(Stratford, CT) – Two Roads Brewing Company of Stratford, CT announced today that the brand will be rolling into the state of Maine and they are pleased to be teaming up with Nappi Distributors and Pine State Traders. The launch will begin the week of October 19th with a series of kick-off events throughout the state. Maine is now the eighth state to distribute the Two Roads brand.
Two Roads Region and New Market Manager Meghan Zachry remarked, “We are very excited to partner with Pine State Trading and Nappi Distributors to bring our beers to the Maine market. These are two great companies with a proven ability to grow brands in their respective territories. Maine has a dynamic craft beer culture and we are looking forward to bringing our unique and high quality beers for this community to enjoy.”
Two Roads Brewing Company was founded in 2012 by four friends who dreamed for years of starting a craft brewery. The company they created fosters a “road less traveled” philosophy in the beers they make and how they make them. In that spirit, Phil Markowski, their award-winning Brewmaster and 25 year craft beer veteran, has created an extensive lineup that takes a unique twist on classic beer styles.
“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to represent Two Roads Brewing and to work with their dedicated team. Our experienced team of sales professionals is excited to be launching Two Roads Brewing in the State of Maine,” said Tom Kilbride, General Manager of Pine State Beverage Co. “Together we will strive to grow distribution and market share for Two Roads Brewing Co. This is a great addition to our craft beer portfolio.”
President of Nappi, Frank Nappi Jr. also commented, “We are all excited about the opportunity to distribute Two Roads Brewing Company’s world-class portfolio of beers in our market. After sampling their beers and meeting their team, we knew right away that the brand would be a great fit for our organization and the Maine craft beer scene.”
