Grassroots is a family owned and operated natural food grocery store in the 5 points area of Jacksonville. The interior is well planned and inviting. The staff is solid and the owners seem interested in making sure you are pleased and find what you are looking for. They have an excellent beer selection including 750ml bottles, six packs and many singles. They make excellent recommendations and for a natural food grocery, I can't say there is another with the selection that is offered. I frequent this location and therefore am familiar with there prices and can say that they are rarely if ever beaten and I have purchased beer elsewhere only to find their prices $2-3 less. I am always sure to look at Grassroots before I buy elsewhere.

I randomly stopped into this health food store as I was passing through Jax. I am very glad I did. I came into the store and started looking around for their beer selection. One of the employees saw my wandering gaze and came over to see if I needed help with anything. I told him I was looking for craft beer. He promptly took me to that aisle and then stayed to answer questions. I probably asked him about 30 different beers. He told me his impression of each beer that he had tasted (most) and even went so far as to read me his ratebeer review of one of the beers. This guys (Danny) scope and depth of beer knowledge was extremely impressive. Once he figured out what I was interested in, he pointed out several selections and gave a brief description of each. I have since had the chance to drink several of the beers and his mini review was spot on for each beer. You could tell he was very passionate about craft beer. If you are in Jax and want craft beer, you MUST go to this store. Hopefully Danny will be there and available to help you. I will absolutely go to this store for my craft beer purchases everytime I am even close to Jax.

Great place with a good selection of mix and match beers. Grassroots carries a much better variety than most places in Jacksonville. They have a good selection of many imports and other beers that can be difficult to find. The staff has always been very friendly and knowledgeable of their products. They have a passion for their beer and are more than willing to recommend some good brews. Prices were quite reasonable and similar to others who carried the same beers. Definitely worth stopping in if your in Jax.

Great atmosphere.. Family owned and operated.. Everyone there is helpful and once they have seen you in there a few times, they are very personable. Not as big of beer selection as some other stores, but The quality of the selection outweighs quantities.. end over end. I have only bought food a few times but everything is reasonably priced for organics and such.. Premium products often require premium prices for quality, freshness and availibility. The smoothies are awesome.. Check out the peanut butter and jelly smoothie and grab some dinner and some excellent brews.

This place had a bit of a hippy vibe to it. It is a whole foods store focusing on organic groceries. There is one long aisle filled with assorted craft and domestic brews and the back wall at the end of the aisle is full too. Lots of bombers and a selection of mix your own six. Lots of Rouge, Terrapin, Cigar City, Hoppin Frog, and Stone selections. I picked up Hoppin Frog's Boris the Crusher and Doris the Destroyer. I also picked up a Terrapin Side Project. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The guy that helped me was very knowledgable and frank. He could get just about anything you wanted if they didn't have it as long as the brewery shipped it out that way.

Atmosphere: This is a really nice store that has a hippie vibe to it. My girlfriend is a bit of a hippie so i was able to take my good old time lookn at beer! Big plus!
Quality: Surprised by alot awesome craft beer that were on th shelf. But this is going to into selection category.
Service: Staff is accomidating and friendly. helpful as well.
Selection: fantastic amount of local beers from florida, georgia and all around the south region. Nice belgians beers, I am not into the belgians that much but better than average I would say for belgians. Craft beer fro all over the USA. Nice selections of a mix a 6 pack.
Value: Decent prices about the same as everywhere else i have looked. no crazy bargains, but I will say standard prices.
Overall: Best craft beer store in jacksonville. I will stop again before leaving town.

I really like the laid back atmosphere and awesome selection of this store. It's a mixed bag of imports and dom craft.Really if you can't find what your looking for at the big store, give them a call.I recommend a stop at Grassroots whenever you are in the Riverside area.Its open til 8 make sure you get there before.If your confused about parking, it's in the rear. Grab a shot of wheatgrass on the way out.
Update1/13/12. : This is hands down my favorite bottle shop in Jacksonville.The selection keeps growing.

Health food stores are generally my old ladies bag, but this spot is aye okay. Firstly being a natural market, you think hippies passing around petitions right? Not the case here. The guy who runs the beer section is as friendly as can be, and there is no shortage of helpful hands willing to make sure you are hop happy. Good place to grab a mix of six for a party or gift of good beer for those who don't know beer. Good mix of rarities time to time, certain cigar city hiding in plain sight will catch you by surprise. Damn worth the stop in. Beats feeding the corporate beasts that burden the rest of jax.

On Ding's advice, I visited Grassroots for the very first time today and met one of the owners of the store, James. It was morning and the staff was busy adding fresh inventory to the shelves and in the produce section with a delivery from Albertson's fresh organics.
Grassroots has a really decent selection of mix-and-match beers in mixed sizes as well as a smaller selection of six packs, cases and cold beverages. I want to say they have about six or seven 8'x8' displays of single bottle mix-and match alone. Pretty impressive for an organic health food store.
The dry bottles selection is pretty great for our area. They're definitely worth the visit. While browsing through and picking and choosing some new-to-me beers, James took the time to stop stocking shelves, introduce himself, and help me find a few rarities i'd been searching the area for. Their website announces new arrivals for the week with updates on Fridays (just in time for the weekend, woohoo).
While discussing the availability of Sierra Navada Bigfoot, James explained to me that they purchase their stock from five local distributors and are usually able to procure special requests when they're available. James also confessed to me that they're usually after the more unique and novel beers and will usually pick up a new beer just to try it (if they like it, others will follow).
Grassroots is also unafraid to find a BA review for you if you're on the fence about trying out a particular beer.
All in all, a very good store and i'm quite sure i'll be a regular visitor.

What a great little beer gem hidden away in Riverside, which is quickly becoming the heart for good beer in Jacksonville. I have been hearing about this place for several months, and decided I must check it out during my search for Cigar City beers. As soon as you walk in the door, turn left and BAM - there are the beers. Two aisles including end caps dedicated to craft and micro beers. You won't find any Bud Light in this place!!! I did find the CCB beer I was looking for, plus a great selection of just about everything the distributors are bringing to Jax. The fact that it's in Riverside only helps it's cause. Check this place out on your way to Kickbacks or Bold City. You don't be disappointed.
