Tampa is a beer lover’s paradise. We are replete with some of the top breweries in the country, and our bottle shoppe’s are basically expansive beer libraries. One Tampa shop was singled out as one of the best in America. Jug and Bottle received glowing praise from Green Bench Brewing’s head brewer Krystopher Johnson in Wine Enthusiast.

“It’s an awesome shop that has something for everyone,” said Johnson in an interview with Wine Enthusiast. “They have a great selection of packaged beer, wine, vegan food and some beers on tap available for growler fills.”

Jug and Bottle meticulously curates its beer selection

Wine Enthusiast assembled its top beer shops list by reaching out to beer experts across the nation. According to the editors, a great beer shop does not have endless choice. The ones that stand out, according to the beer pros from around the country who Wine Enthusiast spoke to for this list, are the shops that pay attention to having a diverse selection, offer proper cooler space and keep an eye on freshness dates.

Jug & Bottle Dept. carries a curated offering of craft beers, natural wines, and speciality products at their shop in Seminole Heights. They frequently host sampling/tasting nights inside their space, so make sure to follow them on Facebook for the latest news on upcoming events.


Jug and Bottle is located at 6203 N Florida Avenue
