Bay Cannon


On Sunday night, Dec. 4, 2023, a heartbreaking shooting on Main Street left a woman dead. This shooting resulted in near misses and collateral damage at Bay Cannon Brewery. Out of an abundance of caution and concern for the safety of our patrons and staff, effective immediately, we have decided to close the Bay Cannon taproom (2106 W Main St) indefinitely for on-site service.
Despite our best efforts and consistent communication with the City of Tampa surrounding current and potential issues, safety remains a major concern for the residents and businesses of Main Street. We have been, and will continue to be, ambassadors for West Tampa and its residents, but we cannot in good conscience knowingly put our patrons and staff in harm’s way.
We understood the challenges of our neighborhood when we chose to open the brewery here, and have worked closely with the City of Tampa, the Tampa Police Department and our neighbors to move towards improvement. We hope those we’ve worked so closely with will take action and help find real solutions so that businesses like ours can safely re-open.
We will continue to produce and offer our products online and through wholesale. We are working around the clock to implement local delivery and regional/national shipping as quickly as possible. We will work to find adequate security so we can implement To-Go orders and Private Events. Thank you for your continued patronage and we hope to be pouring drafts on-site again soon.
