Stopped in for their 4th Anniversary party this weekend. It was very busy, but I think I got the gist of the place.
Nice cozy little taproom with another bar on the outside of it next to their brewery area - this seems to be the trend in Jacksonville.
The bartenders were prompt and friendly and able to talk plenty about the beers.
The selection when I was there was just their own beers, and they had plenty because of the anniversary party. Canít complain!
Prices that day were cheap - $2 pints for the party - but I believe most days they fit the Jax bill of $5 pints or so.
Overall, I canít say this is a "must stop" when visiting Jax. Their tasting room hours are limited and you can get their beers all over town without going to the place. However, the owners and brewers are really friendly and talkative and they do sometimes have one or two beers on tap that you canít get around town. Give it a shot, especially if youíre stopping at Intuition (do it), which is right around the corner within definite walking distance.

Drinking a sampler of good beer and playing Rock em Sock em Robots or any of the board games is a fine easy to spend an evening.

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.

Nice cozy bar area with a wide open table area in the back. Nice beer selection. Pretty solid brew pub line up. None of the beers rocked my world but all good. No TVís in back area.

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!

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!

Visited as part of the RBWG.
My ambiance rating is for the actual tasting bar. We were hosted in the actual brewery which is an old wooden warehouse.
I found several of the beers that I had tasted at the brewery at Grassroots and bought them to take home and sample again.
