FORT COLLINS, CO – July 15, 2013 – New Belgium Brewing has signed an agreement with N.K.S. Distributors, which is part of the ABI network, to serve as the brewery’s distribution partner in Delaware. New Belgium will start selling beer in the state August 19, 2013 and will roll 22-oz. package of some of its core brands first – Fat Tire, Ranger IPA, Rampant Imperial IPA and Trippel – along with two Lips of Faith offerings and Shift 12-pack cans. Draft and 12-oz. package will follow in mid October.
“This will mark our 33rd state of distribution, once Florida opens up later this month, and it’s exciting for us to be inching our way into more and more areas in the Northeast,” said New Belgium Brewing Sales Co-Pilot, Brian Krueger. “We definitely look forward to having a New Belgium beer with our friends in The First State.”
New Belgium also opened Alaska and Louisiana earlier this year. For more information on New Belgium, visit www.newbelgium.com.
