Big losses in Florida breweries’ monthly and LTM growth…or there’s something up with these numbers.

Monthly Highlights

  • Four new Florida breweries in September 2017: Bousa Brewing (Miami), Main & Six Brewing Company (Jacksonville), West Palm Beach Brewery & Wine Vault (West Palm Beach), and Half Wall Brewery (New Smyrna Beach).
  • In August 2017, the total number of licensed breweries stood at 258. Of those, 218 breweries reported taxpaid sales in September.
  • Month-to-month taxpaid sales fell by 22.47% in September 2017. Total taxpaid sales during the rolling last-twelve-months (LTM) fell by 0.85%.
  • The average taxpaid sales per brewery in August was 30.83 barrels, a decrease of 22.9% from August 2017.
  • In September 2017, Florida breweries’ taxpaid sales accounted for 0.58% of all beer sales in Florida (5.8 out of 1,000 beers sold).
  • Reported taxpaid sales for Cigar City Brewing were way off in September 2017–only 25.07 barrels, compared to 308.74 barrels in August 2017. This dropped Cigar City Brewing from the top place in monthly taxpaid sales for August to 89th place in September. It doesn’t add up.

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.
