This project includes the build out of a commercial microbrewery and brew pub operation with outdoor beer garden space at 228 E. Forsyth Street (a/k/a The Letter Shop) and the adjacent parking lot space at 230 E. Forsyth Street.
Ruby Beach Brewing is a specialty craft brewery that is relocating from its Jacksonville Beach location of the past five years to downtown Jacksonville. Ruby Beach will bring a twenty-four (24) tap rotating lineup of premium, unique microbrews in its tap room. Signature brews from Ruby Beach use 100% juice purees, local, fresh, culinary enhanced ingredients and grain milled in-house. Incorporating trends such as lower ABV and a more health conscience beer are among the operating plans for the current year.
The retail/public space comprises a 1,278 square foot taproom, a 440 square foot outdoor patio/beer garden, and 2,557 square feet upstairs meeting space to be finished and used for weddings, family events, corporate events, art showings, pop-up markets and similar events.
