We recieve a lot of emails, tweets, Facebook posts, smoke signals, etc. from fans not in our 300 mile Dedicated Distribution Area asking when Schlafly Beer will be available for purchase in their neck of the woods. And almost always, with a heavy heart, I have to tell them that our capacity is currently maxed out at our two breweries and that there won’t be any major expansion to our distribution footprint in the near future.
That said, there have always been a number of areas within our 300 mile committed distribution radius that we have worked towards getting into and one of those areas is Little Rock, AR, and we’re excited to announce that beginning in early 2013, Schlafly Beer will be available throughout Pulaski County and the Little Rock area. Even better, if we receive the brand registrations from the State of Arkansas earlier, we are planning an introduction of draft beers on a limited basis before the end of 2012.
Golden Eagle of Arkansas will be our Wholesaler partner in Pulaski County. We have no immediate plans to appoint wholesalers in other parts of the State, but we do intend to make Schlafly Beer available throughout AR in the future. Stay tuned for more information and details on this exciting news as it’s available.
