Houston’s thriving craft beer scene is about to get a little sweeter.
Sweetwater Brewing Company, the Atlanta- based craft beer business that ranks among the twenty largest craft breweries in the United States, is expanding to Houston and San Antonio. Draft and bottled Sweetwater beer will begin showing up in stores, restaurants, and bars in both cities starting Monday, February 23, 2015 through a partnership with Silver Eagle Distributors.
Sweetwater Brewing V.P. of Sales Dave Guender is excited about the prospects and continued westward expansion of the Sweetwater brand.
“We couldn’t be happier to finally land in Texas,” said Guender. “Positioning ourselves to make the move westward was thrilling but also involved months of meticulous planning and market research. We’re confident that our partnership with Silver Eagle will help us make the best splash possible in these new Texas markets.”
Silver Eagle President and CEO John L. Nau III is equally optimistic about the newly formed partnership.
“Silver Eagle Distributors is thrilled to be partnering with SweetWater to bring a robust line-up of quality beers into the Houston and San Antonio markets,” says Nau. “The brewer’s line-up of flavor profiles will have every Texan in our markets finding something just right for his or her taste buds. In addition to the great beer that will be flowing soon, we admire SweetWater for its passion and service to the community and look forward to working with its team on many great endeavors in the future.”
Sweetwater Brewing’s portfolio is large and growing but for the initial Texas offering, the brewery will distribute these popular Sweetwater varieties:
- Sweetwater 420 Extra Pale Ale
- Sweetwater IPA
- Sweetwater Blue
- Take Two Pils
Each of the above will be available in 6- packs and on draft. Sweetwater 420 Extra Pale Ale and IPA will both be offered in 12- packs in addition to 6- packs and draft.
Craft beer fans can meet members of the Sweetwater team and sample beer at one of the many special launch events planned over the week of February 23, 2015 through February 27, 2015 in both Houston and San Antonio.
