FORT COLLINS, Colo. — Funkwerks takes a bite of the Big Apple this week with the addition of New York City to its distribution footprint via Manhattan Beer Distributors and a series of launch events throughout the area.
This announcement comes after Funkwerks’ additions of Ohio, Kentucky, and Chicagoland to its footprint last month continuing Funkwerks plans to align their distribution footprint with their partners Brooklyn Brewery and 21st Amendment and bringing the total count of states lucky to serve Funkwerks beer to twelve.
Draft and 6-packs offerings of Funkwerks select year-round beers— Funkwerks Saison, Tropic King, Raspberry Provincial, and White— will be available in select, craft-centric establishments in Manhattan Beer’s distribution footprint along with their newly released Winky’s Snack Packs featuring Saison, Raspberry Provincial, and limited boutique releases, Miho, and Passion Fruit Provincial.
“We are excited to finally distribute our beer to our sales partner, Brooklyn Brewery’s home state! We have a strong sales team in the area and we are looking forward to selling our beer in the amazing selection of bars, restaurants, and liquor stores that New York has to offer. We have no doubt that we will fit into their beer culture” said Brad Lincoln, President of Funkwerks.
