Fat Cat Beer Company Creates New Distribution Arm in California

SAN DIEGO — The Fat Cat Beer Company, makers of “sessionable,” handcrafted beer in cans, announced it received its California distributor and importer’s license and has started selling its products throughout the state.

After achieving significant traction in Florida, Georgia and Virginia, the San Diego-based company that brews its beers in Wisconsin now brings their beer to its own backyard.

“We work closely with our distributors in our core business markets and really provide most of the brand building infrastructure. After speaking with some CA distributors, we believed our brands, at least at this juncture, would be best served by our own people. Given that we are a San Diego-based business, this decision will enable us to proactively impact how we grow. It will also allow us to determine how we forge the relationships with our growing list of customers,” said Bruce Taub, President of The Fat Cat Beer Company. “We have a dedicated team of account managers who are extremely customer service oriented. They are placing our beers in some of the most popular places in San Diego with more than 80 accounts opened in less than 60 days. Be on the lookout for the Fat Cat beer truck around town!”

The Fat Cat Beer Company currently offers five distinctly different craft beers, including its Fat CatÔäó Lager, Sultans of WheatÔäó, Shawshank’s InjunctionÔäó Pale Ale, Beale StÔäó Brown Ale and ConfessionÔäó IPA.
