Full Sail Brewing Co. partners with Mims Distributing Company for North Carolina distribution

BeerPulse - Thu, 09/22/2016 - 05:28

[Press Release:]

(Raleigh, NC) – Mims Distributing Company, a leading wholesale beverage distributor in North Carolina, announced its partnership with Full Sail Brewing Company. The award-winning brewery has won accolades at various championships, including the World Beer Championships, Great American Beer Festival, and the U.S. Open Beer Championships.

Based out of Hood River, Oregon, Full Sail opened in 1987, within the remnants of an old Diamond Fruit cannery. The brewery began using a manual bottling line, requiring each operation to be completed by hand. Though they no longer use a manual bottling system, they continue their personal touch by crafting their beers by hand, and 99 percent the brewery’s ingredients—barley, yeast, hops and water—come from local sources. Full Sail’s commitment to sustainability earned them recognition by SaveOnEnergy as one of the Green Breweries Across the United States, amongst several other sustainability awards.

Full Sail is committed to sustainability in all its pursuits, including their pledge to water conservation. The company uses less than three gallons of water per gallon of beer produced, compared to the average of six to eight gallons per gallon of beer. Their workweeks are compressed into four 10-hour workdays to reduce power and water consumption by 20 percent. Mims Distributing shares Full Sail’s passion for protecting the environment through their facility design. The distributing company’s two retention ponds, motion activated lighting, and solar panel systems—providing 38 percent of its facility’s power—allows the company to set the bar in sustainability practices.

“Bringing a little taste of Oregon brews to North Carolina is something we’re excited for here at Full Sail,” said Jim Brady, VP of Sales for Full Sail’s Brewing Company. “Mims Distributing Company is known for its superior service and dedication to its partners, and we’re joyed to welcome to the Full Sail’s family.”

Brewed in collaboration with the festival, the beer is based on a homebrew recipe of Charlie Papazian – GABF Founder and Past President of the Brewer’s Association.

“Back in 1982 when Charlie created the GABF, Boulder Beer toasted the occasion with a commemorative GABF ale,” said Boulder Beer President Jeff Brown. “Thirty-five years later we’ve teamed up with Charlie again, tapping into one his current homebrew recipes, an India Pale Lager.”

The GABF 35th Anniversary IPL has big citrus and tropical notes of mango, melon and lemongrass from the complex assortment of hop additions, with a slightly sweet malt flavor for balance. As a lager it also has a clean yeast profile providing a backdrop for the Citra and Equinox hops.

The IPL will be available in 22 oz bottles and on draft at select retailers throughout the Front Range in Colorado.

Massachusetts Brewers Guild elects new president, Night Shift Brewing’s Rob Burns

[Press Release:]

(Everett, MA) – Over the years, the Massachusetts craft beer scene has supported the growth of 100+ breweries and brewpubs throughout the state. With this growing popularity in craft beer, it has become critical that brewers have a collective voice advocating for and promoting their interests. This is where the Massachusetts Brewers Guild (MABG) comes in – a state-level organization that’s committed to protecting the rights of craft brewers. The MABG has been supporting the industry since 2007, and for six years, Rob Martin, founder of Ipswich Ale Brewery, has been leading the charge. Early last week, however, the Guild appointed Rob Burns, co-founder of Night Shift Brewing, as their new President.

In March 2015, after becoming inspired by the energy behind the Brewers Guilds in other states, Burns decided to add his voice and support to the Massachusetts chapter. Starting out vocal from the get-go, he quickly got involved in Government Affairs and found himself testifying at a State House committee in support of House Bill 245 – a petition for change to the archaic wholesale distribution laws. Over the past year, Burns has continued to increase his involvement in the Guild, most notably by heading up the hiring process of their new (and first) full-time Executive Director, who starts this fall.

With this new role, Burns will focus on “promoting the hell out of MA brewers” and aims to “make more people aware of all the great beer in the state, help start-up brewers make quality beer, and get more people in the industry hanging out together so we can build a tight-knit community.”

What will this mean for Night Shift Brewing? Burns will have to shift a lot of his focus away from the brewery, but ensures that the value added is huge. He asserts that, “helping other breweries, building relationships, and helping promote the state’s beer scene will benefit all including NSB.” With a solid team of 11 other board members, the Massachusetts Brewers Guild is in a great position to make 2017 an even better year for craft beer in MA.

(Aurora, CO) – Craft and import beer distributor C.R. Goodman of Colorado announced today that it will sell the assets of its distribution business to Breakthru Beverage of Colorado. C.R. Goodman began operating in Colorado in 2006 and has since grown into one of the top craft and import distributors in the state.

