Shrimp & Suds Craft Beer Festival On Deck at Baseball Grounds in Jax, March 10

January 11, 2018: Leading off the 2018 season for the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp is the second "Shrimp & Suds" Craft Beer Festival, at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville, on Saturday, March 10, from 6-9pm. 

Before the Jumbo Shrimp throw the first pitch and swing for the fences at the home opener on Wednesday, April 11, adult fans can enjoy the ballpark atmosphere and unlimited samples of craft beer from a variety of breweries, including many local Jacksonville area breweries, at the "Shrimp & Suds" fest. Last year, the Jumbo Shrimp introduced the new team logo and ballpark food menu items with the first craft beer fest on the decks of the stadium, and the popular fest returns as an evening event this time around. 


High Tailin': Jax Jumbo Shrimp Swing for the Fences on Opening Day!


[UPDATE, April 16: According to a press release dated April 16, attendance of 41,276 during the opening Jumbo Shrimp homestand April 12-16 was the highest attended series in the history of the Baseball Grounds! The figure represents an increase of 57% over last season's opening series. Congrats, Jumbo Shrimp!]

When the (former) Jacksonville Suns Minor League Baseball team changed its name, logo and branding to the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp last November, you gotta admit that one of the first things you probably said to yourself (amid a chuckle or two) was "What?" Over the past five months following that news, the Jumbo Shrimp front office took to the media in the hopes of getting the city pumped up to cheer on the newly-proclaimed "Crustacean Nation." The new name and colorful shrimp character of the AA-Affiliate of the Major League Baseball Miami Marlins (whose Class A Advanced Affiliate is the Jupiter Hammerheads, by the way) seemed to be catching on. As April 12 Opening Day approached, the team touted its revamped food menu and upcoming season-long promotional events, held a contest to name the new Shrimp mascot, and even hosted a "Shrimp & Suds" Craft Beer Fest at the ballpark on April 1 (no April Fools there). 


It looks like the team netted some pretty awesome results, too, because a record Opening Day crowd of 10,477 was on hand at the Baseball Grounds for last night's Home Opener against the Chattanooga Lookouts. The fans were treated to a 7-1 Jumbo Shrimp victory and a fireworks display following the game.
