Aardwolf to celebrate one year of great beer

aardwolfIt seems like just yesterday rumors began flying around the local craft beer scene that Michael Payne, the mastermind behind Pinglehead Brewing Company, and Preben Olsen, formerly the beer byer or Grassroots Market in Five Points were collaborating on a brewery. In those days the thought was something of a dream; two great beer minds coming together to bring even more great craft beer to the burgeoning Jacksonville scene. The brewery was dubbed Aardwolf and the duo set out to take local tap rooms and beers up a notch.

Tomorrow the realization of the dream celebrates its one-year anniversary with a party at the brewery and several special one-off beers. The party is not for the brewery’s anniversary in a traditional sense, most businesses celebrate one year in operation, Aardwolf has been open for 18 months. The anniversary being celebrated tomorrow is of the brewery serving its own beers for the first time.

To commemorate the occasion, a slew of one-off and special beers have been produced including:

  • Apple Cinnamon Ol’ Ale
  • Strawberry Habanero Farm to Table Saison
  • Lime Ginger Hasselhoffenweisse
  • Chocolate Orange Styrofoam Pony

Party attendees can also purchase a special one-year anniversary pint glass.

To keep partiers fed, On The Fly food truck will be serving their regular are in the parking lot.

The party begins at 3:00 p.m. and goes until 11:00 p.m. Aardwolf Brewing Company is located at:

1461 Hendricks Ave.
Jacksonville, FL

Michael Payne of Aardwolf Brewing interviewed on “I Know Jax”

Michael Payne is the co-owner and brewer at Aardwolf Brewing Co. in the San Marco neighborhood of Jacksonville, Fla. Since opening earlier this year, the Tap Room at the brewery has been getting rave reviews not only for their excellent menu of fine craft beers, but also for its sheer beauty. In this segment, I interview Michael and ask him about what it was like to get things rolling at Aardwolf and what we can expect in the future.

Be sure to tune in to “I Know Jax” every Saturday night at 8:00 p.m. and midnight on CW17 in Jacksonville for more from the Beer Guy!
