Comparison of Florida Breweries Taxpaid Sales to All Sales

In this table, we compare the taxpaid sales by Florida breweries as compared to all beer sales subject to tax in Florida. Most of what a brewery pays taxes on is the sale of its own beer at retail in a taproom or a brewpub. In the following table, we compare this number to all the taxable beer sales in Florida, which includes breweries’ retail sales of their own beer and all sales by Florida distributors.
