Greensboro, NC—Craft Central, a dedicated craft beer distributor based in central North Carolina, has begun distributing Carolina Brewing Company’s craft beers in the Triad region. Carolina Brewing Company, based in Holly Springs, NC, celebrates their 20th anniversary as they enter the Winston-Salem and Greensboro-area markets for the first time.

Founders of Carolina Brewing headed east from Seattle, Washington searching for a favorable economy that would support a local brewery. They found their home near Raleigh, North Carolina over 20 years ago. Now, having an established brand in the Triangle, Carolina Brewing decided it was time to expand. Their popular beers such as Carolina Pale Ale, Carolina India Pale Ale and Carolina Nut Brown Ale may now be enjoyed in the Triad through distribution with Craft Central.

“We are eager to bring Triangle-based Carolina Brewing Company to the Triad,” said Chris Caffey, President and CEO of Craft Central. “The craft beer drinkers in our area have spoken and we listened. We know this brand will prosper for many years to come.”

“In our 20th year of business, we decided to start expanding our distribution,” said Joe Zonin, Owner and Sales Director of Carolina Brewing Company. “Caffey Distributing has a great reputation in the area for years of quality service. Their new Craft Central division shows their commitment to high-quality local breweries. It allows us the confidence to go into a new market with a very knowledgeable staff already in place.”
