Making HEADlines: Permits Issued for Legacy Ale Works, Jacksonville

LEGACY ALE WORKS, JACKSONVILLE, RECEIVES APPROVAL AND PERMITS FROM CITY; CONSTRUCTION UNDERWAY ON BREWERY AND TAP ROOM

October 26, 2018, Jacksonville, FL:


Brewery-in-planinng Legacy Ale Works has announced that the City of Jacksonville has approved construction of its brewery and tap room, located at 14965 Old St. Augustine Rd. in the Bartram Park area. With permits issued, brewery owners Matt and Elizabeth Jacobs have brought on Horn Builders, a residential and commercial construction firm, for the $185,000 build-out of the 3300 square-foot venue.



Construction is anticipated to take three to four months, said Matt Jacobs in a statement. “From there, we will work aggressively to install all the equipment and obtain the necessary permits to brew and sell beer. All in all, we are pushing for an early 2019 opening, barring any other delays.”


The husband-and-wife co-owners encountered unexpected delays in the re-zoning process and during finalization of architectural plans. “A few things popped up along the way that caused us to pause and evaluate our needs for the space,” said Elizabeth Jacobs. “As eager as we are to move forward with the project, we did not want to rush this part of the process, as the choices we make now could dramatically affect us in the future.”

With the hiring of Chuck Horn, owner of Horn Builders, the Legacy Ale Works owners benefit from Horn’s prior experience building and opening Atlantic Beach Brewing Company, where Horn is a co-owner. “Chuck has been a huge asset for us since he fully understands the needs of a brewery,” added Elizabeth Jacobs. “His expertise in our industry as it relates to construction is two-fold, since he understands both the code requirements of the city as well as the needs of the bar and brewery. It really was the best choice for us, and we are looking forward to dramatic changes happening soon.”

Legacy Ale Works has appeared around Jacksonville over the past couple of years sampling beers and promoting the brewery’s loyalty club, the LegacyMakers. With construction underway, further progress updates will follow.

Making HEADlines: New Jax Brewery Legacy Ale Works Moves Through Re-Zoning Approval

JACKSONVILLE BREWERY-IN-PLANNING LEGACY ALE WORKS MOVES THROUGH RE-ZONING APPROVAL

June 28, 2018, Jacksonville, FL:

Further to social media posts earlier this week, Jacksonville brewery-in-planning Legacy Ale Works announced today via formal statement that it obtained re-zoning approval from the City Council by a  15-0 vote this past Tuesday evening. 

In early March, the new brewery announced that after months of searching, it had signed a lease at 14965 Old St. Augustine Rd., Suite 129, Jacksonville. The space is located at the corner of US 1 and Old St. Augustine Rd. in the Bartram Park area.

Now that the zoning process is behind them, brewery owners Matt and Liz Jacobs will begin construction on the 3300sf space that will be home to the brewery and tap room. "We are excited about the next steps in our journey," said Liz Jacobs. "Our equipment has been delivered, and our plans will be ready to submit to the city for review and approval sometime next week."

Legacy Ale Works intends to bring its "easy drinking" beers to its new tap room on the south end of Jacksonville, just north of the St. Johns County/Duval County line. While "selecting this location was very important to us," said owner Matt Jacobs, he added that the new brewery aims "to serve an area of Jacksonville that does not currently have many craft beer options. The response we have received from the community so far has been very encouraging."

Matt and Liz Jacobs have offered samples of the house-brewed beers at appearances around the Jacksonville area, beginning last summer at Beer:30 San Marco. They also poured their beers at Jacksonville PorchFest last November, at Riverside Craft Beer Fest in February, and twice at Hogtown Craft Beer Fest in Gainesville last year and earlier this year. 







Legacy Ale Works will appear at Brewz Bartram Park, 14866 Old St. Augustine Rd., on Saturday, June 30, at 2pm, where they will pour  samples of their beers and meet and greet the public. This time, in addition to talking about their beer, they will now be able to discuss their new location and construction plans.

With their 3.5-barrel brewhouse, the new brewery will offer a wide variety of beer, from light lagers and pilsners, to hoppy IPAs, porters, and stouts, in order to "appeal to all different tastes and preferences." In addition to beer, the tap room will also serve wine and non-alcoholic craft sodas for non-beer drinkers. 

Legacy Ale Works plans an early Fall 2018 opening, with an estimated 8-12 week construction timeframe. 

Congratulations to Legacy Ale Works, and stay tuned for more progress updates throughout the summer!

