Amid an ever-changing landscape in the craft beer industry, Stone Brewing announced its triumphant presence in all 50 states, achieved while maintaining fierce independence alongside its distribution partners and steadfast fans. Stone beers will hit bars, restaurants and retailers throughout West Virginia beginning this week, completing Stone’s 50-state charge to bring its original “West Coast style” beers to hop lovers across the country.
“Our goal has always been to deliver bold and fresh, hop-forward beers to as many fans as possible and we’ve just conquered one major milestone in doing so,” says Dominic Engels, Stone Brewing CEO. “With so many options for high quality craft beer in every state, it’s an honor to see such a demand for our beers across the entire country. Now that we’re here, our commitment to fans nationwide is to remain truly independent and continue to deliver innovative and fresh Stone beers.”
Stone Brewing took on 2017 with aggressive expansion plans made possible by the addition of Stone Brewing—Richmond’s 250-barrel brewhouse. State distribution expanded in 2017 to include Oklahoma, South Dakota, North Dakota, Wyoming, Mississippi and culminating with West Virginia via Mountain State Beverage this week. In addition to all 50 states and Washington D.C., Stone Brewing now distributes to 35 countries and Puerto Rico.
Fans in The Mountain State are invited to attend events celebrating the official launch featuring an impressive lineup of hop-forward beers at locations throughout the state.
