River North Expands Distribution to Kansas


Denver, CO — River North Brewery has partnered with Crown Distributors to bring their unique brews to thirsty connoisseurs in Kansas.

Starting Mid-February, River North beers will be available in in 40 new counties in central and northeast Kansas. Award-winning brands like River North White, Quandary, Avarice, Unified Theory, River North IPA, Hoppenberg and J. Marie will all be available. River North will send bottles, kegs and cans.

Founder and Head Brewer Matt Hess hails from McPherson, Kan., one of several Kansas towns that will see River North on the shelf and on tap soon. Others include but are not limited to Salina, Manhattan and Topeka.

“When we opened three years ago, I never imagined we would be able to bring River North beer back to my home turf in such a short timeframe,” Hess said. “It will be very exciting to see our beer in stores and on tap where I grew up.”

Matt and Jessica Hess opened the award-winning River North Brewery in February 2012. Brewing in the RiNo district of Denver, River North focuses on yeast-centric beers with Belgian-style flair and was recently named 2015 Brewery of the Year in the Best of Craft Beer Awards.  Like River North on Facebook (facebook.com/rivernorthbrewery) or follow on Twitter/Instagram (@rivernorthbrew) for the latest insights.
