DESTIHL Brewery Expands Distribution to North Carolina Via Mutual Distributing
(Raleigh, NC) – Mutual Distributing Company announced today that it has added DESTIHL Brewery to its statewide beer portfolio. DESTIHL® is based in Bloomington, Illinois.
“We are extremely excited about the addition of DESTIHL to our portfolio,” said Michael Hayek, Statewide Beer Division Manager of Mutual Distributing. “In a few short years, DESTIHL has earned multiple awards, including Great American Beer Festival® (GABF) medals and Best of Show at the 2015 National Wood-Aged Beer Competition held at the Festival of Barrel Aged Beers (FOBAB) in Chicago, and has quickly become known for their year-round Wild Sour Series in cans. We look forward to boycotting bland together in North Carolina!”
In February, DESTIHL announced plans to build a new $14 million production facility in Normal, Illinois. “Building the new production brewery is making it possible to move forward with our long-anticipated partnership with Mutual Distributing”, said DESTIHL’s Founder and CEO, Matt Potts. “We are thrilled about this exciting opportunity for DESTIHL beers to be available in an awesome craft beer state while working alongside such a great distribution partner who has demonstrated an immense and steadfast passion for our brewery’s wide array of unique beers.”
“We’ve been fans of DESTIHL for a while now, and based on the long lines we have seen for their beers at national festivals, we are not the only ones,” said Scott Cash, VP of Sales for Mutual.
DESTIHL will begin distributing in the North Carolina market this May with launch events planned across the state.
