We are always looking for new ways to help brewers make and sell craft beer in Florida. Our latest offering is the Florida Beer Distribution Guide.
This Guide is designed to help brewers get the most out of distribution agreements while complying with Florida law. From the Guide:
With the exception of licensed brewpubs and brewery taprooms, a brewery can only sell its beer in Florida to a distributor pursuant to a written distribution agreement (also called a franchise agreement). Every beer distribution agreement must conform to Florida Statutes Section 563.022, the purpose of which is to ensure that a distributor can act independently from the brewery, particularly with respect to setting prices, so long as the distributor maintains satisfactory sale levels.
Brewers need to be well equipped when they evaluate and negotiate Florida distribution agreements. Equipping brewers with legal and business tools is what we do. Cheers!
