Intuition Ale Works celebrates 4 years of craft beer brewing excellence

Has it really been four years? … WOW! … time flies when you’re drinking great craft beer! IntuitionAleWorks

Thinking back to the earliest days of Jax Brew Bitch, companion and I remember how excited we would get as we would approach Intuition’s taproom door. What new creation awaited us? … what new friendship would we begin? Which spectacular staff member would be serving us?

Guess what? … we STILL get just as excited pondering all those possibilities as we enter Intuition Ale Works today!

Intuition Ale Works (720 King Street – 904.683.7720) is turning FOUR YEARS OLD!

The big anniversary celebration takes place at the brewery on Saturday, November 22nd but the team at Intuition will be celebrating the whole week leading up to that day. Here are the details about all of their amazing events!

Intuition will be releasing at least one new beer in the tap room every day from Tuesday (November 18) until Friday (November 21). Here’s the line up:

TUESDAY: State Line w/ Habanero

WEDNESDAY: Cantaloupe Saison w/ Cracked Pepper

THURSDAY: Smoke IPA w/ Pineapple

FRIDAY: Golden Graham Jon Boat

Please keep in mind that each beer will ONLY be available the day it is released. Then, on Saturday (November 10394082_10152479958266453_6063427141845296587_n22), all the beers will be available in the brewery and tap room. There will be 20+ special release brews on tap for the big anniversary bash!


Interested in trying all 20+ beers? With the Beer Passport you can win prizes for trying them all.

Beer Passports will be available in the tap room starting Tuesday ( November 18). The folks at Intuition will be serving up 7-ounce pours of all their brews. Every time you drink a brew that week, you’ll receive a stamp on your passport to keep track of the beers you’ve tried. If you try twenty or more beers by Saturday (November 22), you’ll get a voucher for a gallon growler and a fill of your favorite brew. PLUS you’ll be entered into a raffle to win $100 tap room dollars!

PLEASE KEEP IN MIND that they are only printing 100 Beer Passports – so make sure to come and get yours on Tuesday!


Join Intuition Ale Works as they kick-off their anniversary week with a tap takeover at Pele’s Wood Fire! They’ll have 15 taps devoted to Intuition’s creations and will be offering happy hour all night long. That means $3 Jon Boat, $3.50 I-10 AND $5 pizzas! The Intuition crew will be there with giveaways.


Intuition is partnering up with Black Sheep Restaurant in 5 Points for a rooftop Belgian beer-pairing dinner on Tuesday starting at 6:30pm.

Join them for five courses by Chef Waylon Rivers paired with some of your favorite Belgian brews like Sage Wit, Honey Badger Saison, Mercury’s Wings BPA, Noir Belg and their seasonal Punk Monk Imperial Belgian Dubbel.

Tickets are $75 and are very limited. To reserve your seat at the table, call the restaurant at (904) 380-3091.


Both the Riverside and Jax Beach Bold Bean locations will be tapping a very special collaboration brew on Tuesday. Intuition worked with the Bold Bean team to create the Blonde Coffee Stout, a unique special release brew with oats, cocoa nibs and Brazilian coffee. The beer will only be available at Bold Bean and in very limited quantities, so when it’s gone, it’s gone!


On Wednesday, Intuition is hosting a special beer and cheese pairing with Cypress Grove Chevre, an award-winning artisan goat cheese maker, in the brewery bar. Debbie from Cypress Grove and Riley from Intuition will be on hand to guide the pairing of 5 cheeses and 5 beers, including a unique One-Off! Special glassware will be provided by Cypress Grove, along with other goodies. Tickets are $20 and are extremely limited. Get yours now at this link:


Intuition will be heading out to Jax Beach to spend Wednesday evening with their friends at Engine 15 Brewing Company for an Intuition Pint Night starting at 7pm. They’ll have seven of Intuition’s brews on tap that night: Barrel-Aged Amsterdam Falafel, Noir Belge, Double Elimination, Truck Stop Stout and 3 of our core beers.


Join the Intuition crew at World of Beer Southside on Thursday evening for the BIGGEST Intuition tap takeover EVER! They’ll be pouring at least 20 of Intuition’s creations starting at 6pm and there will be fun swag giveaways.


Intuition is partnering with Jaxsons Night Market to celebrate beer, food and community on Thursday evening! Contributors to their cookbook, Cooking with Intuition, will be selling a number of dishes prepared with Intuition brews at the Market and Cari will be selling signed copies of the cookbook.

Also… cans of King Street Stout will be available at the Intuition Biergarten for the first time outside of Intuition’s tap room !


Intuition is celebrating their dual anniversary with Moxie Kitchen + Cocktails with Brunch for Dinner on Friday night starting at 10pm! This late-night bash will feature an incredible lineup of beers all paired with Chef Tom Gray’s craveable brunch-inspired small plates. Featured beers include Duuuvaaal, Shotgun Shack and several brunch-themed beers brewed just for the occasion.

The Jax Brew Bus will be making a special roundtrip from Riverside.

Tickets can be purchased at


Intuition Ale Works anniversary will be a beer-lover’s dream. All of their anniversary brews will be on tap along with a long list of special release and barrel-aged treats!

Intuition has pulled a special event permit so they’ll be closing down the street in front of the brewery to blow out the festivities. There will be food trucks out in the street featuring fare by Funkadelic and Driftwood BBQ. The folks at Fretto Prints will be there all day with their on-site t-shirt printing contraption selling unique, one-of-a-kind souvenir tees.

Intuition will also be hosting a raffle to raise money for the Florida craft beer political committee. Just $10 per ticket gives you the chance to win a Yeti cooler bag customized by Burro Bags or an UNDERDARK package that includes bottles of all three vintages and lots of swag!


Join Intuition as they shake off an epic week with a Hangover Brunch at Mellow Mushroom Avondale on Sunday morning! They’ll have 10 of Intuition’s brews on tap to pair with their already awesome brunch menu, including some breakfast one-offs and the return of Contraption, a special release double IPA.

Personally, I wish to extend my heartfelt appreciation to everyone at Intuition Ale Works for all you have done for the Jacksonville craft beer community. I also thank you for what y’all have done for me and companion in our endeavors – and for making Intuition Ale Works always an enjoyable stop on Jax Brew Bitch Prowls.
