Most of what a brewery pays taxes on is the sale of its own beer at retail in a taproom or a brewpub.

Notes about this edition of The Florida Breweries Report

  • This edition of The Florida Breweries Report reflects information about each brewery’s reported retail sale, as reflected on the ABT’s monthly wholesale reports for October 2014, the most recent information available. Actually, the numbers reported by production breweries (those that have a CMB license) is for all taxable activities, which includes both retail sales and other taxable transactions.
  • 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 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.
