Bell’s to Enter West Virginia in July


Add West Virginia to Bell’s growing U.S footprint.

One day after revealing its Mississippi distributors, the Michigan-based craft beer maker today announced it has signed agreements with a trio of Anheuser-Busch wholesalers throughout West Virginia. Proud Eagle, Mountain Eagle and Northern Eagle will begin selling the Bell’s brand throughout by mid-July, the brewery said in a statement.

Owned and operated by Bill Rucker Jr., Scott Parkes, and Jim Linsenmeyer, the statewide “Eagle” collective distributes a variety of domestic, craft and import brands via its seven warehouses located throughout the state.

Bell’s said it plans to distribute its products in 30 states before the end of 2016.
