The family-owned Jug Shop is stocked by longtime beer lovers who know their stuff—formerly headed up by certified cicerone Eric Cripe, and more recently by his brother, Evan. The coolers are filled with new releases by California craft breweries, including Russian River Brewing, 21st Amendment and Stone, as well producers that are farther afield, like Jolly Pumpkin, BrewDog, Avery, Chimay and Deschutes. The shop makes a point to keep a large assortment of sours and Belgian ales. (In addition to beers, the spot is known for its attention to Australian wines.) Stop by on Friday evenings, when the store hosts generous weekly beer tastings.
