1876 was a good year

In 1876 — the same year that Budweiser was introduced — a Bavarian immigrant named Lewis Bear established a grocery and chandlery shop in Pensacola, Florida. Our original location was located on South Palafox Street where the Saenger Theatre now sits. Over the years, the company evolved from a grocery wholesaler to the region’s most respected beer and beverage distribution company.

Today, The Lewis Bear Company has two warehouse facilities, employs a highly skilled team of 225 professionals and handles distribution and merchandising for 2500+ accounts. The Company remains dedicated to serving its customers and the community.
