High Water Brewing Expands Distribution to Montana

STOCKTON, Calif. — High Water Brewing continues to expand their distribution footprint thanks to a new partnership with George’s Distributing out of Montana. Their beers are now available in 15 states across the country. From High Water’s sought after Calambic series of sours to their s’mores inspired Campfire Stout, both sides are excited to bring these beers to customers in Big Sky Country.

Founded more than 40 years, George’s is Montana’s only statewide distributor making them an ideal organization for High Water to work with. “George’s is known for the culture of innovation and a willingness to try new things, which meshes really well with the unique beers we create”, said Steve Altimari, Brewmaster and President of High Water. “And Montana’s outdoor oriented lifestyle is the perfect place to enjoy Campfire Stout!”

George’s will begin distribution with Campfire Stout, Central Valley Breakfast Sour, Felice Barrel Aged Specialty Ale, and Sugaree Maple Pecan Pie Specialty Ale.

About High Water Brewing

Now in their seventh year of production, High Water Brewing continues to build on their foundation of consistent annual growth and an expanding portfolio of “Unique Flavors for the Curious Palate”. Leveraging a successful 15-year brewing career, Brewmaster Steve Altimari embarked on the formation of High Water Brewing, with final licensing and production commencing in March 2011.  “High Water” being a playful interpretation of Altimari from Italian, “Alta” meaning High and “Mare” meaning Sea or Water.

Inspired by the most respected and creative brewing practices and styles around the world, Steve’s love of beer and unbridled passion for all things flavorful have led to a line of products that represent the very best of the best.  Assisted by his wife Barri, with her culinary background and prowess in flavorology, they create a product portfolio that has a little something for everyone. From the classic styles to the esoteric.
