Jacksonville is in the middle of a major renaissance fueled by local ‘Makers’ that are helping the city find its true identity. Jax’s new wave of ‘Makers’ are young, passionate and hungry for all things local and real. They are embracing the city’s unique culture and history, and carving a progressive path that fuses our coastal and southern influences to create a unique experience and a new sense of place.
We are continuing to update this list. If you know of a Jacksonville Maker that can be included on this list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Jacksonville’s beer scene is gaining some serious credibility. Thanks to popular craft breweries like Intuition Ale Works, which was the first craft brewery in Florida to can its beer, to newcomers like Jacksonville’s first nanobrewery, Hyperion Brewing Co., beer lovers are starting to take notice. Hyperion was founded and is owned by Jacksonville native Alexandra Keown, one of the few female craft brewery owners in the state. Check out the Jax Ale Trail to explore all the craft breweries.
Mention coffee in Jacksonville, and people don’t think of perennial instant coffee giant, Maxwell House, which opened a processing plant in 1910 that still stands today.
