Begyle Brewing to Add Distribution in Michigan

Chicago, IL. – Available outside the Chicagoland area for the first time, Begyle Brewing has expanded distribution to Southeast Michigan. A selection of their flagship beers will be available on draft, and in 6-packs of cans, with seasonal beers and specialty brews to be released in the future.

The brewery’s core range includes; Begyle Blonde (Blonde Ale Brewed with Honey), Free Bird (American Pale Ale), Crash Landed (American Pale Wheat Ale), and Hophazardly (American India Pale Ale). These, and future offerings, will be distributed through Rave Associates of Ann Arbor.

Founded in 2012, by Southeast Michigan natives, Kevin Cary and Matt Ritchey, Begyle Brewing has strong ties to the Mitten. Owner Kevin Cary shares his excitement for the partnership with Rave Associates and the expansion to Michigan: “Since the beginning, we’ve imagined seeing our product on the shelves–and in the glasses–of our favorite party stores and bars, and in the hands of some of our favorite people. This truly is a dream come true and we’re excited to come home.”

As a company, Begyle Brewing prides itself on offering a diverse and approachable selection of quality beer that brings people together. With their CSB (community supported brewery) program, they’ve built a community of beer lovers, offering members 6 or 12-month growler-fill subscriptions.

By hosting events and supporting local organizations, they’ve also strengthened their connection to the community at large. Located in the Ravenswood Industrial Corridor of Chicago (also known as “Malt Row”, Begyle’s brewery and taproom have become a neighborhood staple, as well as a destination for travelers.
