Central Florida is well known for its amusement parks and entertainment.  Epcot, SeaWorld, Amway Center are all places we love to visit and each year they are getting better are resourcing locally made products.  SeaWorld has been well connected with the local craft beer and we see that grow every year with their Seven Seas Festival, Craft Beer Festival, and other holiday events that incorporate local craft breweries.  We have been honored to have an Ivanhoe Park Brewing Co. booth for most of those events and hosted a special craft dinner pairing this year for their Craft Beer Festival.  Epcot added us this year for Flower and Garden with our Hibiscus Guavacation and then kept us going with Food and Wine, selecting 3 of our beers to be in draft for their largest and longest event of the year.  We were excited to keep active with their Festival of the Holidays and are looking forward to the Festival of the Arts early next year.  With our partnership with the Orlando Solar Bears and collaborating on Bear Beer Florida Lager, Amway Center recently went through changes that included our Park Hopp’r Pilsner on draft and Bear Beer available in cans at various concession stands.  Another addition this year was Publix Supermarket, picking up Joyland IPA, Park Hopp’r Pilsner, and Tupac ShaPorter.  We had been doing well in Fresh Market locations throughout Central Florida and hope to continue as we add more grocery stores.  As always, we love our locally owned small restaurants and bars that have carried our product from the beginning and hope to maintain those relationships as well.  We are just happy to see that a lot of these other places are giving local breweries a chance to reach a broader market, so we can keep growing and innovating to help the local economy as everyone else is.
