San Francisco, CA — Almanac Beer Company is thrilled to announce it is beginning distribution as of mid-June to the great beer state of Colorado, starting with the Colorado Front Range! We will be partnering with the distribution arm of Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project to bring Almanac’s barrel-aged and fresh beers to the craft beer loving folks of Colorado.
Over the last year at SF Beer Week and GABF, our mutual love and respect for wild yeasts and funk brought us together and made us fast friends. We knew Crooked Stave would be the perfect distribution partner for bringing Almanac to the Mile High City, Fort Collins, Colorado Springs, and everything in between!
The first limited shipments will be hitting bottle shops, bars and restaurants mid-June in the Colorado Front Range. Almanac will be sending the latest releases from our barrel-aging program, including Farmer’s Reserve Blackberry—a sour blond ale aged in wine barrels with Swanton Berry Farm Blackberries, and Dogpatch Strawberry—a Flanders Red-inspired sour ale aged in wine barrels with coastal Santa Cruz strawberries. In addition, our latest fresh beers will be making the trip too, with kegs of Almanac IPA, Golden Gate Gose and Ichibier all headed east. We’ll then continue regular shipments of Almanac beer as new barrel-aged projects are released and ready to share.
Colorado has an amazing craft beer culture and brewing community, and we can’t wait to be a part of it.
