Fresh off a year in which the company added five states to its distribution footprint, SweetWater Brewing has announced plans to broaden its availability once again, this time to Texas and Maryland.
The Atlanta-based brewery will enter the new markets next month and has partnered up with Silver Eagle Distributing for coverage throughout the Houston and San Antonio metro areas in Texas. In Maryland, SweetWater has inked deals with a slew of wholesalers to cover different regions, including Kelly Distributing (Easton), Wantz Distributing (Frederick), Guy Distributing (Leonardtown), Mitchell Beverages (Baltimore and Annapolis), Bob Hall Distributing (College Park), and Eastern Shore Distributing (Salisbury).
With the addition of Texas and Maryland, SweetWater products are now sold in 13 states and Washington D.C. The brewery has also announced plans to expand throughout Chicago this April.
In 2014, SweetWater sold 192,500 barrels of beer, a volume increase of 33 percent over the year prior.
