Bold City Downtown Update:

Just tapped @ Bold City Downtown is the Silent Extinction Belgian IPA, which was brewed with our friends from White Oak Conservation. The name comes from the dramatic drop in the Giraffe population, which has mostly flown under the radar. You can read more below:

A dramatic drop in giraffe populations over the past 30 years has seen the world's tallest land mammal classified as vulnerable to extinction.

Numbers have gone from around 155,000 in 1985 to 97,000 in 2015 according to the International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

The iconic animal has declined because of habitat loss, poaching and civil unrest in many parts of Africa.

Some populations are growing, mainly in southern parts of the continent.

Until now, the conservation status of giraffes was considered of "least concern" by the IUCN.

However in their latest global Red List of threatened species, the ungainly animal is now said to be "vulnerable", meaning that over three generations, the population has declined by more that 30%.

According to Dr Julian Fennessy, who co-chairs the IUCN giraffe specialist group, the creatures are undergoing a "silent extinction".

"If you go on a safari, giraffes are everywhere," he told BBC News.

"While there have been great concern about elephants and rhinos, giraffes have gone under the radar but, unfortunately, their numbers have been plummeting, and this is something that we were a little shocked about, that they have declined by so much in so little time.

Tonight is Art Walk in downtown Jacksonville and we’ll have live music from our friend Jesse Montoya starting at 6pm.

On Friday we’ll have live music from our buddy Mark O’ Quinn. His set will kick off at 8pm!
