DENVER — Crooked Stave Artisans Distributing (CSA) is proud to announce that later this year it will be handing over the reins of the distribution portfolio for Importer Shelton Brothers Inc., giving it back to the Importer in the state of Colorado.
Crooked Stave currently distributes Shelton Brothers products and will remain the appointed distributor until Shelton Brothers is ready to start self-distributing. Shelton Brothers will be taking the steps to form their own distribution company in Colorado with the support of CSA, a step Shelton Brothers has taken in numerous other states already.
Crooked Stave and Shelton Brothers have a close relationship, working together throughout the years in multiple states, in addition to Colorado, and CSA is excited Shelton Brothers is ready to take over distributing their portfolio in Colorado.
“The plan was always to partner with Shelton Brothers, bringing in their exceptional portfolio until they were ready to open their own company in Colorado. We see this as a testament to our knowledgeable, amazing team at CSA, helping grow the brands within the Shelton portfolio over the years to the point where it was feasible for Shelton Brothers to take over,” states Chad Yakobson, Owner of CSA. “With The Festival being held in Colorado later this year, it was the perfect opportunity for Shelton Brothers to launch their distribution company.”
Shelton Brothers and Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project have had similar arrangements in other states, agreeing to distribution within the Shelton Brothers network, helping with sales, until Crooked Stave was ready to work directly with distributors.
CSA will continue to bring in unique and exceptional offerings to the Colorado market focusing on new suppliers monthly as part of a rotational “Vacation Series” and will feature brands like Lawson’s Finest Liquids out of Vermont and Chicago’s Half Acre along with other exceptional friends.
Crooked Stave Artisans Distributing is the distribution arm of Crooked Stave Artisan Beer Project. CSA is focused on the artisans they represent including an ever-growing portfolio of the best international and American breweries, cideries, wineries, distilleries, and food producers.
