SAN LEANDRO, Calif. — Residents in Kentucky and Connecticut no longer have to cross surrounding state lines to get their fill of 21st Amendment Brewery brews, thanks to the brewery’s recent distribution expansion into both states.
“There has been a strong demand for our beers in both locations, and we are fortunate to be in a position to finally supply our beer to thirsty fans,” said Dave Wilson, President of 21st Amendment Brewery. “We not only have established relationships with awesome distributor partners in both regions, but we also have a local sales team in both states ready to hit the ground running.”
“We think our IPAs will be a big hit inConnecticut, especially our west-coast style Brew Free! or Die IPA. Additionally, Hell or High Watermelon Wheat and Blood Orange Brew Free! or Die IPA will be a refreshing treat during the hot summer days in Kentucky,” adds Shaun O’Sullivan, Co-Founder and Brewmaster of 21st Amendment Brewery.
Working with Heidelberg Distributing for the Kentucky region, and with Star Distributors and A. Gallo Distributors in Connecticut, 21st Amendment beer is debuting at bars, restaurants, and grocery and liquor stores across both states this week.
“It always brings a sense of excitement when we launch our beers into new markets,” said Nico Freccia, Co-Founder of 21st Amendment Brewery. “We’re extra excited about Kentucky because it was the birthplace of Abraham Lincoln, whom we feature prominently on two of our beer can designs.Being called the 21st Amendment, we got excited about Connecticut, nicknamed the Constitution State, which of course rings true to our brand values. Our hope is that our beers will feel right at home.”
To kick-off the spring season, locals and visitors to both states will be treated to a refreshing line-up of BrewFree! or Die IPA, El Sully Mexican-style lager, Blood Orange Brew Free! or Die IPA, and Hell or High Watermelon wheat. All 21A beers will be available on draft, in six packs and select 15 pack assortments with other 21st Amendment brews.For more information about where to find and purchase 21st Amendment beer throughout Kentucky and/orConnecticut, visit www.21st-Amendment.com/Find-Some.
