Through a number of business commitments and community spirit, Springfield -- the urban neighborhood just north of downtown Jacksonville with Main Street as its epicenter -- has seen a recent resurgence and renewed vitality.

Hyperion Brewing Taps Into History as Jacksonville's First Nano-Brewery Opens

Named after one of the mythological Titan siblings who was the father of Helios (Sun), Selene (Moon) and Eos (Dawn), Jacksonville's newest brewery Hyperion Brewing Company draws upon Greek mythology and local history as it looks ahead to a bright future. The brewery holds its Grand Opening on Friday, May 19, beginning with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 4:30pm, followed by the 5pm official opening of the doors at 1740 N. Main Street in the Springfield neighborhood. The first 50 guests will receive a souvenir glass and a ticket for a free pour on the next visit. Eddis & Sons food truck will be on site with cheesesteak sandwiches. The Grand Opening weekend coincides with the Historic Springfield Tour of Homes on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

March 28, 2017: HYPERION BREWING COMPANY, JACKSONVILLE, ANNOUNCES GRAND OPENING DATE OF MAY 19, 2017


Jacksonville, FL: New Jacksonville brewery Hyperion Brewing Company has announced its Grand Opening date as May 19, 2017 in a press release. Hyperion Brewing has appeared at a number of beerfests and sampling events over the past couple of years, and it is time for the brewery to serve its housemade beers at its own location. Hyperion Brewing is located at 1740 N. Main St. in the Springfield district of Jacksonville, just north of downtown. The principals are owner Alexandra McKeown and Brewmaster Troy Orton. In December, following approval by the Land Use Zoning approval, the brewery immediately began moving forward with renovation and construction in the space occupied by a former pawn shop (see prior story).

Upstart Brewery Hyperion Brewing Company, Jacksonville, Offering Pre-Construction Tour Saturday, January 7

Following a final vote and Land Use Zoning approval in December, Hyperion Brewing Company is wasting no time in moving ahead with its construction plans. The new nano-brewery, located at 1740 N. Main Street, just north of downtown in Jacksonville's Springfield area, is taking over property occupied by a former pawn shop. According to Alexandra ("Alex") McKeown, Hyperion owner, the space is essentially empty, and any remaining demolition work should be minimal, paving the way for the build-out.

Last year, McKeown and head brewer/partner Troy Orton held several free tastings around Jacksonville where the public sampled some of the upcoming brews that the brewery will feature once opened. At this stage, Hyperion intends to pour its house beer from 12-15 taps. McKeown isn't committing to an opening date just yet, allowing the construction to dictate when the doors will formally open and thereby avoiding opening delays. 


The public is invited to attend a pre-construction tour of the venue Saturday, January 7, between 10:30 am -12pm, at which time Alex and Troy will be on hand to answer questions about the zoning approval process, the upcoming construction, and, of course, the beer!  Alex and Troy will share the building plans and give attendees background information about their new community brewery. Guests will be treated to a complimentary mimosa (age 21+) (please RSVP via Hyperion's Facebook page so that they can be sure to have enough glasses and mimosas). 

While the total brewery space measures approximately 5000 sf, roughly half of that will be used initially, for the tap room and a small production area, says Alex. Plans call for an additional production area which will be developed in response to brewery growth down the line. The venue will also offer an outdoor seating area at the rear of the building, and the brewery intends to partner with local food trucks for on-site dining options. 


Hyperion Brewing will feature a constantly-rotating tap list, without a "core" group of beers. The brewery website exclaims "We prefer flights to flagships." In a "rebellious spirit," the brewery intends to create a range of beers from classics to "forgotten styles" while "pushing the limit" of craft beer. The point of the wide variety is to give guests something new to always try, says Alex. Hyperion wants to make visits to the tap room engaging, while allowing patrons to "discover something new" each time, as well as looking forward to and enjoying return experiences. If the prior tastings were any indication, the format will also allow brewer Troy to showcase the many different types of beer that he has created (this writer enjoyed a number of them, from the Salted Caramel Porter, Irish Red, IPA, English Bitter, and Milk Stout, to the Imperial IPA). 

Hyperion Brewing expects to provide updates on its construction progress as things go forward, culminating with an announcement about opening day.  

The New Year is bringing New Beer, and more new breweries across the Sunshine State. Lots of choices, and more new beer to experience!

Til next time,
Cheers,




Linda
