Jug & Bottle Dept., a Seminole Heights newbie, opened its doors to the Tampa neighborhood Saturday afternoon.
The cozy shop at 6201 N. Florida Ave. offers local and hard-to-find craft beer alongside a collection of wine. Specialty coffees, teas, cheese and gourmet condiments are sourced from vendors on both sides of the bay as well as out of state.
Patrons may snag growler fills from Jug & Bottle, too. While the beer offerings rotate, Florida beer makers like 7venth Sun Brewery, Barley Mow Brewing Company and Funky Buddha Brewery are included on the initial lineup. Commune + Co. and Mother Kombucha are available in growlers as well.
Among the store's other highlights are locally made items from The Chill Dill and Belle Fleur Studio, along with products created exclusively for Jug & Bottle such as beer-inflected vegan soap from DeShawn Marie Handmade Soap and The Urban Canning Company's mead cherries.
