In 1876 — the same year that Budweiser was introduced — a Bavarian immigrant named Lewis Bear established a grocery and chandlery shop in Pensacola, Florida. Over the years, the company evolved from a grocery wholesaler to the region’s most respected beer distribution company.
Family-owned and operated for five generations, we are the oldest privately held corporation in Florida and Anheuser-Busch’s oldest continuous distributor.
Lewis Bear handles more than 300 different brands, everything from iconic global labels to beloved local craft beers and everything in between, not to mention high-end sodas and waters.
We operate two warehouse/distribution centers, in Pensacola and Ebro, and our experienced team of more than 210 professionals is focused on building strong relationships with our customers, meeting their needs and working to grow their brands.
