Jacksonville beer scene poised for growth

beer in florida, photo by djprybyl on FlickrFlorida Times-Union writer Roger Bull recently wrote that the craft beer scene in Jacksonville will get a boost with the planned opening of two brewpubs and a craft brewery.

The latest to announce plans is Green Room Brewing, which will be at 228 Third Street N. in Jacksonville Beach. Bull writes that Green Room owners Eric Luman  and Mark Stillman have made it over preliminary regulatory hurdles and now need planning commission approval and state and federal permits.

A little closer to opening days are the Engine 15 Brewing Co., also in Jacksonville Beach, and Brewers Pizza on Blanding Boulevard in Orange Park. Both have their brewing systems installed and are waiting for final permits. Both currently offer nice selections of craft beer on tap and in bottle.

The new establishments will join other Jacksonville beer spots such as small brewers Bold City Brewery, Intuition Ale Works, and the River City Brewing Co. as well as the massive Budweiser brewery.
