Texas City, TX – 2-Row Distributing, a division of Del Papa Distributing, is pleased to announce a partnership with SweetWater Brewing to distribute their brands across their Texas City, Beaumont and Victoria marketing territories beginning January 23, 2017.
SweetWater Brewing is located in Atlanta, Georgia and began distributing their beers in the State of Texas in early 2015. They have continued to increase their distribution footprint across the state over the past two years and today their beers can be found in most markets across the Lone Star State.
SweetWater has a rich philanthropic focus surrounding the preservation and protection of our waterways. Their annual Save Our Water campaign raises over $200,000 for partner organizations including Ducks Unlimited, Trout Unlimited and the Coastal Conservation Association. 2-Row Distributing looks forward to sharing SweetWater’s high quality and unique line-up with the 17 counties in their marketing territory.
“SweetWater is the largest brewery in the Southeast and one that has many fans in Texas. We are excited to work with them and help their westward expansion by bringing their quality beers into the markets we serve,” said Jeffrey Wheeler, General Manager of 2-Row Distributing.
Popular brews like 420 Extra Pale Ale, SweetWater IPA, Hash Session IPA, the seasonal SweetWater variety packs and others will make their way onto shelves and taps beginning January 23.

About Del Papa Distributing Company
In 2010 Del Papa Distributing celebrated its 100 th business anniversary. From its founding by an Italian immigrant, Omero Del Papa Sr., in Galveston in 1910, to its current operations distributing a variety of national, regional and local beer brands from three distribution centers serving seventeen Texas counties along the Texas Gulf Coast, Del Papa has remained committed to supporting and strengthening the many communities in which its customers and employees live. In 2015 Del Papa Distributing created 2-Row Distributing, a strictly craft beer focused division to provide its supplier and retail partners with the necessary focus, expertise, and category management skills required for this exciting and growing category. Del Papa Distributing still speaks today to those old-fashioned values of quality, honesty, integrity and work ethic. If anything, these ideals have grown stronger over the course of a century.
