There were no new brewpubs who joined the rank of active Florida brewpubs in March 2014. McGuire’s Irish Pub and Brewzzi again top the monthly sales rankings, but newcomer Tomoka Brewery and Fermentation Lounge had big months. Sailfish Brewing Company made the jump to the production brewery roles. It’s all on The Brewpub Report.
Notes about The Florida Brewpubs Report
We’ve made some improvements to our second installment of The Brewpub Report, including a new Ranking Change to show how each brewery’s monthly ranking compares to the prior month.
We’ve made some improvements with our second installment of The Breweries Report, including a new column, “Ranking Change” to show how each brewery’s monthly ranking compares to the prior month.
The Florida Breweries Report only reflects information about each breweries reported taproom sales, as reflected on the ABT’s monthly wholesale reports for March 2014, the most recent information available. The full production and sales (taproom and distribution) numbers for Florida breweries are not publicly available.
Because The Florida Breweries Report is limited to taproom sales, we’ve decided to include Anheuser Busch’s reported sales at its Jacksonville plant. Think of it as a control group.
The Florida Breweries Report reflects the active CMB-licensed breweries in Florida. The Florida Brewpubs Report separately tracks Florida CMBP-licensed brewpubs.
The number of breweries in Florida is growing rapidly, and existing Florida breweries are expanding steadily. To help Florida breweries and their supports stay informed about this expanding industry, we are beginning a new monthly feature: The Florida Breweries Report.
