Intuition Ale Works Restaurant Review

Look, I’m going to be honest with you and this will be hard to believe but after serving 14yrs in the Navy, I’m not your typical beer drinker. I’m more of a Scotch on the rocks kind of guy. Yeah, one of “those” guys haha. And as weird as this will sound but I am just now finally starting to like beer more and more. Maybe it’s my old age? Who knows, but I’m starting to find a taste for beer. Needless to say, everyone keeps raving about Intuition Ale so I figured…Why not??

720 King Street
Jacksonville, FL. 32204
(904)683-7720

Location: It’s on King street, not far from Kickbacks and Pele’s Wood Fire (Review Here)

Food: To be honest, I don’t think they serve food. I never saw a menu or anyone even eating anything besides the bartender who was eating chips and salsa. So this review is pretty much on the beer. Like I said, I’m not your average beer drinker. So I went with a “flight” of beer which is where they give you this wooden paddle looking thing with 6 smaller beers on it. It is only $6! It’s like if you ordered the appetizer sampler at a restaurant. You get to pick any of the 6 beers you want and they will write them down in the order they put them on your paddle and then off you go to your table and enjoy. For me, this is perfect because I didn’t want to get stuck nursing a pint of beer that I didn’t like. The six I tried were: Injunction, I-10 IPA, Jon Boat, Dubbel Helix (yes, that’s how they spell it), Riverside Red and the Contraption. My favorites were the I-10 IPA, the Jon Boat and the Riverside Red. Not that the other three weren’t good, but if I had to pick three, it would be the ones I just listed. A couple things to note about the Intuition Ale Tap Room is that there isn’t a lot of light (kind of seems like it’s in a basement, not a lot of windows) but don’t take that the wrong way, I thought it was very comfortable. And of course, they have free wifi so that’s always nice. Drunk tweets…am I right?!?! Who doesn’t like those?

I love food and I love to make people laugh. This blog started out as a place for me to just vent about some crappy food and turned out that I stumbled into some good food along the way. I'm a father of 2, husband, and master of nothing.

  1. Yes, you are correct in that Intuition doesn’t doesn’t serve food. They frequently have Food Trucks outside which people can order food from like Monroe’s BBQ etc. MMmmmmmmmmMMmm, right? Pele’s used to setup there with their brick oven pizzeria before they got a stand alone location.

    People can also bring food into their tap room. I’ve seen a variety from gourmet pizza to McDonalds come through those doors. If you bring food in, you’ll make lots of new friends quickly.

    You should also go back and check out their main brewery area. I feel as though you missed half of Intuition on your visit.

    Plus, if you didn’t actually meet Carivicarious (Cari S├ínchez-Potter – http://www.cari-vicarious.com) on your visit, I’m not sure it truly counts as a visit.. right? :)

    Also, put Slow Down at Intuition Ale on your calendar asap. Went last year and it was a blast. http://slowfoodfirstcoastslowdown.eventbrite.com/

    • I will check out the Slow Down, thanks for the link. I saw it on the board at Intuition but I forgot to ask about it.

      I did go to the main brewery area but there weren’t any people back there so I didn’t hang out really. It’s good to know that they have food trucks show up, is there a schedule that they follow?

      • Actually…. due to city zoning restrictions, Intuition isn’t currently permitted to have food trucks on-site for the time being. THAT’S why you can’t find a schedule anywhere. #sadhungrypanda

        Regardless, guests can bring in food or have it delivered. I’m pretty sure Five Star Pizza if very familiar w/ Intuition.

        Come to think of it, I’m not sure why having something delivered is ok, but a Food Truck is not… but.. let’s not get into politics in your comments, right??
