Florida was named one of the top states for brewery openings at the Craft Brewers Conference in Portland, Oregon. Florida had the fifth most breweries across the U.S. in 2014, with 42 new beer makers setting up shop last year.
Jacksonville has embraced the new Florida breweries, especially for craft beer. There are 8 local Florida breweries in the Jacksonville area, and the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Area will host The 7th Annual Craft & Import Beer Festival on May 15.
If you have or want to start a Florida brewery or Florida business involving alcohol, whether it be brewing, importing, distributing, or selling, there are specific guidelines and requirements that need to be met on a federal, state, and local level.
Failure to properly adhere to these guidelines could result in penalties, including the shutdown of your business operations.
