Engine 15 Brewing Company was born of the need for great beer! Way back in 1988, Luch Scremin was a Freshman in college and became interested in brewing his own beer. Since the internet did not exist, Luch was forced to order a “beer kit” from an ad in the back of an issue of Popular Mechanics. Suffice it to say that what resulted was indeed beer but was far from great. Fast forward twenty years and the love of beer and the desire to brew it had matured over years of home brewing and an insatiable appetite for delicious brew. Luch traveled the world with his job in the airline business and was treated to many delicious beer styles and beer culture. In 2008 while planning to open a beer bar and brewpub, Luch met his future business partner, Sean Bielman. They were soon making the business a reality.
The original Engine 15 Brewing Company location sits in the heart of Jacksonville Beach. We craft a selection of ever rotating original beers on our 5 barrel brewhouse on site as well as offer our core beers brewed at our production brewery downtown. Our brewpub offers our gusts the chance to experience the many beers Engine 15 has to offer while enjoying a bite to eat from our pub menu. We boast 50 tap lines with many of them pouring Engine 15 creations along with a constantly changing selection of guest beers from around the world.
