BURGERFI, the South Florida-based craft burger and beer restaurant, is in the middle of a series of summer beer pairing events at their Tampa restaurant. Each month, BURGERFI will pair up with a different brewer in the Tampa Bay Area to pair their burgers, hand-cut fries, and incredible desserts with local craft beer.
The first pairing dinner was last week with Clearwater’s Pair O’ Dice Brewing.

Pairings at the event included Lowball Session IPA, Hop Bet Red IPA, and a Vanilla Custard Float made with Little Joe Oatmeal Stout.According to Pair O’ Dice co-owner Julia Rosenthal, diners received a three- course meal peppered with the history of the brewery, a run down of the kinds of beers they specialize in, and even a Pair O’ Dice tulip glass as a souvenir.
BURGERFI worked with 3 Daughters head brewer (and chef) Ty Weaver to put together a 3-course dinner and beer pairing which includes:
- Onion Rings paired with Rod Bender Red Ale (Formerly known as Channel Marker Red)
- Breakfast All Day Burger (burger topped with fried egg, maply syrup, bacon, hash browns, and more) with A Wake Coffee Blonde Ale
- Banana Shake paired with Brown Pelican Dunkelweizen (which sounds incredible, by the way)
Finally, the last event on August 7th will feature Tampa’s very own Coppertail Brewing. Once I get more information, I will let you know the scoop.
The events are being held at BURGERFI at 714 South Howard Ave. in Tampa and cost $15 per dinner. To RSVP for the events above, you can go here for 3 Daughters on July 9th and here for Coppertail on August 7th.
Try to head on out. Between the fantastic burgers and the incredible beer, you won’t be disappointed.
