Boynton Beach's Due South Brewing Company can pat itself on the back with the deal struck to distribute its beers into the thirsty and tourist heavy region known as Central Florida.
That means places like Orlando, Sanford, Oviedo, Altamonte Springs, Apopka, and Winter Garden will have the opportunity to pour beers from Boynton Beach. It also means that vacationers might find Category 3 IPA or Caramel Cream Ale around theme parks like Universal and Walt Disney World.
"BIG NEWS!" declared the posting on social media. "Due South Brewing Co. and Brown Distributing have joined forces again to bring Due South beers to Orlando! Brown will be distributing Due South throughout Orange and Seminole counties. Cheers to Central Florida!"
The addition of these two counties for distribution makes Due South available in 11 Florida counties, including: Palm Beach, Broward, Dade, Monroe, Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River, Brevard, and Volusia counties.
According to Drink Like A Local, central Floridians can expect immediate draft availability of year round beers like Category 3 IPA and Caramel Cream Ale, with cans of the same following when Due South finishes its canning line in April of this year. There is also the potential for 'better beer bars' to receive special kegs of Cat 5 IPA, Imperial Caramel Cream Ale, or Hopoluxo IPA.
It's a good time to be in the brewing industry, and a craft beer fan, in Florida.
