Knee Deep Brewing Co. of Auburn, Calif., is now actively selling in the state of Florida. This is the fourth state Knee Deep has signed with in the last three months, and the brewery plans on signing with at least 10 more by year’s end.
“We are pleased to announce the partnership with Crafty Connoisseurs Distributing who will be selling Knee Deep in the South Eastern region of Florida,” said Andrew Moore, sales manager of Knee Deep. “Crafty is a smaller family run wholesaler with a very similar business model to ours, and being that we are a family-run brewery we would be honored to be represented by a company who cares for the smaller brand. Florida has been on our radar for a few years now, and we are extremely excited to be launching out there.”
“We could not be more excited to partner up with such an outstanding brewery like Knee Deep,” said Jonathan Myer, sales manager of Crafty Connoisseurs. “Their attention to producing only high-quality beers mirrors our companies philosophy of doing business. Look for their beers to start hitting your favorite craft beer store as well as on tap at select locations starting March 1st. Also be on the look out for tap takeovers, pint nights and in-store tastings to educate Florida consumers on these amazing beers.”
Knee Deep Brewing Co. began brewing in 2010, moved to their current brewery in Auburn in late 2013 and brewed the first Auburn beer in January 2014. Knee Deep continues to grow its distribution network, actively selling in 16 states and internationally. Knee Deep currently produces 14 different beers on a regular basis but is most commonly know for the multiple award winners Breaking Bud IPA, Hoptologist and Lupulin River DIPA and Simtra Triple IPA.
