Florida breweries had a mixed June 2021, with monthly taxpaid sales numbers down but LTM taxpaid sales numbers up.

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: Two new Florida breweries in June 2021: Alafia Brewing Co. (Gibsonton) and ShotPaQ (Sarasota).

From Brewpub to Production Brewery: Two breweries upgraded from a brewpub license (CMBP) to a production brewery license (CMB) this month: String Sports Brewery (Jacksonville) and Blue Springs Brewing (Orange City). Breweries with a CMB license can start 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 June 2021, the total number of licensed breweries stood at 415. Of those, 387breweries reported taxpaid sales for the month.

Monthly Performance: Month-to-month taxpaid sales fell by 6.39% in June 2021. Total taxpaid sales during the rolling last-twelve-months (LTM) increased by 1.93%. Compared to June 2020, LTM taxpaid sales were up by 5.48% in June 2021.

Average Monthly Production: For reporting breweries, the average taxpaid sales per brewery in June 2021 was 26.87 barrels, a monthly decrease of 1.91 barrels per brewery.

Distribution: In June 2021, Florida breweries’ taxpaid sales accounted for 0.79% of all beer sales in Florida (7.9 out of 1,000 beers sold).
