Finally got out to the beach to try this new place. Comfortable place with lots of open space. Could fit a few more tables if they needed. Large board over the back of the bar displays the tap offerings, another on the opposite wall show the bottles.
Very nice selection of all craft beer offerings. Wide range, from pumpkin, to Quads, several IPA/IIPAs, a harder-to-find RIS, such as Weyerbacher XV Anniversary. Staff seemed reasonably knowledgeable, although I didn't have a chance to really test them ;>). Service was good, not great. I pointed out that they only charged me for one of the two beers I ordered, and they gave me both at happy hour prices (it wasn't h.r.).
Food was high quality, inexpensive, and interesting. My kids loved the pigs-in-a-blanket, a favorite that I've never seen in a bar before. Good sandwiches, etc. Small selection, but good beer food.
A welcome addition to the JAX beer scene. I'll be back.

Hands down my favorite Jax place to hangout! The staff is awesome, there is plenty of beer to choose from and the food is great! Is you enjoy stouts and they have their Chupa Cabbra get it! If it's barrel aged pick some up to bring home! It is great aged. The atmosphere is a place that once you are there you feel home.

This is a good little hangout with 50 beers on tap, they also have a pretty neat brewing program for those who want to start brewing without buying all the equipment. The beertenders get really busy and sometimes there isn't enough people behind the bar to help...patience comes in handy sometimes when you are here. The atmosphere is very friendly and they sometime play chicken poop bingo! Around christmas time is a great time to be here they brew a different beer for 12 days...if you make it to the end you get a free beer a day for the rest of the month.

Engine 15 is a regular stop for my wife and I, we love the laid back atmosphere of the place, the good food (Split Sheboygan -Awww Yeah!), and most importantly the beer selection.
They recently upgraded the beer menu from a chalkboard to flatscreen TVs that broadcast the beer/abv/type/glass, which makes for a much better process of selection. If you still can't decide what you want, no worries, just ask for a sample or do a flight. Everytime we're there we always start with a flight of new beers to try. WeissGuy, Nutsack, and Mosaic WetHop are my personal favorites from E15s own brews.
The food menu while small in selection is big in flavor. Anything with a Brat in it is good, can't go wrong with a good Brat. Their Frito Pie is really good, was nice to see a Texas favorite in Florida!
Service has always been spot on for us, we've never had a problem getting the bartender's attention or really even had to, we finish a beer and they're there asking if you're ready for another.
We might be a bit bias because this is our go to place, but it's awesome to us and we recommend everyone to check it out for themselves.

So, I just spent nearly 10 minutes giving a very insightful, verbose, eclectic review, and the ole CPU shut down on me. I am reluctant to re-review, so I am going to give a synopsis of my previous review, which should be fungible in both its integrity and details (without all the details).
A nice littel joint in a strip mall (not fond of). Great local selection with 6 or so house brews as well as Cigar City and Florida Beer Co represented. 20+ other brews including some Belgians and typical craft beer.
Service was competent without being overly doting and "homerish". One aspect I liked was the permanantly reserved table for some older patrons (Bonnie and Wilbur?). I happened to be at the table directly adjacent to them and noticed the sign that said "This table reserved daily at 4:30 for Wilbur and Bonnie. If you find yourself here at that time, pound sand", or something to that effect. The couple seemed lovely and were having a great time.
I would certainly return here again. It is kind of in no-mans land as it is about 2 miles from the beach and 1 mile from any kind of industrial (Target, Wal-Mart, Publix, etc) commercial area.
I had the Double Drop IPA and I must say it was quite delicious. A new pet-peeve of mine has become the ubiquitous Session IPA; isn't that just a Pale Ale? They had a session IPA on draft weighing in at a hefty 4.9% abv.
