The Kansas City-based craft brewery — the twelfth largest in the U.S. — today announced plans to expand its distribution footprint throughout the Old Dominion State. Select offerings from Boulevard Brewing are already available in parts of Northern Virginia.
“We’re delighted to be able to expand our presence in Virginia,” Steve Mills, vice president of sales for Boulevard said in a press release. “The state has come a long way in a short time, earning a reputation as a craft-centric market, a place where serious brewers want to be.”
Boulevard has signed distribution agreements with Loveland Distributing of Richmond, Chesbay Distributing, LLC, located in Chesapeake, Va., serving the Hampton Roads area, and Blue Ridge Beverage Company, which services the western side of the state.
Virginia wholesalers will sell Smokestack Series beers as well as Boulevard’s core offerings, including: Unfiltered Wheat, Single-Wide I.P.A. and 80-Acre Hoppy Wheat. A slow rollout in Richmond will begin on June 1 and continue throughout other parts of the state until August.
