FLAGSTAFF, AZ – Mother Road Brewing Company is proud to announce their first out of state distribution as they introduce their beers to the state of New Mexico this month. Mother Road has partnered with Premier Distributing Company, and will launch statewide the week of March 23rd with bottled and draft beers. Mother Road Brewing Company is the first Arizona brewery to distribute to the New Mexico market.
“We’re thrilled to be joining the great craft beer scene already in New Mexico, and excited about the opportunity to add to its continued growth.” said brewery co-founder Alissa Marquess.
Launching their first out of state distribution has been made possible because of Mother Road’s 2014 expansion in fermentation and bottling capacity. Mother Road will sell their Lost Highway Black IPA, Roadside American Pale, Gold Road Kölsch Style Ale as well as Seasonal offerings.
The brewery has launch events planned in Albuquerque and Santa Fe, including a tasting at Total Wine Uptown on March 25th from 5:30-7pm, a tasting at Total Wine Cottonwood on March 26th from 1-3pm and at Jubilation Wine and Spirits on the 26th from 4-6pm. The founders will also be on hand March 28that the Marchfest Beer Festival at Buffalo Thunder in Santa Fe.
About Mother Road Brewing Company
Driving a dark stretch of two lane road, founders Michael and Alissa Marquess were pondering how to better live their creed of ‘finding joy in the adventure’ when they came up with the plan to start a brewery. Founded in 2011 Mother Road brings together their passions of craft beer, road trips to out-of-the-way places and the enjoyment of life.
Mother Road Brewing is located in Flagstaff, Arizona, along an original alignment of Route 66 in a 1920’s era laundry building. The small, dedicated staff hand-crafts beers on their 15 barrel system including gold-medal winning Roadside American Pale Ale and Lost Highway Black IPA. They treasure the intersection of conversation, community and friendship that’s fostered by sharing a pint and continue to give back to the community through quirky events like the Pints and Pooches Dog Show and the annual Bike Olympics, benefiting local charities.
