Notes about The Florida Breweries Report

  • 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.
