Jack Brown’s Beer & Burger Joint is the childhood dream of two best friends, Aaron Ludwig and Mike Sabin. While spending their youthful days skateboarding and collecting old beer cans, they often talked about opening their own bar. Flash forward to adulthood, and Aaron had spent 15 years in the business world operating a ski & snowboard shop in Harrisonburg, VA. Mike had spent 20 years in the restaurant world in South Beach Miami. After one crappy day at work in 2008, Aaron called Mike to propose a “what if” scenario and the rest, as the saying goes, is history. Aaron was really into craft beer and Mike had been the chef of four restaurants. With their powers combined, a beer & burger joint was born!
Jack Brown’s is a bar that happens to sell a really fantastic burger, and the menu is purposely simple. This is not a restaurant that tries to please all tastes. We choose to focus on doing one thing and doing it really well. Our burgers are unique and crave-able. We always stock an exciting variety of all styles of craft beer, ranging from local darlings to rare beers from around the world. Our staff is the “special sauce” that brings all of this together. They have all been trained to guide you through the world of craft beer and crazy burgers and to make sure you have a good time.
Aaron and Mike designed the bar that they would want to hang out in, and since they grew up as drinking buddies, it wasn’t too difficult a task. We hope you enjoy your experience at Jack Brown’s, but really we just want you to feel welcome. We claim this joint in the name of good beer, good food, and good people! Cheers!
