Wicked Barley Brewing Company (Jacksonville, Florida) has announced that they have partnered with Cavalier Distributing to begin distribution of their craft beer offerings in the area of Jacksonville, Florida.
Since first opening its doors in July 2016, Wicked Barley Brewing Company has quickly established itself within the craft beer community of Jacksonville. Not only has the brewery – which includes a taproom, restaurant, large outdoor beer garden, and a boat – become a favorite destination for local craft beer lovers, but their beers have also recently received quite a bit of recognition at the 2017 Best Florida Beer Championships: Dortmunder Export SB took Gold in the European Dark Lager/Ale category and was named “Best Small Batch Beer in Florida”; Wicked Barley Gose took Gold in the Gose category; Orange Blossom Mead took Silver in the Mead category; and the brewery was named “Best Brewpub in Florida”.
This success and the brewery’s steady growth has now made it possible for Wicked Barley Brewing Company to ease itself into distribution. The brewery has entered into an agreement with Cavalier Distributing to begin distribution of “draught versions of . . . Left Leg Lager, The Eradicator DIPA, and seasonal/limited releases as available, in the Florida counties of Duval, Clay, St. John’s, Nassau, and Baker.” To properly celebrate this new milestone, Wicked Barley and Cavalier Distributing will host the following launch events in the Jacksonville area:
