(Juneau, AK)- Beer drinkers in New Mexico will soon enjoy brews from the Last Frontier when Alaskan Brewing brings their bottled “taste of Alaska” to the Land of Enchantment this September. Alaskan Brewing Co. is partnering with Premier Distributing to bring their award-winning beers to market throughout the state.
“Alaskan’s line up of award-winning beers has been requested by retailers and consumers in New Mexico for some time,” says Mike Breidenbach of Premier Distributing. “We are thrilled to be able to distribute this unique portfolio of beers across the state.”
Founded by Geoff and Marcy Larson in 1986, Alaskan has been brewing and bottling award-winning beers that reflect their home in Juneau, Alaska for more than 25 years. The brewery researched the move into New Mexico for several years, and is already distributed in neighboring states Colorado, Arizona and Texas. New Mexico will be the 15th state to serve Alaskan Brewing products.
“We have been wanting to make the move into New Mexico for a number of years, and since we have had such a great reaction in Arizona, Texas, and Colorado, it seems like a natural fit,” says Alaskan Brewing Co-founder, Marcy Larson. “We are truly excited to have such an extensive reach of our coverage of the Southwest with our Alaskan lineup of brews.”
