Hello BREW-tiful, we are here in the pursuit of HOPPiness and to bring you your guide to some of the best local breweries in Jacksonville! We love our local beer and the fact that Jax breweries host awesome events too. We BEER-lieve you are going to want to visit these breweries today so in no particular order, let’s jump into our favorite breweries in Jacksonville.
Fishweir Brewing is located in Murray Hill and is definitely a local favorite! We love everything they have on tap! Not only do they have locally inspired craft beers but they also serve cheese flights from another Murray Hill local, Grater Goods, and pretzels from Community Loaves. Why are we not there right now?
We recommend trying their Johnny Apple Sour & Glendale Pale Ale!
Bold City Brewery has 2 locations in the bold city; one on Rosselle street and one located on East Bay Street in downtown Jacksonville. Bold City started with home brewing in 2002 and is now one of the most iconic breweries! We love the Killer Whale Cream Ale and Duke’s Cold Nose Brown Ale so make sure to stop by and grab a glass.

When in doubt, get a stout! We love their Tilted Star Milk/Sweet Stout!

Wicked Barley is one of the most fun breweries because of their social atmosphere. They offer some of the best events, a full-service restaurant, a taproom, a patio, a pet-friendly beer garden, and a boat dock for those days you just want to cruise on up and grab a beer. They were voted Best Brew Pub in Florida by Best Florida Beer in 2017. Try the DUVAL ‘TIL WE DIE Black Lager with Lime Zest! It won’t disappoint.
Southern Swells is located in Jacksonville Beach and is a craft brewery and taproom! They opened in 2017 and have become a local favorite. They host private events and offer an outdoor patio. One of our favorite beers from here has been one of their sour beers called Slice: Blueberry Cobbler and we can’t even put into words how amazing it is so we encourage you to go try it for yourself.
Hyperion Brewing is located on North Main Street and they have a unique taproom experience. They also have a newly updated roof over the back patio and it looks BREW-tiful. Grab a flight, play table games & check out their secret garden. You can also bring the pups on the back patio!
Engine 15 Brewing Co. is located in Jacksonville Beach and Downtown Jacksonville. It is another great brewery that provides yummy bites from their pub menu. They have so many of their own beer creations along with a constant changing selection of guest beers from around the world. The downtown location is pet-friendly and family-friendly. Bring the whole family and check out that infamous J’ville Lager Beer.
Green Room Brewing is located in Jax Beach and is the first local microbrewery! They have a new beer every Thursday and good news…dogs are welcome. You can also bring your own food! This is a big space so we recommend this brewery for when you need a place for a group hangout. They have great vibes and even better beer.
Aardwolf Brewing is located on Hendricks Avenue and is also great for a group get-together! They are located in a renovated historic building so naturally, it is very hip. Fun fact: they won a medal at the Great American Beer Fest.
Legacy Ale Works is located on Old St. Augustine Road on the Southside of Jacksonville. It is family operated and this family has traveled from Key West to California studying dozens of breweries in order to produce great beer. They also offer food, wine, great events, parties, and more. We recommend the Iz Mah Birfday Stout and not only because the name is awesome but because it’s treated with raspberry and chocolate.
