Stony Creek Brewery Expands Distribution to Massachusetts
(BRANFORD, CT) – Stony Creek Brewery is pleased to announce plans to expand distribution into Massachusetts. The Connecticut based brewery will be available in greater Boston and shoreline MA in March via Horizon Beverage. Full statewide coverage will commence in April through the addition of Quality Beverage, Williams Distributing and Girardi Distributors.
“Building on our success in Connecticut and Rhode Island, we feel Massachusetts, with its national recognition as a Craft centric market, is the next obvious choice for our brands,” says Edward J Crowley Jr., President of Stony Creek Brewery. “This superior network of wholesalers will ensure delivery of our aggressively laid back beers with the highest level of execution and service, both to the retailers and restauranteurs throughout the state, as well as the thirsty people of Massachusetts.”
Stony Creek Brewery opened its new facility in March 2015 and is just now completing a major expansion to bring total capacity up to 45,000 barrels per year. They are a small, experienced team with big ambitions for New England craft beer. Stony Creek makes progressive craft beers that are both familiar and surprising. Their beers are described as high quality and experimental, brews that always eclipse expectations. “We call them, Aggressively Laid Back Beers for their bold flavor, yet surprising balance and drinkability” says Crowley. Situated on the Branford River, Stony Creek Brewery’s waterfront taproom was built so their customers are close to the action and can share in the zeal and sense of community throughout.
“Stony Creek is truly a culmination of several years of hard work, dedication, and passion for great craft beer. It has an inspired culture that is embraced and embodied by everyone in the organization”, Gregg Quadrini, Horizon’s President of Beer, said in a statement. “We have all been very impressed with what Stony Creek has accomplished, and we are proud to be chosen as their distributor partner in Massachusetts.”
Stony Creek Brewery, LLC, is a member of both the Brewers Association and the Connecticut Craft Beer Guild and is distributed through Dichello Distributors, Inc., Hartford Distributors, Inc., Levine Distributing, Inc., Rhode Island Distributing and now Horizon Beverage, Quality Beverage, Williams Distributing and Girardi Distributors.
