Billings, MT – Locally owned and operated beer and wine distributor, Briggs Distributing Company, is excited to announce a new partnership with Kettlehouse Brewing Company.  Kettlehouse is a pioneer in the Montana craft beer industry, its roots dating back to 1995.  Today, Kettlehouse has several internationally recognized brews and produces more than 15,000 barrels of craft beer annually in Montana.

“Our team has worked very hard to bring Kettlehouse to Briggs,” says Pete Borowick, general sales manager at Briggs Distributing.  “Craft beer drinkers have waited a long time to buy Kettlehouse beers in Billings, and we are thrilled that we have the opportunity to grow the brand in our area.” Beer drinkers can expect to see Kettlehouse beers in their favorite stores, bars and restaurants in the spring of 2017.

Kettlehouse is known for its mission of matching the quality of its beers to the quality of the Montana outdoor experience.  Owners Tim O’Leary and Suzy Rizza built the brewery with a passion for the state’s rivers, mountains and wide open spaces as their foundation.  By handcrafting the highest quality premium beers that convey their passion for an active lifestyle, and producing and packaging them in environmentally sensitive ways, Tim and Suzy expect to grow a community of beer drinkers and thinkers that can help cool our warming world (

The addition of Kettlehouse Brewing Company comes at a time of continued growth for Briggs Distributing Company. The distributor currently represents over 85 domestic, craft and imported beer brands in its portfolio. Briggs Distributing and brewery partners such as Kettlehouse share the same values, including a passion for beer and a commitment to the communities in which they serve.
