Bell’s Brewery Inc. has begun the process to bring its beer to three new states in 2016. Bell’s beer will head to the great states of Mississippi, Louisiana and Arkansas next year, filling in Bell’s southeastern footprint. As this process has just begun, no specific launch dates or other details have been finalized.
“We start with making sure we have the right people in any new state, then start looking for a distributor that believes in and follows the same standards of quality that we maintain,” said Laura Bell, Bell’s Vice President. “It’s about having the right partner(s). It will take a little time, this is a long-term relationship, and we want to make sure we follow our due diligence.”
Construction at Bell’s Comstock Brewery is ongoing with new packaging equipment and fermenters recently being delivered. Bell’s most recent expansion is not expected to be completed until the spring and summer.
The search for a Lead Brewery Sales Representative based in New Orleans, Louisiana has also begun.
Bell’s Brewery employs more than 450 people over a 23 state area, in addition to Puerto Rico and Washington D.C.
