Publix To Add Space For More Craft Beers

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Craft beers are fun, trendy, flavorful and growing in popularity among the masses. People who love to drink them will travel miles to get their favorite microbrew for flavors ranging from peach to pizza.

In some neighborhoods, finding a good craft beer may be as easy as going to the local Publix supermarket.

The Lakeland based grocer wants to satisfy their customer desires with a larger selection of microbrews. Although the change is not company-wide, new stores and remodeled stores will make more space for microbrews.

According to, Publix spokeswoman, Shannon Patten said this about the addition,

“As we develop new store prototypes, or if we remodel an existing store, we are dedicating a larger section for beer. It’s a very important category for us.”

Some stores already have sections devoted to craft and seasonal beers.

For more information contact your local Publix Super Market.
