This is NOT A WORLD CLASS PUB, not even close.
God I love how folks overrate everything:
Dec 2012 visit: they got their own beer now. and man the place is more overcrowded...

July 2011 visit:
more food, better beer bottle list. Taps the same, chairs are horrible, too loud in there still. rating it higher but to us the atmosphere is just another beach bar, that is not on the beach, and is in a strip mall. They can brew now, but its a brew your own limited thing, that quite frankly makes the place even with less space, AKA they need a bigger place ASAP. Service sucks if your not at the bar, no 1 waits on your nor do they tell you that, you figure it out for yourself, and its not easy to get through to the bar if its packed.

Oct 23, 2010 visit:
went back to see if anything changed. The good point they got prices on the board now. still very difficult to read they should be over the bar, not on the other side of it. At least they got bottles listed. I give them a b+ for effort. Still its a Local's clique type place, the chairs are just what kills it for me.

We got over charged on 1 happy hour beer, was 3 but we just missed the start of happy hour by like 10 minutes? Not a deal breaker. Cheese plate was excellent. most places the Happy Hour is 2 to 7 hear its 4 to 7.

We got a laugh when I asked about tripels, the beer tender held up a Rochefort 8 and told me it was a tripel, I said not. he was not interested to learn, or just thought i was wrong, so funny, they know American beer but nothing much about Belgium beer. That said I have to be thankful they have a decent selection.

Still its our last visit, after nearly getting hit in the head by some game by the bathroom, and no apology about being overcharged, not to mention at shift change, they turned the music up so loud you could NOT hear yourself think, we will most likely never go back, besides they still cannot brew on Premise.

for a true beer bar, beer wise I say they are number #2 in town.
not saying much after KB, 84 taps

Sept 2010
New place in strip mall, newest one on Beach near Penman, not far from the beach.

ok i was not going to rate this place yet. 1 visit and all that. So I am hoping the place will get better. not sure it can its in a small place. That is not a bad thing really. I am hoping they will start letting folks homebrew on site soon.

A: so other wise its a small strip mall bar, with a L shaped bar, and way too many of the sorry, rock hard on your ass wooden bar chairs I ever sat in. I would think they would want folks to stay and drink since, there is only a small bar food menu.

Service: well at the bar at the start of happy hour, timed that right. No menus, and the beer is on a flat board on the back wall, hard to read and NO BEER PRICES IS a big NO NO in my book. What's the matter does the price change? heck even the receipt was void of prices. That bugs me, maybe things will improve.

Selection: well same standard overload of IPA, PA as most places with 20 taps in town.
Beer i had was ok, no big glass freak, so the ST creme B in a ST b glass no big deal, it was full to the rim so not bitching about that.

food: ok bar snacks mainly

its very loud in there, had a few nice tv's, tables outside for smokers. Not the most friendly place but few are at the beach. I noticed a old face moved here from Euro street, Andy, he was busy so he could not talk much.

all in all maybe they will make it and can expand and get better seats and tables, and bigger beer selection, but its just a watering hole, no bottle menu yet. Wife was mad no blue moon.

nothing earth moving great about it, its a strip mall craft beer bar, no BMC yet, but that will change I bet money on it.

mainly a local click place, outsiders not really welcome if you ask me.

Best option in Jax Beach if you want beer and food as well. Great tap list, including many of their own fine beers and outstanding guest taps. Food is pub grub but well executed. Space is a little small- nice long bar and then a few tables. Some of their own bottles are available for sale in a walk-in. Solid.

Open at 11 on a Sunday. (Awesome sauce.)
Friendly, very knowledgeable, attentive, we'll informed staff.
Over 50 on tap, 1/2 are theirs.
Cool setting, easy to find, plenty of parking, even outside seating available.
Guest taps, currently, include several Florida brewers like Cigar City, First Magnitude, 3 Daughters & Tomoka. Bear Republic, Founders, even some Belgians are represented as well.

Outstanding experience! Jessika was awesome as our server - prompt, very pleasant, and very knowledgeable. All three of our beers were top notch, and the lunch was fantastic! The next time we're in the area we will be going back!

Great place to grab a beer and some bar food... not only do they have 20+ of their own beers on tap but they have several other local options on tap as well.
