LOS ANGELES, CA — Drinks Americas (OTC: DKAM) is a leading U.S. broker for authentic Mexican craft beers whose mission is to identify and invest the majority brand-building resources on  beers and spirits with the greatest growth potential  such as Day of the Dead Craft Beer. With that being said Drinks Americas announces another state-wide distribution deal with North Carolina’s Premier Distributor of Fine Wines & Beers an established premier beer distributor.

“I am amazed at how quickly it went into the market.  We received Day Of The Dead Craft Beer on October 24 th and in five sales days we had over 400 cases in over 100 accounts.  We are very excited to have the brand,” stated Brad Johnston, President of Tryon Distributing.

Tryon Distributing was formed in 1985 by two men with an idea.  The idea was to create a company which would distribute high quality wines to a select group of customers in the Charlotte area.  From that humble beginning, distributing in only three counties, Tryon Distributing Company has grown to be North Carolina’s premier wholesale distributor of fine domestic and import wines and high quality beers from around the nation and the world.  Headquartered in Charlotte, NC, Tryon Distributing now services the entire state from a 92,000 square foot air conditioned distribution center.  Most customers enjoy next day delivery on the company owned fleet of temperature controlled trucks.  Tryon Distributing employs professionals who are committed to delivering premium quality alcoholic beverages to a growing customer base.

“We at Tryon are very excited about representing a craft brewery from Mexico such a Day of the Dead. The package catches the eye and the liquid pleases the taste buds,” commented Chris Angel, Beer Brand Manager, Tryon Distributing.

Tryon’s big expansion occurred throughout 2002 and 2003 when Tryon purchased four other distributors. Today, Tryon Distributing, headquartered in Charlotte, employs approximately 200 employees who work across the entire state of North Carolina.
