For the 5th Annual Jacksonville Craft and Import Beer Festival, we are pulling out all the stops. This year’s largest beer festival is expanding to use all 3 levels of the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena, and the entire Arena floor to ensure plenty of space for all patrons, and for all of the new beer and restaurant booths and entertainment! The most impressive selection of American craft beers and imported beers from around the world will be available to sample with also the addition of an ULTRA VIP TICKET and other beer experiences. For those who celebrate and search for great beer join us at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena, to experience the rich, bold, and unique flavors you can only get at this event.
The 2013 Jacksonville Craft and Import Beer Festival promises to be better than last year, and the best one to date. We have expanded our VIP tastings and privileges, so this is the one time being a VIP is worth it. We invite you to join us and your fellow beer enthusiast to sample over 45 different breweries with well over 300 beers to taste. Several local restaurants are participating and serving up great food to pair with the wide selection of beer samples. Several different live music acts including Something Distant, will keep you entertained and your feet taping, as well as a few different DJ’s to keep you flowing with the beer.
This event will also be hosting a silent auction and other prize give-aways with proceeds going to the Southside Businessmen’s Club Charities, JAX Chamber West Council, and a few more non-profit organizations. This festival allows you to not only sample some of the absolute best beers in the world, but also learn more about them. You will get an inside look at the industry and be put on the short track to becoming a beer aficionado.
