today i had a peak beer experience at pegs. i drove down from orlando and arrived before 11:30 on a saturday, so i wandered around the beach and antique shops counting the minutes. then i hung outside the gate for 10 minutes with my notebook like a creep. finally i wandered in and sat down on the patio. i was greeted almost immediatley by asst. brewer and server christina and ordered what turned out to be one of the best beers ive ever had. the sun was beating down on me and lizards scampered at my feet. the foliage embraced me from all sides and conversation obsessed with beer and brewing began to spew forth from my mouth where christina promptly responded. i had some chips and salsa to prolong my experience and the chipotle cream dip had me addicted. i ran through their roster of beers and devoured the sweet bean burrito. christina gave me a brief tour of the grounds and it was difficult not to get emotional as the experience continued to become better and better. i left laughing to myself at my dumb luck for this place turning out as good as i thought it would be and then some. i may never rate a perfect ’5’ beer but this place is indeed perfect for me. i would fly in just to hang out here and then fly home. go to pegs immediately, i cant imagine what you would be disappointed by.
I want to move within a mile of this place, so I can walk home drunk every night. Within walking distance of the beach, Pegs has amazing food and beer at very reasonable prices. While they have a small, but nice bottle and draft selection, you want their beers, which are unfiltered and truly amazing. I love Cigar City, but I will always make sure to stop at Peg’s, when I’m in town.
Awesome place tucked away in what seems to be a little hippy village. Lots of outdoor seating, great family owned vibe. Excellent beer on tap. They had 3 of their own beers on tap a few guest taps and a lot of bottles. Service was friendly and welcoming. The bar area is small, but perfect. I expected good beer, but the food was out of this world. I recommend the tuna tacos. Unreal good! (Tip: check in with foursquare and get free chips and salsa)
What a gem ! Cozy, friendly, lively "cantina" with a splash of beach shack. Plenty of outdoor seating for the warmer months. Had two of the three house beers (among others) which were excellent. Altogether there were 15 drafts and ~70 bottled on the beer list- all amazing, flavorful stuff too. Small menu, but our meals were great. One of the best beer experiences I’ve had in forever. Peg’s is a lot of fun. Go there !

The wife and I went to Peg’s Cantina about three weeks ago after receiving a few recommendations from the BA forums. It goes without saying that we were not disappointed. The beer selection was excellent for such a small "hole in the wall" place. Their house brews were very solid and their craft beer selection was phenomenal. We weren’t hungry so we didn’t order entrees but the chips and salsa were good. I would highly recommend Peg’s to anyone traveling to the Tampa/St. Petersburg area.
EDIT: We returned in November and ate at the Cantina. The food was good (very good for bar food). Nothing extravagant but definitely worth trying.
this place is a must see if you are in the area. The beer is outstanding I had the IPA one of best I every had in my life. The service was great the server was friendly and knew her beers. Food was great love the burritos. Again a must stop, I wish they had growlers love to take the beer home.
Very nice restaurant/tasting room. Food was excellent, very fresh and a unique twist on mexican food. Beers were very good too. Their Imperial Stout was a 9 out of 10; could taste bourbon aging in it. Nice part of St. Pete just to walk around in if you are from out of town. Have about 15 on tap beers.
