Local breweries on the tour include:
- Aardwolf Brewing Company

- Veterans United Craft Brewery
Participating local restaurants that brew their own beer include:

When you book the tour, you'll receive a Jax Ale Trail Brewery Passport, which you'll want to have stamped at each of the breweries for chances to receive prizes.
The passport is free and you can pick one up at any of the breweries as well as the Visit Jacksonville Visitor Centers in downtown or at the Jacksonville Landing.
"We are very excited to participate in the Jax Ale Trail and proud to represent Jacksonville as a thriving craft beer destination. Cheers!” says Christina Bradford, Marketing Coordinator at the newest brewery in town, Veterans United Craft Brewery.
