is a hidden gem with some very good beer – Flying Boat Brewing Co. In this segment, head brewer Tyler Singletary takes us on a journey. We submerge ourselves into the city’s past, drink it’s beer in the present on our way to guiding you to pay this brewery a visit in your future. May all of their good beers that we have consumed in our history be repeated.
If we don’t respect our history, then we’re certainly doomed to repeat it. Fortunately for us, we have a history of interviewing kick ass people who share our passion for beer and Flying Boat Brewing Co’s Tyler Singletary is no exception. Time to open up your history book and learn a thing or two about St Pete over a cold one. We suggest a Batch 100 or Denmen’s Landing Russian Imperial Stout, but that’s just us.
In the last segment with Christina & Billy from 4 The Love of Libations we talk everything we can think of: sports, Star Wars, Lightning hockey, death pools and even some past interviews. It was a pleasure combining our show with them and recommend you check them out online!
Christina & Billy from 4 The Love of Libations brought some NEIPAs and so did we… and then we drank them on the air (I know, total shocker!) in a blind taste test. Our local Good Liquid Brewing went up against Sam Adams, Sierra Nevada and Lord Hobo. Curious to find out who won?
Well, we took Christina and Billy from 4 The Love of Libations up on their offer and did our own version of a ménage à trois… podcast style. She calls it a “Ponage A Trois” and we’re calling it a “Podcast A Trois.” Either way it was huge fun, as expected!

Each year, the Brew Bus brewery converts into a 9-hole mini-golf course to raise money for a local charity. This year they have chosen to partner with us, the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation, and we couldn’t be more excited. The National Pediatric Cancer Foundation is a nonprofit organization dedicated to funding research to eliminate childhood cancer. Their focus is to find less toxic, more targeted therapies by partnering with leading hospitals nationwide.
This year’s event features an extra special addition. Brew Bus has partnered with Cigar City Brewing and NPCF to brew a Gooseberry & Grapefruit IPA to raise money for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. All proceeds raised from this beer will go directly to the NPCF to fund research. This beer can be enjoyed on draft and in six-packs at Brew Bus Brewing, Cigar City Brewing and at select locations throughout the Tampa Bay area.
“We are excited to partner with two great breweries in Tampa Bay to create this beer and continue to raise funds and awareness for pediatric cancer” says Dave Frazer, CEO of The National Pediatric Cancer Foundation.
Over the last two years Brew Bus has been able to raise over $10,000 with their Putts and Pints charity event. This year, their goal is raise an additional $10,000 for the NPCF, bringing their total funds raised with the Putts and Pints brand to $20,000 in 3 years.
