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!

Love the vibe here! The perfect size to still feel small and intimate but big enough to have good crowd on a busy day. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable about the beer. Selection was excellent, both in terms of quantity of offerings and differing styles, including some barrel aged offerings. Would definitely good back if I ever find myself in J'Ville again.

No food (occasional food trucks or BYO), and kind of quiet. It was pleasantly surprising to not have blaring music, just quiet conversation amongst friends enjoying good beer.

Awesome place.l, as long as you go to Kings Av. and not King St. Doh!
20 different brews on tap at this point, ranging from sours to barleywines.
Staff is very cool, very friendly, willing to chat if they have the time and professional.
I love the exposed brickwork, the raw wood, it's a really great vibe, and very family-friendly.
If you only do two, this better be one of them.

Really cool place with a nice vibe in Jacksonville.

About 10-15 of their own beers on tap, all solid, but none of them were spectacular. They sell growlers, but no bottles. The place was quite crowded, but the place is big, so it never felt claustrophobic. No food that I could tell.

Great place to grab a beer, nice large area even when a crowd just go and sit at the benches.

Large and pleasant microbrewery with good service, multiple seating areas and plenty of free parking (around back). About 20 beers on tap, including about 4 IPAs, a gose, a RIS, a coffee brown, a pale ale and several other styles. Small pours available at $2 ea., with full pours at $4-$5.

Probably my favorite Local brewery at the moment. Awesome old school building that they renovated to make it into the Brewery/Tap Room. All brick sort of demolition looking style and a few rooms in the back accessible for parties/groups to hang out at. The staff is awesome and I enjoy a majority of their beers as well. This is a must visit if you are traveling through/near Jacksonville, Florida.
