Funkwerks Brewery Signs First Distributor, American Eagle (Video)

The Fort Collins-based craft brewery Funkwerks is broadening its distribution footprint and has signed its first wholesaler, American Eagle Distributing Co.

Funkwerks co-founder Brad Lincoln told Brewbound.com that American Eagle will begin distributing the brewery’s products throughout all of Northern Colorado, with the exception of Fort Collins where Funkwerks will continue to self-distribute its beers.

“American Eagle was one of the first distributors to approach us and they are very genuine people,” said Lincoln. “We like dealing with them and we know other folks who have had good experiences.”

Lincoln also said the company is in contract negotiations with at least one other wholesaler for expanded distribution in the Boulder and Colorado markets. The company hopes to expand across the rest of Colorado and surrounding states in 2013.

Brewbound.com recently met with Lincoln and discussed Funkwerks’ position in the market and future growth plans. Hear what Lincoln has to say in our latest video segment.
