I was finally able to stop by during my latest visit to Jacksonville. It was close to my hotel, so it worked out great.

I like this space. According to the friendly bar tender, it has gone through numerous incarnations starting out as an ice house (notice the tongs behind the bar), a tile warehouse, etc. There are three rooms, the main bar, an indoor German styled room with picnic tables and then a room with couches and stuff for private parties.

They had a good post work crowd. I think lots of folks were going to the Jacksonville Jags game that night like we were.

They offered 8 or 9 house beers and about the same amount of guest taps. They had a pretty impressive range of styles. I liked everything I had.

I wish they offered food, but food trucks usually show-up. They offer full size and half growlers.

I can really recommend a stop at this friendly gem!

Really great place to bring people to impress them. Might be a bit fancy looking, but the prices are great, and the beer is even better.

Went there on a Friday night, the place was really busy but still very easy to order beer. They had a TON of different beers to try including guest taps. Very nice modernized brewery, also very clean. Didn't really get a chance to talk with any of the staff but I still had a great time and enjoyed a few beers with good people. The prices were really good as well.

Aardwolf is one of the best up and coming breweries in Jacksonville FL. They brew a wide range of beer styles wich offers great variety to choose from. Their taproom is huge with a long bar and separate spaces for lounging or hosting a business meeting or party. They usually have some of the best food trucks outside their brewery as well and they also don't care if you want to order food in and eat it in the tap room. They just put their first BA beers they are going to release into the barrels and also are about to start their sour program. Although they brew a lot of styles they are all really solid. If your ever in Jacksonville, FL then you definitely need to swing in and check them out.

One of my favorite breweries in Florida. No nonsense, people are helpful, they have a very big lineup, there are guest taps, everyone is cool and having a good time. Also, the variety is vast. Lots of styles being made and served, and lots of them are very good beers.

I didn't come out with a favorite beer, but definitively a great brewery.

The Aardwolf Brewing Company has become one of my favorite beer venues to visit with friends in Jacksonville, FL as it expresses a welcoming to all who may enter its tap room in a simple and friendly way. Since my arrival in Jacksonville, FL last Spring, its subtle character has grown on me with every visit and its unadvertised theme about bringing people together with great beer is apparent.

Polished in a light industrial style with bare brick walls and very high ceilings, I find the absence of many distracting tv screens and blazing neon signs to be a welcoming factor where one is not subjected to the latest pummeling in the UFC or the statistical commentary of modern baseball.
Aardwolf stands apart from its competitors with Spartan comforts and no real supporting kitchen, other than the food trucks the sit in the gravel parking lot.

The real story of Aardwolf Brewing Company is served by the glass and the thorough craftsmanship that goes into its brewed products can be tasted. Daring to explore many different styles of beer, Aardwolf is clearly not afraid to articulate its own vision of traditional styles of beer complete with funky names having to do with wolves...For instance, I tasted a very good Weizenbock from the brewery last night known as "Wolf-in-Stein" and a funny Christmas Ale known as "Merry Christmas, You Filthy Animal".

If one is visiting Jacksonville for the first time or the 50th, I highly suggest visiting Aardwolf in the San Marco area for a taste of innovative ales that seemingly bring people together at the brewery.
