Jacksonville Beer Week takes place April 2 – 7, 2012 with lots of different events around town. We will talk more about this event with Marc Wisdom on our TV show “I Know Jax” on Saturday March 31st, 11 p.m. on CW17.
One of the fun events during Beer Week is the downtown pub crawl. Here is the information:
The Springfield Brew Crew announces their first ever Downtown Pub Crawl in conjunction with Jacksonville Beer Week and sponsored by Intuition Ale Works. The pub crawl will take place Friday, April 6 with sign-in starting at 5:30 PM. The Jacksonville Landing Courtyard will serve as the starting point of the Pub Crawl. The pub crawl will begin at 7:00 PM and visit several downtown pubs and bars.
Marc Wisdom, the leader of the Springfield Brew Crew, said, “We chose the city core for this event to spotlight the many great nightlife venues available downtown.” The Brew Crew is based in the Historic Springfield neighborhood situated just north of the downtown area. “As a resident of Springfield, downtown is a frequent nighttime destination of mine, I want the rest of the city to discover how fun, safe, and walkable our city’s core really is.”
The cost of the pub crawl is just $15, all proceeds will go to help disadvantaged children living in the urban neighborhoods surrounding downtown Jacksonville. For the participation fee, crawlers will receive an acrylic pint glass with the Jacksonville Beer Week logo, one drink ticket, free admission to all venues, entry in raffles at each venue, and – for those who complete the entire crawl – entry in the Grand Prize drawings. One of the Grand Prizes is an Intuition Ale Works Mug Club membership. This coveted prize is unique because memberships are not currently available for purchase.
Tickets may be purchased online at: www.sprbrewcrew.com. Major credit cards are accepted.
The Springfield Brew Crew sponsors beer events in and around the Springfield Historic District and Jacksonville. The emphasis of the group is education about the history, styles, and appreciation of craft and import beers. It was founded in 2010 by Marc Wisdom.
