Great Divide Leaves Markets

Great Divide Brewing is growing, much like the rest of the beer community in the United States.  It’s a good thing! But….As we have seen recently with the Dogfish Head news, and acquisition of Goose Island by InBev, because you are growing, things get complicated.  It has surfaced over the past 24 hours that Great Divide Brewing will be leaving between 4-7 U.S. markets due to “growing pains”, and supply issues.

Great Divide Brewing will be leaving Delaware, Michigan, Rhode Island, Connecticut.  It was mentioned in various beer related tweets that Washington D.C. could also be affected.

According to a few beer stores in Delaware & Connecticut, Great Divide has already been scarce.

UPDATE (VIA Savannah Distributing) From Great Divide:
We are pulling out of MI, RI, DE and CT due to our exponentially increasing orders.  Additionally, we are pulling out of DC and southern and central VA. While we are excited to see this massive growth, we simply do not have the production capability to keep up with these orders. We appreciate the loyalty that our customers have shared with us in these states and hope to be back in the future.

  1. I’m glad that none of these breweries are leaving the Georgia market. Do you have any figures as to how strong the Georgia market is for craft brews?

    • Actually compiling that data now… especially in conjunction with a larger Georgia announcement…
