What I had: Flight of Intuition Ale Works People’s Pale Ale, Silvertown Ale, Double Elimination IPA, Session Saison, House Boat Kolsch, and Salon Saison.
What I liked: Fun party vibe, had no trouble finding seats at the bar even though there was an event going on, affable service, most of the beers were above average quality, awesome merch display, enjoyed a nice chat with a couple from Indiana, good prices as pints range from $4.50 to $5.50.
What I disliked: Several taps were empty, draught list is hard to see from the bar, while the beers are stellar they fall short of greatness.
Would I go back? For sure. Intuition is a solid brewpub that excels in hoppy and dry beers. Definitely worth a crawl if you’re in the Riverside area.

Cool brewery in downtown Jacksonville Florida, industrial vibe.
Walking distance to the Jacksonville Jaguar stadium
Great beer, plenty of taps to choose from.
I 10 is definitely one of my go to beers when I'm in Jacksonville Florida.

I went here with three other folks before we attended the Jags game.

This is a pretty large two story space and it was filled on game day. I thought they did a good job of having clear ordering stations at the bar and that helped mitigate the crowds jostling for space to order. I would like to see them set-up some satellite ordering stations where they could offer just a few beers and help dispense the crowds waiting for beers. We had two beers each and if there were a few more places to order, we would have had a couple more.

I like the industrial vibe and the large garage doors that they can open up. The best part for me was the large open rooftop area. It was much cooler temp wise and the views were nice.

We did not try to eat this time but the food looked and smelled good.

They had a good selection of beers. Besides their regulars, they offered some good brewery options including a nice English Brown Ale, a German Pilsner and tasty Oktoberfest.

I really enjoyed my visit and will try and swing by again when the minor league Jumbo Shrimps are playing baseball next year.

I wanted to like this place. It’s a cool building, the layout inside is nice, and the vibe seemed pretty good. Though I was there on a Jaguars game day so it probably isn’t usually so rowdy/obnoxious. Another positive is that the food was pretty good! But in the end, this brewery is extremely disappointing because, well, the beer just isn’t good! It’s astoundingly mediocre, especially for a brewery with a local reputation. The actual quality of the products seems up to the standard, but the quality of the beer is lackluster. Nothing I’ve had from them so far has been remarkable. All their canned offerings are bland, as well. Fun place for a few beers with friends but I don’t plan on returning.

V - Downtown Jacksonville, which isn't my favorite place to be, but the brewery itself was very nice. The inside was clean and the atmosphere was very laid back.

Q - The beer was very good and cold.

Ser. - The service was good. Nothing to write home about, but definitely not bad.

Sel. - They have a lot of beer on tap. Everything is brewed in-house, which makes sense as it is a brewery. If you're looking for a place that has a lot of different breweries, this is not that place.

Food - Not amazing, but not bad either. The burgers are fine and go well with the beer.

Definitely worth stopping by before/after a Jags game, as we did. Was insanely busy given the post-game crowd, but still enjoyed the two pours we had. Some decent selection, but many were pale ales/IPAs and no really interesting/creative offerings (ie: barrel aged beers, sours, etc.). Would go back but wouldn't go out of my way.

Laid back beer hall style with a large central bar. Wasn't crowded at all for a Friday night, which was surprising, but it was January and kind of cool. Food was pretty good, order at the window and they give you one of those vibrating disc things for when it's ready. Prices were very reasonable for food and beer. Wish the stools were a little more comfortable, or maybe they don't want me drinking for 3.5 hours? Definitely come back here.

Sadly, easy to miss. And the entrance isn't a standout either.
Darker than most, smaller, as well. More of a neighborhood hangout feel.
The beer is good, th8ugh. And the staff if friendly and knowledgeable.
Worth the stop since you'll be going to, or coming from, Bold City about 3 blocks away.

Vibe: Dark and dreary. As one user noted, "outside it looks like you might get stabbed."

Quality: Beers are fresh. Nothing to complain about here.

Service: Service was great.

Selection: They had a great selection of their brews. No outside beer at all - which is odd.

Overall: Despite the vibe, I'd stop by here again to give their seasonals a try. It's a 4 minute walk from Bold City. They definitely have a bigger selection of seasonal and specialty brews than Bold City. However, the experience is lacking. I was really disappointed to spend $8 on a sampler coming from Bold City where samplers are free your first visit. They also did not give tours without an appointment - Lame.

Outside looks like you might get stabbed. Inside was surprisingly comfortable. Plus 1 point for having an amazing bottle of Tres Brujas available. Minus 1 point for not letting me buy it to go.

For now, a serviceable taproom with not a lot of extras. However, there is a great variety of small batch beers to sample. I can't wait for there new place to open hopefully sometime in 2015.

Not a fan of this place. Beer is nothing special and They charge for you to taste their beer where as a GOOD micro brewery allows you to taste their selections on your first visit. Not the case here.

Great local brewery with large tap room and bar. Their own beers are on tap. Good neighborhood hang out to drink a flight, or pick up a growler.

Intuition is a place I try to swing by every time I am in town. Their entire beer list is available in growlers. They have helpful staff and the beers are great. Very happy they are canning their Stout now.
