Boulevard Brewing Announces 2016 Expansion Plans
KC brewery to add six new states and additional New York markets
October 19, 2015 – Kansas City – Following a busy 2015, Boulevard Brewing Company continues to grow its territory, announcing that several states will be added to the Kansas City brewery’s distribution map in the coming months. Agreements have been signed with Arizona beer distributor Hensley Beverage Company and Kentucky wholesaler Beer House Distributors. These distributors will start rolling out the full portfolio of Boulevard beers in January.
“With the addition of six new 1,000-barrel fermentation tanks, plans to expand our distribution territory can become a reality,” said Bobby Dykstra, Vice President of sales for Duvel Moortgat USA. “There has been a strong and persistent demand for Boulevard beers in Arizona for quite some time and Kentucky is seeing an explosion of craft beer excitement. We’re thrilled to bring the taste of the Midwest to these states.”
Craft beer fans in Michigan, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Albany, New York and parts of upstate New York as well as Delaware will also be able to find select Boulevard beers on taps and shelves in early 2016. Distributor agreements are still in the works. The brewery will publish details on launch events in all of these markets on their website and social media outlets as they are finalized in the weeks and months to come.
