SAN DIEGO—Saint Archer Brewing Co. has formed a distribution partnership with Stone Distributing, a division of the North County San Diego-based Stone Brewing Co.
Saint Archer Brewing Co., set to launch in April, will be distributed exclusively by the premiere craft beer powerhouse Stone Distributing throughout Southern California. Saint Archer will be launching with a blonde Ale, a pale Ale, and an IPA. All three of these styles will be packaged in 12oz bottles, 22oz bottles, and kegs.
Stone Distributing’s 49 sales reps in the territory will be selling the Saint Archer line of beers to restaurants, bars, retailers, chain, and grocery stores. Assisting in this effort will be a Saint Archer sales team who will be coordinating sales strategies, events, festivals, and promotions.
“The decision to put the Saint Archer brand in the hands of Stone Distributing was an easy one. They are the best craft beer distributor in the business and understand what is required to properly penetrate and maintain the craft beer market,” said Josh Landan Saint Archer founder and president.
"Stone Distributing is thrilled to be working with Saint Archer Brewing Company. While there may be a number of new entrants in the craft beer world, it is rarer, in our experience, to find one with the fantastic beer, considerable talent and unique vision that Saint Archer possesses. We look forward to helping them achieve their ambitious goals!" stated Steve Wagner, co-founder and president of Stone Brewing Co.
