Creature Comforts Imperial Trop Haze

Athens, Georgia-based Creature Comforts is expanding distribution out of Georgia for the first time. Tropicalia IPA will be spending some time at the beach in Charleston, South Carolina starting in mid-May.


Creature has signed on with Lee Distributors, part of Reyes Beer Division, which is the largest beer distributor in the U.S. Six beers from the brewery’s year-round lineup, including Tropicália, Automatic, Athena, Tritonia, Bibo Pilsner and Cosmik Debris.

Eleven seasonal beers will also be available, including six Hazy IPAs, Athena Paradiso varieties, and Koko Buni.

“This decision was a long time in the making. We’ve always been fans of Charleston’s hospitality and culinary scene, and since we already distribute to coastal Georgia, it felt like the right step as we begin distributing outside of Georgia for the first time.” – Creature Comforts CEO Chris Herron

Charleston and Hilton Head areas can expect the first tapping of Creature Comforts starting in mid-May. Launch events will be announced soon.

Creature Comforts turns 7 this year.

Hi-Wire Brewing adds Indiana distribution

Hi Wire Brewing Indiana Distribution

Asheville, North Carolina based Hi-Wire Brewing adds Indiana distribution this month. The brewery has signed with Craftroads Beverage.

Hi-Wire’s co-founder Chris Frosaker is a mid-westerner, who always had Indiana in his distribution plans.

As a craft only wholesaler, the partnership with Craftroads follows Hi-Wire’s last several market launches with statewide, independent wholesalers who only focus on high-end craft beer. In fact, the collaboration was born from great relationships formed between Hi-Wire and distributors in nearby states, which led Craftroads Beverage to start the conversation about branching out into Indiana. – Chris Frosaker

Beer drinkers in the Hoosier State will see Hi-Wire’s full lineup of flagships, seasonals, and specialty releases throughout the year.

The first shipment will hit shelves mid-October.

Additionally, select beers from the Embrace the Funk, the brewery’s sour and wild series will appear throughout the year.

Monday Night Brewing adds Memphis distribution

Atlanta based Monday Night Brewing is adding distribution to Memphis, Tennessee. The brewery has signed a distribution deal with A.S. Barbaro.

In 2018, the brewery added Chattanooga, Nashville, and Knoxville distribution and found a great fan reception.

“We were pleasantly surprised by the reaction we got in Tennessee when we expanded to Chattanooga, Nashville, and Knoxville last year. So we knew that we wanted to also come to Memphis and the rest of West Tennessee. But we also wanted to make sure that we could keep up with the demand of our other markets. After purchasing some new equipment and adding more staff, we’re confident we can handle the additional load.”  – ”  Monday Night Brewing CEO and co-founder Jeff Heck

Memphis drinkers can expect Monday Night’s core and seasonal releases starting in May 2019.
