LEGACY ALE WORKS ANNOUNCES PLANS FOR BARTRAM AREA BREWERY AND TAPROOM
Legacy Ale Works, LLC, a brewery in planning announced Thursday their plans to open a brewery and taproom in the Bartram Area. A lease has been signed on 3300SF of space in the Shoppes at Durbin Creek Plaza located at 14965 Old St. Augustine Rd., Ste 129-130, Jacksonville, FL 32258, located on the corner of Old St. Augustine Rd and US1.
Plans for the brewery include a 1000SF production area equipped with a 3.5BBL brewhouse and a 2300SF tap room featuring ample seating for patrons, private event space and designated kid-friendly entertainment area. In addition, the space will include an outdoor courtyard patio with additional seating and live music.
Though there are no current plans for a restaurant within the brewery, food options within the plaza include sushi, Italian, BBQ, Mexican and a bakery. Guests are welcome to bring in outside food.
Owners Matthew and Elizabeth Jacobs share that their vision is to offer quality craft beer, a welcoming, casual atmosphere and a family-friendly and accommodating environment to their patrons. Their courtyard will also welcome pet families.
“We have taken note of successful customer experiences from the many breweries we have visited across the U.S. and we hope to embody all of these traits in our new home,” says co-owner Liz Jacobs. “Simple creature comforts like lounge seating in the tap room as well as baby changing tables in both men’s and women’s bathrooms are the types of details we hope our customers will really appreciate and enjoy.”
Head brewer Matt Jacobs showcased his most recent beer creations at the Riverside Craft Beer Festival last weekend and will be offering new selections at the Hogtown Craft Beer Festival in Gainesville on April 23rd .
“Though it feels like we are just getting started, we’ve been working on securing a location for almost 1 year,” shares Matt. “ We are excited to finally be reaching the next stage in our planning process. This is where things will begin to move really fast and we couldn’t be happier.”.
Legacy will be working with Roy Williams Architecture on design of the 3300SF space. Though the company is currently in the early stages of zoning approval and as no clear zoning rights exist for breweries and taprooms, Legacy Ale Works plans to move forward with build-out quickly and hopes their opening announcement will come by early Summer.
