They taste like the coast and remind you of a peaceful place - like the golf cour--- I mean, the beach.
I have lived all over the country. I’ve explored some delicious and many lackluster craft brews in the mid-western states; the trying-way-too-hard bitter IPAs of Colorado; and the no-nonsense ales in Boston.
With every region comes a distinct character of beer produced by various craft breweries. As someone who almost always drinks local beer and loves to spend time tasting the local craft brew culture no matter where I am, I have found that I like Northern Florida beers the most; and I particularly love the brews that are native to my hometown.
Full disclosure: I’m *slightly* biased because I’m native to Jacksonville and... I happen to be a golf-enthusiast. And one thing you will learn is, no craft beer fits on the fairway quite like a Florida brew!
Thus, my top 5 favorite craft brews live right here in Jacksonville, so next time you are in North Florida, it’s time to take a tour of our breweries.So here it is! I have personally taken the liberty of breaking down the top 5 craft brews you must try in Jacksonville by various recommended types.
