Another successful and event-filled Jacksonville Beer Week is concluded and in the history books. But, the beer events have not stopped coming. This week news has broken of two new beer dinners planned for later this month. Both event feature beer from local breweries and promise spectacular eats.
On Wednesday, June 25, enjoy a five course dinner paired with beers from Engine 15 Brewing Company in Jacksonville Beach. The dinner will be held at Roy’s, also in Jacksonville Beach.

Guests who attend the beer dinner can expect to find Roy’s signature influences throughout the dinner.
