(Middleburg, OH) — Fat Head’s Brewery will withdraw its business from Florida in 2017 in an effort to focus on its core markets of Ohio and Pennsylvania, where it sees significant short and long-term growth opportunity. The brewery has worked with Cavalier Distributing in Florida and will team closely with them to ensure the withdrawal is as minimally disruptive as possible to their retail partners. Cavalier Distributing will continue its relationship as Fat Head’s wholesale representative in Ohio and Indiana.
