Yes, JAX does come from Andrew Jackson.  The Jackson Brewing Company no
longer operates; it's been turned into yet another trendy-yuppy
conglomeration of stores.

>re: Jax beer.
 
Had it.  Dynamite stuff.  I tad hoppy but the body is smooth and head firm.
I can compare it to Yuengling lager and possibly Henry Weinhardts Special
Reserve.  Definitly American.
 
If you can get it try Mateen Triple.  It's Belgian, STRONG and tastes
reminiscent of wine.
 
Avoid Icehouse Brew.  Trust me.
