What a great little beer gem hidden away in Riverside, which is quickly becoming the heart for good beer in Jacksonville. I have been hearing about this place for several months, and decided I must check it out during my search for Cigar City beers. As soon as you walk in the door, turn left and BAM - there are the beers. Two aisles including end caps dedicated to craft and micro beers. You won't find any Bud Light in this place!!! I did find the CCB beer I was looking for, plus a great selection of just about everything the distributors are bringing to Jax. The fact that it's in Riverside only helps it's cause. Check this place out on your way to Kickbacks or Bold City. You don't be disappointed.

Very good health/natural store with an impressive selection of beers. Very nice collection of imports, as well as domestic craft.
The last time I visited, they had every major brewery available, as well as a large collection of sour beers from Belgium, the USA, and other places. Unfortunately, some beers that are available in the west are not available in the east, and the same applies to the north and the south. But still, lots of choices and top quality. Very good quality beers.

Nov 4 visit: its down to about 3 rows now to mostly bombers and singles. prices are near the same as TW. Belgian bomber selection is damn good. They got allot buery stuff also. Still this just a health food store. no BMC and still its about 1/3 of TW has. Not service really unless you ask. with only 3 rows I mean who are we kidding here. why is there a vibe for a store? quality I guess they beer is not spoiled????
Aug 2013 visit: mostly a bomber store now. still a decent selection for riverside and small space.
the folks that setup the beer side are all gone sadly and it shows.
Ok I think I was a tad harsh, readjustment of my numbers.
9/5/2010 visit: Wow its a must visit in town now, if your can afford it, I could not but spent 40 bucks anyway, LOL
Better selection of the rare high end stuff, better than TW by a large margin. HIGHLY recommend, plus its near kickbacks and BCB, riverside is the BEER MECCA for j-ville now!
I have to thank the beerjunto web site for the nice info on some super rares (well rare for JAX), trust me the selection now is near greens, If they can get the shelf space they may equal it one day, and boy would that be a hoot, and would really transform this town beer wise!!!
6/10/09: getting better and better
Finally got over here to see if they had any beer. Quite surprised to find they did have a whole row of beer. Its an organic store so they have allot of Organic beer, but the also had a nice Bell's selection of 5 different six packs. The carry Brooklyn, dog fish head, and about 15 other micro's. The had actually more Belgians than TW, but that's really not saying anything anymore because our TW is in sucks like a dog ville. they don't carry 1 BMC, so they gets bonus points from me. Nice place to pick up some rare organic food stuff also.
We been by a few times since we go to the hospital near there, and the selection is decent but prices are a tad higher than I like, and higher than others by quite a bit on some beers.
(still true prices on cigar city was 10.99 for GG, versus TW 9.99)
