Exit 24 off of I-275, several blocks west on 22nd Ave at 29th street; lots of parking in the rear. Just across the street from "the worlds largest record store".

Mazzaro's is far more than just a place to grab a few beers, and any culinary connoisseur would be foolish to pass it by.

They make very large, and very fresh and tasty, sandwiches for ridiculously low prices. But they also have a huge selection of fresh meats, sausages/bratwursts/etc., cured meats, cheeses from around the world, fresh breads, and so on.

They have a wide variety of wine, and a well-versed sales staff (all of which, incidentally, seem to be very friendly).

There's not that much beer with only four cooler doors worth, but the selection is well varied with a fair amount of interesting items, and I'd be happy to choose from it any day.

I like to stop there on my way to St. Pete's to grab a few sandwiches and a beer or two for the beach (no alcohol or glass allowed, I know), but I certainly wouldn't be adverse to enjoying the same on their covered patio.

As stated, you'd be foolish to pass it by if you've got any interest in culinary specialty items, and a fair selection of nicely chosen beers (also good prices, no gouging).

Huge cold beer cooler in an Italian deli/market. Approximately 100 plus beers from around the State, Country, World. Large outdoor patio in the back, under roof. Order a fresh made sandwich at the counter, grab a single beer, and have a relaxing and inexpensive lunch. One room is nothing but wine and cheese. Big coffee bar inside for dining also. Vibe is elbow to elbow crowded NY deli, so get a cold one and head to the patio!

This is a gigantic Italian market in St. Pete. They have about three coolers full of singles, focused on craft beer and crafty imports. There's nothing earth shattering here but a very solid line up (which includes available CCB brews) which seems to be expanding. Although I didn't talk to anyone directly, I heard an employee giving solid advice to other customers.

There's a huge patio where you can drink your beer and eat your sandwich from the deli. Definitely the type of place you can spend a very long weekend lunch drinking solid beer. Great for families.

I don't think Mazzaro's has quite reached beer destination status but if you are out for lunch and you want have some killer food with a solid beer, you can't do much better in St. Pete than Mazzaro's.
