Wow. If I lived in Jax Beach, I would be here all of the time. This place is right off of A1A, small parking lot in front, and by the time they open every day there is usually street parking as well. This open, well-windowed place with a nice bar and stage area with the brewery behind, accessible by glass doors. They have Jenga, darts, and cornhole boards for people to play with. When I went by, they also had an awesome food truck in the back. If I did not have other stops to make, this would be my only one. They have very affordable flights of their beer, plus they showcase other Florida breweries like Swamp Head, Saint Somewhere, Cigar City, and other Jacksonville brewers, too. I was grateful, since I missed Bourbon Underdark at Intuition, and they had it at Green Room. If only there were places like this in Tampa. Laid back atmosphere and great service on the beach with great beer and a Parmesan crusted grilled cheese and pita chips. Sign me up.
Visited later evening on a Tuesday. Parking is on the street next to the building, or a small number of parking spots right in front. Layout of the interior is bare bones, certainly built for crowds. Seats at the bar, or around the front room. There is also an outdoor deck. Foosball table up front. There is an entire open room in back with the brewing equipment, as well as picnic tables, ping pong, jenga, full size connect 4. Foosball table outdoor deck. Selection is 16 house beers, focused on adjunct beers, though creative and fun. Full pour, growler, or 4 beer taster for $5. Dogs welcome. Friendly service, fun welcoming crowd.
76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.
Dogs, college students, hippies and families. You name it they are here and are noisy. Games and TV’s in the back and seedy sticky bar up front. Service was quick but not really beer focused. Selection was large and OK, but nothing all that great. Prices were pretty decent though. Lots of ticks and a few interesting beers at the right price make this an OK place.
came here on a Saturday afternoon. a pretty large seating area with a decent size bar. had 14 beers on tap from themselves that represented a good crosssection of beer styles. had a few pints and some banter with some local beer bros. Service was good and knowledgeable. will return.
Probably my second favorite brewery in Jacksonville (well it is actually in Jacksonville Beach in a high density business/strip mall area). Pretty laid back inside and as mentioned, there are ping pong tables and other games in the back room. They make some unique beers, some were not as exciting as anticipated, but overall quite tasty. I got to try a Brett pale ale, pilsener aged on grapefruit peel, and a saison made with lemongrass, honey, and citrus peel. They have a few of their own bottles available for sale (special release type stuff) and a guest tap or 2. Overall a must stop in Jax.
This is a cool little spot down by the beach. The front room offers tables, some couches, and the bar to sit while enjoying the beers on tap. The back has ping pong and jumbo jenga to play. They always have a solid selection of beers on tap, mostly theirs obviously, but they do host beers from other breweries. Overall it is a great place to chill out and enjoy some truly great beers.

Nice place to drink. Parking is sketchy. Close to the beach. Their beers are fairly solid if not flashy. Ping pong & darts & a couple flatscreens. Nice!
Visited here during RBWG 2013. Awesome place. Beer quality is extremely high and they offered taster trays so you could work your way through their substantial list of offerings. In the back they had jumbo-size Jenga and a ping pong table. Out front they had live music. Bar staff was friendly and helpful. I would absolutely hang out here if I lived locally.
