Fireman’s Brew, a Los Angeles-based craft beer company founded by two California firefighters, has been spreading around the country as quickly as one of those California wildfires. The company just announced another couple distribution partnerships, these with N.H. Scheppers Distributing Co., Missouri Eagle LLC and County Distributing, all three of which are Anheuser-Busch distributors, to distribute throughout Missouri.
“It’s an honor to partner with County Distributing, Missouri Eagle and N.H. Sheppers — three prestigious Anheuser-Busch distributors — to launch our award-winning Fireman’s Brew beers in Missouri,” explained Roger Baer, chief executive officer of Fireman’s Brew. “We’re looking forward to growing our footprint here in this important market, as well as continuing to expand across the nation.”
In Missouri, Fireman’s Brew signature beers will be distributed in 12-ounce bottle six-packs, twelve-pack samplers and kegs including:
• Fireman’s Brew: Blonde (Pilsner-style Lager; 5 percent ABV)
• Fireman’s Brew: Brunette (German-style Doublebock; 8 percent ABV)
• Fireman’s Brew: Redhead (Amber Ale; 5.5 percent ABV)
As mentioned, this brand has been rapidly expanding from coast-to-coast since 2012. Fireman’s Brew is currently available in: California, Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, Oklahoma, Illinois, Ohio, Kansas, Virginia, Michigan, Hawaii, West Virginia, Louisiana, Minnesota, Utah and now Missouri.
Conceived by two Los Angeles-based firefighters after extinguishing a brushfire 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 fire lines. 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.
