After months of brewing and building, St. Petersburg's Green Bench Brewing Co. finally opened to the public on Wednesday afternoon at 3 p.m.
Green Bench won a Best of the Bay last week for turning the 1926 mechanics shop into a fully-fledged brewery (complete with tasting room, outdoor beer garden, fire pit, and growler fill station).
The second brewery in downtown St. Pete (after Cycle Brewing opened in August) is located at 1133 Baum Ave. N., St. Petersburg. They will be open until 10 p.m. Wednesday.
Look for our coverage from tonight's opening later this week.
