Jacksonville Beer Week is finally here and there are a lot of unbelievably cool events taking place all over town. No longer do Jacksonvillians (Jacksonvillites?) have to travel to other cities for a quality beer week. From this moment on we can triumphantly pronounce that we, the people of Jacksonville have our own spectacular beer week, and we are darned proud of it!
Each day this week I will add a post with the events happening that day. Believe me when I say, there are some truly amazing events happening.
To kick things off tonight what better place is there than the beer capitol of Jacksonville, Kickback’s Gastropub in Riverside/Avondale? Steve Flores owner and beer connoisseur – freshly returned from Belgium — is putting 15 beers from local brewers on tap tonight for local beer night; five each from Intuition Ale Works, Bold City Brewing, and Green Room Brewery. And to top that, each will be sold at happy hour prices all day! Look for visits from brewery reps as well as distributors, too!
Not to be outdone, Bold Bean Coffee in Riverside is offering $4 pints of local and coffee-inspired beers all week. Look for the special series of beers brewed by Bold City Brewing, it’s a knockout!
Watch for my post tomorrow with the events happening tomorrow night. You don’t want to miss a single one!
