Bold City Brewery to Expand Distribution to Orlando

Jacksonville, FL — Bold City Brewery is extremely excited and proud to announce our expansion to the greater Orlando metropolitan area and our partnership with City Beverages of Orlando. They will begin distributing our products starting April 1st (and we’re not fooling!).

Brands will include Killer Whale Cream Ale, Duke’s Cold Nose Brown Ale and Mad Manatee IPA. All 3 products will be available in 6 pack cans. Killer Whale and Dukes will also be available in draft. Select seasonals will be released into the Orlando market as capacity allows.

In order to continue to meet it’s current market demand and support the Orlando market, Bold City Brewery has increased capacity by 60% through adding an 80 barrel fermentation tank to it’s current brewery configuration.

Susan Miller, Owner / CEO of Bold City Brewery said, “Our expansion into the Orlando market is very exciting for the Bold City Brewery family and we believe there is vast opportunity for growth in Orlando. The folks at City Beverages will take excellent care of our products and work closely with us as we expand distribution into the Florida market.”

The brand release into the Orlando market will begin with:

  • The 6th Annual East Orlando Beer Festival on Saturday, March 29 being held at the Waterford Lakes Town Center from 4 — 8 pm. Look for our Bold City tent! We will have our Dukes Cold Nose Brown Ale and Killer Whale Cream Ale on tap and cans of our Mad Manatee IPA. Tickets are $25 in advance.
  • Our official Bold City Release Party at the Public House (12046 Collegiate Way

Orlando, Florida 32817) on Tuesday, April 1, begins at 7pm.

Look for our beers at your local bar and restaurant, as well as your local grocer and liquor stores. Bold City products are currently available in Jacksonville, St. Augustine, Gainesville, Tampa, St. Petersburg, Sarasota and Orlando beginning April 1st.

Bold City Brewery, the first craft brewery in Jacksonville, was started in 2008 by the mother-son team of Susan and Brian Miller.
