Maui Brewing Expands Distribution to Illinois


Kihei, Hawaii — Maui Brewing Co. has announced its mainland expansion into the state of Illinois, partnering with Windy City Distributing.

Maui Brewing Company’s flagship beers including Bikini Blonde Lager, Big Swell IPA, Coconut Hiwa Porter, and Pineapple Mana Wheat are making their way to the Chicago area for the first time and will be available to the public in the upcoming days.

“Our Illinois fans have been asking for a while that we share our Hawaiian beer with them,” said Pete Scheider, National Sales Manager, “Partnering with Windy City Distributing allows us the opportunity to provide our fantastic beers to those who’ve never experienced Maui or those who want to return to the islands 12 ounces at a time.”

As distribution widens throughout the state in the weeks ahead, seasonal and limited release beers will be available along with the flagships. To locate MBC beer once it hits your market, a helpful beer finder is available on the company’s website.

Maui Brewing Company is on pace to brew 45,000 barrels in 2016. MBC is a fiercely local company and has remained steadfast regarding local production. The MBC team are stewards of their communities and the ‘aina, and curators of the craft beer way of life. Their beers have been recognized worldwide for quality and innovation.
