Deschutes Changes Bay Area Distributor


Deschutes Brewery today announced it has signed new distribution agreements with Horizon Beverage Company and Markstein Sales Company, for coverage throughout Alameda and Contra Costa counties in the San Francisco Bay Area.

“We’re excited to be working with Horizon and Markstein in the East Bay, one of our vital ‘neighboring’ regions,” Chris Hudson, Deschutes’ western division director said in a statement.

The Oregon brewery’s products were previously distributed by Bay Area Beverage Company, which also sells offerings from other established craft players like New Belgium, Lagunitas and 21st Amendment, according to the company’s website.

“We are thankful to Bay Area Beverage for their many years of support and wish them many more years of success,” Hudson said.
