Local brewer Big Storm has expanded its distribution once again — this time, to markets in New Jersey and North Carolina.

Big Storm — which has tap rooms in Pinellas, Pasco and Lee counties — will use partner breweries to distribute its beers to the new states. The brewer announced last month it would also sell its signature brews in Ohio.

“With such great support from our local communities in Florida, we’ve had immense growth at Big Storm,” Big Storm co-owner L.J. Govoni said in a statement. “We’re excited to share some of Big Storm’s top award-winning beers with consumers in both the Garden and Tar Heel States.”

New Jersey’s Share Point Distributing Company and North Carolina’s Carolina Eagle Distributing will carry Big Storm’s biggest sellers: Wavemaker Amber Ale, Tropic Pressure Florida Ale, BroMosa Tangerine IPA, Palm Bender Gulf Coast IPA, and Arcus Southern Pale Ale.

Seasonal beers such as Oats In Hose Oatmeal Stout and Key Lime Shandy will also be available during select months in the new markets.
