The DeBary-based craft brewery Central 28 Beer Company has announced opening and distribution plans. The taproom will have a soft opening on July 30, followed by a grand opening celebration sometime in August.
Central 28 Beer Company has partnered with Cavalier Distributing as their distributor for Lakeland, Orlando, and the Space Coast.
“It has been a long time in planning, and we’re really excited to bring our beer to market. We couldn’t have found a better partner to do that than Cavalier. Our approach to brewing is very focused on connecting our beer to our customers on a grassroots level. They have a similar approach to distribution,” says Central 28 Brewmaster Geoff DeBisschop.
Cavalier will distribute draft-only versions of Central 28’s year-round beers including: Dancing Pierre, a Belgian-Style Pale Ale, Trekker Bier, a Farmhouse Ale, Up River, an American Pale Ale, The Flying Rivera Sisters, a Golden Ale, Ms. Mary Brown, a Brown Ale, and Little Wheel, an American IPA.
About Central 28 Beer Company
The dream for Central 28 Beer Company began as a conversation at a family holiday gathering. Kathy and Geoff DeBisschop and Kathy’s brother Dan St. Pierre decided to combine their years of experience in creating great craft beer and their unbridled enthusiasm for drinking it, founding the Central 28 Beer Company. Central 28 is a family-run and community-focused craft brewery producing hop-forward American style ales and flavorful Belgian style ales. Using the finest raw materials gathered from around the globe, Central 28 seeks to honor their Belgian roots and the inspiring American Craft Beer industry with every batch they brew.
