“We at Standard Beverage are looking forward to launching Fireman’s Brew into Kansas,” commented Tyler Fayard, director of premium beer division at Standard Beverage. “With their three award-winning beers, inspirational brand story and firefighter community tie-in, Fireman’s Brew is a great fit for our growing craft beer portfolio.”

“We’re excited to be launching our beers throughout Ohio in a coordinated fashion with three of the state’s largest distributors,” said Rob Nowaczyk, founder of Fireman’s Brew. “Fireman’s Brew continues to receive a great response from consumers across the Midwest, and with the expansion into Ohio we are now one step closer towards achieving our goal of building Fireman’s Brew into a national brand.”

Conceived by two Los Angeles-based firefighters after extinguishing a brush fire in the local mountains, Fireman’s Brew grew out of their vision to create a premium line of handcrafted ales and lagers that would quench their thirsts after an exhausting day on the firelines. In addition, the company is committed to giving back to the firefighter community upon which it was founded by donating a portion of company proceeds to the National Fallen Firefighters Foundation — the nation’s leading non-profit organization dedicated to honoring fallen firefighters and providing assistance to their surviving families.
