Team Cone welcomes Athletic Brewing Company to team with distribution in 22 Florida counties

Ocala and Tallahassee-based beer distributor Cone Distributing (Team Cone) has joined forces with Athletic Brewing Company to bring the fast-growing brewer’s beers to Cone’s 22-county distribution footprint.

“Non-alcoholic beer has been growing strong for Team Cone, and when we had the opportunity to work with a World-Class supplier like Athletic Brewing Company, we jumped at the chance,” says Team Cone Vice President of Sales Charlie Ingrilli. “We’re excited to offer these great category-leading products to our customers.”

We are excited to work with one of the best distributors in the state,” says Alex Boerger, Athletic Brewing Company’s Chief Sales Officer. “We have a big opportunity to become a leader in the Non-Alc Beer space and in the local community and Cone is a great partner that can help us achieve this ambition.”

 

Athletic Brewing Company’s beers are now available to order in any of the 22 counties Team Cone serves. Team Cone is launching Athletic Brewing Company with five beers:

Athletic Brewing Company Beer

Athletic Run Wild IPA: Run Wild is the ultimate sessionable IPA for craft beer lovers. Brewed with a blend of five Northwest hops, it has an approachable bitterness to balance the specialty malt body. Always refreshing and only 70 calories.

Athletic Upside Dawn Golden Ale: Classic craft Golden Ale Style. Refreshing, clean, balanced, light-bodied. Aromas subtle with floral and earthy notes. Brewed with premium Vienna Malt along with a combo of English and traditional American hops. Crafted to remove gluten*. (*Upside Dawn is crafted to remove gluten. This product is fermented from grains containing gluten. The gluten content of this product cannot be verified, and this product may contain gluten.)

Athletic Free Wave Hazy IPA: Our Free Wave Hazy IPA is meant for the open road. Whether you’re cruising the Pacific Coast Highway in a convertible or tracing your way up the coast on your bike, our Free Wave doesn’t cut corners. This mouth watering IPA is loaded with Amarillo, Citra, and Mosaic hops. You’ll want to grab a few for the road!

Athletic Lite: Athletic Lite is a light brew, completely reimagined. It’s classically simple but expertly crafted with 25 calories, 5 carbs, and organic grains. We brewed it specifically for the sport of life and all the good times that come with it.

Athletic Seasonal Beer – Wit’s Peak: Wit’s Peak is our homage to a traditional Witbier. Exploding with cues of citrus, coriander, and wheat, it is refreshingly bright yet soft and smooth. It reminds us of fresh tracks on a mountainside just waiting to be skied.

Team Cone’s Tallahassee Spring Rib Sale raises $12,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

Team Cone’s Tallahassee Spring Rib Sale raises $13,500 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

Team Cone’s Tallahassee teammates hosted their annual Spring Rib Sale to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital at their Tallahassee warehouse. Because of the generosity of those who participated, the company raised over $13,500 dollars in charitable donations. 2022’s Rib Sales have been broken company records in Ocala and Tallahassee, with both sales raising the most money in the history of the events. With both events and accompanying donations, Team Cone has raised over $26,500 to donate to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

“We were blown away again by the teamwork and generosity of our community,” said Steve Beckwith, Cone Distributing’s Vice President of Operations. Team Cone’s Area Sales Manager Kenny Kinsey was grateful he had so much help.

“We have to thank all of the people who helped us with this event, Kim Boyer, Don Buie, Teddy Brown, Mike Faulkner, and Steve Verhage. We also thank our company’s president, Mr. Doug Cone, for buying the meat for us to sell. Special thank yous to Wakulla County Sheriff Jared Miller, Dale Evans, Mack’s Meats, Miller’s Tree Service, and Ryan Laird for all the help. Also a special thanks to Callaway Auto and Truck Repair and Tiger Rock of Crawfordville for your very generous donations. Congratulations to Dylan Miller and Hilary Rios for winning our cooler raffle! ”

The Spring Rib Sales in Ocala and Tallahassee are part of Team Cone’s annual company-wide fundraising goal to make an impactful donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Team Cone will host an additional Rib Sale in both Ocala and Tallahassee in the Fall. The global pandemic has presented new challenges to Team Cone’s event-based fundraisers, but the team remains committed to helping St. Jude and other charities fulfill their mission. The beer distributor continues to host safe events and fundraising drives to help raise funds for St. Jude and other charities in accordance with one of their Core Values: “Giving Back with Caring.”

About St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90%, and we won’t stop until no child dies from cancer. St. Jude freely shares discoveries made, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
