Figueroa Mountain Brewing Signs with Craft Beer Guild of LA
Buellton, CA – Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. has self-distributed their beer since they opened in November 2010. It wasn’t until October 2014 that they decided to entirely outsource their distribution. Previously FigMtnBrew had signed with Craft Beer Guild of San Diego in early 2012 and Pacific Beverage Company in November 2014. It was then that owners Jim and Jaime Dietenhofer and Sales Director Alex Jones began talks with Craft Beer Guild Los Angeles to distribute their beer in Southern California.
FigMtnBrew signed with Craft Beer Guild of Los Angeles this month and started their partnership on January 12, 2015. The distribution company will manage current and new Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. accounts throughout Los Angeles and Orange counties.
“Signing with Craft Beer Guild of Los Angeles allows us to consolidate our Southern California distribution footprint,” says Sales Director Alex Jones. “Craft Beer Guild was the clear choice for us in Southern California. Their knowledge and passion for craft beer is second to none.”
President Jaime Dietenhofer adds: “Craft Beer Guild’s parent company, L. Knife & Sons, based on the East Coast, is a well-respected distribution company operating for over a hundred years. That kind of experience and history is exactly what we look for when forming partnerships.”
