Vista, CA – November 15, 2013 – Mother Earth Brew Co. is pleased to announce that it has entered into a distribution agreement with Stone Distributing to carry and distribute Mother Earth’s beers throughout the Stone Distributing Territory. The recent addition of equipment and staff has increased Mother Earth’s production by well over 200% providing for increased distribution in both bottles and draft.
The full portfolio of Mother Earth’s offerings will be available through Stone, centered on its year-round core line-up up of West Coast-style ales including: Cali Creamin’ Vanilla Cream Ale, Kismet IPA, Pin-Up Pale Ale, Hop Diggity Double IPA & the latest addition, Sintax Imperial Stout. Mother Earth will maintain self-distribution and sales of retail bottles in the greater San Diego area; however, all draft will be handled by Stone. In addition, Stone will represent Mother Earth for both bottles and draft in Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernadino, Santa Barbara and Ventura counties.
In speaking about the new agreement, Daniel Love, Co-Founder and General Manager of Mother Earth Brew Co said; “After fully evaluating a very competitive market, there was only one clear distributor that we wanted to partner with. We feel that Stone Distributing, with our support, is the best choice to sell and deliver our brand in the areas that they serve. We couldn’t be more excited.”
“We are proud to play a helpful role in expanding the availability of the high quality beers of our North San Diego County brewing contemporaries at Mother Earth Brew Co.,” said Stone CEO and Co-founder Greg Koch. “Stone firmly believes that partnerships like this, with reputable brewers that we respect and admire, are key in advancing craft beer’s reach and repute.”
Core draft and bottles are shipping now and will be available to order throughout the Stone network effective immediately. Seasonal and specialty beers will also be carried via Stone in the coming weeks.
