San Diego’s AleSmith Brewing Co. has signed agreements to distribute its craft beers in Minnesota and Virginia.
Officials of the Miramar-headquartered company said its beers are now being distributed by Clear River Beverage Co. in Minnesota, and by Specialty Beverage in Virginia. Financial and other details of the long-term distribution deals were not disclosed.
AleSmith styles including Speedway Stout, AleSmith IPA and Nut Brown Ale are now available in both states.
AleSmith was founded in 1995 and is led by current owner and CEO Peter Zien. The company will soon open a new 105,500-square-foot brewery in Miramar, featuring an 80-barrel brew system and larger tasting room in a leased building being renovated on AleSmith Court, formerly Empire Street.
