BOLD CITY BREWERY, JACKSONVILLE, CELEBRATES 9TH ANNIVERSARY, OCTOBER 21


Jacksonville, FL:  Jacksonville's first production craft brewery, Bold City Brewery, celebrates its 9th Anniversary with what promises to be another epic party at its Riverside location on Saturday, October 21, starting at 1pm. 

Bold City's annual anniversary bash might be well-known for its $2 pints, and that tradition will continue again this year, according to Kevin Miller, Sales Manager. Bold City fans can look forward to around 8-10 different Bold City beers on tap, including Barrel-Aged Duke's Brown Ale, Miller adds.


Much had been made over the summer about the travails of the brewery's encounter with the city Fire Marshal in July and subsequent renovation work required by the inspection. Miller confirms that work has been progressing, including the addition of several exit doors and accessible ramps. The good news for all concerned is that all three bars -- the tap room, inside brewery, and outside bar -- are expected to be up and running for the anniversary event.

Growing Bigger and Smaller: Bold City Brewery Opens in Downtown Jax April 21

Jacksonville's Bold City Brewery is getting bigger by going smaller. On Friday, April 21 at 11am, the city's first craft production brewery opens its second location: a new brewery and tap room in the heart of Downtown Jacksonville, at 109 E. Bay St.

In late 2015, the brewery officially announced plans to build the second location, but according to co-founder Brian Miller, Bold City Brewery had been looking at the downtown area since the Spring of that year. When the space next to the now under-construction Cowford Chop House became available, the brewery found its new spot.

Grand Slam for Beer Events in Jacksonville

With three breweries holding major events, and one popular food and craft beer market hosting an Oktoberfest celebration, it was a Grand Slam for beer around Jacksonville, Florida this past weekend! October 22 had been looming large on the brew calendar, as there were at least four other beerfests around the Sunshine State on the same day. 

While it may have seemed a daunting endeavor to attend four events in one day, this writer was up to the task, armed with a carefully-planned itinerary, camera, and refillable water bottle.

Blues, Brews & BBQ: Singin' the Brews at Florida Theatre, Jacksonville

[Ed. Note: 8/22/2016: Late addition to the BBQ lineup: Bow Leg'z BBQ]

If you've ever attended a concert or show at the Florida Theatre in downtown Jacksonville, you'll likely agree that every seat in the house is a good one and the acoustics enhance your experience at the historic ornate venue. After all, the theatre has been a leading entertainment center since 1927, and it's seen its share of different musical genres and entertainers over the years. As host of over 200 entertainment events annually, the Florida Theatre is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Of Bus Rides 'n Beer: From Bold City to Cigar City, Beer Bloggers Conference 2016 Covered It

Around this time last year, I was following the tweets from Asheville, NC as those attending the 2015 Beer Bloggers Conference energetically took to social media to report their real-time accounts of the activities. I noticed a blend of snippets about beer education and beer drinking -- not too surprising, I concluded. I thought that maybe I should attend one of these conferences in the future, and awaited the announcement of the 2016 Conference location. And, with a rising level of fanfare, there it was: TAMPA! WooHoo! That's only a 3.5 hour drive from my home base in North Florida, so I was immediately psyched.

Let's Have a Beer .... in Jacksonville, Fla! (repeat trip)

[NOTE: I thought it was time to write about the Jacksonville breweries, and, really, it's been long overdue. I am thrilled to have written this story especially for the Beer Bloggers Conference (BBC) 2016, and it was posted recently on the Beer Bloggers Conference website as a lead story. The Conference is held in a different beer-centric city each year. This time around, it heads to Tampa July 8-10, along with a featured pre-con visit to Jacksonville. I'm excited to be a part of the BBC this year and want to say "Thanks" to the BBC for this opportunity. This is the first in a series of the Jax area breweries, so stay tuned.  And, by the way, a special "thank you" goes out to the Jax area breweries!] ....

Jax to St. Augustine, 10-19-2013: A Day of Beer Fests

A Five-Year Anniversary and an Oktoberfest: Could've Used A Helicopter in NE Fla

Five Years for Bold City Brewery in Jax
What better reason to head over to Bold City Brewery than for its Five-Year Anniversary Party? Unbelievably, I had not visited this brewery before.  That was evident when I got a bit turned around and ended up further west.  When I passed European Street Market (which had an Oktoberfest of its own going on, with a German band and really cool hat giveaways), I figured it was time to bring out Google Maps.  A short while later, I made it to the brewery warehouse building, situated along some railroad tracks. Doesn't matter what it looks like, it's what they do that's important.  And, that's making beer. I like a number of the Bold City Brewery beers, but my favorite is Killer Whale Cream Ale. And, look who's looking over the whole place!
