Small Town Brewery Expands Distribution to Texas

Dallas, TX – Andrews Distributing is proud to announce a new partnership with Small Town Brewery of La Crosse, WI.

The brewery was founded by Tim Kovac in 2010 in Wauconda, IL. Kovac says his great-great-grandfather was the captain of a ship in England in the 1600s. As family legend has it, he won a brewery during a high-stakes card game, and then began crafting his own beers. Unaware of the family story, the tale was revealed to Kovac when he announced to his family his plans to open a brewery. Today, Small Town Brewery operates with the goal to honor this family’s beer making tradition by creating brews with unique and flavorful ingredients.

Small Town’s Not Your Father’s Root Beer is brewed with a variety of spices that create a bold, sweet and smooth flavor profile. At 5.9% alcohol by volume, the adult beverage is a unique take on a classic treat.

Mike Machul, Andrews brand manager for Small Town Brewery, said the Andrews team looks forward to sharing a beverage that is so reminiscent of a drink many grew up loving.

“Root beer is a great nostalgic beverage, and Not Your Father’s Root Beer brings back memories of the beloved drink,” Machul said. “We look forward to sharing it with both beer lovers and those who are still searching for a unique craft beverage to enjoy.”

Andrews plans to launch Small Town Brewery in DFW and Corpus Christi July 6. Not Your Father’s Root Beer will be available in six-pack bottles.
