Boulevard Brewing Company Coming To Florida In October

Looking for more craft beer to fill your make-a-six pack? Announced today, Kansas City's Boulevard Brewing Company will be expanding to Florida in just a few short weeks, bringing the number of states the brewery is distributing to up to 28.

Late last week, the brewery penned an agreement with Brown Distributing, which serves the entire state.

"We've been looking at Florida for quite a while," said Steve Mills, Boulevard's Vice President of Sales.

"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."

According to local sales reps, the brewery's products will hit shelves beginning the first week of October, bringing a portfolio of popular midwest beers to our stores. Several year-round beers will be immediately, including Unfiltered Wheat, the brewery's most popular offering, Pop-Up I.P.A., 80-Acre Hoppy Wheat and Single-Wide I.P.A.

Boulevard's smaller batch Smokestack Series will make an appearance with the well rated Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale and Double- Wide I.P.A.

"This is a brand we're going to be able to do so much with," Duvel Moortgat USA's South Florida Sales Rep John Oteri told us. "We're happy to be able to take the midwest local beer and bring it down here."

The brewery will soon aim to reach 600k barrels in annual production by the end of 2015 in a wide program of expansion. They currently produce about 200k barrels a year.

Duvel Moortgart USA, owner of Boulevard, also boasts Brewery Ommegang among its holdings. The brewing group was 8th in sales volume in 2013 according to the Brewer's Association.
