Issue 14, April 2

Last week our guest speaker was Ken Babby, owner of the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp. He has some great plans lined up to enhance the fan experience. Did you know a family of four can have a great baseball night out for about $20.00? Where else can you go and have a great time for that kind of money? We finally got the story on the name change from the Suns to the Jumbo Shrimp. Jacksonville is the biggest city in the country and still is like a small town. Get it – Jumbo Shrimp!!!  Ken is bringing in all different kinds of shrimp dishes to add to the regular menu of burgers and hot dogs!

Our speaker this week is Ben Davis with Intuition Ale Works.

Intuition Ale Works is a Jacksonville, Florida-based craft brewery established in 2010 by owner and brewer Ben Davis. Specializing in small-batch handcrafted ales, Intuition’s mission is to create quality, flavorful and creative beers in a wide range of styles. In February 2012, Intuition Ale Works became the first craft brewery in the state of Florida to can its beers and currently packages five brands: the flagship People’s Pale Ale, Jon Boat Coast Ale, I-10 IPA, King Street Stout and Easy on the Eyes. These core brands are distributed throughout the state of Florida by Champion Brands (Jacksonville/Northeast Florida) Burkhart Sales & Service (Gainesville and surrounding areas), Tri-Eagle Sales (Tallahassee), J.J. Taylor (Tampa/Central Florida) and Florida Distributing Co. (Orlando). In September 2016, Intuition completed a large expansion project and is enjoying its new, state of the art brewing facility and taproom in downtown Jacksonville.
I hope everyone enjoyed the first “Member Hangout”. Special thanks to Jepp Walter with Marlin Technology for sponsoring the amazing appetizers! Looking forward to the next one!
