2017 Buildings Alive! Tour

The Historic Florida Brewing Company Building by Swope, Rodante P.A.

The historic Florida Brewing Company building with help from Swope, Rodante P.A. opened its doors to the Ybor City Museum Society and guests on Thursday March 9, 2017 for the annual architecture hop. These behind the scenes tours were led by firm partner Angela Rodante and provided guests a glimpse into how the building was constructed and some of the challenges faced when the building was renovated. The Cuban themed evening featured authentic Torticas de Moron, craft beer from local favorite Rock Brothers Brewing, and a soundtrack of smooth Latin inspired music.
