NEW WORLD BREWERY’s 28th CELEBRATION!
Opening in Ybor City in 1995, this establishment has been one of the mainstays for the Tampa live music scene. After the pandemic and losing their Ybor location to the continual redevelopment of that area, New World relocated to 810 E Skagway in Sulphur Springs, just a short Uber to the north of the Heights! Their new home is bigger and offers great food & 2 stages featuring the top line entertainment we have come to expect.
This weekend’s celebrations starts out Friday with DJ Gabe Echazabal and Fast Fashion – The Depeche Mode Experience. The Saturday line up are local acts Lauris Vidal, Jeff Brawer, Greg Milo & SG Wood and features a high energy Allman Brothers review Steeln’ Peaches! Sunday will start off with americana artist Jamie Thomas & feature Frankie Rose & Romeo Blu!
