From the minds of TableSeide Restaurant Group comes the latest craft beer and pizza destination on the gulf coast: Oak and Stone, a neighborhood-style beer and pizza joint with a modern twist—self-serve draft beer and wine. The bar and restaurant, celebrating two successful years at its original location in University Park, Florida, will make its St. Petersburg debut this December.

The new Oak and Stone will use the same high-tech self-serve beverage dispense technology,iPourIt, as seen at its original location. The bar wall of tech-savvy taps will house 62 different varieties of craft beer and wine, with a focus on local beers from nearby brewers like JDubs, Calusa, and Big Top.

TableSeide owner, Joe Seidensticker, says, “It’s an upgrade. It will have everything the original Oak and Stone has, with new bells and whistles, like more taps, a bigger bar, and more TVs.”

Joining St. Petersburg’s downtown dining and nightlife district, the new Oak and Stone is located right outside the Jannus Live music venue. Its close proximity to area colleges, art galleries, museums and other cultural centers make it a top destination for locals and visitors alike.

“We’re literally in the heart of the downtown district, right on Central Avenue. It’s a great throughway for people coming from the waterfront and downtown. The location is amazing,” said Seidensticker.

Opening a second location was a natural progression for Oak and Stone, whose mission is to introduce more people to craft beer in a fun and friendly way.

“There’s this intimidation in craft beer. We wanted to figure out a way to make it a little more social and approachable for people that don’t really drink craft beer on a daily basis,” said Seidensticker. “iPourIt gets people trying a lot, talking a lot, and interacting with each other.”

Oak and Stone will join the downtown district in St. Petersburg in December 2017 at: 24 2nd St. N., St. Petersburg, FL.
