With the addition of two new breweries, the Jax Ale Trail, a self-guided tour of Jacksonville’s local craft breweries, is celebrating seven years of success. The Jax Ale Trail will now include Ink Factory Brewing and Tepeyolot Cerveceria, bringing the total number of local breweries to 24.

Visitors can travel around the neighborhoods of Jacksonville using the Jax Ale Trail Brewery Passport as a guide, earning passport stamps along the way. The passport can be submitted to Visit Jacksonville for Ale Trail awards at the end of their vacation or after they’ve visited all of the Ale Trail stops.

“The idea for the Ale Trail came about a little more than seven years ago as the craft beer scene in Jacksonville was on the rise,” said Michael Corrigan, President and CEO of Visit Jacksonville. “It’s been exciting to see tourists and locals embrace the Ale Trail, enjoying and supporting our local makers through an experience that connects the craft beer community and showcases the city in a new way.”

More than 2,300 individuals have stamped their Jax Ale Trail Brewery Passports since it began in December 2014, including craft beer fans from 49 states and nine countries. The Jax Ale Trail has proven to be a popular tourist attraction, with over 1,400 passports being submitted to Visit Jacksonville by visitors. The remaining passports are created thanks to the generosity of Jacksonville people.

Breweries have been stacking up awards as the Ale Trail continues to grow. The Great American Beer Festival awarded Main & Six Brewer and Brewery of the Year, as well as a silver medal for Shuggah Daddi – Chocolate Cake Variant beer and a bronze medal for Hubbard St. Stout, in 2021.

In addition, Fodor’s Travel has named Jacksonville as one of the top craft beer cities in the United States. The Ale Trail is likely to grow in popularity as the city’s craft beer culture develops. This means more chances to win prizes and more wonderful beer to sample at local breweries.
