Wine Enthusiast Magazine, a national spirits publication, gave some love to a local mainstay this week.

The magazine deemed Seminole Heights’ Jug + Bottle as one of the “Best Beer Shops of 2023"—and it's the only Tampa Bay shop that made the cut.

“It’s an awesome shop that has something for everyone,” Khristopher Johnson—head brewer and co-owner of Green Bench Brewing Co.—told Wine Enthusiast, “They have a great selection of packaged beer, wine, vegan food and some beers on tap available for growler fills.”

"Humbled to be rubbing elbows with some amazing bottle shops on this list," Jug + Bottle posted on social media in response to Wine Enthusiast's shout out.

Located at 6203 N Florida Ave. in the heart of Seminole Heights, Jug + Bottle has been dishing out specialty beers, wines and other beverages since 2015.

The only other Florida-based bottle shop to make Wine Enthusiast's “Best Beer Shops of 2023” list is Miami’s Union Beer Store.

Other local shops that recently received accolades from Wine Enthusiast include St. Pete’s CellarMasters and Hawthorne Bottle Shoppe, which landed on its “Best Beer Shops in the U.S.” list last year.

Jug + Bottle—which is also the home to vegan kitchen 3 Dot Dash—is open in Seminole Heights from 11 a.m.-9 p.m. Sunday-Thursday and 11 a.m.-10 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays.
