Update: World of Beer now plans February opening for Jax store

Back in September an article appeared here about the planned opening of the first Jacksonville World of Beer store (see link below). Today, in an article to the Florida Times-Union blog Amber Waves, Roger Bull reports that the new opening date is estimated to be February of 2013. This seems to make sense since on a recent visit there did not appear to be any site improvements underway. The only indication that anything would happen was a sign that touted the old Starbucks in Tinseltown as the future home of World of Beer.

Bull also reports that the Tinseltown location will not be the only Jacksonville location for the chain that now operates 31 locations in 10 states. According to the article, there could be as many as four more locations planned for the First Coast.

Engine 15 is on Fire with Beer Week Events

Jacksonville Beer Week Starts tomorrow and, as I have written before, there are a whole slew of events taking place all over town. One of the many venue that will be celebrating this week is Engine 15 on Beach Blvd. in Jacksonville Beach.

The guys and gals at E15 are not only awesome hosts and hostesses, but they also have a great line-up of brew specials for Jax Beer Week. Be sure to visit them this week for awesome beer and great food!

Wednesday, April 4

A special beer food pairing is in the works matching Engine 15’s Oak Aged Simcoe Imperial IPA with steam burger sliders and coconut rice for only $10. Yum!

Thursday, April 5

Ed Stansel and Roger Bull have been writing about beer for the Florida Times Union on their Amber Waves blog for several years now. They are not only authorities on drinking good beers, but now they are delving into making good beer. A few weeks ago they visited E15 to experience the Brew-It-Yourself aspect of Engine 15. On Thursday they will be tapping the beer they brewed – named Amber Waves, of course. It’s a hoppy Double Amber. All proceeds benefit the St. Johns Riverkeeper – you can’t make good beer without good water, right?!

Friday, April 6

Jax Beer Tap Takeover at The Engine! Seventeen local Jax beers including…five Engine 15 beers on tap + one Engine 15 in a Firkin + Engine 15 Old Battle Axe through the Randall! And ten beers from Intuition, Bold City & Green Room. You might just find yourself in Jax beer Nirvana!

Visit the Engine this week and help support local beer!
