Kickbacks is probably the best bar in the Jacksonville area. They have a great selection of beers that is not matched by anyone else in town. The owner is a Beer Advocate and he tries his hardest to get new and different beers constantly. He seems to have good relationships with many people in the beer industry and this seems to help bring in new products and allow him to do outstanding beer dinners. I highly recommend this bar. Unfortunately, it was not near where lived but that is probably a good thing or I would have never left. Some of the servers really care about beer as well but some still have some learning to do but they try and that's what really matters to me. Hell, I can't pronounce every beer name and remember all the proper glassware. But there are plenty of people there that do know beer so expect the beer to be served with the appropriate glassware. The food is pretty good, and the menu has many selections, even PB&J if you feel that will pair well with the beer you have. Many TVs for your viewing pleasure and typically some good music playing. An eccentric and diverse crowd at times but I'm sure everyone can fit in around there. I always enjoy going there to try something new and see what beers and events are coming up. If you are in the area, then stop in and have a beer.

Great atmosphere, cool vibe, lots of old tap handles... everywhere. While the quality of beer available was ok, the selection was not good at all. Being around the corner from some great Jax breweries and being able to pull in some CCB, they had ZERO FL beers on tap. How is that possible? The kicker, it was Jacksonville Craft Week. Maybe they didn't get the memo. I went down to World of Beer and had a Bold City Duke's Cold Nose and Cigar City Homemade Apple Pie. The bartender was a very nice guy though.
