Jacksonville, Fla., May 30, 2019 – Champion Brands, a Jacksonville beverage wholesaler, has partnered with Fishweir Brewing Company to distribute their craft beers in Baker, Clay, Duval, Nassau, Putnam and St. Johns counties. Owned and operated by Navy veteran Broc Flores and his wife, Stacey, Fishweir Brewing is located in the Murray Hill area of Jacksonville. The couple spent many years in great craft beer cities before moving to Jacksonville and wanted to bring those flavors to the area. Inspired by the beautiful Fishweir Park, they founded the company in 2016 and have created many unique, clean and locally-inspired beers.
“At Fishweir, we wanted to focus on providing more access to styles of beer that are less common to the Jacksonville area,” said Broc. “We hope to provide all our customers with a wide range of farmhouse style and mixed fermentation products that are sometimes referred to as ‘sour’ beer.”
Stacey added, “Currently, we will be distributing three beers outside of the taproom to bars and restaurants in the six counties including our Lazy River Pilsner, Bait & Switch Coffee Blonde and our Pucker Factor Kettle Sour. We hope you enjoy what we are bringing to the market and also encourage you to stop in the brewery to see what new and exciting things we have brewing there.”
Champion Brands is a locally-owned beer, spirits, and non-alcoholic beverage distributor that prides itself on supporting local breweries and promoting the continued growth of locally crafted beverages in the greater Jacksonville area.
“We couldn’t be more excited to partner with the team at Fishweir Brewing,” said Champion Brands General Manager Jacob Benton. “Their passion and attention to detail are evidenced in everything from their beautiful taproom to the flavorful consistency and cleanness of their beers. They’re already a staple of the Murray Hill community, and we have big expectations for their growth into Northeast Florida.”
Fishweir’s brewery and taproom are located at 1183 Edgewood Avenue S. in Jacksonville and open for business Wednesday through Sunday.
