CLEARWATER, Fla. – Florida-based Big Storm Brewing Company is expanding distribution again – this time to New Jersey and North Carolina. The move follows an expansion to Ohio announced last month.
“With such great support from our local communities in Florida, we’ve had immense growth at Big Storm,” said Big Storm co-owner L.J. Govoni. “We’re excited to share some of Big Storm’s top award-winning beers with consumers in both the Garden and Tar Heel States.”
Big Storm will be distributed in New Jersey by Shore Point Distributing Company, Inc. and in North Carolina by Carolina Eagle Distributing. Both distributors will carry Big Storm’s core beers: Wavemaker Amber Ale, Tropic Pressure Florida Ale, BroMosa Tangerine IPA, Palm Bender Gulf Coast IPA, and Arcus Southern Pale Ale. Their seasonal lineup will be available during designated months and includes Oats In Hose Oatmeal Stout, Key Lime Shandy, Oktoberfest Lager, and Dunder and Blixem Spiced Ale.
“Geographic boundaries come second to working with distributor partners who share our vision of the Big Storm brand, commitment to customer service and a love for the product. We feel both Shore Point and Carolina Eagle check all those boxes,” Govoni said.
New Jersey has seen a 43% growth in its craft beer industry since 2015, according to a 2019 study done by the research company C + R. The state, along with Kentucky which has tied it with 43%, has seen more craft brewery growth than any other state.
