21st Amendment Brewery Expands Distribution to Arizona

SAN LEANDRO, Calif. — If you think about it, California and Arizona have probably had one of the most successful long distance relationships of all time. Offering what some may call “the best of the West,” the states have kept the love alive swapping travel stories of beaches and skyscrapers with those of Saguaro landscapes and starry night skies. And now, the two states have one more thing to celebrate – mutual access to cold cans of 21st Amendment Brewery’s acclaimed craft beers.

Yes, you heard that right! In partnership with Hensley Beverage Company, 21st Amendment will be coming in hot this February with an Arizona state-wide rollout and public-facing events throughout Phoenix, Scottsdale, Tucson and beyond during the better part of 2018.

“We have long awaited our entrance into the Grand Canyon State,” said Shaun O’Sullivan, Co-Founder and Brewmaster of 21st Amendment Brewery. “We know that the people of Arizona appreciate great craft beer, and we hope to please their palates with the likes of our flagship IPAs, delicious fruit beers and seasonal offerings.”

“As avid baseball fans, we’re excited that our beers will be in-market just in time for Spring Training,” added Nico Freccia ,Co-Founder of 21st Amendment. “If you’ve had a cold slice of watermelon on the rim of your beer while watching a baseball game, you know exactly what I’m talking about.”

To kick-off the Arizona launch, 21st Amendment Brewery will be treating locals to a refreshing line-up of its finest crafts, including Brew Free! or Die IPA, El Sully Mexican-style lager, Blood Orange Brew Free! or Die IPA, and perhaps most exciting of all, an early seasonal release of Hell or High Watermelon wheat. All 21A beers will be available on draft, in six packs and select 15 pack assortments, including the brewery’s new Variety 15 pack.

“This market expansion has been a longtime coming,” said Dave Wilson, Co-Owner and President of 21st Amendment. “Thanks in large part to our new sales partnership with Brooklyn Brewery and Funkwerks, we are very eager to hit the ground running with established team members in the Arizona market and a promising new relationship with Hensley.”

About 21st Amendment

In 2000, Nico Freccia and Shaun O’Sullivan opened the doors to the 21st Amendment brewpub in San Francisco’s historic South Park neighborhood with Freccia managing the restaurant and O’Sullivan spearheading the brewing process. In addition to quickly becoming one of the city’s favorite pubs, 21st Amendment began expanding beyond the Bay Area by helping to pioneer the movement to canned craft beer. In 2015, they opened a Brewery & Tap Room inSan Leandro where most of their beers are made and canned. Known for artistic packaging, witty names and delicious brews, 21st Amendment offers year-round selections, seasonal offerings and its Insurrection Series of small-batch, limited releases. Sold in 26 states (including Arizona!), 21st Amendment is among the top 50 craft beer breweries in America.
