Stratford, CT — Two Roads Brewing Company of Stratford, CT announced today that the brand will be rolling into the United Kingdom and they are pleased to be teaming up with James Clay as their distributor. The launch will begin the week of July 1st with a series of kick-off events throughout England.
“Our approach to selecting new markets and distributor partnerships is one of careful due diligence to ensure we will be well represented and that our brand vision and strategies will be embraced and executed by our distributor partners,” said Two Roads CEO Brad Hittle. “James Clay was an easy choice as they are uniquely qualified in all respects to help us achieve our goals. It doesn’t hurt either that they like to have a lot of fun in the process, and our team has already formed great relationships with them in a short amount of time”.
Two Roads Brewing Company was founded in 2012 by four friends who dreamed for years of starting a craft brewery. The company they created fosters a “road less traveled” philosophy in the beers they make and how they make them. In that spirit, Phil Markowski, their award-winning Brewmaster and 25 year craft beer veteran, has created an extensive lineup that takes a unique twist on classic beer styles.
James Clay, founder of James Clay also commented, “We are delighted to welcome Two Roads Brewing Co to our portfolio of world classic beers. Even though Two Roads are a relatively new brewery the quality of their beers is borne from a hugely experienced team and we firmly believe Two Roads are destined to become a world classic brewery in the future. James Clay are excited to share a part of this journey with Two Roads as they share their beers in the UK as their first export territory.”
