VETERANS UNITED CRAFT BREWERY TAPROOM GRAND OPENING
5-10 p.m. Aug. 22, 1-10 p.m. Aug. 23 at 8999 Western Way, Ste. 104, Southside.
Northeast Florida already has a surfeit of really excellent local brewery taprooms – Bold City, Intuition, Engine 15, Ragtime – and now the Southside gets one of its own. On Friday, Veterans United Craft Brewery – founded last year, as the name suggests, by veterans, and helmed by a brewmaster and former U.S. Navy flight officer – opens the doors of its Baymeadows taproom, with food trucks and live music by Shawn Lightfoot and Arvid Smith.
