(St. Louis, MO) – Anheuser-Busch today delivered a resounding vote of confidence in American brewing, announcing a major capital expenditure program across the country.

As America’s leading brewer, we will invest close to $500 million in 2017, and $2 billion through 2020 – among the largest ever capital investment programs in U.S. brewing history. Our 2017 investments include:

-Over $200 million for brewery and distribution projects

Today’s announcement is the next phase in a period of extensive, ongoing investment by Anheuser-Busch, with investments totaling $4.5 billion from 2011 to 2020.

The new capital expenditure program will expand Anheuser-Busch’s U.S. operations, bolster local and state economies, and support over 17,000 jobs in the United States. It will help drive forward the company’s growth strategy, including through new and innovative collaborations with companies like Teavana.

“Since Anheuser-Busch was founded 165 years ago, our company has been deeply rooted in America’s economic and cultural life. Our love of great beer and bringing people together is part of the American story,” said João Castro Neves, President and CEO of Anheuser-Busch. “We are making these investments in our business, and the communities where we live and work, for the next 165 years.”

“We are focusing on investments which empower our employees to do what they do best – brewing the best beer,” said Dave Taylor, Vice President of Supply for Anheuser-Busch. “Ninety-eight percent of the beer we sell in America is proudly made here at our 21 breweries using the highest quality ingredients.”

Key individual investments in the new capital expenditure program include:

-$82 million to enhance nationwide supply chain operations and to build new, state-of-the-art distribution facilities in Los Angeles and Columbus.

-$28 million at the Fort Collins brewery to expand production of popular aluminum bottle products and increase diversity of products through installation of dry hop capabilities.

-$18 million at the Williamsburg brewery on new technology and equipment to maintain quality, and to install new labeling machines.

-$15 million to begin innovative cross brewing capabilities at the Fairfield brewery through Elysian partnership, including significant updates to brewery infrastructure.

-$11 million to expand aluminum bottling capabilities at the Jacksonville brewery, as well as upgrades to improve energy efficiency.

-$11 million to begin innovative cross brewing capabilities at the Merrimack brewery alongside craft partners.

-$10 million in continued investments at the Los Angeles brewery to add water efficiency and treatment capabilities.

-$10 million to the Baldwinsville brewery to increase production of non-alcoholic product offerings, mainly Teavana, and to install a new multi-packer.

Switchback Brewing Co. now available in all New England states

BeerPulse - Sun, 05/14/2017 - 11:45

[Press Release:]

(Burlington, VT) – Switchback Brewing Company, Vermont’s first 100% employee-owned brewery, is excited to announce their beers are now available in all New England States. This came to fruition by completing distribution throughout the state of Massachusetts and starting distribution in the state of Connecticut.

On May 1st Switchback Ale became available in Boston and Cape Cod through a distribution partnership with Horizon Beverage. In addition, Switchback expanded into western and northern Massachusetts with Girardi Distributors of Pittsfield and Athol, completing coverage in the full footprint of Massachusetts. On May 8th Switchback Brewing Co added distribution throughout the western part of Connecticut, in Litchfield, New Haven, and Fairfield counties via partnerships with Star Distributors and A. Gallo & Company. The rollout into the new markets will begin with the flagship Switchback Ale, available on draught as well as the unique 12 oz stubby bottles in package stores.

Additions to the fermentation cellar at Switchback Brewing Co. enable the brewery to keep up with the demand in New England and upstate New York. Switchback Ale is brewed using an original 1964 copper brewhouse from the Brauerei Schmucker in Germany. Like all Switchback beers, Switchback Ale is left unfiltered and 100% naturally carbonated.

Many people in Massachusetts and Connecticut have been insisting for years that Switchback be distributed throughout their states. The brewery is delighted to achieve the goal of becoming readily available in all New England states.

