On the main drag on Jax Beach, this laid back location is a relaxed oasis in a touristy place.
Beer selection is pretty big for a brewery of this size.
The staff is helpful without being in your face.
The brews are fresh and tasty and not a bad one in the bunch.

With complete lack of any expectations, this place blew me away. Near the beach unknown microbrew in jax spelled disaster but this place is awesome. Cheap flights, very very decent beer, and incredibly kind service. Love it

Not your average micro brewery. No food only great beer, friendly staff and patrons. Get your food delivered from anywhere around the area or bring it with you. Dog friendly with a great down home feel. Old school games like large connect four and ping pong in the back room. Had a lot of fun here! I love this place!

I love going to this brewery! The brewery is so well spread out. I love the fact that its dog friendly as well as kid friendly. Always a great selection of beers to choose from on their board. There is alot to do even if you don't like drinking beer. In the backroom you can play ping pong they have a bunch of board games as well. The staff is super knowledgeable and friendly and they have great bar prices. Cheers!

I get to Jacksonville on a fairly regular basis for work. I usually try and stay out at the beach and have been meaning to try the Green Room for some time.

There is a tiny parking lot in front and my guess is most patrons either walk-up or ride there on their beach bike. You could also park on the side streets.

The bar room is painted a beachy blue with some drift wood type wood panels and there is beach inspired art work on the walls. There is a 20 foot or so long bar in the front room. The top is polished concrete and the base is made of corrugated metal. I like the look.

There is also a small stage, some tables and a comfy couch located in one of the corners. I guess they have music several nights a week. I bet it is a lot of fun.

There is also a back game room with some more seating and the biggest Connect Four game I have ever seen. The tanks are open in the back room and you could see the brewers working if they are active during your visits.

Service was friendly & seemed beer savvy. They have no problem giving out samples. They have about 12 house beers and 3 or so guest taps. I like the variety of types/styles. Most beers were $5.

I enjoyed my visit and will be back for another in the near future.

This is a great beach bar brewery! the atmosphere was very laid back and the people that were there were very nice, not just the staff. When I was there they had a beer testing/ trading that was going on that is put on by the locals there. It was very cool. Their selection wasn't overwhelming, they have a good selection of their beers and have a handful of guest taps.

The Green Room was started by Eric Luman a former brewer of Seven Bridges and was Jacksonville beaches first brewery. They brew a wide range of beers including a IPA, Barleywine, Oatmeal Stout, Berliner Weiss and Pale Ale to name a few as well as brewing a new small 10 gallon batch of experimental beer every week so there is almost always something new to try . They only serve beers brewed in Florida to support the local Florida craft beer seen. All beers are 5$ flat. The atmosphere is great and really laid back wich one would expect being just a couple minutes walk from the water. They have live music a couple times a week and when nobody is playing there's still always some good music coming through the speakers. They don't offer food but you can bring your own or order anything that you would like and have it delivered. They also allow you to bring in your dog as well. Overall this is a really good brewery that likes to brew some interesting beers to go along with their regular line up. Anytime Im at the beach I make sure to swing in for a pint.... or six!

Good laid back beach scene. Only serves beer from Florida craft breweries as well as their own craft beers. Dogs allowed:) The Green Room also uses the spent grains from brewing to make dog treats. The staff and locals are very helpful and knowledgeable about the beers. The Green Room also does a small batch release on tuesdays

Located two blocks from the ocean on Jacksonville beach. great brews! With anything from Head high IPA, Double overhead Double IPA, Diamond Belgian Wheat, Shaka Oatmeal Stout, to Pablo Beach Pale Ale, Undertow Florida Barleywine made with 10 gallons of orange blossom honey. Also they have a new pilot batch that comes out every Tuesday. Atmosphere is really beach like and laid back, with games out in their brewery like Giant Jenga and ping-pong. Live music Fridays & Saturdays. Ask for a tour, Jason is always willing to tell you about whats going on.

I am very happy to see how well this place is doing. The head brewer is agreat guy and very interactive with his customers. He has certainly picked up on the number of beers of his own he has on tap and having other Florida beers available and keeping the whole place all Florida is a nice idea. The atmosphere is good. The crowd is better than the typical beach crowd which is ok with me. The selection is as should be selected at this early juncture and the quality is solid. Pricws are standard for any brewery. Food isn't available at this time. Overall, selection, quality and ownership are the highlights here and I look forward to watching this brewery grow.

Disclaimer: I never overate places, especially if I live in town. I want a accurate and fair review. I been to 1000's of places in the world and I know good from bad.

Aug 2013 visit, had the sweet stout, was a tad too sweet for me.
Wife refuses to drink anything but root beer, lol

Sept 2011 visit: After grand opening they have their own beers.
they still carry other taps of other Florida brewers which I think is a smart move. They have a overpriced food truck now, so one can eat there if one wished.(food was decent but pricey)

Still think their beer is overpriced, even intuition lower their prices to 4 bucks. parking is still an issue, but its a nice place. Still its a locals hangout and not the friendliness place in town but what do you expect 70%+ of Florida is Yankee's. Could be better with professional bartenders service wise. There just starting out they can only get better. (I hope).

Still not officially opened yet, so well its really just a bar atm.

I can see lot's of potential here. its in a decent location if your on foot or bike, but car wise, parking is going to be an issue. Now maybe they have more parking hidden, but it's a problem at the beach. It has always been parking space is limited @ beach, especially on 3rd street near beach blvd. So while NOT on the beach it's not too far away.

the have about 12 taps, a few are empty, they are carrying Florida brews on tap and a decent selection.They were out of St Somewhere saison on tap, which bummed me out to say the least.

the bar and the whole front end has a nice beach feel to it. there is 2 tv's I think? and a Foosball table. 25-30 foot bar and about 6 tables or so.

So its really to early to review it, but hey they opened it, I just review it. So their beer is not ready yet and I feel their limited ex Bold city kit will limit them allot. as they only plan on 2 beers, so it will be more a bar than brewery IMHO.

Service was good @ bar but there was no1 in there.

Selection was Florida only beers, while good is limited IMHO

no food , and why you want to bring food in there is a mystery to me, maybe some folks like it. I mean if they had snacks or more great, but why bring food in unless there was a food place next door, but they is not.

I keep hoping in having near 6 breweries/brew pubs in town you have something different, but sadly they are the same old IPA beer places. this one promises a lager, wow, just what we need in a bud town another lager...sarcasm

5 dollar shaker pints, maybe 14 oz, did not measure them. 16 oz maybe filled to 14.5oz maybe.

Since its close to the Ritz and their 2.50 beer happy hour, I will stop by to try their beer when it gets ready. Then I am sure it will be my last visit as I rather drink 2.50 blue moon's over most of the beer they had.

Well, they just opened a few weeks ago and they haven't presented their first beers yet but they are coming soon. They will start off with a IPA and a Helles lager. Right now they have about 15-20 so FL beers on tap. Cigar City, Swamphead, St Somewhere and all the Jacksonville locals.

Location is the main key. The spot alone sets up this brewery for success just a few blocks from the beach and in the hot spot for bar hopping. My only concern is possible unwanted crowd that may creep over from the clubs.

Potential is the main thing. The bar is gourgeous and the set up works great. The brewer, Eric Luman, has serious talent. I applaud him for starting out with a lager. That will set him a part and generate a lot of local interest quickly. I'm really looking forward to watching this place grow and trying his beers.
