Tampa Bay’s First and Largest Fully Off-Leash Dog Park and Bar

Come enjoy a combined 14,000+ square feet of A/C indoor play space, and a fully fenced outdoor dog park with a huge selection of beer, wine, and seltzers at Two Shepherds Taproom!

Your pup’s play paradise has arrived in Tampa, FL! With over 14,000 square feet of space, Two Shepherds Taproom has earned the title of Tampa’s best fully off-leash A/C indoor/outdoor dog park and bar (21+ yrs old to visit). Among their outstanding and caring staff, their facilities offer a 4,000+ sq ft indoor, air-conditioned dog park and a large, 10,000+ sq ft fenced-in outdoor dog park with specialized K-9 Grass artificial turf specifically designed for dogs and a newly installed splash pad


Ross and Pat opened Two Shepherds Taproom in June of 2020 to create a space where dog owners could grab a beer and socialize without leaving their best friend at home. You can feel at ease letting your pup run free, safely, while you try their extensive craft beer selection among other beverages. The real inspiration for the Two Shepherds Taproom brand comes from their fun-loving German Shepherd, Hobbes, and their eager-to-please Australian Shepherd, Cooper. There is a strong possibility you will meet one of these two friendly faces when you visit.

Drinks/local vendors:

Specifically for the humans, Two Shepherds offers 20 rotating taps and a robust selection of craft beer, wine, and seltzers! Local favorites include their own house Two Shepherds Lager, Raspberry Lemonade Cider by 3 Daughters Brewing, and selections from Coppertail Brewing, King State, and 81Bay Brewing. There are also plenty of non-alcoholic options as well.

Events:

You will always find something going on at Two Shepherds Taproom! From simply letting your dog play while you relax or attending one of their many monthly events, there is always a good time to visit any day of the week! Stop in for Trivia Tuesdays, Bingo on Thursdays, Bark n’ Brunch with bottomless mimosas on Sundays, Breed-specific meetups, Yappy Hours, Drag Queen Bingo once a month, and more! Check their calendar on their website or Facebook Page for specifics. All of these events are, of course, dog-friendly if not dog-centric, and often support local nonprofits.

Doggy birthday parties have grown more popular and why wouldn’t we want to celebrate (or spoil) our four-legged friends? When it comes to celebrating pup birthdays, there’s no better place than Two Shepherds. Their customizable party packages include reserved tables, drinks, decorations, doggie cakes, and more! 

Upcoming Event:

Join Two Shepherds Taproom for their Two Year Anniversary Party on June 18th from 4pm-9pm sponsored by 3 Daughters Brewing.

Come celebrate Two Shepherds Taproom turning two! To help you commemorate the occasion, they will have live music, raffles, free samples, swag, and more! Enjoy a photo booth set up to get your picture taken with your pup, and to top it all off, local favorite Salty Paws Dog Ice Cream will be there with their delicious dog ice cream for your pup. For the humans, veteran-owned Liberty Smokehouse will be serving up their delicious meals specifically crafted for the occasion.

Do I need a dog to come?

Nope! Everyone (21+ yrs old) is welcome with or without a dog.

Get your paws on a pint and enjoy all our human activities!


*Be sure to register your pup prior to visiting and upload vet records showing proof of up-to-date rabies, distemper (DHPP/DHLPP), and bordetella vaccinations!

TEAM ADDO kicks off Heroes Welcome Party and 5th Annual All Heroes Open Charity Fishing Tournament

 9/22/21 | Weston Hucknall, Kathryn Donadio

 

TEAM ADDO is a nonprofit founded by James Boggs, with the mission and goal to inspire and encourage others to make the world around them better. The non-profit focuses on honoring the men and women who sacrifice for our freedom and raises awareness for children with special needs. They include and welcome people from all backgrounds, veterans and civilians alike; active duty, prior service, family and friends of veterans, and all community members who want to make a difference. 

 

TEAM ADDO’s purpose is to enrich the lives of others and ultimately serve our fellow brothers and sisters. They accomplish this by investing in and hosting meaningful and impactful events. From these events, they are able to touch the lives of so many children who are in the fight for their lives and pay back the debt of gratitude to our nation’s veterans and their families.

 

Most recently, they held their 4th Annual Tampa Bay Throw Down at Armature Works, overlooking the Hillsborough River in downtown Tampa. The charity cornhole tournament has proven successful three years in a row, and 2021 was no different. Teams came from all around to mingle, enjoy food and drinks, and participate in three competitive rounds of cornhole. The benefiting charities were Shriners Hospitals for Children and their very own Tampa Bay Veteran’s Closet. The Veteran’s Closet initiative partners with JB Addo Clothiers to provide a custom made-to-measure suit, as well as philanthropic professional photographers to provide high-quality professional headshots free to any transitioning or already transitioned service member or spouse. Another popular, yearly event includes the All Heroes Open Charity Golf Classic. 

 

TEAM ADDO is excited to announce the return of Tampa Bay’s number one fishing tournament, the All Heroes Open Charity Fishing Tournament! This year it will be hosted by Dealers Auction Xchange and held at the beautiful Westshore Yacht Club in Tampa, FL. The tournament will feature 60 boats and over 200 anglers. 

 

“I’m thankful to be able to hold this event to honor our nation's veterans. You can only get so much from virtual communications, there’s so much power and healing in connecting and reconnecting the community, and getting people back together, face to face and hand in hand.” - James Boggs

 

The Heroes Welcome Party kicks off this year’s tournament Friday evening, September 24th at Armature Works, hosted by Your Auction Tampa Bay. Everyone is welcome to attend, and tickets include all you can eat and drink with proceeds once again supporting Shriners Healthcare for Children Florida and Tampa Bay’s Veterans Closet. Special guest speaker and Vietnam veteran, retired Sergeant First Class Sammy Davis among other honored guests will make for a night to remember. This event will bring together over 360 people, including veterans, active duty, families, kids, and spouses as well as civilians within the community. “These are your vets. They are business owners, teachers, doctors, and more” says Boggs.
