Welcome to the Jacksonville Craft & Import Beer Festival

For the 7th Annual Craft & Import Beer Festival we have set our date for 2015.  The largest Beer Festival in all of Northern Florida will be at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena Friday, May15th from 6-10pm.  Please stay tuned for further announcements for the next great Craft & Import Beer Festival!!

What is the Jacksonville Craft and Import Beer FestivalWe try to create a setting to let our ticket holder sample some of the best selected craft and imported beer to choose from. We also work with the local breweries to showcase what they are offering as well.  This unique festival has the beer as the entertainment, but offers much more.  We bring in 20 plus local restaurants to pair with our beer selections.  Our local restaurants provide several thousand samples to the patrons to not only try featured recipes, but to also provide something to put in our patrons' stomachs.  Also included in your ticket besides free beer & food samples is the entertainment.  The Craft & Import Beer Festival keeps our guests going with two featured bands as well as two of the best area DJ's. This festival uses the large (indoor & air-conditioned) space available at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena to ensure plenty of room for all patrons, for all of the new beer and restaurant booths, as well as the entertainment!
