The Florida Breweries Report – June 2014

Eight new breweries and a completely new table in this Florida Breweries Report.

Notes about this edition of The Florida Breweries Report

  • This edition of The Florida Breweries Report reflects information about each brewery’s reported retail sales, as reflected on the ABT’s monthly wholesale reports for June 2014, the most recent information available. That’s not entirely true. According to an ABT representative, the numbers reported by production breweries (those that have a CMB license) is for all taxable activities.
  • Full production numbers (including retail sales and other production) are not publicly available for production breweries. This means that the activity of production-only breweries–like Grayton Beer Co. and Engine 15 Brewing Co.‘s new production brewery–is not fairly reflected in these reports. We’re working with the ABT to get full production numbers. While the ABT does collect full production numbers, it does not compile the numbers they same way they do the retail sale numbers.
  • This edition of The Florida Breweries Report introduces a new table listing the breweries that reported no taxable activity for the month. This table includes production-only breweries and new breweries that have just recently opened. The breweries on the No Reported Sales Activities are not included in the rankings of the other tables.
  • Eight new breweries are included in this edition of The Florida Breweries Report: Proof Brewing Co.‘s Production Brewery, Oyster City Brewing Co., Dunedin House of Beer, Engine 15 Brewing Co.’s Production Brewery, Escape Brewing Co., First Magnitude Brewing Co., Orchid Island Brewery, and Veterans United Craft Brewery.
  • Based on retail sales, the Florida brewing industry’s annual growth rate increased to 4.11% in June 2014.
