Pigeon Hill Brewing Co. Adds Distribution in Florida

MUSKEGON, Mich.Pigeon Hill Brewing Company, a Michigan-based craft brewery, is excited to announce the arrival of its award-winning lineup to the South.  For its first foray outside of Michigan, Pigeon Hill has agreed to limited distribution within the state of Florida.  Starting next week, the first selections from Pigeon Hill’s core lineup of beers will be available in cans in finer craft beer stores.

In partnership with Sunshine State Distribution and marketing and consulting firm SimpleSpeak, Pigeon Hill is initially offering three SKUs to the market including SALTED CARAMEL PORTER (S.C.P.), OATMEAL CRÈME PIE (O.C.P.), and RENNY DOUBLE IPA.  More core brands and other limited rotational offerings are expected to make their way to the sunshine state in the near future.  To aid with its growth within and outside of Michigan, Pigeon Hill is also excited to announce that it has selected SimpleSpeak for distribution, branding, and marketing consulting.

During its six years of operation, Pigeon Hill Brewing Company has succeeded using more elbow grease than capital and more determination than experience.  As a testament to their love for their community and its history, their taproom became a living museum, with lights from historic Muskegon foundries, tables built from lumber era pine, and decorations celebrating Muskegon and its rich brewing history.  In the last four years, operations have grown exponentially, leading Pigeon Hill to distribute its award-winning beers throughout each corner of Michigan.

“To call this an exciting time for Pigeon Hill would certainly be an understatement,” said Michael Brower, Co-Founder and Director of Sales and Marketing at Pigeon Hill Brewing Co. “As a bunch of blue-collar boys who were able to use craft beer as a way to help our community – and export our Community’s product throughout Michigan – we’ve always felt lucky.  Now we see the opportunity to send great beer – and our modern rustbelt export – to Florida.  It’s an honor and a challenge, and we’re excited to use our beer to grow the bonds between Michigan and Florida.  While home has always been our focus, we’re confident that we can really serve all of these missions with the support of our distribution partner, Sunshine State, and the added insight of Simplespeak.”

So, what’s next for Pigeon Hill Brewing Company?  “Smart growth is more important than fast growth.  Since the very beginning, we’ve believed more in growing organically, focusing on quality, and building a foundation.  While the world is very different now than when we made our 2020 plans, our strategy has put us in a great place, where we decide our future based on ‘what we want to be.’  For now, we don’t have all the answers, but we’re excited to keep making and exporting great Muskegon beer to everyone who wants it.”
