About The A1A Ale Works Wedding Venue

1 King Street, St. Augustine, FL 32084

A1A Ale Works is located in the same historic building as the Lightner Museum, once home to the famous Hotel Alcazar. The esteemed hotel was built by St. Augustine visionary Henry Flagler in 1889. It helped transform the city of St. Augustine into the tourist destination it remains today, with draws like the world’s largest indoor swimming pool. The Hotel Alcazar stayed open, hosting wealthy visitors from around the world until 1931. Today, it’s home to the Lightner Museum, as well as a series of shops, cafes, and, of course, A1A Ale Works. 

A1A Ale Works is a relaxed and inviting restaurant specializing in fresh food made with the highest quality ingredients. Along with their creatively prepared food menu, they also specialize in local, hyperlocal, and international craft beers.
