Sarasota-based JDub’s Brewing has announced plans to distribute their brews to Brevard, Orange, Osceola, Polk, Seminole, and Volusia counties beginning in mid-September. A handful of events in the Orlando area will be held to celebrate the launch the week of September 15, including the official launch at the World of Beer, Dr. Phillips location.
JDub’s has partnered with Lakeland-based Cavalier Distributing as their distributor for these six counties.
“We are extremely excited to be teaming up with Cavalier for the Orlando/ Daytona Beach markets. This is a perfect fit. Cavalier is relatively new in Florida, but certainly not new to craft. We’re confident that Cavalier Founder/CEO George Fisher and his team will be just as successful in Florida as they are in Indiana and Ohio, focusing solely on craft brands,” said JDub’s Founder/CEO Jeremy Joerger.
Cavalier will distribute draft only versions of JDub’s year-round beers Up Top! IPA, an American IPA with an ABV 6.75%, and Poolside Ale, a Kolsch with an ABV of 4.5%. JDub’s is the first Florida brewery included in Cavalier’s portfolio.
