Florida’s beverage industry is reaching a breaking point. The state’s traditionally slow summer season is as slow as ever, and bars are still not allowed to serve drinks. Regulators have started touring bars and breweries around the state, trying to determine how and whether they can be allowed to operate again without prompting the spikes in new COVID-19 cases that were tied to the previous reopening attempt. Many struggling bar owners have decided they can’t afford to wait for the state to act. They’re exploring food service options that would allow them to resume service and bring in much-needed revenue before it’s too late.
