JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – As part of Jacksonville University Athletics' bold new rebrand, JU is inviting alums, supporters and fans alike to join athletics staffers and coaches on the "JU Brew-val Tour" this fall.
Four stops at area breweries are planned for the tour, and fans will have an opportunity to interact with coaches and Dunk'n the Dolphin, win raffle prizes, collect gear with the new branding logos on it and engage with the JU community.
The first stop on the "JU Brew-val Tour" is at Wicked Barley Brewing Company, located at 4100 Baymeadows Road, on Sept. 13. The next stop is Sept. 27 at Aardwolf Brewing Company at 1461 Hendricks Avenue, followed by Intuition Ale Works at 929 E Bay Street on Oct. 11. The final location is at Green Room Brewing, located at 228 3rd Street N, on Nov. 1.
Each tour stop features a happy hour-type setting from 6-8 p.m., with finger foods provided and select coaches present to discuss their team's outlook. The JU Athletics marketing department will be on hand with gear and games promoting the new logo, as well as a raffle opportunity to win basketball season tickets.
One of the highlights is a "JU Brew-val Tour" branded punch card. Fans earn a punch for each stop of the tour that they attend, and if they earn a punch from all four stops, they can cash it in for a new Jacksonville Dolphins logo branded pint glass.
