Anderson Valley Brewing Company has announced the launch of Alabama distribution in partnership with International Wines & Craft Beer. Beginning in May, distribution will spread statewide. Established in 1987 and often celebrated as one of the pioneers in craft brewing, Anderson Valley products will now be available Alabama.
“We’re looking forward to this partnership and building Anderson Valley’s brands in Alabama. From their world-class core and seasonal offerings to their Wild Turkey barrel-aged beers and hugely popular series of goses, their portfolio has something for everyone,” said Caroline Haugh, Craft Brand Development at International Wines & Craft Beer.
Trey White, President and Owner of Anderson Valley Brewing Company, had this to say about the new venture: “As the craft beer movement continues to grow, we’ve been keeping our eye open for opportunities to expand into regions with strong, craft-oriented wholesalers. Partnering with International just made sense; their knowledge of craft is exemplary and their dedication to building brands is impressive. We’re optimistic about what the future holds for us in Alabama.”
Anderson Valley Brewing Company was founded in 1987 in the town of Boonville, CA. In the beginning, they brewed out of a modest 10-barrel brewhouse located in the lower level of our original brewpub, The Buckhorn Saloon. At the time, they were one of only 20 craft breweries in the country and have long been considered one of the pioneers of the craft beer industry. Now, for over 25 years, Anderson Valley Brewing Company has been hand-crafting authentic ales and lagers with balance and complexity and a passion for sustainable brewing practices. Their large solar panel array provides over 40% of the brewery’s electrical needs, while 100% of their waste water is treated and used for the irrigation of their goat pastures and estate hop fields. In addition, their spent grain is given to local cows and spent hops are used as a natural fertilizer.
