Engine 15 Brewing Co. 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 partners Andy and Sean. The three were soon making the business a reality.All that was left was a name. They soon decided they would name the brewery for Luch’s 1962 Ford Fire Engine – after all, they just don’t make them like that anymore. It represents all that Engine 15 Brewing Co. is about. Camaraderie, old school know how, determination and a simple but serious dedication to the cause.As of 2011, Engine 15 Brewing Co. has enjoyed success and was even voted best Pub and Brewpub in Jacksonville by the Folio Weekly readers poll.
