ATLANTA — Hapeville-based craft lager trailblazer Arches Brewing today announces distribution expansion with several grocery chains across Georgia as a part of its recent production growth. The brewery’s popular Unseasonal Lager, Southern Bel’ and Queen’s Weiss canned brews will now be available at the majority of Kroger stores in the state starting in early March, in addition to an increased footprint with Whole Foods and Target outposts across Georgia.
“We’re thrilled to increase the availability of our beer and share our story more broadly across the state of Georgia,” said Arches co-founder Ryan Fogelgren. “Looking toward our second anniversary in April, it’s been a dream come true to see the demand for our beers continue to grow over the last year. None of us expected to grow this quickly and we’re so thankful for the support from the Hapeville and Atlanta communities and beyond.”
Arches is currently available in grocery stores across metro Atlanta, Athens, Peachtree City and Marietta – and as a part of this expansion will now reach even more surrounding cities. The brewery’s impressive distribution growth has been fast to match demand for its beers – it was only September 2017 that Arches cans first appeared in Atlanta-area package stores, and limited distribution in grocery stores started in December 2017 and January 2018. On the heels of today’s announcement, Arches will see a five-fold increase in beers going to package for grocery and package stores.
Look for exciting announcements in the coming months regarding new Arches styles soon to be available in cans. For more information, visit the brewery’s website or follow along on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
