Florida Is Our Home
When Hurricane Irma hit Florida, it left communities devastated, without power or water. Florida’s distributors acted.
Together, over 29,000 cases of water were delivered, amounting to more than 710,000 cans. Additionally, distributors worked with their local communities to organize drives for necessities like canned goods, batteries, toiletries, and more.
Florida’s beer industry not only contributes hundreds of millions of dollars to the state’s economy through the taxes collected, but our community-based, independent distributors also contribute heavily and consistently to their local charitable organizations. Local independent distributors know that good corporate stewardship is an essential part of who we are.
In fact, the National Beer Wholesalers Association’s 2015 Economic Impact Report estimates over $12.7 million in direct economic impact in support of local charities, events, and economic development per year on average.
