Giving Back

As local, family-owned businesses, Florida’s beer wholesalers are passionate patrons of the arts, of healthcare, and of local growth and business development. With more than $12 million dollars in direct economic impact in their local communities annually, distributors across the state have hosted charitable events, donated funds and goods, spent time volunteering, and more in their hometowns.

Honoring Florida's Veterans

Dedication to the community means dedication to our neighbors, especially those in need. Distributors across the state have worked hard for years to support veterans and veteran organizations, including Folds of Honor, which supplies scholarships to the families and loved ones of fallen and/or disabled veterans.

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; from helping children and veterans to working with pet rescue and adoption agencies and organizations like Habitat for Humanity, Florida’s family-owned distributors work year-round to make a positive impact in their communities.

In fact, the National Beer Wholesalers Association’s most recent Economic Impact Report estimates nearly $13 million in direct economic impact in support of local charities, events, and economic development per year on average.

Florida’s beer distributors directly contribute $12.9 million in support of local charities, events and economic development per year.
