Pipeworks Expands Distribution to New York


New York City, NY — Sarene Craft Beer Distributors LLC today announced that they have signed a distribution agreement with Pipeworks Brewing Company for the entire state of New York.

With the generous support of donors on Kickstarter, Pipeworks opened in 2012 as one of the very first crowd funded breweries. Starting on a small 3.5-barrel brewhouse and hand-delivering every single case, Pipework’s is thrilled to launch their new 30-barrel brewhouse and second production facility in late Spring of 2015. While the batches may be bigger, the experimental spirit lives on, with a stronger emphasis on barrel aged beers and the introduction of year round products in 16oz cans.

“When we set out to start Sarene a few years ago, Pipeworks was a dream of ours, we just never thought it would happen.” Eric Schulman, Co-Owner of Sarene said. “The beer scene is getting awfully crowded. It’s only going to get harder to stand out on the shelf and make a name for yourself. Thanks to the inspired stewardship of Pipework’s founders Beejay Oslon and Gerrit Lewis, Pipeworks has made a name for themselves across the country. They’re the perfect combination of beer quality, marketing and price point. I think they’re poised to be very successful in New York and we’re honored to represent them.”

Strong Mike, Operations Manager at Pipeworks added, “We are thrilled to enter the exciting New York craft beer community through a partnership with Sarene Craft Beer Distributors.”

Pipeworks and Sarene will be hosting a few launch events in New York City in June. After the launch, full distribution will begin with kegs, specialty 22 ounce bottle releases as well as cans of Ninja Vs. Unicorn, Blood of the Unicorn, Lizard King, Close Encounter and War Bird.
