Las Vegas, NV – 21st Amendment Brewery and Wirtz Beverage announced today a partnership that will bring the California-based craft brewery’s portfolio of beers to southern Nevada for the first time.

“We’re so excited that Nevada is one of the first Western states to distribute 21st Amendment beers from the new San Leandro brewery,” said Michael Shetler, Craft Brand Specialist for Wirtz Beverage Nevada. “This is a great new chapter in the evolution of 21st Amendment and Wirtz Beverage is excited to help introduce new beers like El Sully Mexican Lager and Toaster Pastry – great innovations to complement their core lineup.”

Wirtz Beverage Nevada will distribute selections from 21st Amendment’s brand new San Leandro brewery, including:

  • El Sully Mexican Lager
  • Down to Earth Session IPA
  • Brew Free! or Die IPA
  • Back in Black Black IPA
  • Fireside Chat Winter Ale
  • Good Things Belgian Triple Limited Release Collaboration with Cleophus Quealy and Drake’s
