Now Open: Capitol Beer House

Capitol Beer House, which features 32 taps and more in bottles, recently opened on Cleveland Street in downtown Clearwater.

It seems Tony Starova is trying to reignite downtown Clearwater one empty storefront at a time.

No sooner had the Green Organix restaurant closed on Cleveland Street that Starova was looking to expand his business ventures.

He has operated Tony's Pizzeria downtown for years and now, Capitol Beer House, a craft and specialty beer bar, is open next to it on the 400 block of Cleveland Street.

The beer bar features 32 taps and more in bottles.

A grand opening celebration this week featured music from the Black Honkeys and a few hundred fans.

"(Downtown's) coming up," Starova said. "You just have to believe."

Sounds good. Strange though since most Scientologists who are around downtown, hardly drink alcohol. Hopefully he will pull in the general public with his excellent pizza and now beer. Wise if he is earning a living to put his kids through college and not a cult. It's good to know where our bucks go. Good luck and good wishes to you.
