A month ago a Senate Bill 554 was filed in the Florida Senate by Senator Dana Young. This bill is moving quickly through the Senate, would greatly help the growth of new breweries in FL, and has an effective date of July 1, 2017.
SB 554 would ultimately allow smaller breweries to act as their own distributor by giving them the power to deliver their beer directly to vendors. This is a huge change to the Three-Tier System that has been in place since Prohibition. Being able to self-distribute for small breweries would cut out the cost of the middle man and help them save much needed money as they are in their growing stages.
Here's a rundown of SB 554:
