DuClaw Brewing Continues to Fill East Coast Footprint with Florida Launch

Baltimore’s DuClaw Brewing Company announced a partnership with Cavalier Distributing of Lakeland, Florida this week. Bars, restaurants, and retailers in the state will begin stocking, and pouring DuClaw’s lineup this week.

DuClaw’s distribution network has been growing steadily since the 2011 release of “Sweet Baby Jesus.” The popular chocolate peanut butter Porter took home honors at the Great American Beer Festival in 2015 with a bronze in the chocolate beer category and has been leading the way for DuClaw into new markets ever since.

The addition of Florida expands DuClaw to 14 states.

“I’ve visited Florida regularly for years, and now I’m finally going to be able to pickup a six pack of our beer in the local store,” said DuClaw founder Dave Benfield. “I’ve seen first hand how strong the Florida craft beer community is, and they’ve been very vocal in letting us know that they want our beer, especially since our 2014 collaboration with Cigar City (‘Impey Barbicane’s Moongun’ session Amber Ale). It’s rewarding to finally be able to share our brews with the craft beer lovers of Florida.”

DuClaw will be offering its core lineup to the Sunshine State, including “Sweet Baby Jesus”, “Funk” blueberry citrus Wheat Ale, “Blood Orange Neon Gypsy” West Coast-style IPA, and “Dirty Little Freak” coconut caramel chocolate Brown Ale.

DuClaw will also offer many seasonal and limited release beers to the market throughout the year.
