Florida Beer Company Connoisseur

Cape Canaveral-based Florida Beer Company has been sold to Trinidad and Tobago's ANSA McAL Group. The group also owns Trinidad-based Carib Brewery, which produced more than 1 million barrels in 2015. 

Florida Beer Company was founded in 1996 and is the state's third largest brewery, with an output of around 35,000 barrels in 2015.

“The milestones attained by Carib Brewery through the abundance of heritage and quality, have earned us the distinction of bringing quality life to the Caribbean diaspora and beyond,” Anthony Sabga III, ANSA McAL Group’s head of beverage said. “We are proud of our local roots and enthusiastic at the prospect of this new addition to our three other breweries located in Trinidad and Tobago, Grenada and St. Kitts and Nevis.”

Terms of the agreement have not yet been made public.
