Florida Breweries Report Logo (14.07.04)

It’s Christmas in July! A second Florida Breweries Report this month.

Notes about The Florida Breweries Report

  • The Florida Breweries Report reflects information about each brewery’s reported retail sales, as reflected on the ABT’s monthly wholesale reports for May 2014, the most recent information available. Full production and sales numbers (both retail and wholesale, for production breweries) are not publicly available.
  • We’ve added Industry Total figures in this edition of The Florida Breweries Report.
  • This edition of The Florida Breweries Report features 1 newly licensed brewer: The Corkscrew (Ocala). Not your typical brewery, The Corkscrew allows visitors to make their own wine and beer–just another example of the creative ways to grow Florida beverage industry. Entries for The Corkscrew are bolded in this edition of The Florida Breweries Report.
