The brewery plans to start with a small menu with around eight pizzas, three or four apps, and a dessert.
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Known for its sour beers and hazy IPAs, the Atlantic Beach Brewery is soon to be known for more.
Last year First Coast Brews announced that Reve plans to take over and expand the Domino’s pizza room next door. Then COVID hit and plans were delayed.
“It definitely didn’t speed things up, but I don’t think we can really blame it for taking longer than planned,” said owner Eric Luman.
You know what they’re saying, being cheesy isn’t easy. But now, Luman said, the brewery is ready to move forward. He hopes to be able to open the kitchen in mid to late June and is now finalizing the licensing.
According to Luman, Reve will cook Neapolitan-style pizzas in a wood-fired oven.
“I worked in a wood-fire pizza kitchen in college and I always loved that style, and my wife grew up in Europe, so she loves this style of pizza too,” he says.
You plan to start with a small menu with around eight pizzas, three or four apps and salads, and a dessert. However, he still packs the final details on the menu.
According to Luman, the dough is made in-house and fermented for three days. The process is known as cold fermentation and it slows down the activity of the yeast to create extra flavor in the dough and make it more digestible.
Great beer and great pizza on Mayport Road We can hardly wait.
