Went for lunch. The food was awesome, but the beer was basic and they seemed more like a bar than a brewery.

5 Zeta beers on tap plus 18-20 guest taps. Some high quality beers here. Mostly FL beers but also Rivertown and Founders. Large oval granite bar with surrounding tables. Plenty of stainless steel visible thru windows from inside the brewpub. Located very near both WoBeer and Green Room. 5 & 6 beer flights available.

The new owners have done some work on the place. The bar has been moved to the east wall and that frees-up some more floor room for tables.

The house beer selection is much larger with some really fun offerings. Sours, Hazy IPAs, Berliners, plus more "standard" offerings. Great to see the variety. Still have a decent guest tap list as well.

Menu has been redone and the two times I have been there to eat, I was happy with my choices.

Well worth a stop! Updated June 2019

I was pleasantly surprised to see another brewpub option in Jacksonville Beach area.

In talking to the bartenders, they have been open for about 6 months and have been serving their own beer for about 4 months.

They had 6 house beers and 18 guest taps during my visit. I had a very good pre pro lager that could have been served a bit colder, a nice brown, and a good IPA. I also sampled their Jack Daniels barrel aged pumpkin cranberry beer and a pretty nice fruit-wheat beer.

As you approach, you will see a small patio in front. The bar is a large rectangle in the middle of the room. There is table seating on all sides of the bar. The tanks are on the west side of the room and are behind glass. The semi-open kitchen is in back.

There are very high ceilings with exposed duct work and there is lots of light from the large windows. The place feels bigger than it is. TVs at the bar, so no problem catching a game.

They had a nice crowd while I was there. I noticed several big groups. I think that’s a good sign when people want to celebrate birthdays and bachelorette parties at a brewery! I also liked the wide variety of ages of the patrons.

I only had the wings so I will hold off rating their food until next time. The wings were solid and the food I saw looked and smelled good. Lots of folks were there to eat.

Service was friendly and free with samples. I will be returning soon.
