T.W. Pitchers’ Brewing Company Expanding

SF-Based Craft Shandy Company Now Selling In South Carolina, Sacramento

San Francisco, CA, October 26, 2015 – Put your tray tables up and your seat in the full upright position, because it is time to rack up the frequent flyer miles. T.W. Pitchers’ Brewing Company is proud to announce partnerships with two new distributors – Mussetter Distributing covering the Sacramento, CA region, and Lee Distributors based in the Charleston, South Carolina area.

“We are extremely excited to begin our partnership with these two amazing distributors,” says Wilson Barr, co-founder of T.W. Pitchers’. “Both have phenomenal reputations in the industry, and we think our brand will be a great fit in their respective portfolios.”

Based in San Francisco, T.W. Pitchers’ Brewing Company was founded by Barr and Tommy Hester in the Summer of 2013 with the goal of becoming the first true craft shandy company in the United States. They launched with their first drink Snake Bite, an apple cider shandy, and are soon debuting their second drink, a grapefruit and blood orange Radler. Barr and Hester believe they’ll continue to find success with their brands as they branch out to new markets.

“Mussetter in Sacramento was such a great fit, being an award winning distributor so close to our original market of San Francisco,” explains Hester. “As part of the Reyes Beverage Group, Lee Distirbutors in South Carolina is a bit larger, but we had a great connection with them, and we couldn’t wait to jump on the opportunity to enter an exciting new region.”

“Plus,” adds Barr, “given the light, refreshing profile of our beers, we think the Southeast will be a particularly strong fit.” The company will start by selling kegged product in South Carolina, with their lineup of cans entering the market later this year.

The duo wouldn’t share specific details of their next distribution addition, but they are clearly excited for the future.

“As a small company, we look at expansion on a case-by-case basis to make sure our distributors fit our goals and align with what we’re aiming to do,” says Hester. “That being said, we’ve got a good thing going, and we are excited to keep expanding so people everywhere can see what a true craft shandy tastes like.”
