The Daily Record has a pretty good article today on the craft brewing industry locally and nationwide.

Quote
For all of the feel-good moments for Fishweir, 2023 also generated stiff economic headwinds for it and other small, independent breweries in Jacksonville and across the nation.

Inflation, spiking costs of doing business and shifts in consumer spending cut into revenue for independents, resulting in hundreds of American breweries shutting their doors in 2023.

Quote
Preben Olsen, co-owner of San Marco’s Aardwolf Brewing Co., said he believed there was still room for competition in Jacksonville. 

“Market saturation? No,” he said.

“Breweries are still opening up, and a lot of the ones we see opening up have previous experience in the industry. So they are a little bit more wary of the pitfalls and the issues that they may run into.”

Another popping up in Fleming Island.  Barley and Pie. I believe it's one of the Wicked Barley owners.

One effect of a strong economy and real wage growth is that it’s a worker’s market. Workers have more job opportunities to choose from. That’s great in most ways, but it does affect businesses like the food and drink industry that operate on slim margins. Combine that with the risks of opening small businesses in general, and it’s not surprising to see some closures, though it’s great to see our craft beer scene is strong enough that there are more new openings that closures.
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

I don't like this quote from the brewer:

Quote
Baez said he didn’t believe the closures were a matter of overcrowding, but instead were caused by a lack of support for independents among local beer drinkers. He said other communities support more breweries than Jacksonville on a per-capita basis and he pointed to Tampa as an example.

People support what they like and you can't blame them for not supporting you.
