Bent Water Brewing Company Expands Distribution to Rhode Island

LYNN, Mass. — Bent Water Brewing Company is celebrating the new year with a big announcement: they will soon be distributing to Rhode Island.

The Lynn, Massachusetts based brewery is currently available in the states of Massachusetts, Florida, New Hampshire, and Pennsylvania. Rhode Island will become the fifth state to sell Bent Water beer, and the third new state to carry Bent Water’s beers in the last six months.

“Making our beers readily available for consumers has always been one of the top priorities of the brewery,” said Aaron Reames, Co-founder and President, Bent Water Brewing. “Given our location in Massachusetts and proximity to Rhode Island, we felt it was overdue to make our beers easily accessible to our neighbors in the Ocean State.”

Bent Water Brewing will be distributed in Rhode Island by McLaughlin & Moran, a third-generation family owned and operated company with relationships throughout the state.

Bent Water will enter the Ocean State with their three most popular flagship beers: Sluice Juice, a New England IPA; Thunder Funk, a West Coast-style IPA; and Double Thunder Funk, a West Coast-style DIPA that is referred to as the ‘big sibling’ of Thunder Funk.

Sluice Juice and Thunder Funk were recently awarded rankings of 94 and 95 respectively from noted beer & spirits publication, Wine Enthusiast, which categorizes both beers as Superb.

“New England is considered the birthplace of the Hazy IPA, and each state has their own claim to that title,” continued Reames. “We know Rhode Island has some top tier IPA-makers like Tilted Barn, Proclamation Ales, and Long Live Beerworks. We’re excited to see how people think we stack up!”
