Beer Industry of Florida, Inc. provides leadership which enhances the industry of the independent malt beverage distributor; advocates before government and the public on behalf of its members; encourages the responsible consumption of beer; and provides programs and services that will enhance members' efficiency and effectiveness.
While BIF primarily represents the beer distributors of Florida, we support each of the 3-tiers - brewers, distributors and retailers. We have joined together with these partners to promote issues such as responsible consumption and the preservation of the three-tier system before Florida's elected and appointed officials. In this spirit, many of the brewers and retailers with interest in the Florida market choose to become Associate Members of BIF, making them eligible to attend BIF's annual conventions and legislative meetings.
Florida Franchise Law
Florida's Franchise Law protects distributors and franchise owners who make large investments in facilities, staff and equipment in order to provide outstanding services to suppliers and consumers. The Beer Industry of Florida believes that preservation of Florida's Franchise Law is critical to the continued functioning of the Three-Tier System. F.S. 563.022 states that
The primary function of the Law is to prevent arbitrary and unfair acts and practices which are harmful to the Three-Tier System.
