SweetWater Brewing Co. is ready to make a move westward with the announcement it will open up distribution to Memphis, Tenn., at the end of the month. Shortly after the brewery’s $19 million expansion, SweetWater — ranked as one of the nation’s top 20 craft breweries according to the Brewer’s Association — will be bringing its lip-smackin’ lineup to the Memphis area on June 16.
Through diligent planning and wholesaler assignments, SweetWater proudly announces it will be working with Budweiser of Memphis to begin flowing in the market. While SweetWater has been available in Eastern parts of the state since 2005, Memphis will round out distribution statewide for thirsty locals. The brewery’s current footprint covers the Southeastern United States including Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Tennessee, North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, Louisiana and Virginia.
“We’ve had our hands full expanding the brewery while simultaneously launching our new can line and conditioning process,” said SweetWater Founder and Big Kahuna Freddy Bensch. “With that under our belts, we’re finally at a place where we feel we’ve ramped up production enough to move further West and bring Memphibians the brews they’ve been training for!”
