I saw some posts about this on a couple of Jacksonville Facebook pages. I'm considering going, but was wondering what to expect. Anyone here ever gone? According to the website ( http://www.beerfestjax.com) this is the 5th year of the event, so it must be successful.

How have we not run into each other? Iím guessing we have...

I havenít been, but the fest is hosted by a local distributor, Champion, so itís likely just a slew of stuff thatís available at every store already anyway. Donít go into it expecting a bunch of awesome, crazy, or rare beers... go into it expecting to get a ton of beer and get drunk if you want.

Anyway, I am the beer buyer at Grassroots Natural Market. Say hello next time youíre in!

Cheers!