About Switchback Brewing Company
Switchback Brewing Company was founded in 2002 by master brewer Bill Cherry and his longtime friend Jeff Neiblum. To maximize complexity and flavor the beer is left unfiltered and carbonated during fermentation by the yeast itself, creating a 100% naturally conditioned beer. The result is a beer that defies easy description, because it is brewed to a flavor idea and not based on any existing style guidelines. Switchback’s flagship beer, Switchback Ale-the number one selling draught beer in Vermont- along with Citra-Pils Keller Bier and Connector IPA are brewed year-round. Switchback’s Rotating Specials include Extra Pale Ale, Märzen Fest Bier, Roasted Red Ale, Dooley’s Belated Porter, Slow-Fermented Brown Ale, and SwitchBOCK Keller Bier. In February, 2017, Switchback Brewing Co. officially became the first 100% employee-owned brewery in Vermont via an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). The move keeps the brewery locally owned and operated, still at its original home in the South End of Burlington, VT. Switchback beers are distributed in Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut.

Jersey Cider Works’ Ironbound Summer Cider makes debut

BeerPulse - Sun, 05/14/2017 - 11:23

[Press Release:]

Available At NJ Retail Stores Statewide & On Tap Wherever Alcoholic Craft Beverages Are Sold

Made From 100% Fresh-Pressed Apples, Blended with Iced Tea & Fresh-Squeezed Lemons

(Hunterdon County, NJ) – Inspired by summers down the shore, Jersey Cider Works has announced the release of Ironbound Summer Cider, a blend of the cidery’s popular Ironbound Hard Cider with iced tea and fresh-squeezed lemons. Charles Rosen, founder of Jersey Cider Works, made the announcement today.

Ironbound Summer Cider will be available on a limited basis, from Memorial Day to Labor Day, at retail stores statewide in six-packs of 12oz cans ($10.99) and also on tap wherever craft beverages are sold. At 4.2% alcohol and with a bright apple flavor, a hint of black tea and a citrus finish, Ironbound Summer Cider is perfect for sipping at the shore all day long or during any of your other favorite summer pastimes.

“Fresh-made black tea, fresh-squeezed lemon juice, local fresh-pressed apple cider, no preservatives (no added sulfites no sorbates), and no added sugar makes for a thirst quenching day at the beach,” said Cameron Stark, cider maker and partner at Jersey Cider Works. “I have done personal research that proves Ironbound Summer Cider enhances the gardening experience, making a great reward for mowing the lawn and improving one’s ability to throw water balloons – at least initially.”

Ironbound Summer Cider is the second retail product released by Jersey Cider Works. In June 2016, the company debuted its Ironbound Hard Cider, made from fresh-pressed apples sourced from orchards in New Jersey and neighboring states.

Both ciders are produced at the 108-acre Hunterdon County farm shared by Jersey Cider Works and its sister company, New Ark Farms, which employs chronically underemployed members of the Greater Newark community including the formerly incarcerated.

New Jersey has a long history of cider making, especially in Newark where cider was one of the city’s first industries. Celebrated throughout the 18th and 19th centuries, Newark cider was considered by many, including George Washington, to be one of the finest in America.

About Jersey Cider Works
Jersey Cider Works is a social enterprise founded by Montclair entrepreneur, Charles Rosen. Jersey Cider Works and its sister company, New Ark Farms, are committed to the revitalization of the Greater Newark economy by focusing on job-creation for the community’s chronically underemployed. On the 108-acre farm that they share in northern Hunterdon County (360 County Road 579, Asbury, NJ), New Ark Farms is managing the company’s heritage cider orchards using regenerative practices to graft, plant, and maintain ten thousand 18th century heritage apple trees – varieties that originated over 250 years ago in and around Newark. In the coming years, Jersey Cider Works will use these apples to make its own versions of heritage Newark Cider. Through these efforts, Jersey Cider Works aims to restore hard cider to its rightful place as New Jersey’s beverage of choice and to craft ciders that would make our Founding Fathers proud.
