A Whale of an Oktoberfest: Green Room Brewing, Jax Beach

It'll be a Whale of an OKTOBERFEST at GREEN ROOM BREWING on Saturday, October 1,
as the brewery hosts its annual Oktoberfest celebration, along with its bottle release of SAVE THE WHALE Imperial Stout. You'll be able to celebrate the Gemütlichkeit of OKTOBERFEST, along with helping out the migratory right whales. That sounds like a reason to party!


Twice the Oompah at Engine 15 Brewing Oktoberfest

Did I really end up with three
beers at Engine 15 Oktoberfest?
OKTOBERFEST is in full swing! The 183rd official Oktoberfest in Munich has been going strong for over a week now, with 5 days to go. Can you imagine all that German beer flowing in Bavaria? If you didn't get a ticket to Germany, no need to fret -- Thanks to Oktoberfest celebrations happening around Florida, we have plenty of Gemütlichkeit (and beer) to go around the Sunshine State, too. If you haven't seen my earlier Oktoberfest post, don't wait any longer, or you'll miss out (and we wouldn't want that to happen)! The upcoming weekend features a number of Oktoberfest celebrations around the state, so get those dirndls and lederhosen out of your closet and mach schnell to the nearest place you hear the Oompah music. 


Prost! Get Your Boot and Your Mass (Maẞ) in Gear: Oktoberfest 2016 is Here

PROST! Oktoberfest 2015 at Engine 15 Brewing ... Having a Maẞ
[Ed. Note, 9/17/2016: I have added several events since the original posting on 9/13, as certain events were announced after the publication]

Is there any more festive time of year in the beer world than OKTOBERFEST? 





Jax Beer Week: Gettin' It Started September 17

Mark your calendars for the 4th Annual JAX BEER WEEK, September 17-24, 2016.  The week will feature over 50 events all around Jacksonville's local breweries, brewpubs, restaurants, bars and bottle shops, including beer dinners, beer and food pairings, spotlights and special releases. 


Aardwolf Brewing: Brewing Up a Third Anniversary Party in Jacksonville


Hendricks Street in the San Marco area of Jacksonville will be hoppin' on Saturday, September 10, as AARDWOLF BREWING COMPANY celebrates its 3rd Anniversary with an all-day party and special hourly tappings beginning at 2pm.

Aardwolf burst on the Florida beer scene in early 2013, and its 15-barrel brewhouse produces a wide variety of beer styles, from Belgian Ales to Sours to IPAs to Brown Ales to Imperial Stouts to Barrel-aged beers and everything in between. In that short time, the brewery has earned eight competition medals, including a Bronze Medal at GABF 2015 (Great American Beer Fest) for its Belgian Pale Ale (malty pale ale with Belgian yeast), and a Bronze at this year’s Best Florida Beer Championships for its San Marco Sour (sour blonde ale). A couple of the most unique beers you’re likely to find in Jacksonville just may be Aardwolf’s Lactic Zeppelin, a Berliner Weisse with the funk of Brettanomyces, and Hipster Popsicle, a cherry lime gose.


Intuition Ale Works: New Downtown Jax Brewery & Tap Room Pretty Easy on the Eyes

Whoa .... 
The "new" Intuition Ale Works at 929 E. Bay St., Jacksonville

OK, I admit that might not be the most professional way to start an article about one of the most anticipated brewery events in Jacksonville (if not the state). It's been in planning for a few years, and it's been under construction for the past few months. If you follow the local craft beer scene, you're aware of the "big" move. In late August, INTUITION ALE WORKS formally announced September 6 as the day it will open the doors of its new downtown Jacksonville brewery, tap room and rooftop beer garden at 929 E. Bay Street to the public.
