WHAT IS THE JACKSONVILLE CRAFT AND IMPORT BEER FESTIVAL?
We create a setting for you to sample some of the best craft and imported beer available. We will have over 40 participating breweries bringing more than 300 different beers to taste.
The Craft and Import Beer Festival is adding more experiences in 2016 including beer dinners leading up to the event held throughout the week at local restaurants as well as private sampling opportunities in the arena the night of the festival.
This year we have added in the Beer Aficionado ticket giving real beer enthusiasts the opportunity to leave work early and show up at 4pm for a private beer sampling event with heavy hor dourves. Also they will get discounts on beer dinners held the week of the event. A gift bag will be waiting for you once you arrive with gifts from local and national breweries and sponsors.
The Beer Fanatic ticket will have the opportunity to arrive early and stay late at the afterparty from 9-10pm and the Beer Lover ticket will get to experience the festivities from 6-9 pm.
Group discounts are available for parties of 12 or more by calling mike at 904-232-3001.
If you are a member of the meetup group, the Grapes and Hops club, you will be invited to a special event in the arena the night of the event. (http://www.meetup.com/wine-372/)
