We’re bringing Short’s to the Sunshine State

Shorts in Florida, it makes sense, right? We thought so too, so we’re keeping our shorts out year round because Short’s Brewing Company beers and Starcut Ciders are heading to the sunshine state! Starting in January 2019, we’re partnering with Cavalier Distributing in the greater Orlando area and J.J. Taylor Distributing Florida, Inc. in the greater Tampa area to bring Short’s brews to Florida. Short’s will distribute their flagship beers, Huma Lupa Licious, Local’s Light, and Soft Parade, along with Pulsar, Octorock, and Mosa from Starcut Ciders beginning in mid-January. Short’s new flagship, Juicy Brut, will also launch in Florida in February, followed by the highly popular seasonal, Soft Parade Shandy, in March.

Get ready Floridians and snowbirds, because we’re flying south for two weeks of Short’s Launch Events fun!

    This is the best thing ever! Will temper my need to make a beer run to Bellaire from Tampa twice a year, yaaaaay!

    We had a home on Grass River for 15 years before we sold and bought a winter place in Punta Gorda. Our son Steve and wife dawn live in Nellaire as well as the Kaiser’s, Bradley and Lauryn, our grand daughter. We hope your Tampa distributor gets down to Charlotte County, ( Port ChRlotte and Punta Gorda). Keep us posted as to retailers in our area. It’s a wide open market down here. Nothing like is going on 8n Michigan.

    When will we see you in S. Florida? Bellaire native looking for a taste of home.

      Hey Aaron! We will be in the Greater Orlando and Tampa area for now but you never know what the future holds!

    So happy to hear the news! Please come to Ft. Myers/Naples area. We’re lucky because we return to Bellaire in May and our mugs will be waiting for us.
