TW Pitchers' Snake Bite Is Going International

San Francisco-based Lager and Cider Blend Now Available in Taiwan

San Francisco, CA, March 19, 2015 – I hope you brought your passport, because we’re flying international. T.W. Pitchers’ Brewing Company is excited to announce that Snake Bite® is now available for sale in Taiwan. Snake Bite will be distributed by Taihu Brewing Ltd. and will be sold in bars and stores predominately in the Taipei Area.

“We are thrilled to join up with Taihu Brewing Ltd. to bring Snake Bite over to Taiwan,” says Wilson Barr, co-founder of T.W. Pitchers’ Brewing Company. “This was kind of an opportunity that came out of left field for us, but one that we were happy to jump on and explore.”

Launched in the summer of 2013, Snake Bite is a refreshing blend of lager and crisp apple cider based on a popular British pub-mixed favorite. It's similar in taste to a traditional hard cider, but not as sweet. Upon drinking, full-bodied apples hit the pallet first, followed by subtle malt characteristics that provide a clean finish. Snake Bite is currently distributed in eight counties around the San Francisco Bay Area and can be found in Whole Foods, Cost Plus World Market, Mollie Stone’s Market, and Oliver’s Market among other accounts.

“We are excited to tap into a completely different market with the addition of Taiwan,” says Tommy Hester, co-founder with Barr. “Response from Northern California customers has been extremely positive, and we think that we can augment our American growth overseas.”

“Plus,” jokes Barr, “a business trip or two to Taiwan sounds pretty good to us.”
