“We are thrilled that Urban South chose to partner with us to bring in their brands from New Orleans,” said Adam Mitchell, CEO of Mitchell Distributing. “I, like many Mississippians, have so many fond memories from New Orleans, so bringing the premier brewer into the Gulf Coast is extremely gratifying. Urban South brings not only the highest quality craft brands, but an array of light beer and seltzers that provide options for every beer consumer. We are proud to work with them to serve the beer drinkers and retailers in our area.”
