(Amherst, WI) – We are extremely delighted to inform you that Central Waters Brewery and Bella Vista Beer Distributors have inked a distribution deal to handle eastern Pennsylvania, regarding all Central Waters beers in its portfolio.
Having been courting Paul and Anello for a few years now, it makes us giddy to be able to have better access to Central Waters Beers in PA. We at Bella Vista have an affinity towards well made craft beer from the Midwest. We consider ourselves the pros when it comes to being able to find the gems between the coasts. With Central Waters this now makes four Wisconsin Craft breweries to our stellar portfolio, and all of them offer completely unique experiences when it comes down to the liquid in the bottle.
Central Waters is most known for its infused stouts and barrel program, however their core line up of beers are nothing short of outstanding. Glacial Trail IPA, Mud Puppy Porter, and Satin Solstice Imperial Stout are some of the perennial favorites that should not be passed up!
This relationship between an independent craft brewer, and an independent craft only wholesaler shows that business can still be conducted via a personal handshake and lends an personal touch when beer is distributed across state lines. We share the same mindset and goals as well as the most important belief: Getting great beer to market at a low or no cost to the planet. Look for a roll out beginning early December, with a slew of labels coming into market. We hope you get a chance to enjoy what we have been been smuggling into our luggage for years for our personal consumption.
About Central Waters Brewery
In 1996, two friends, Mike McElwain and Jerome Ebel, bought an old brick building on Highway 10 in Junction City, Wisconsin. The building, built around 1920, was originally a Model-A Ford dealership. Within a few months of the first beer production, Paul Graham was hired to help Jerome and Mike so that they could maintain their full-time jobs. The partners’ start up was part of a national trend toward producing bigger and better beers at the small, local level. In early 2006, Clint Schultz left the brewery to pursue other interests. The brewery is now owned and operated by Paul Graham and Anello Mollica, who bring over 24 years of brewing experience into the company. Currently, Central Waters Brewing Company has expanded its product line to include 18 beer styles. http://www.centralwaters.com/
