Stratford, CT – Two Roads Brewing Company of Stratford, CT announced today that Manhattan Beer Distributors will be the sole distributor for the Two Roads Brands in New York City, Long Island, and the counties of Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Orange, Dutchess, Ulster, Sullivan and Delaware. The launch is planned to commence February 18th.

Clem Pellani, VP Sales and Marketing for Two Roads, commented that “we never had any doubt that Manhattan Beer would end up being our distributor. We’ve known them and worked with them for a long time during our careers in the beer business. To us, they stand apart based upon their commitment and track record for brand building. Manhattan Beer also has an exceptionally strong infrastructure in place to support its craft beer portfolio. With our retail sales team working alongside of their team, we are very optimistic about our brand’s success in the NYC metro market.”

Robert Mitchell, VP Craft, Wine & Spirits also remarked that “Two Roads Brewing brings in an unusual combination of industry experience, terrific branding, a local, beautiful brewing facility, marketing resources and most importantly some exceptional beers made by Phil Markowski, Two Road’s well regarded Brewmaster. We are really looking forward to launching this brand.”


Two Roads opened its doors in December 2012 having earlier acquired and renovated a 100 year old vacant, brick factory building in Stratford Ct. Its name and philosophy are inspired by the Robert Frost Poem “The Road Less Taken”—a philosophy brought to life in the beers they create using state-of-the-art brewing and packaging equipment.
