Pipeworks Brewing adds Connecticut distribution

Chicago based Pipeworks Brewing Co. will be distributing to the state of Connecticut. The brewery has signed a distribution deal with Sarene Craft Beer Distribution.

A exact date when beer will be flowing was not specified by Pipeworks. They did, however, provide a little insight as to why they are skipping over a few local states and pouring in Connecticut.

Well, we’re a self-distributing brewery. That means we load our beer into vans in Chicago and drive it ourselves to retailers, restaurants, and bars to ensure that it arrives in your glass or fridge in the freshest condition possible. There’s a cap on how much beer we can self-distribute in our home state and we’ve hit that ceiling.

Pipeworks Brewing was started by Gerrit Lewis and Beejay Oslon in 2012. Besides Chicago, the brewery can be found in Colorado through Tivoli Distribution.

Odell Brewing adds Illinois distribution in February

Odell Brewing Chicago

Fort Collins, Colorado based Odell Brewing will start distribution to Illinois starting February. The brewery has signed a distribution deal with Breakthru Beverage.

RELATED: Odell Elephunk Wild IPA

The brewery will lead with flagship 90 Shilling, IPA, Drumroll APA, Myrcenary Double IPA, as well as Runoff Red, Tree Shaker Imperial Peach Ale. Limited releases will debut in the state as well, including Friek Raspberry & Cherry Sour, and Dark Theory Black Cherry Sour.

“I always said that we wouldn’t distribute in Chicago unless the Cubs won the World Series. All kidding aside, Illinois has long been one of the nation’s leading markets. These folks know beer, and as a brewery that has largely distributed in the Rocky Mountain region, we’re excited to step into our first state east of the Mississippi River.” – Founder, Doug Odell.

Deschutes announces further distribution

Deschutes announces further distribution to hit the remaining southern sections of Virginia. Norfolk, Suffolk, Chesapeake, Hampton, Portsmouth, Virginia Beach, Newport News and Williamsburg will receive six-packs and draft thanks to a partnership with Chesbay Distributing. Expect to see Fresh Squeezed IPA, Black Butte Porter, Mirror Pond Pale Ale, Red Chair Northwest Pale Ale, and the Deschutes Variety 12-pack arriving in early January 2016.

Additionally, expect an announcement next month from the Oregon based brewery, of a new year round offering to be launched in tandem with this new distribution partnership.

The announcement of this expanded distribution doesn’t come as much of a surprise, as earlier this year Deschutes announced the building of a new east coast brewery, located in Roanoke, Virginia.

Updated 11/16/2016

Deschutes Brewery (Bend, OR) began shipping to Washington D.C. and northern Virginia October 27th, 2014. A special collaboration with Chef José Andrés motivated the distribution expansion.

Stacy Denbow, expansion manager for the brewery, said, “Our fans on the east coast have been anxious to get our beers for quite some time, so we’re happy to finally extend our reach their way. Our Zarabanda collaboration with Chef José Andrés was the impetus for the growth, and we are looking forward to launching a few of our fan favorites in the region as well.”

At launch, D.C. and northern Virginia (Arlington & Alexandria) received Black Butte Porter, Mirror Pond Pale Ale and Fresh Squeezed IPA on draft only. Some of the brewery’s coveted Reserve Series bottles and kegs – like Mirror Mirror and Black Butte XXVI will make appearances.

Deschutes partnered with Premium Distributors of Virginia and Premium Distributors of Washington DC, both part of the Reyes Beverage Group.
