TBBW 2022 Event: Shakespeare on Tap at Independent Bar & Cafe Tampa

Tampa Bay Beer Week 2022 is in full swing and Independent Bar & Cafe Tampa (5016 N Florida Ave | Tampa, Florida) is covering the mid-week action with Shakespeare on Tap at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, March 9.

If you are looking for something a little different to get into this Beer Week, the Independent is bringing a bit of culture and theater to shake up the usual mix of tap takeovers, beer dinners and festivals. Shakespeare on Tap will feature “talented local theater actors in a tipsy one-night only production of Shakespeare skits” with performances scheduled at 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. Oh . . . and you best believe the Independent will have an amazing draft and bottle selection worthy of Tampa Bay Beer Week.

Shakespeare on Tap is free to attend (no cover) and is pay as you go when it comes to beer and food. So, break out those puffy pants and ruffle shirts, and raise a glass to The Bard at the Independent Tampa on Wednesday, March 9. Prost!
