Patrons enjoy Myrtle Avenue Brewing, a microbrewery and beer garden at the former Engine 15 production facility in the Rail Yard District near Downtown Jacksonville.

Myrtle Avenue Brewing with 11 craft beers on tap, rustic community tables plus a children's play area amid a plant-filled outdoor beer garden, invites friends, families and neighbors to gather together, relax and have a good time.