Cheers,

LEGACY ALE WORKS, JAX BREWERY-IN PLANNING, ANNOUNCES LEASE SIGNING FOR NEW LOCATION

March 2, 2018, Jacksonville, FL:

Legacy Ale Works announced via its website and social media on March 1 that it has signed a lease on 3300 SF of space in the City's Bartram Park neighborhood, at 14965 Old St. Augustine Rd., at the intersection of US 1 in the Shoppes of Durbin Creek plaza. Owners Matt and Liz Jacobs had initially searched for properties in the Mandarin area, but after a lengthy search decided on the Bartram Park area.


Plans for the neighborhood brewery and tap room include a 1000-SF brewery operating from a 3.5-barrel brewhouse, and a 2300-SF tap room. Matt has already conducted several tastings around the area and has appeared at several beerfests to introduce the public to Legacy Ale Works and its beers. The beers cover all different styles. 

The brewery now begins the permitting stage. 

Read the March 1 news release here.

For a personal look at the couple behind the new brewery, read the Q&A on this site from last summer. 

Congratulations to Legacy Ale Works!

JAX BEER WEEK 2017: NOVEMBER 4-11


Jax Beer Week kicks off November 4 at Jacksonville PorchFest. The Springfield music fest will also offer a beer garden, highlighting beer from local Jacksonville breweries. Over 20 different beers in a variety of styles will be available. Beer trucks will pour beer in Klutho Park, and the beer can be enjoyed while walking around the neighborhood listening to the music on front porches. 

The main beer list at PorchFest includes local favorites from Bold City Brewery, Engine 15 Brewing, Green Room Brewing, Aardwolf Brewing, Veterans United Craft Brewery, Intuition Ale Works, Pinglehead Brewing, Zeta Brewing, Wicked Barley Brewing and Atlantic Beach Brewing. Several beers by popular Florida breweries Cigar City Brewing and Funky Buddha Brewery will also be served. Additional beverage options include ciders from Engine 15 and Cigar City, and a variety of wines. Beer will be available from noon-9pm. Beer will be sold by ticket per individual cup, at $5 each. 


Collaboration Beer: Local Jacksonville area breweries, including Hyperion Brewing, Veterans United Craft Brewery, Atlantic Beach Brewing and Zeta Brewing, recently brewed a Jax Beer Week collaboration beer, the SouRed Society, at Intuition Ale Works. According to Intuition Head Brewer Andrew Cattell, the beer is a dry-hopped sour red ale, similar to last year's collaboration beer. The beer is expected to be available at PorchFest, and look for it around Jax.

In addition, Jacksonville brewery-in-planning Legacy Ale Works will offer complimentary samples (while supplies last) of two of its beers, a spiced red ale and a dunkelweizen, according to brewery co-owner Liz Jacobs. For a Q&A interview with Matt and Liz Jacobs before their first local tasting earlier this summer, click here

PorchFest Sponsors and donor Patrons will also enjoy a designated VIP seating area near the main stage. Between 5-6pm, the VIP tent will offer a complimentary VIP Happy Hour featuring hors d'oeuvres and beer tastings from local breweries-in-planning Legacy Ale Works and Strings Sports Brewery, along with Hyperion Brewing and Main & Six Brewing. 

PorchFest hosted a pre-party at Sweet Pete's Candy in Downtown Jax on Thursday evening, November 2, which featured beer samplings by Legacy Ale Works, Strings Sports Brewery, and Hyperion Brewing.

Also happening on Saturday, November 4: new brewery Main & Six Brewing Company officially opens its doors to the public with a Grand Opening celebration, beginning at noon. Check out the new brewery before you even get there, with a behind-the-scenes pre-opening early look, along with an interview of co-owner Dennis Espinosa.  The brewery held a soft opening on Friday night, November 3, to get ready for the huge opening day ahead:

Irmafest: Oktoberfest beer named after, well, you know.
A malty marzen with a nutty character.

Finished tap room: see the before photos.
Tables are all refinished now.
Note the hexagon floor -- see the pre-story!

We need a beer!
Big Jim California Common:
named after the local steam whistle.
Malty and hoppy at the same time.

Look for tappings, takeovers, and tastings all over Jacksonville and Jax Beach throughout the week. A calendar of events can be found on the "Tap This" page right here on brewnymph.com. 

On Sunday, November 5, join the crew from the up-and-coming Strings Sports Brewery at Hyperion Brewing, where both breweries will introduce their collaboration beer, a Sweet Potato Brown Ale. Also on Sunday, Alewife hosts its annual Jax Beer Week Bottle Share. 

And, going retro for a minute: there were two new beer releases on Friday, November 3: Atlantic Beach Brewing's first bottle release of its new Cafecito de Cuba; and Southern Swells Brewing's first can releases: Truth Juice DIPA, and In a Galaxy Really Really Close By IPA - check those out on the new video "Let's Get a Beer, Florida!"

That's just for starters, and there are even more events going on all week. Your weekly calendar just filled up!

Happy Jax Beer Week!  See you around Jax this week!
