21st Amendment Expands to Southern California


San Francisco’s 21st Amendment Brewery today announced it has inked a deal with Stone Distributing, the growing wholesale arm of Stone Brewing, to bring its beers to southern California later this month.

Per the terms of the agreement, Stone will distribute 21st Amendment beers – including Hell or High Watermelon and Brew Free! Or Die IPA – throughout San Diego, Los Angeles, Orange County and the Inland Empire, effective May 11.

The expansion was facilitated in part by 21st Amendment’s $21 million investment in a new production facility, located in San Leandro, Calif., per a statement from the company. 21st Amendment will begin producing and shipping beer out of the 95,000 sq. ft. space this June, enabling it to expand deeper into its home state, it said in a statement. At the time of the project’s announcement, the company told Brewbound the facility would have an initial capacity to brew 100,000 barrels in a year.

Prior to the build-out, 21st Amendment had, since 2008, produced most of its beer under contract at Minnesota’s Cold Spring Brewing. The company was originally founded as a brewpub in San Francisco in 2000.
