Rivertowne Brewing Expands Distribution to Massachusetts

PITTSBURGH – Rivertowne Brewing, an independent craft brewery located just outside of Pittsburgh in neighboring Murrysville/Export has entered into agreement with Coastal Craft Distributors located in Southeastern MA.

Coastal Craft Distributors will begin distributing the Rivertowne Brewing portfolio within the following counties starting this month: Plymouth, Bristol, Barnstable, and Dukes (Nantucket). The initial focus will include a variety of draft and package (cans) SKUs from the following list of Rivertowne brands:

  • Hala Kahiki Pineapple Ale
  • Float Trip IPA
  • Grateful White
  • Hazy Morning IPA
  • Jump! IPA
  • Dock Party IPA Mix 12 Packs

VP of Sales & Marketing, Rob Johnson, had this to say, “We are very excited to begin selling our beer in one of the oldest fishing and boating communities in the country. The water activities and recreation enjoyed around Cape Cod and Coastal MA make for a great fit with the Rivertowne brand. We feel that our brand will resonate well with the retailers and consumers across these markets.” Rob also added, “Shane is a native Cape Coddian. My relationship with Shayne Byrnes goes back to my days at Blue Point Brewing Company on Long Island, NY. Shayne and I worked well together and always knew exactly what to expect from one another. I look forward to working with Shayne again and helping him grow Coastal Craft’s business in one of the most storied areas of the country.”

If you would like to be one of the first in The Cape to get your hands on these exciting Rivertowne beers, please be sure to contact Coastal Craft Distributors. The beers are expected to land the week of July 16, 2018.
