New Belgium Brewing (Fort Collins, CO) will start distributing to the state of Florida on July 29th, 2013. Fat Tire, Ranger, and 1554 will arrive first in 22oz bottles. 60 days later (September) look for 12oz bottles and draft, along with members of the Lips of Faith collection.
“Florida will be our 32nd state of distribution and it’s probably the one we’ve heard from most often about, ‘when are you all going get here?’” said New Belgium Florida Sales Director, Jeff Sipes. “A lot of us have friends and family in state so it’s a bit of a homecoming that way. We’re excited.”
NewBelgium will use Gold Coast Distributing, JJ Taylor, Florida Distributing, Cone Distributing, Goldring Gulf, and Champion Brands, and Daytona Beverage. This is the third state New Belgium has opened this year, after Alaska and Louisiana.
