Perrin Brewing Expands Distribution to Chicago

Comstock Park, Mich. — Perrin Brewing joins Windy City Distributing to introduce the Perrin brand to the craft beer scene of Chicago. Perrin, based in Comstock Park, Michigan will kick-off the launch offering Black Ale, 98 Problems IPA, Blackberry IPA and Pack of Problems.

The growth for Perrin Brewing has continued after a collaborative partnership with Oskar Blues Brewery (the first craft brewery in the US to can its beer) in Longmont, Colorado in 2015. Part of this continued growth is the addition of canned packaging making Perrin beer available at most major retailers across the market. Since the rollout of can distribution, Perrin is prepared to offer packaged beer in several states outside of Michigan.

Perrin Brewing distribution into Chicago market begins the week of August 21.

Perrin Black Ale | ABV 5.8% IBU 20

A light bodied, crisp and flavorful dark ale with hints of semi-sweet chocolate and soft nuances of fresh coffee. This beer is counterintuitive in the way that it pours dark as night but tastes like a lighter beer encompassing a range of full flavor. #1 New Craft Can SKU in the US

98 Problems IPA | ABV 6.5% IBU 60

Our IPA accomplishes the nearly impossible feat of balancing a sweet malty backbone along with a blend of West Coast hops, which creates a crisp bitterness and imparts massive floral and citrus aromas. This is how an IPA should taste! 98 on RateBeer

Blackberry IPA | ABV 5% IBU 35

This seasonal brew combines the tart sweetness of ripened Blackberries along with an aromatic floral bouquet of fresh Michigan bittering hops, sit back with this beer and enjoy the change of the seasons wherever you are.
