New Jacksonville brewery Veterans United Craft Brewery expected to open in May

13 Jan

Veterans-United-Craft-Brewery-WebSome preliminary information is emerging about the next brewery that will open in Jacksonville. Veteran United Craft Brewery is expected to begin brewing in May of this year. Ron Gamble, a former Naval Flight Officer, secured funds last year through Florida First Capital using their Vet Loan Advantage Program.

While information is limited at this early stage in the brewery’s development, it is known that the brewery will be built in the Baymeadows area of Jacksonville off of Southside Boulevard. The brewery will feature three main styles of beer at first along with seasonal and special releases. The exact styles to be brewed are not set in stone yet, but all will be produced in small batches. Veterans United has plans to can their beers for sale through distribution to local – and further down the road regional – outlets. In the meantime, the brewery plans to keg beer for sale to restaurants and bars as well as operate a taproom at the brewery site.

Gamble has previously served as a brewmaster at several New England breweries.

    Had the pleasure of drinking some of Ron’s beers while he and his wife were living in Massachusetts. Jacksonville will be the better when his beers are available for sale!
