“Initially our distribution in South Carolina will be limited to the Fort Mill, Rock Hill and Columbia markets,” said Todd Ford, owner and brewery manager of NoDa Brewing. “This is a logical distribution move for NoDa Brewing as we focus on new markets with growing craft beer demand near our home base in Charlotte. We are extremely excited with this move and the new markets it will open up.”
NoDa Brewing’s signature IPA, Hop, Drop ‘n Roll, made its South Carolina debut at the Strawberry Festival in Fort Mill. In addition to Hop, Drop ‘n Roll, look for Ramble on Red and 2012 Great American Beer Festival (GABF) silver medal winner Coco Loco around Fort Mill, Rock Hill and Columbia later in this month.
“Comer Distributing Co. is very proud and excited to introduce the fine brands of NoDa Brewing Co. to our customers in South Carolina,” said Chip Comer, vice president of Comer Distributing based in Rock Hill, S.C. “NoDa Brewing is a great example of local artisans with a driving passion for doing what they love, brewing craft beer. Todd and Suzie Ford are just like people we all know — Americans who have a dream, take a risk, and build something from the ground up, just as our country was built. To have this opportunity and bring these great Charlotte brews with their unique story to our local customers is an overwhelming feeling.”
NoDa Brewing currently has five year-round beers and multiple seasonal offerings available on-tap at local bars, restaurants and the brewery tap room.
