The Florida Breweries Report – July 2021

For the first time since the Florida Breweries Report started in January 2015, there were no new Florida breweries added in July 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: None. Zero. Zilch.

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 July 2021, the total number of licensed breweries stood at 415. Of those, 385 breweries reported taxpaid sales for the month.

Monthly Performance: Month-to-month taxpaid sales fell by 2.33% in July 2021. Total taxpaid sales during the rolling last-twelve-months (LTM) were flat (0.00% change). Compared to July 2020, LTM taxpaid sales were up by 8.03% in July 2021.

Average Monthly Production: For reporting breweries, the average taxpaid sales per brewery in July 2021 was 26.38 barrels, a monthly decrease of 0.49 barrels per brewery.

Distribution: In July 2021, Florida breweries’ taxpaid sales accounted for 0.84% of all beer sales in Florida (8.4 out of 1,000 beers sold).
