Lord Hobo Brewing Company (Woburn, Massachusetts) announced today that it has officially signed with Cavalier Distributing so that it may increase its distribution footprint with expansion into Florida.
By brewing “beer for the discerning drinker that appreciates quality and recognizes value”, Lord Hobo Brewing Company (LHBCo) has made quite a name for itself in a very short period of time. Fresh off its 2nd Anniversary, Lord Hobo “grew nearly 415% in 2016 and the company is on track to produce 30,000 bbls in 2017.” Distribution expansion is inevitable with numbers like those, and LHBCo is convinced that Florida is a market that will play a large role in its continued growth.
“Lord Hobo is thrilled to be uniting with a forward-thinking distributor, such as Cavalier,” says Lord Hobo Brewing’s Director of Sales, Andrew Bousquet. “Their customer service and dedication to an all-craft portfolio positions Lord Hobo for success in the Florida market. A second home for many Bostonians, including our beloved Red Sox, Florida felt like the right next market for our beers.”
With the help of Cavalier Distributing, LHBCo will launch in Florida with the statewide distribution of three offerings: Boomsauce IPA, Hobo Life Session IPA, and Consolation Prize Imperial IPA. Available in both cans and on draft, these three offerings will be showcased at the following rollout events that will begin in late-July:
