Atlantic Beach Brewing Expands Distribution to Central Florida

ORLANDO, Fla. – Sunshine State Distributing announced a new partnership with Atlantic Beach Brewing Company that will begin distribution of the brewery’s core line of craft beer in Central Florida to six counties: Orange, Osceola, Polk, Brevard, Lake, and Seminole.

Distribution of Atlantic Beach Brewing Company beer is expected to begin at the end of June and will include kegs and cans in restaurants and craft bars and cans in retail locations.

“It’s no surprise how fast Atlantic Beach Brewing Company is growing, and we’re excited to introduce Central Florida to their beers,” said Chris Larue, president of Sunshine State Distributing. “They bring the same passion to their craft that all great Florida breweries do.”

Atlantic Beach Brewing Company was founded in 2016 by twin brothers Chuck and Spencer Horn and Spencer’s wife, Linda. Canning at their North Florida facility began in March 2018.

“We’re an independent, family-owned brewery and we’re all about great, quality beer to please casual drinkers and beer enthusiasts alike. We hit the market aggressively and we’re steadily growing—that’s just how we do business,” Spencer Horn said. “Sunshine State services the truly craft-driven customer on and off premise and that’s exactly what we are looking for in a distribution partner.”

The initial distribution will include Atlantic Beach Brewing Company’s core craft beers which comprises the brewery’s flagship beer, Duality IPA, a “crushable” session IPA called TwoMinutes, and Mayport Red.
