Karl Strauss Distributing, the distribution arm of Karl Strauss Brewing Co., is expanding to welcome Duck Foot Brewing Co. into its family of brands. Duck Foot will now be available at more retailers, bars and restaurants in southern California.
“We’re teaming up with a brand that has been in the industry, knows the business really well and has such an amazing reputation. We feel blessed to be partnering with Karl, and to be working with such an awesome team that Karl has created. We’re really excited to go forward and see what we can do together,” said Matt DelVecchio, head quack (CEO and sales manager) at Duck Foot Brewing Co.
Both breweries are thrilled to introduce more fans to Duck Foot’s beers. Since opening their doors in 2015, the Miramar-based brewery has become highly regarded for their quality ales, brand approachability and fun irreverence. What’s more, they remain the only brewery in San Diego to produce 100 percent gluten reduced beers, which are tested by a third-party lab to be at Celiac safe levels.
“Having a brand that is this iconic, this cool, and that we can scale across Southern California is something that is really important to us. We want to take the distribution model back to what made craft beer distributing interesting and fun, and that is: educating people, showing them there’s a better way, and teaching them about unique beers they may not have tried yet,” said Chad Heath, senior director of sales and logistics and VP of marketing for Karl Strauss Brewing Co.
