Stratford, CT — Two Roads Brewing Company of Stratford, CT announced today that the brand will be rolling into the state of Colorado beginning on August 28th. Two Roads is excited to partner with Crooked Stave Artisans, the distribution arm of Denver’s Crooked Stave Brewing Company. The launch will include a series of in-market events listed below, and will feature both draft and package offerings.
Two Roads Brewing Company was founded in 2012 by four friends who dreamed for years of starting a craft brewery. Since opening their doors, Two Roads has been one of the fastest growing craft brands in the nation. The company fosters a “road less traveled” philosophy in the beers they make and how they make them. In that spirit, Phil Markowski, their award-winning Master Brewer and 28-year craft beer veteran, has created an extensive lineup that takes a unique twist on classic beer styles. “Over the past two years, we’ve worked with our friends at Crooked Stave Artisans to have brief periods of distribution during the weeks surrounding the Great American Beer Festival in Denver. In both years, we found that Colorado craft beer drinkers were very receptive to Two Roads,” said Clement Pellani, Chief Commercial Officer of Two Roads Brewing. “And knowing Crooked Stave’s strong reputation for developing craft brands, it made perfect sense to both organizations to ‘take the road less traveled’ and bring Two Roads to Colorado for a full-blown launch.”
“We are very excited to announce that we are expanding Two Roads distribution to Colorado,” said Two Roads Director of Sales Meghan Zachry. “We have a strong relationship and great respect for Crooked Stave as a brewer and as a distributor of craft beer. Their knowledge of the Colorado craft beer scene makes them a perfect partner to bring our diverse portfolio to the state’s wonderful craft beer consumers.”
“CSA is thrilled to be able to offer a range of beers from Two Roads and are pleased to welcome them to our Crooked Stave Artisans family,” stated Mike Layman, CSA Brand Manager. “Everyone at CSA has enjoyed their beers for many years and we are thrilled to be bringing on a great new addition to our ever-growing portfolio. Two Roads is a perfect addition since they share a dedicated vision for obtaining the highest degree of quality with each of their thoughtful offerings.”
