If you're a fan of craft brews, then the Jax Ale Trail is calling your name.

On the trail, beer lovers embark on a self-guided tour of seven craft breweries across the city of Jacksonville.

Local breweries on the tour include:

Participating local restaurants that brew their own beer include:

  • Ragtime in Neptune Beach
  • Zeta in Jacksonville Beach
  • Seven Bridges on the Southside
  • River City Brewing Company in Downtown Jacksonville

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.

"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.

Insider Tip: If you'd rather participate in a guided group tour, check out Jax Brew Bus or Play Harder Tours.
