Florida Launch Tour
We’re coming to the sunshine state! Beginning November 10, 2018, we’re partnering with Cavalier Distributing for distribution in Florida. Ten members of the team will be traveling throughout the state, kicking off our Florida expansion with a week’s worth of events featuring art installations, live music, and tap takeovers. We’re bringing a range of core beers including Life in the Clouds IPA, Stranger than Fiction Porter, Jam Up the Mash Dry Hopped Sour and a selection of rotating small batch brews.
We have partnered with four Miami-based artists to produce limited-edition beer cans as a way to celebrate our official launch. Collective Arts’ beer will be available year-round in retail stores including Whole Foods and Total Wine, and bars and restaurants throughout Miami, Orlando, Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Jacksonville.
“Craft beer drinkers love to experiment with new and innovative beers. We’re committed to providing them with a one-of-a-kind beer experience through the creative collision of our beers, art and music,” says Matt Johnston, co-founder and CEO of Collective Arts Brewing. “With our event at Art Basel 2018 and the progressive art community in Miami, along with the thriving craft beer scene in Florida, we think it’s an exciting spot for us to dive in and integrate our beers.”
Brewmaster Ryan Morrow will be collaborating with Florida-based breweries Tampa Bay Brewing Company, Green Bench, and Civil Society while in town for the launch. After our launch week, keep your eyes peeled for us as we will be collaborating with CAKE Creative Agency to be the craft beer supplier at Art Basel in Miami Beach running December 6 – 9, 2018.
