Finally, Victory in FLORIDA!

Victory Brewing Company is pleased to announce our growth into the thirsty Florida market. Consumer interest in our great beers, as expressed via e-mail and on forums, has been high from Florida consumers for years.

  • Fresh Beer, Inc. of West Palm Beach was first to sign on for Victory and will service the counties of Palm Beach, Broward, Miami – Dade and Monroe.
  • Coastal Beverage, Ltd of Naples lays claim to the counties of Collier, and a portion of Lee County. Great Bay Distributors Inc. of Largo has been assigned the counties of Pinellas, Hernando and a portion of Pasco County.
  • Pepin Distributing Company of Tampa, who lead the charge for Victory and brought themselves and 6 other eager and capable wholesalers to Downingtown to seal the deal so to speak, has the counties of East Pasco and Hillsborough to provide exceptional service to.
  • Suncoast Beverage Sales of Fort Myers will be servicing most of Lee and Hendry counties and a portion of Collier county.
  • Gold Coast Eagle Dist. Inc. of Sarasota will be cover the counties of Manatee and Sarasota.
  • Peace River Distributing, Inc. of Punta Gorda has been assigned Charlotte, Desoto and a portion of Glades County.
  • Southern Eagle Distributing of Fort Pierce will be servicing St. Lucie, Martin and portions of Hendry and Palm Beach counties.
  • As far as timing goes, Fresh Beer of West Palm Beach should be receiving their first shipment on October 14th with the others to be shipped before the end of October, we believe.

Unfortunately, no retailer information is available at this time. You may note that this does not represent 100% coverage of the state of Florida. Though we are committed to reaching that goal of 100% coverage, at this time we believe it is right to start with the best opportunities for distribution and to identify other great distribution partners as we grow into the marketplace. Thank you thirsty and vocal Victory fans of Florida for paving the way into new distribution opportunities! Cheers

The Brewmasters,

Bill & Ron

    No distributor for North Florida? That’s kind of lame.

    Please find a distributor for NE Florida/Jacksonville. This is a large metropolitan area and for some reason we are always left out of the distribution picture even though the consensus seems to be that Jacksonville is the second best craft beer market in the state after Tampa/St. Pete.

    Awesome that you are coming to FL… There is one store off of Dale Mabry & I-275 in Tampa that has carried some of your brews for a couple years now. But, its never as good as drinking in D-town!

    I found Golden Monkey in Jupiter, FL & loved it. We were visiting from AZ so when I got back to AZ I tried to find it here but couldn’t. I contacted Victory Brewing to sree where I could get it here and they said they don’t distribute to AZ yet. BUMMER! But, they did tell me that they do distribute to CA so when we were there over the 4th of July I stocked up on several different Victory brews and brought it back to AZ to enjoy and spread the word to see if we can get enough interest to pressure Bev-Mo or Cost Plus to pick it up. Sure hope so.

The Victory Brewing Story

The story of Victory Brewing Company starts on a school bus in 1973 when fifth-graders Ron Barchet and Bill Covaleski stepped aboard, on their way to a new school. The two became fast friends and remained so, even as they grew up and went to college on opposite coasts. Just months out of college, Bill’s appreciation of good beer and access to his father’s home brewing equipment inspired him to explore the hobby. That same year (1985), Bill gave Ron a home brewing kit as a Christmas gift. With that, both Bill and Ron developed their love of the craft…
