This last Tuesday I met with Steve Wagner, President / Brewmaster of Stone Brewing Co. and signed a distribution agreement! I cannot express in words how excited and happy I am about this.
Stone is a great company, brewing excellent beers and distributing in Southern California for some of my favorite breweries such as Russian River, Avery, Port Brewing / Lost Abbey and Victory. Their portfolio is limited to very high quality craft beer brands. Their sales force is well educated about beer-- in fact, I'd say most of them are beer geeks. Picking up distribution for us is a testament to the quality of our beers and our future potential.
They distribute in San Diego, Orange, Los Angeles, San Bernardino and Riverside Counties, so you'll be able to find our beers all over Southern California within the next few weeks. Perhaps the best news is I won't have to deliver beer anymore!
Cheers to the great people of Stone!
