Four states down, forty- six states to go for the good guys and gals at Houston’s Saint Arnold Brewery.
Saint Arnold, the largest and oldest craft brewery in the state of Texas, has signed distribution agreements with Florida businesses and in a short time, its beers will appear in restaurants and taverns along Florida’s Gulf Coast. The addition of Florida brings the total states selling Saint Arnold beer to four.
"We've been serving beer enthusiasts along the Gulf Coast for nearly 20 years – first in Texas and for the past three years in Louisiana – and we think we'll fit right into the markets along Florida's Gulf Coast," said Saint Arnold Founder/Brewer Brock Wagner.
Handling the new Saint Arnold account will be several prominent Florida distributors, among them Coastal Beverage Ltd., Gold Coast Eagle Distributing, Great Bay Distributors, Lewis Bear Company, Peace River Distributing, Pepin Distributing Company, Suncoast Beverage Sales, and Tri Eagle Sales. With this many accounts in place, Saint Arnold beers will eventually make their way down the majority of Florida’s Gulf coast.
Craft beer fans will first find Saint Arnold beer in restaurants and pubs. Distribution to retail stores, in bottled form, will take a little longer. But the six packs will show up in retail outlets over the next several months.
Saint Arnold plans to distribute its Fancy Lawnmower, Elissa IPA, and Christmas Ale first. Other Saint Arnold products will make their way to Florida in due time. Check with local taverns, restaurants, store, etc., or visit the Saint Arnold web site or Facebook page for more information.
