The Frank Beverage Group, parent company to Frank Beer Distributors, Beer Capitol Distributing, is scheduled to acquire beer wholesaler Ott Schweitzer Distributing based in Milton, Wisc. This acquisition is expected to close Dec. 31, 2020.
“Ott Schweitzer Distributing is a remarkable organization. We believe this acquisition will have significant positive benefits for all employees, suppliers, and retail partners. We intend to employ the majority of current Ott Schweitzer Distributing employees and continue to operate out of the Milton warehouse,” says Mike Frank, President of Frank Beer Distributors.

“We are fully committed to making this transition as seamless as possible for employees and customers alike,” says David Neville, President of Beer Capitol Distributing. “The acquisition connects our current territories, adds to our capacity and strengthens our distributing network while continuing to offer the highest quality services and products.”
