Legacy Ale Works Plans Jacksonville Location With Kid-Friendly Entertainment

Mar 2, 2018

Legacy Ale Works has signed a lease to open a production and taproom facility at the Shoppes of Durbin Creek Plaza, located at the corner of Old St Augustine Road and Philips Highway.

The location will include a 1,000-square-foot production facility featuring a 3.5BBL brewhouse, as well as a 2,300-square-foot taproom and private event space, according to our Modern Cities partner.

Given the location, Legacy Ale Works owners Matthew and Elizabeth Jacobs wanted to create a casual, family-friendly atmosphere. With that in mind, Legacy Ale Works will include a kid-friendly entertainment area, and a pet-friendly outdoor courtyard patio. 

“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,” said 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.” 

“Though it feels like we are just getting started, we’ve been working on securing a location for almost one year,” said 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.”

The Jacobs plan to move forward with build-out quickly and hope their opening announcement will come by early summer.
