The property that just a month ago housed a St. Petersburg brewery is on the market.

The property is at 11776 11th Ave. N. and was the home of The Brutalist/Temple of Beer until last month and, before that, the Flying Boat Brewing Co. 

The 10,747-square-foot building is listed for $2.7 million.

According to Bridgewater Commercial Real Estate, the St. Pete firm listing the property, it is fully built out for another microbrewery and comes with a taproom, three entertainment rooms, a covered patio and a larger outdoor space. There is also an office and conference room, a brew room with two large walk-in coolers and two loading docks.

The property is in between the Historic Kenwood and Uptown neighborhoods, about 1 mile from Tropicana Field and less than 2 miles from downtown St. Petersburg.

The Flying Boat first opened in the space 2017 and sold itself to the Brutalist in 2022.

While the brewery has closed and the building is for sale, The Brutalist is not completely gone.

In an Oct. 15 Facebook post announcing the closing, it says that “we are pivoting to a more agile approach” and will continue to put out the beers it’s known for.

“Our vision here at The Brutalist was always to create a space that was unique to St. Pete and even Florida,” the post says.

“It was a concept that was always intended to be an artistic approach to beer. On every level. From the juice itself, to the branding and interior design of the temple. We wanted to build a place that felt harsh in some ways, and even softer in others. We’re so proud of what we’ve accomplished in these two short years.”
