The Jacksonville Planning Commission on Thursday approved a zoning exception to allow Brewz at 2695 Post St. to serve beer and wine for on- and off-premise consumption.
WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record reports that Brewz founder Brian Slucker purchased the former Dahlia's Pour House in April. He owns two other Brewz locations in Atlantic Beach and Bartram Park.
Slucker said his group selected the location at Post and King streets "because we thought our concept would fit into the Riverside culture."
"We felt if we could get into the Downtown we would be able to serve most of the population of Jacksonville," he said.
Slucker plans to renovate the back room for a comedy club and shuffleboard, table tennis and a golf simulator.
Brewz will offer 45 taps featuring 30 styles of craft beer from around the world.
