The Blind Fig
The Blind Fig teams up with Engine 15 for a beer dinner featuring tasty pairings and loads of fun.

The dinner will feature four delicious courses and five outstanding brews. Tickets to the event are $50 per person and can be purchased in advance by calling the restaurant at (904) 337-0146 or at the door. The reception beer will be served beginning at 6:30 p.m.

Pinglehead Brewing Company/Brewer’s Pizza
Taproom release – Green Room Brewing Company Thin Mint Stout

Intuition Ale Works
Taproom release — Tequila Barrel-Aged House Boat with Lime & Salt

Black Sheep Restaurant
If there is one thing you need to know about this restaraurant housed in the eye-catching wedge-shaped building just outside of the Five Points area of Riverside, it is that you must try the poutine. The dish – French fries mixed with cheddar cheese curds and covered in rich, beef short-rib gravy – is so good that many guests go just for a fix of it. But, poutine is far from the end of the list of reasons to visit the eatery. Another good reason is the views from one of the only roof-top restaurant seating areas in Jacksonville. And, then there is the craft beer they keep on tap.

To celebrate Jax Beer Week, stop in as the Blk Shp crew taps a special Cigar City keg.

Grape & Grain Exchange
Speakeasies were once the only place for a thirsty person to get a potent potable. But, since the abolition of prohibition, the often glamorous hidden gems have gone by the wayside. But, if you are in the know, you can gain access to one of these backroom bars in San Marco right on the Square. Grape & Grain Exchange offers a self-service style beer cooler and signature mixed drinks in its front room but, behind the bookshelf is a cozy, swanky hideaway the harkens back to the flapper era.

Join the in-the-know crowd for a Cigar City cheese and beer pairing at G&GX for Jax Beer Week. But, be sure to get there early as seating is very limited.

The Silver Cow
The Silver Cow will be celebrating Jax Beer Week with the First Family of Craft Beer in Jacksonville – the Millers of Bold City Brewery tonight, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. The Bold City Brewery family will bring with them some very cool Bold City swag.

The King Street Beer District watering hole will tap Bold City’s Bourbon Barrel Aged Chinook, Abby’s Ale as well as their ever-popular Duke’s Cold Nose Brown Ale, Killer Whale Cream Ale and Man Manatee IPA available in cans.

The Cow will also be selling Abby’s Ale posters for $35 each with all proceeds going to First Coast No More Homeless Pets along with $1 from every Abby’s Ale pint sold.

Featured dishes coming from The Silver Cow kitchen tonight include:

  • Creole tomato and goat cheese bruschetta made with Abby’s Ale
  • Shrimp Creole made with Killer Whale Cream Ale
  • Crawfish Quesadillas made with Dukes Cold Nose Brown Ale

The Jax Beer Guy has partnered with the UBER car service in Jacksonville. Because of this partnership, you can receive a $20 credit for your first ride by simply using the promo code “JaxBeerGuy” when you register for UBER on your smartphone.
