Twisted Pine Expands Distribution Base
New Mexico the latest state to receive Twisted Pine ales
Boulder, Colorado – In recent years, residents of New Mexico have been refining their palates with an ever-increasing selection of craft beers. Greater demand for quality beer has helped to bolster the state’s own craft industry, as well as to open the door for distribution of product from other states. In August of 2011, New Mexicans will be treated to yet another option from their neighbors to the North. Twisted Pine Brewing Company out of Boulder, Colorado is excited to begin distributing their award-winning ales in the land of enchantment.
“The cultures in New Mexico and Colorado share so much. We’re very eager to extend our efforts to customers who will truly appreciate and enjoy them,” declares Jody Valenta, General Manager of Twisted Pine.
A little over a year and a half ago, few people outside the state of Colorado knew of Twisted Pine Brewing Company and the high-quality, hand-crafted beers produced there. Fewer still could brag of ever having tasted the skillfully brewed ales created by this small Boulder brewery. Since that time, Twisted Pine has plunged into the national craft beer picture, creating quite the ripple. New Mexico marks the seventh state in which the Twisted ales can now be found. Distribution of Twisted Pine products will be handled by L&F Distributors based out of Roswell. Beer-loving New Mexicans should start noticing at least a half-dozen varieties on the shelves between the middle and end of August.
Calle McCann, Sales Representative for the brewery and a former New Mexico resident herself, is especially enthusiastic about how one particular Twisted Pine offering will be received. “Our Billy’s Chilies will definitely find a lot of fans there,” predicts McCann.
A wheat ale infused with 5 different types of peppers, Billy’s Chilies certainly appears to be the perfect fit in a state that is world-renowned for its cultivation of green chile, one of the ingredients used to flavor the unique ale.
