Boulevard Expands Distribution to Florida

Boulevard Brewing has announced plans to expand distribution throughout Florida per an agreement with Brown Distributing, an Anheuser-Busch wholesaler.

Boulevard beers will be available to the market beginning early October, according to a statement issued by the company, growing its total distribution footprint to 28 states and the District of Columbia.

“We’ve been looking at Florida for quite a while,” said Steve Mills, Boulevard’s vice president of sales, in the statement. “We’ve found the ideal partner in Brown Distributing, and look forward to sharing our beers with the rising tide of Florida craft beer enthusiasts.”

The move comes a few weeks after the brewery, which was acquired by Belgian-based Duvel Moortgat last October, announced it would expand distribution throughout New Jersey and Philadelphia with MillerCoors outfits Peerless Beverage Co. and Muller Inc. respectively.

Prior to those two August moves, Boulevard, which produces a range of popular beers including Pop-Up IPA and 80-Acre Hoppy Wheat Beer, hadn’t launched in any new markets since May of last year.

Along with the abovementioned beers, Unfiltered Wheat Beer, Single-Wide IPA, Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale, Double-Wide IPA, as well as additional seasonals and limited releases will be available in Florida.
