In the last two years our craft beer scene has really stepped up its game. I don’t mean just the breweries that have opened, but the selection of brands at bottle shops is night and day. It’s very exciting.

"They do a great job with their beers, running the gamut from very light sessionable beers, like Berliner weisses, all the way up to rich porters. I have yet to taste a clunker from them."

Our beer scene has grown amazingly over the last several years. I moved back to the Tampa Bay Area from Portland, OR. At the time there were more than 20 breweries within the city limits of Portland. Right now in the Tampa metropolitan area, we have at least 27 and probably 10 more being planned or have opened that I’m just not aware of.

Jug & Bottle Department

"This is a store that sells great craft beer, boutique wines, cheeses and charcuterie. Local grocery store selections are often lacking, and prior to them opening, the only choice in the neighborhood were package shops. It's probably the only bottle shop on the west coast of Florida where you can grab a bottle of Malbec while listening to the Heroine Sheiks."
