C Squared Ciders, a Colorado craft cidery announced today that they have entered into an exclusive distribution agreement with Crooked Stave Artisans Distributing (CSA). The locally owned and operated, craft beer-centric distributor began selling and distributing C Squared Ciders brands outside of the Denver Metro area in November, 2016. Starting February 6th, CSA begins selling and delivering all C Squared Ciders brands in bottles and draft, to the entire state of Colorado. Up until this point, C Squared Ciders self-distributed their award winning Siren Series Brands (Alma, Nona, Ginger, Ella, and Lila) only in Colorado’s Front Range, and select mountain accounts.
Co-owner and Cider Maker, Charles ‘Andy’ Brown, left a decorated craft-brewing career to found C Squared Ciders in 2015. C Squared Ciders saw exponential sales in 2016, and is now one of Colorado’s top cider producers.
In regards to the recent partnership, Brown said, “After speaking with various distributors, we knew CSA was the perfect fit for C Squared Ciders because of our shared values of independence, progressive thinking, and aspiration to bring our artisanal ciders to the good people of Colorado.”
CSA’s motto is “Artisans Distributing Artisans,” which is precisely what they have done in Colorado since 2013. Having recently expanded their sales force to eleven sales reps across the state, they are dedicated to growing C Squared Ciders home state market share. C Squared Ciders will more than double their production capacity over the next month to meet the statewide demand brought on by CSA.
“It is great to work with a fellow fast growing company that gets it. This synergy allows us to focus on production and quality, while meeting the demand of our wonderful fans all over Colorado,” added Brown.
