Warehouse in a funky old Jax hood. Friendly place with small casual taproom. Brand new and full of promise. Brewer has a bit of a rye fetish, which is a great way to expand the palate. So great to see this become a part of the FL craft beer scene. If here, Kickbacks is a cool bar about a mile away worth visiting on the same trip, and they will likely have some Bold City brews on tap there too.

Small tap room at the rustic brewery in Jacksonville. The lineup is great, and we had solid service from one of the brewers. It was a fun time had by all.

Bold City is awesome. The beer is sort of average but they’re cheap, fun to drink. And hell, where else on the planet do they have beer pong and flip cup tournaments inside the brewhouse while you play with craft beer!? Just really fun and awesome. And cheap barbecue to order right inside the warehouse. My favorite place in Jacksonville!

Visited here during RBWG 2013. Big thanks to the brewery for giving us the all-access experience, complete with complimentary beer and food! The beers from Bold City are decent. Not the most progressive beers out there, but solid. We were in the brewery rather than the bar section of this place, so we didn’t have the experience most visitors would likely have. The bar space looked nice, like a proper no-frills American bar. We got to meet a few of the staff and even the owner, who was generous enough to crack open some of their limited release beers for us. I had a great time here and would happily return.

This is a little warehouse packaging brewery with small air-conditioned tasting room built in at the front. They were readily filling one gallon growlers nearly one after the other during my extended visit. So the beer seems popular which is great. The staff is friendly in this family run establishment. The beer is as good as or better than anything else made for a hundred and fifty miles in any direction. The brewer Brian graciously showed us around. I will certainly visit again if I can get back to this area of FL.

2nd stop of the day during RBWG. Small bar with some tables. But, these guys rolled out the red carpet for us. They had kegs thoughout the brewery with snacks at most of the taps. Thanks!

Great new little brewery near downtown Jacksonville - just off I-10. Has a taproom with limited hours and the place was packed when we went there on a Saturday night. They offer a free 10 beer sampler - servings are too small to get a proper rating (unless you are a serious ticker with no shame) but if provides you a good idea of what to order. All were decent - no boundary stretchers here but also did not notice a "house taste" which was nice. Will look for them around town as they have taps at several locations. Stop by if you are going through Jacksonville on I-10. Very friendly crew working there and the place is kid-friendly and customers appeared to be regulars and were really enjoying themselves.

Visited with ibrew2or3.
Finally a place worth stopping at in Jax.
Small brewery in what appeared to be the hood.
Inside sports a nice tasting room with a window overlooking to the brewery itself.
10 beers on tap, free sampler tray and amazingly cheap pints.
Service was friendly and very family oriented which is a welcome change from anything else we had seen in the other JAX breweries so far.
They are doing great stuff in that town, and my only concern is some of the beers that appeared to be very one dimensional and thin in body.
Lots of local people coming in to refill the 1gal growlers.
Really good location and the best brewery in JAX bare none.

The 2nd stop on the RBWG bus tour didn’t disappoint. A cool, authentic atmosphere with outstanding service, and a good lineup to boot. And it’s right around the corner from Intuition Ale Works. Get over here!

We had no idea what we were walking into from the outside of this place. I mean, it’s a warehouse. There’s a roll down door and a regular door to right so we don’t know what to expect. However, when we step through the door we are welcomed from the Florida heat into a classy taproom with candle-lit tables and a brick bar serving some of the best craft brew we’ve had in ages! Sample tray? Free if you plan to purchase a beer- and do we ever plan to purchase. The beer was excellent. Our favorites: the wife feel in love with the Bold City Red Ale while I was impressed with the Mad Manatee. I was only disappointed that I missed the Chinook. Tours of the brewing area were offered every 1/2 hour or so and it was a treat to meet the brewer and owner. Overall one of our best experiences while on vacation. Good people, great beer. Thank you Bold City. Next time we’re in Jacksonville, we will be back!
