According to the Florida Highway Patrol, two semi-trucks collided on the road after one of the drivers changed lanes.
Two other semi-trucks and a pickup truck were able to stop and avoid a collision, but another tractor trailer carrying the beer ran into the pickup truck.
The pickup then hit one of the semis and the truck carrying beer hit another semi that was transporting concrete.
After the crash, the road was covered in concrete and cases of beer, troopers said.
The pickup truck driver suffered minor injuries, and no one else was hurt, according to the Highway Patrol.
