The Cummer Museum in Jacksonville is free on the first Saturday of the month so we headed over thinking we had the perfect way to spend a day inside away from the cold. Some how we misread our calendar – December 9th was the second Saturday.
We have been drinking Bold City’s Dukes Brown Ale for several years and wanted to try a few more of their brews. When we said it was our first time their they suggested a flight to taste. And they said those words we love to hear, “It’s free”
After a couple of drinks Ryan, one of the founders, gave us a private tour. We like to think we are special but we got a private tour only because no in else was ready for a tour.
He filled us in on the details of wort and we talked about beers and meads we have made. We sampled 2 day old and 10 day beer.
After that exhausting tour it was time for another beer, and some food. We had spent 3 hours there and the food hut was finally open.
Great beer and people and good bar food. If only we could have camped in their parking lot.
