Barrel House Z to Expand Distribution Throughout Massachusetts


Weymouth, MA —Barrel House Z of Weymouth, MA will soon be available to more craft beer fans in Massachusetts. Today, the company is pleased to announce plans to expand distribution. Barrel House Z has partnered with Horizon Beverage and Quality Beverage (both part of Revolution Beverage Group) for coverage in the North Shore, South Shore, South Coast, Cape Cod & Islands and Central Massachusetts. This superior network of wholesalers will help deliver this small-batch product with high level of execution to the retailers and restauranteurs throughout the state.

“Partnering with Horizon and Quality will help us reach a wider audience thanks to an expanded distribution area.” said Barrel House Z founder & brewer Russ Heissner. “We’re a young, lean start up focused on brewing great beer. We’re proud of the excitement our opening has generated among beer enthusiasts and want to keep up with demand for our locally crafted beer.”

“Barrel House Z presents a very unique concept, with their focus on barrel aging, superior quality, and local collaboration. Their combination of experience and innovation truly sets them apart in a very crowded marketplace”, Dan O’Donnell, Director of Sales & Marketing for Revolution Beverage Group, said in a statement. “We were all very impressed with what Barrel House Z has accomplished so far. Their quality and consistency demonstrates their passion for craft beer and we are very proud to be chosen as a distributor partner in Massachusetts.”

Barrel House Z is a small-batch, barrel-aged brewery and tasting room in Weymouth, MA founded by Russ Heissner in 2016.
