Stopped by for Underdark release day 2013. Ambiance is small cozy pub as front tasting room, with another in the brewery that wasnít really operating the day I was there. Service was good, they were enthusiastic and knowledgeable about there beer. Selection was all there beer from what I could tell. Value is where they make leaps and bounds; a free flight when you walk in, then pints are only $3.50 each, not too bad. Overall, the beer is mediocre at best, but the place is worth a stop if you are already at Intuition Ale Works around the corner.
2-22-2013 RBWG. They have approximately 10 beers on tap. They plan to expand the brewery and add a beer garden. They have a malt room and this is a typical looking brewery. A brewery worth checking out.
Great local brewery!! I always love the feel of this place. When you walk in people are always friendly and playing games. The people that go here are always laid back and are there to enjoy great beer and relax.
They also have their brewery room open for additional seating and often have a food vendor or some sort for food if desired.
Their selection and what they have on is pretty small, but they are a small brewery, I do like that they keep it just their beers. When I bring new people they are always generous and knowledgeable and will give them a flight of their beers. This is a great place to bring people as everyone always enjoys something and has a great time. Their prices are really reasonable too!
I guess Iím a bit biased - I enjoyed BCB brews before they even officially opened. Just down the street from my house, it was the go-to spot for myself and several other Iowa transplants to enjoy cold beers in their parking lot with Jolly Mon cooking up delish grub on the grill. Dukeís Ale - named after their brew dog - was the first I tried. The family was always very nice and attentive in those first months, and service was top-notch. I still keep the complimentary pint glasses they handed out any time you killed a keg on your order. I no longer live in Jacksonville, but theyíll always have a spot on my top brewery list. Itís a fairly small bar and seating area, so enjoy the parking lot ambiance with some card, connect four, or jenga.
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 didnít 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.
Visited as part of the RBWG bus tour. Cool spot in a warehouse type building on the other side of the RR tracks (literally) from Intuition. Slightly shady neighborhood but we had strength in number. TUBES! Again, folks here had a number of food stations with paired kegs set up for us so we got the VIP treatment. Beers were so-so to not so good but the staff was all very friendly. Probably wonít return though unless GT dragged me there to tick.
I loved this place the most from the RBWG2013. Very much a place you coudl call home. Opens with a very small stone bar I would visit every week if I were a local. They have a catered onsight, so the food we had was delicious. I am not sure whether they food daily. Tell Regina her evil Ohio Twin Amy sent you!
