“Perfect Place for a Pint”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

My husband and I were told to visit this brewery and boy am I glad we did! They brew their beer in back of the pub. On our first visit they gave me free samples of what they had on tap and talked about each one. They also have a placemat guide to help. They had a variety of styles though they are often out of some types which is fine because you will want to go back. It's a family run business and when they found out it was our first visit they took us on a private tour of the facility and let us take our sampling glasses home. We especially liked the Fritz which is an unfiltered wheat beer. It's one of the best I've had in the US as far as similarity to true German Heffeweizen.
I do have a few warnings: try not to go after dinner, it will be VERY crowded, they close at 11pm on the nights they are open and they aren't open daily.

“Great little place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

This place is tucked in an industrial area. We inquired at our hotel about how to get there and they said they had never heard of it! However, they do sell their beer!!!! Go figure. Well, for a little place, there was a constant stream of people puchasing growlers or just shooting the breeze. It was a nice hour!

“Only open Thurs- Sunday”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

Tried to go on a monday-closed. Disappointment after looking for the place an hour! (If you go, know that it's in a industrial looking building that doesn't look like anything you would want to go into.)

“"Best few hours"..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012

We were visiting our 25 yr. old son and knowing we are all interested in microbreweries we thought this might be an interesting few hours to spend together. It was. It's a great little place. While waiting for a tour, We sat and played one of the many table games and had a "sample collection" of the breweries best. The tour was run by one of the owners and he definitely wanted everyone to know how they processed the beer.. He was animated and kind throughout the tour. No question was silly... we then ended in the tap room to enjoy another hour of the great beer...Duke beer was great! Great place to enjoy the afternoon downtown.

“Best local beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2012 via mobile

if you are into microbreweries and haven't checked out bold city or at least tried their beer....do it, you are missing out on a jacksonvolle gem. The beer is fantastic with their brown ale taking top notch. I highly recommend them to all beer lovers i know.

Thank justin s
