Tampa-based Brew Bus Brewing has teamed up with new distributors to circulate its beer along Florida's Gulf and Treasure coasts. Recently announced partnerships with Pepin Distributing, Great Bay Distributors, Gold Coast Eagle Distributing, Peace River Distributing, Suncoast Beverage Sales, Coastal Beverage Co. and Southern Eagle Distributing connect Brew Bus and sibling company Florida Avenue Brewing Co. under one wholesaler network.

According to a statement from Brew Bus founder and CEO Anthony Derby, the Seminole Heights brewery is excited to build upon Florida Avenue Brewing's eight-year relationship with the Anheuser-Busch umbrella of wholesalers. Availability of the Brew Bus portfolio will remain uninterrupted during this transition.

"Our new partners realize the passion and investment we have made in the brand and we look forward to a very successful relationship," Derby said.

Brew Bus has increased shipments by 67 percent, and depletions have expanded to 66 percent year over year. The brewery attributes that growth to the success of its flagship blueberry wheat ale: You're My Boy, Blue!
