While Florida often has a…troubled reputation in the rest of the country, we at BevSpot are going to try to be more constructive.
After all, the state plays host to a community of BevSpot power users. It’s a useful thing to have when we’re looking for a watering hole from which to escape the New England winter cold.
We’ve previously looked at the most popular beer and liquor brands in areas across the country, including New York, Chicago, Washington DC, and Texas. Let’s take a look at what Florida BevSpot users are ordering to stock their bars.
The following material aggregates alcoholic beverage order data from dozens of Florida BevSpot users during the first six months of 2017. All figures represent percentages of orders in dollar terms.
Of the top seven beer brands, a single local beer brand manages to rank amongst its mass market competitors: Funky Buddha. The Oakland Park, FL-based brewer is quite popular among Miami BevSpot users, showing its presence as a clear regional favorite.
Interestingly, while Buffalo Trace isn’t among the top whiskey brands nationally, it has a Florida order share triple that of the rest of the country. This makes it the fifth most popular in the region.
The four other tequila brands among Florida BevSpot bars, however, are much less surprising. Interestingly, Don Julio accounts for more of regional tequila orders than Patron does, which isn’t true nationally (Patron is typically the leading tequila brand). The data does suggest that Don Julio is more popular among Mexican-themed bars; this seems to imply that similar tastes might be better represented among Florida bars.
