Great Lakes Brewing Co. announced plans to expand distribution throughout Pennsylvania. The Cleveland brewery will enter northeast Pennsylvania with LT Verrastro Inc. on March 31, and will enter the north central portion of the state with Durdach Brothers Inc. on April 7.
The distribution company, Grapes and Greens, for the past six months has added beer to its core business model, adding to the vineyards and produce farmers it currently services. Starting last week, the company began distributing Port Jefferson Brewing Company beer to the five boroughs. The deal allows the brewery, which previously self-distributed its product, to have more face time with customers and put the focus back on making beer, owner Mike Philbrick said.
Railhouse Brewery in Aberdeen is planning to expand craft beer distribution to Georgia and Virginia by July, thanks to sales growth of 216 percent in 2013 over 2012. “We are thrilled with the tremendous growth we have witnessed over the past year and are excited to see Railhouse in the hands of so many customers throughout North and South Carolina,” says Brian Evitts, co-owner and brewmaster. “Our continued expansion has been carefully planned, but we have exceeded our own expectations.”
