WOBURN, MA – Lord Hobo Brewing Company (LHBCo) has announced plans to increase their distribution footprint with expansion into Florida. LHBCo, who recently celebrated their 2nd Anniversary, grew nearly 415% in 2016 and the company is on track to produce 30,000 bbls in 2017; Florida will play a large role in that growth. LHBCo has partnered with Cavalier Distributing for state-wide distribution in the Sunshine State.
“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.”
“I’ve been incredibly impressed with both the people and the liquid at Lord Hobo Brewing, and am excited to bring their style-defining New England beers to the Florida market,” says Cavalier Distributing State Sales Manager Ben Eberly. Three of LHBCo’s beloved offerings, including their flagship Boomsauce IPA, Hobo Life Session IPA, and Consolation Prize Imperial IPA will be available across the state of Florida in both draft and can offerings with rollout events scheduled the first week of August.
LHBCo is enthusiastic to introduce their beers to Florida’s booming beer scene and is committed to becoming a major player in market.
