Hidden Gems: Meet Amanda Tegan of Hawthorne Bottle Shoppe

Today we’d like to introduce you to Amanda Tegan.

Hi Amanda, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today.
Tegan + I met over a decade ago while working in the craft beer industry.

Both of us were fortunate enough to connect with fans of craft beer all across the nation, and having come from a family of entrepreneurs knew we wanted to build our own dream and share our love of craft beer, wine, and St. Petersburg with the community.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
Opening Hawthorne Bottle Shoppe in Saint Petersburg, FL was a dream and one we both get to live each day.

HBS celebrated five years in February 2022, and each year we have learned from every experience to make it HBS better; beer by beer, wine by wine, party by party.

We’ve been impressed with Hawthorne Bottle Shoppe, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Hawthorne Bottle Shoppe is locally owned + operated by two women in the community: Amanda King + Tegan Foster.

Hawthorne Bottle Shoppe is a neighborhood, social establishment, and market dedicated to the education and enjoyment of craft beer, wine, and locally sourced deli offerings.

More than a market, Hawthorne Bottle Shoppe offers over 300 beers and 75 wines from around the world, eclectic knick-knacks, and an atmosphere that fosters neighborhood camaraderie. Hawthorne Bottle Shoppe- St. Petersburg will be the first of its kind in the area.

HBs is also a destination for lively entertainment; unique parties focused on craft beer, wine + local food trucks + pop-ups. All of us at HBS are also proud of our involvement with local non-profits; Wounded Warriors Abilities Ranch located in Pinellas Park and Pet Pal Animal Shelter located in Saint Petersburg, FL.


  • Retail pricing on bottles of wine + beer.
  • Only a $5.99 corkage fee to consume any bottle of wine on-site.
