Good River Beer Expands Distribution to Kansas

DENVER — Good River Beer has partnered with Standard Beverage to expand distribution to Kansas and support local conservation efforts. Beginning next week, Good River Beer’s collection of premium craft beers will hit shelves in select retailers, starting with Whole Foods and Balls Food Stores.

Good River Beer is dedicated to brewing quality craft beer while forwarding their mission “to protect and conserve rivers.” As part of their expansion, they’ve teamed up with a Kansas-based nonprofit, Friends of the Kaw, to amplify their effort in uniting the river community around conservation. 2% of Good River Beer proceeds will be donated to the organization to protect the Kansas River, the state’s most prominent river for recreation, and a drinking source to nearly 1 million residents.

“We founded Good River Beer with the intent to build a company that makes a positive impact on the world,” says Co-Founder, Adam Odoski. “Beer is the vehicle to make that happen. The more beer we sell, the more we can give back to rivers and surrounding communities. Friends of the Kaw does some incredible work, and I’m excited to see the impact we can make.”

Executive Director Dawn Buehler is equally excited about the partnership opportunity adding, “We love partners who advocate for clean water and are proud to collaborate with Good River Beer on a chance to protect the Kansas River. There is nothing more important than protecting this waterway as it provides drinking water to over 800,000 Kansans, is a source of recreation, and a home to all that live in and along its shores.”

Good River Beer fans in Kansas can expect to find their full lineup across the state including, Hey Fishy Fishy, a juicy, aromatic, Hazy IPA; Class V (5), a big, bold, and balanced double IPA; American, a clean and crisp Pilsner, Fu Fighter, a gold-medal-winning Belgian Style Golden Ale; Horsethief, an easy-drinking, well-balanced, and malt-oriented, Mango Blonde Ale; and a Variety 12-Pack.

Good River Beer will be available on shelves beginning late-October 2020 with launch events and river-cleanups taking place in the Spring of 2021. Visit goodriverbeer.com to learn more about Good River Beer and stay updated on the latest company news.
