Posted by: Jul 21, 2019

A whopping seven new Florida breweries joined the ranks in May 2019, bringing the count of new breweries this year to 28.

Monthly Highlights

·       Seven new Florida breweries in May 2019: High Springs Brewing Company (High Springs), Clermont Brewing Company (Clermont), Little Giant Brewery (Bradenton), Ocean Republic Brewing Co. (Stuart), Phyre Brewery & Tavern (St. Cloud), Unrefined Brewing (Tarpon Springs), and Azalea City Brewing Co. (Palatka).

 

·       No Florida breweries upgraded from a brewpub license (CMBP) to a production brewery  license (CMB) in May 2019. 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 ^.

 

·       In May 2019, the total number of licensed breweries stood at 351. Of those, 335
breweries reported taxpaid sales in May.

 

·       Month-to-month taxpaid sales fell by 4.01% in May 2019. Total taxpaid sales during the rolling last-twelve-months (LTM) rose by 0.42%. Compared to May 2018, LTM taxpaid sales were up by 15.36% in May 2019.

 

·       For reporting breweries, the average taxpaid sales per brewery in May 2019 was 28.53 barrels, a monthly decrease of 1.64 barrels per brewery.

 

·       In May 2019, Florida breweries’ taxpaid sales accounted for 0.90% of all beer sales in Florida (9.0 out of 1,000 beers sold).

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.
