The Craft Beer Cartel is mysterious and shadowy — in that it makes one wonder what the owners do to get such a wide variety of craft beer. It stocks options that many other shops either pass over or simply don't know about — like Destihl's Wild Sour Series, cans from Black Market Brewing Co., bottles from Prairie Artisan Ales, and, of course, cases from brewers across Florida. Opened as a sort of companion project to Riverside Market across the street, the Cartel is a mix between a homebrew shop and package store, holding hundreds of interesting bottles and a selection of to-go taps to fill growlers. It's not really surprising, though, as owners Julian and Lisa Siegel have teamed up with Native Brewing's Adam Fine for this endeavor, and the experience that these veteran beer geeks bring to the operation can be seen in every aspect of the store. You will need some time to peruse, because there is little to gloss over. Every stack and every reach-in holds some unique frothy treasure.
