The Farmville, North Carolina-based Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery announced it will launch its portfolio of craft beers in Florida with distribution partner Cavalier Distributing beginning September 1.

Cavalier will distribute draught and bottle versions of Duck-Rabbit’s award-winning beers, including Milk Stout, 5.7 percent ABV, Amber Ale, 5.5 percent ABV, Brown Ale, 5.6 percent ABV, Hoppy Bunny American Black Ale, 7.3 percent ABV, Baltic Porter, 9 percent, and Wee Heavy Scotch Ale, 8 percent ABV. Several events across the state are planned to celebrate the launch from September 3-5. 

“Florida has been on our radar for quite some time now. We’ve received loads of requests to send our beer to Florida, but we were determined to wait until we were confident that we could treat the state right. After a significant expansion of capacity here at the brewery, we decided the time was right and started visiting the market to talk with wholesalers and retailers. After several trips to different parts of Florida, it became quite clear that Cavalier was going to be a fantastic partner for The Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery. We just couldn’t be more excited to start sending delicious North Carolina dark beer to Florida and to begin a partnership with Cavalier Distributing,” says Duck-Rabbit Founder Paul Philippon.
