The Florida Breweries Report – August 2021

Florida breweries’ taxpaid sales in August 2021 fell below 10,000 in August 2021 for the first time since February 2021.

Monthly Highlights

The Data: The Florida Breweries Report reflects data published by the Florida ABT, which is available online here. The ABT monthly publishes the taxpaid sales for each brewery and distributor. Unfortunately, the ABT does not publish breweries’ sales to distributors. This means that the Florida Breweries Report reflects only breweries’ taxpaid sales, which are generally made in its taproom. Each April and October, breweries with lapsed licenses and no taxpaid sales within the past 12 months are purged from the Florida Breweries Report.

The New Breweries: Alga Beer Co. (Pensacola), Turn 2 Brewing Company (Sebring), Deadwords Brewing (Orlando).

From Brewpub to Production Brewery: No brewpubs upgraded to a production brewery this month. Breweries with a CMB license can fill growlers, sell bottled or canned products for consumption off premises, and sell to licensed distributors. Where a brewery upgrades its license, the tables below denote the CMBP license with * and the CMB license with ^.

Total Number of Breweries: In August 2021, the total number of licensed breweries stood at 418. Of those, 387 breweries reported taxpaid sales for the month.

Monthly Performance: Month-to-month taxpaid sales fell by 2.10% in August 2021. Total taxpaid sales during the rolling last-twelve-months (LTM) were up 2.02%. Compared to August 2020, LTM taxpaid sales were up by 15.36% in August 2021.

Average Monthly Production: For reporting breweries, the average taxpaid sales per brewery in August 2021 was 25.68 barrels, a monthly decrease of 0.69 barrels per brewery.

Distribution: In August 2021, Florida breweries’ taxpaid sales accounted for 0.86% of all beer sales in Florida (8.6 out of 1,000 beers sold).
