This week in town, there is a special little event going on called Jax Beer Week. I will admit, the event officially began on Sunday, so this post is a bit late, but that doesn’t mean you’ve missed out on everything in store for this glorious week of local beer.

This year marks the third annual Jax Beer Week and will run from May 25 to 31. So, what exactly is Jax Brew Week? It is an annual gathering of local breweries who are teaming up with some of the best restaurants in the city to celebrate the growth of Jacksonville’s craft beer scene. There are several events planned throughout the week, and even though you may have missed a couple of days, there is still much to come.
