BEL AIR, MD — DuClaw Brewing Company is proud to announce the arrival of their award-winning craft brews in the Philadelphia market, named by Frommer’s as one of the World’s Best Cities for Beer in 2012. Availability in bars, shops and restaurants is expected this month and comes just a few short months after DuClaw expanded into the South Central portion of Pennsylvania.
DuClaw top sellers like HellRazer IPA and EuForia Toffee Nut Brown Ale will be available in the city that’s home to America’s first lager. DuClaw will also bring along perennial favorites Devil’s Milk Barleywine available in 12 oz. bottle six packs and on draft, along with special edition brews like World Cup and Great American Beer Festival medal winner X-1 Imperial Chocolate Rye Porter in both 22 oz. bottles and on draft.
“Entering the Philadelphia market is a huge milestone for us” said Dave Benfield, president of DuClaw Brewing Company. “This is a city rooted in beer so our progression into Philadelphia is a true testament to DuClaw brewers and supporters.”
Known for their impressive variety and ever-rotating roster of seasonal brews, DuClaw Brewing Company will continually add exciting new additions to the lineup of beers available in Philadelphia, Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties through Bella Vista Specialty Beer Wholesale.
“We have been following DuClaw’s progression for a few years and have been thrilled with the beers they brew,” said Jordan Fetfatzes, vice president of Bella Vista Specialty Beer Wholesale. “In one of the most important markets in the world for craft beer, it’s extremely humbling and an honor to be DuClaw’s wholesale partner for the Philadelphia region. We recognize that DuClaw has the trajectory and creativity to become a Mid-Atlantic craft beer powerhouse.”
DuClaw Brewing Company will host a launch party in November to celebrate the brewery’s new place in one of the most sophisticated beer markets in the United States. Look for DuClaw brews on tap at Cambridge, The Devil’s Den, and Royal Tavern and in stores like Beer Heaven, The Craft Beer Outlet and The Bottle Shop.
