My how time does fly! It seems like just yesterday Dahlia’s Pour House located in the King Street Beer District (even though it is actually on Post Street) of Jacksonville, Fla. The saloon, owned by a spunky and spirited woman, opened with 85 beer taps, a good-natured thumb of the nose at nearby Kickbacks Gastropub that had 84 at the time. Next month, on July 11, 2015, the popular watering hole celebrates its third anniversary with a full day of special beers including a Dahlia’s exclusive brew.
From the beginning, Dahlia’s was always about having a variety of brews to drink and activities to keep patrons entertained. The bar is filled with pool and ping pong tables, a beer pong table sits near a window as well as the first Beertleship game (think Battleship but with shots of beer instead of pegs). Dahlia’s has always been about sharing great beer with friends in a fun-filled, relaxing environment.
For its third anniversary, an unbelievable lineup of beers has been put together with an hourly $4 specials on selected beers. In addition, several breweries will have representatives present to help liven up the celebration with giveaways and special brews.