“With the changing landscape in Colorado we felt the timing was right to make this change for our suppliers, customers and employees,” explained Ken Goodman, owner, C.R. Goodman. “We chose our suitor carefully and know the Breakthru team will take the same passion and energy we’ve had for our brands to the next level.”

Breakthru Beverage Colorado, formerly Beverage Distributors Company, will look to add brewers such as Left Hand, Upslope, Stone, Dogfish Head, Firestone Walker, Boulevard, Bristol, Victory, Funkwerks, Odd 13 and several other key craft and import suppliers to their already strong portfolio of beer brands, which includes Odell, Avery, Great Divide, Denver Beer, Ska and Guinness.

“We have made many changes and added considerable resources to our organization over the years in an effort to be the distributor of choice for craft and imported beer sales in Colorado, and we are thrilled that C.R. Goodman has chosen us to carry on their legacy,” said Joe Marotta, President West Region, Breakthru Beverage.

C.R. Goodman’s success in Colorado has been extraordinary. The company sought a partner to purchase the company, who would maintain much of the core staff, be able to expand the reach for core brands and was 100% committed to the craft and import beer business.

Breakthru, the leading distributor in Colorado, met those requirements. The company was one of the first to embrace craft beer more than 25 years ago and has helped some of the top craft brewers gain a foothold in the dynamic Colorado market.

“Clearly in Colorado and across the country, craft beer remains one of the most dynamic categories in beverage alcohol,” said Danny Wirtz, Vice Chairman, Breakthru Beverage Group. “Expanding craft brewer relationships across the Breakthru footprint, while continuing to deliver superior results for our spirit and wine suppliers is vital to our strategy of offering greater value to our on premise and retail partners.”

About Breakthru Beverage Group
Breakthru Beverage was formed by joining the substantial holdings of The Charmer Sunbelt Group and Wirtz Beverage Group and is one of the nation’s leading wholesale distributors of wine, spirit and beer brands. In addition to Colorado, the company has operations across the US and Canada, employing more than 7,000 associates. For more information, visit www.BreakthruBev.com

Ska Autumnal Molé Stout and Euphoria Winter Pale Ale mark return of end-of-year seasonals

Ska Brewing Releases Seasonal Favorites

(Durango, CO) – Ska Brewing, one of Colorado’s oldest craft brewer’s, has been whipping up delicious beers for 21 years. Two iconic Ska offerings will reemerge in unison with the slightest hint of brisk weather: Autumnal Molé Stout and Euphoria Winter Pale Ale.

 

Brewed with cocoa nibs, spices and three varieties of chile peppers, the Autumnal Molé Stout is inspired by Ska’s southern Colorado location. The aroma hints at the Ancho, Guajillo and Hatch green chiles influenced by Mexican and New Mexican cuisine found in the region. Cinnamon, cumin, cloves and a subtle heat creates a complexity that is tied together by sweetness. This limited 5.8% release fall seasonal is available in 22oz bombers and on tap from September, until the last drop.

 

Brewed in strict accordance with do-it-yourself methodology, Euphoria Winter Pale Ale is the beer of choice for epic powder days. Ska paired with Venture Snowboards for a DIY-spirited project aptly named The Ska/Venture Venture. Crafted in the mighty San Juans, Ska brewed Euphoria while Venture constructed their high-performance Euphoria snowboards.

 

An après ski staple in Colorado, Euphoria is packaged in 12oz cans and has a big backbone of malt that provides enough alcohol to stay warm through the winter months. Plenty of caramel sweetness with a touch of chocolate and toast is accompanied by a big grapefruit hop aroma and flavor. A huge dry hop addition at the end of fermentation makes this beer shine. This seasonal clocks in at 6.2%.

 

”This is my favorite time of year,” says Kristen Muraro, Marketing Director at Ska Brewing. “These seasonal offerings signal the beginning of fall and the cooler weather to come.”

 
Mole’ Stout Release Party will be at Ska Brewing World HQ Thursday September 22nd at 5:00pm.  Live music from Gary Gorence and Sutherland Farms will be roasting green chilies.
 

The official Euphoria Release Party will be at Ska Brewing World HQ Friday September 30th at 5:00pm.  $3 pints of Euphoria and live music by the Great Contention.

 

About Ska BrewingBased in Durango, Colorado, Ska Brewing was founded in 1995 and produces over a dozen award-winning beers.  Pioneers in the canned craft beer movement Ska Brewing is known for an array of styles in 12-ounce cans including Modus Hoperandi, Mexican Logger, Euphoria and Pinstripe.  For information (a lot of it), music, and a good time, visit skabrewing.com.
