Review of Bold City Brewery

During our visit to Jacksonville, we decided to look up wineries/breweries. We had already been to San Sebastian several times as well as the Budweiser Brewery, so we were looking for something new. We came across Bold City Brewery online and decided to give it a try.

It's easy to miss as you're driving because the outside sign is small. When we first pulled up, we looked at each other nervously, but inside was actually really nice! The bar area is tastefully decorated (love the Boxer-dog images!) and seems warm and inviting. The warehouse area is large and seems perfect for large parties and/or groups.

If it's your first time visiting, they will give you a fairly decent-sized free sampler of eight - that's right, EIGHT - beers. The owner's son and another worker helped us and talked to us about the beers, assisting us in discovering which ales we'd like best. They were very friendly, answered all of our questions, talked to us about the brewery, and even offered to take us on an unscheduled tour of the brew-making section (which we didn't take him up on because we didn't want to keep him from his other customers). Their normal brew tour is on Saturdays. They told us which stores nearby sold their beer in can/bottle form and what beers were available. We ended up buying a quart growler - which is refillable - of the Fritz & Chinook to bring home with us and driving by a store to purchase a 12 pack of Duke's.

The beer prices are reasonable, the taste is good, and the atmosphere is relaxed and inviting. Can't ask for too much more than that!

The sampler was free and had a nice selection of beer. But the food portions were underwhelming, if fairly priced. So dont come if youre hungry, but come for the beer if youre a fan of the ale.

On site brewery. Be sure to ask for a sampler of the beers they make on premises. No appetizers, but they do run a grill. Over flow from the very small bar goes into the warehouse. Not bad ig the temperature is nice.

Love going here, all are welcome, great diverse group, laid back, friendly place where they respect and trust thier clients. It pretty much is an honor system, nice variety of beer, they have two excellent IPAs much better than Intuitions IPA.

If you want a fun place ( giant Janga, corn hole and rockem sockem robots) to just hang out and down some pints, this is the place.
