Dear Craft Beer Fans –

I am writing to you in regards to the recent legal challenge filed by groups that oppose the Florida craft beer industry. This legal challenge is being led by the Florida Independent Spirits Association, the Florida Retail Federation and the beer wholesalers’ lobbying organizations. This has been an orchestrated attack on our industry.

As many of you know, we have been fighting for 2+ years to legalize half gallon growlers and we have continually been forced to go on the defensive to protect our interests. We are fighting groups that have the resources and political clout to fight us at every turn.

One of our only weapons has been your support and it is much appreciated.

When I started Intuition over 4 years ago I was focused on making great beer, supporting my community and advocating for our industry.

I have spent far too much time and energy protecting my industry against groups that want to slow our growth at a minimum and at a maximum make us go away.

I have 2 young sons that I would love to be involved with Intuition one day. I love this industry and take pride in creating a legacy for my boys. I could not live with myself if I did not fight to protect this industry. My parents raised me to stand up for what I believe in and I have always taken that to heart.

Our taprooms are vital to the health of our industry. Our opposition is strongly opposed to the way our taprooms currently operate. We currently can sell our beer directly to our supporters via our taproom. Our opposition would like to force us to sell our beer to a distributor and then buy it back, at a markup, before we can sell it to you. I am strongly opposed to any change to the current laws intended to hurt my business and my industry as a whole.

Our opposition knows we do not have the financial resources to fight their legal challenge.

This is where you come in. The Florida Brewers Guild has set up a crowdfunded legal defense fund. We estimate that we will need $100,000 to fight this. A ridiculous sum but it is the reality of the situation.

Here is a link to the site: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/save-florida-s-craft-breweries

Any contribution will help as we are literally fighting for the life of the Florida craft brewing industry.

I want to make this clear that this is a legal issue not a legislative one. Our state reps cannot help us, yet.

This is how you can help.  Contact our opposition:

Florida Retail Federation (850) 222-4082
Beer Industry of Florida (850) 222-8960
Florida Beer Wholesalers Association (850) 224-2337
Florida Independent Spirits Association (850) 421-9100

Ask them why they are fighting against the craft breweries they sell, and ask them to drop their legal challenge.

Thanks in advance for your past and continued support.

Ben Davis
Founder, Intuition Ale Works

UNDERDARK_2_poster

We are releasing the Underdark on SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 7TH FROM 12PM TO 9PM at the brewery. We are closing down the street and turning it into a block party!

Legends tell of the Underdark, a vast dark and dangerous place where few brave souls have journeyed, and from which even fewer have returned.

Journeying through the unforgiving terrain where cruel creatures lurk within the dark caves is not for the faint of heart, and neither is this drink. It is for the brave who journey fearlessly into the dark void to battle true darkness.

Let the mead halls forever echo with the sounds of praise for the warriors who dared travel the Underdark.

Underdark bomber bottles are $15 EACH.

Bottle purchases are CASH ONLY.

BRING YOUR ID – we will not sell Underdark to anyone without an ID.

LIMIT two bottles per person.

LIMITED QUANTITY AVAILABLE – when bottles are gone, they’re gone!

Underdark TEES ($20) and SNIFTERS ($6) will be available for purchase.

Underdark will be ON TAP.

NO GROWLER FILLS OF UNDERDARK.

Funkadelic Food Truck and Chew Chew Food Truck will be parked in our courtyard!
