No Beer Festival in Jacksonville This Year

The Florida Brewers Guild beer festival has been cancelled. It was originally planned May 31st, the final day of Jax Beer Week.

According to the Florida-Times Union, Eric Luman, brewer and co-owner at Green Room Brewing in Jacksonville Beach, said he worked hard to plan it with city officials. They just found a location but it was too late to meet a 90-day deadline for submitting the required paperwork.

This would have been the guild’s first beer festival in North Florida.

Jax Beer Week starts May 25th with a brewers’ brunch at Mellow Mushroom Southside.
