Devil’s Canyon Brewing Company Signs with Stanislaus Distributing


San Carlos, Calif. – Devil’s Canyon Brewing Company today announced that they have signed with Stanislaus Distributing Company to bring their sustainably handcrafted products to enthusiasts of craft beer in the California counties of Stanislaus, Tuolumne, Mariposa, Merced, San Joaquin, Amador, Calaveras and Alpine (Bear Valley only) as well as the city of Galt in Sacramento County.

From their founding in 2001 until 2013, Devil’s Canyon self-distributed their products in the San Francisco Bay Area, introducing a generation of people to their first artisanal beer. As their beers gained in popularity, the husband and wife team of Chris and Kristiann Garrett began to look for brand-building distributors sharing their work ethic and business philosophies that would efficiently bring their products into the marketplace.

Stanislaus Distributing is a California Central Valley institution based in the City of Modesto with roots dating back to 1933. The Varni Brothers Corporation (Stanislaus Distributing) began as a small beverage business where Attilio Varni bottled, labeled and delivered local wine from casks and barrels to restaurants and taverns in the area.

“It’s great to be working with a family owned business that can trace its roots back 3 generations.” stated Chris Garrett, Owner. “Stanislaus Distributing has seen the beverage industry change over the years and they have always positioned themselves to adapt quickly by representing the very best products. I am proud to have them represent mine.”

“We are excited to represent the Devil’s Canyon lineup of delicious craft brews. Their years of experience has led them to produce consistently high quality award winning beer.” said Anthony Varni, Varni Brothers CEO. “We are happy to make the Devil’s Canyon brand available to consumers in the Central Valley and Central Mountain counties. We believe that beer drinkers in our distribution territory are going to be pleased.”

In addition to making award-winning, sustainably handcrafted beer and root beer, the brewery has a storied history of focusing on reutilization. From re-claimed lumber to an infrastructure that boasts over 90% repurposed materials, Devil’s Canyon’s facility is an authentic testament to their commitment to set the standard for innovative sustainability efforts.

Devil’s Canyon’s Full Boar Scotch Ale, California Sunshine Rye IPA, Deadicated Amber Ale are available in 5 USG and 15.5 USG kegs in addition to 22oz bottles. Belle, a unique California Sparkling Ale, is available in 5 USG Kegs and 750ml bottles.
