Lip-smackin' Sips and Bites at Annual Blues, Brews & BBQ Held at Historic Florida Theatre, Jax

The Florida Theatre's Blues, Brews & BBQ,
presented by Publix Super Markets Charities
August 27, 2018: An entertainment venue such as The Florida Theatre usually evokes thoughts of "sights and sounds." On Thursday, August 23, attendees at the annual Blues, Brews and BBQ fest, held at the historic downtown Jacksonville landmark, could also add the sensory perception of "tastes" to the repertoire, as this event featured lip-smackin' sips and bites from local breweries and restaurants. From the bales of hay at the check-in doors to the red-checkered tablecloths and aromas of barbecue throughout, the theatre was transformed into a tasty night of food, craft beer, and music.  

The pictures pretty much tell the story, so let's get to it! While the photos are unable to convey the taste delights that undoubtedly made tongues and taste buds happy, this site cannot be responsible for any hunger pains or thirst that might result ...

"There is a natural alliance between the Florida Theatre, one of our city's premier arts institutions, and the best craft professionals working in our city's culinary arts' community," said Numa Saisselin, Florida Theatre President. "For $50, you get all the local craft beer you can drink and all the local BBQ you can eat, plus four hours of continuous live Blues music by two of our city's best Blues bands ... and it all benefits the historic, nonprofit Florida Theatre."

Blues, Brews & BBQ at Florida Theatre, Jax: Eat, Drink, & Groove ... and Repeat!

It was tough to decide what to do first: get a craft beer from one of the local Jacksonville breweries or delve right into some saucy, lip-smackin' barbecue! Jacksonville's historic Florida Theatre hosted one tasty event last night at its annual Blues, Brews & BBQ fundraiser. The night featured seven local Jacksonville breweries and brewpubs, alongside six barbecue joints, with the sounds of smooth blues coming from the main stage. It was a night of sensory delight!

Located on the first floor were Engine 15 Brewing, Veterans United Craft Brewery, Intuition Ale Works, 4 Rivers Smokehouse, Mojo No. 4, and Gilbert's Social. Upstairs on the level two were Bold City Brewery, Wicked Barley Brewing, Seven Bridges Grille & Brewery, River City Brewing, The Bearded Pig, Butt Hutt, and Monroe's Smokehouse & BBQ. Music was provided by Smokestack and The Snacks Blues Band.
