Located in a more industrial section of King Street (near Roselle Avenue), Intuition Ale works appears as a grey warehouse with the simple logo on the side of the building. Intuition has a main tasting room which is decorated with natural wood floors, a medium sized wooden bar and several black high tables throughout the room. It can occommodate about 75 people comfortably before it starts to get really crowded. There is an overflow bar located in the brewery itself which has a much larger space, a huge wooden bar, picnic tables and some simple games for kids like toss across and such. On weekends and during special release nights, you'll find both bar areas crowded, filled with the beerish folks of Jacksonville, FL.
A: Atmosphere is modern and fun. The crowd is generally a mix of college aged students, working stiffs from the Riverside area, and downtown businessmen looking for a diversion on the ride home. There are slates with the latest beer offerings scribbled on them throughout and there is one flat screened TV for sports and whatnot.
Q: Quality of their beer is outstanding. I can't wait for Intuition to begin bottling and canning operations this year so they can show off what they can do to the rest of the world. All of their beers are brewed on-site, and the selection rotates based on what's fresh out of the fermenters or aging barrels.
S: Service is outstanding. The staff is very friendly and will help you select a great beer based on what you like if you're clueless as to what to try. They will offer you a small sample of the beers if you've never tried them before, or an around the world selection of various styles for a small fee.
Sel: Selection is also great. The only reason I didn't rate them a 5.0 is that it's sometimes nice to try a guest beer from another brewery, and Intuition really isn't into that. They prefer their brands, which is fine. All of their beers are excellent. Expect to recieve your beers in a pint, snifter or a glass mug (for beer club members) with a dog tag attached that has your name on it. Prices start about $5.00 for pints and 10 oz pours. They also sell quart and gallon growlers for serious fans.
F: Food isn't served in-house, but more often than not, they do have a local company on the premises offering up food to the thirsty crowd. They do this by means of supporting local food trucks by letting them park and serve out next to the loading dock, or inside the tasting room for pizza nights and the like.
V: Value is excellent. Where can you get a double hopped Belgian Tripel for $5 a pint? How about a pint of world class breakfast stout aged in whiskey barrels for 22 months for the same price? Nowhere.

Cool brewery with lots of beers. Very nice people and very helpful. Had a flight with a friend (two flights), and time went by flying. Super relaxed atmosphere.
Beers were good, not outstanding, but this brewery is a nice addition to the craft beer movement in Florida. I will go back certainly.
